Alexandria Ocasio-Cortesz has a habit of getting in trouble with her ridiculous gaffes.
But this time Ocasio-Cortez went too far.
And Trey Gowdy had this message for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that stunned Fox News viewers.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez created another headache for Democrats when she claimed the recent 25 percent spike in murders in New York City was due to the fact that residents were scared they couldn’t pay their rent or find bread to feed their family.
Critics on both the Left and the Right lampooned Ocasio-Cortez for this outrageous lie.
Ocasio-Cortez defended herself on social media claiming her critics on the Right were pampered and sheltered suburbanites who don’t understand the realities of inner city life.
“I take this issue seriously. Unlike many of GOP pundits theorizing from suburban homes, I’ve had multiple family members shot, shot at, stabbed, etc. Crime + community violence isn’t some thought experiment to project your thoughts & theories abt communities you’ve never met,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on social media.
That set off Trey Gowdy who – in an appearance on Fox News – compared his 20 years as a federal prosecutor to Ocasio-Cortez’s work experience as a bartender before coming to Congress.
“God forbid my two decades in a courtroom compare with her experience as a bartender,” Gowdy began.
Gowdy then challenged Ocasio-Cortez to explain how the recent shooting death of a one-year-old in New York City could have anything to do with a desperate father looking for a loaf of bread.
“Was the one-year-old killed in New York because that child was holding a loaf of bread?” Gowdy added. “I mean, poor people are no more likely to cause you harm than rich people are. That is not the line of demarcation. It is not whether or not you are rich or poor; it is whether you are law-abiding or not law-abiding.”
There is only one factor fueling the spike in crime in New York City.
And that is New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio following Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s lead and cutting one billion dollars from the NYPD’s budget and eliminating the city’s plainclothes unit of 600 officers.
The smaller police footprint in New York City is allowing criminals and killers to run wild on the streets.
