AOC complained today that her grandmother’s roof in Puerto Rico is still damaged after 2017’s Hurricane Maria and blames Trump for ‘blocking relief money for PR’:
Just over a week ago, my abuela fell ill. I went to Puerto Rico to see her- my 1st time in a year+ bc of COVID.
This is her home. Hurricane María relief hasn’t arrived. Trump blocked relief $ for PR.

Actually, Trump delayed money because of corruption in Puerto Rico and wanted to ensure that the money was appropriately spent.
But even despite all of this, why is AOC waiting on government funds to fix her grandmother’s roof? As many pointed out in response to her tweet, why isn’t she giving her grandma money to fix it?
You make at least 180 grand a year and you have no children or dependents. You can’t give your own grandmother enough money to fix her roof and maybe buy some quality furniture? Horrible selfishness on your part. Shameful. https://t.co/0OGMwbbzxy

You’re a wealthy and famous politician. You can’t spare a couple bucks to spruce up your “abuela’s” home? https://t.co/BnkLCVFB5K

AOC is willing to redistribute everyone’s money but her own. https://t.co/gtBcejObCm

Honey, you drive a Tesla and have two apartments. If your grandmother is living poor that’s because you don’t help her out. I’m surprised that a socialist wouldn’t redistribute that wealth to their grandma. Sad! https://t.co/rJVSM2HOWR

You earn an annual congressional salary of $174,000 and you are blaming your grandmother’s poor living situation on a single term of Trump’s presidency? https://t.co/Q0uaiJIrAc

Kind of shitty that you bought a $59,000 Tesla instead of helping your abuela. https://t.co/V0j1VCjXgk

Leave it to AOC to politicize her Grandma’s broken roof. She deserves all the tweets like this she gets.
