Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a name for herself through social media and attention-grabbing stunts.
But Ocasio-Cortez is trying to hide the bad news.
And this viral photo proved Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez guilty of this damning charge.
Ocasio-Cortez is one of the many Democrats who refuse to take a trip to the border to survey the damage caused by Joe Biden’s illegal alien invasion.
When Donald Trump was president — however — Ocasio-Cortez could not wait to make a spectacle out of the situation at the border.
Back in June 2019, Ocasio-Cortez posted pictures from the summer of 2018 when she visited a border detention facility to protest the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.
“I’ll never forget this, because it was the moment I saw with my own eyes that the America I love was becoming a nation that steals refugee children from their parents & caged them. More kids died after this. To date, no one has been held accountable. We need to save these kids,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.
The pictures showed Ocasio-Cortez — dressed head-to-toe in white — crying at the fence of the facility giving the impression Ocasio-Cortez was watching Donald Trump’s “stormtroopers” dragging innocent children away from their parents and throwing them in cages.
Before @AOC hit the national stage & was just a fairly unknown House candidate frm NYC,she took time awy frm her campaign & came dwn to #Tornillo to protest the #tentcity housing migrant children.I made these previously unpublished fotos a yr ago today. #elpaso #aoc #onassignment pic.twitter.com/SWyyI1XVt9

The “kids in cages” meme came from photos that spread like wildfire on social media but turned out to be from the Obama administration.
Conservatives mocked Ocasio-Cortez for clearly staging the photos as on the other side of the fence was an empty lot.
The left-wing website PolitiFact jumped in and claimed conservatives were lying and that what was really on the other side of the fence was an empty road that led to a lot where a tent structure was set up for illegal aliens.
“Photographers at the scene who took photos of Ocasio-Cortez say she was not facing a parking lot. Rather she was just beyond the toll plaza for the Tornillo facility, and she standing on a road that led to the Tornillo tent complex, which was in the line of her gaze, as she stood at the fence. Pictures by other outlets also confirm the location,” PolitiFact claimed.
With every so-called “fact-check,” the staff at PolitiFact proves they are left-wing propagandists whose sole job is to say true claims conservatives make are actually false because liberals would use different words to describe what happened.
“IMPORTANT CORRECTION: @AOC Was Weeping Over an Empty Road, Not an Empty Parking Lot,” conservative commentator Jim Treacher wrote.
But the real crimes Ocasio-Cortez is guilty of are political opportunism and hypocrisy.
Ocasio-Cortez was still a candidate for Congress when she visited the border and pretended to cry about seeing an empty road.
Now that Ocasio-Cortez is a member of Congress with the ability to solve the border crisis Ocasio-Cortez is nowhere to be found.
And the only explanation is the fact that Donald Trump was the president in 2018 and Joe Biden is in the White House right now.
