What have I been telling you FOR YEARS? The Left lies, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is no exception.
Watch her in the video below, telling a fawning Stephen Colbert (can someone explain why ANYONE thinks this guy is funny and entertaining?), about how President Trump won’t know how to handle a “girl from the Bronx.”
Just like “Jenny from the block, right? Except that the Daily Mail has committed actual journalism (leave it to the British press to do the job our corrupt media won’t) and discovered that she may be concealing the truth about her tough, “working class” upbringing.
The hardscrabble biography of Democrat Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been called into question after the revelation that she grew up mostly in wealthy Westchester County.
Though Ocasio-Cortez, 28, was born in and currently lives in the Bronx, county land records show her late father Sergio Cortez-Roman bought a quaint three-bedroom in Yorktown Heights, New York in 1991, when she was about two.
It is an apparent contradiction with the candidate’s official biography, which states in part: ‘The state of Bronx public schools in the late 80s and early 90s sent her parents on a search for a solution. She ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40 minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx.’…
Ocasio-Cortez was born in 1989 to parents Sergio Ocasio-Roman, who was born in New York City, and mother Blanca Ocasio-Cortez, a native of Puerto Rico.
Her father, who tragically died from lung cancer in 2008, was an architect and the CEO of Kirschenbaum & Ocasio-Roman Architects, PC, which focused on remodeling and renovations.
Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign biography describes her father as ‘a small business owner’.
‘She grew up in a working-class household where her mother cleaned homes and everyone pitched in on the family business,’ the bio continues. …
Initially, the young family lived in Parkchester, a planned community of 171 mid-rise brick buildings in the Bronx.
When she was about five, Ocasio-Cortez’s family moved to the house in Westchester County, a detail that the bio omits.
The timing of the move is confirmed in a New York Times interview with mother Blanca Ocasio-Cortez, but the report does not address the discrepancy.
The home, a single-story with a finished basement, most recently sold for $355,000 in 2016. The median annual income in the area is $116,741, compared to the median annual income of $48,315 in Parkchester’s zip code, according to the latest Census data.
‘It was clear to her, even then, that the zip code a child was born in determined much of their destiny,’ Ocasio-Cortez’s official bio reads.
Apparently not, my commie friend, because the zip code one is born in does not determine the school’s she attends, as your story illustrates.
Of course, don’t expect the corrupt media to tell the truth about this woman any more than the did about the One, our first affirmative action president.
Let me state the obvious again: the Left lies.
