Socialist Democrat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fails, yet again, to pull the wool over the eyes of her voters with the same sad lie that helped get her seat in Congress. Ocasio-Cortez, was originally busted by some super sleuth conservatives when she tried to build herself some street-cred and appeal to the urban voter by lying about her origins and claiming she was from the Bronx. The socialist was forced to revamp her whole website after that hubbub to hide her lie.
Well, she didn’t learn the first time because, oops she did it again. The silver spoon took to Twitter and post her own rendition of Jennifer Lopez’s song, “Jenny from the block”, which blew the heck up in her face after twp conservatives tag-teamed the lie, running Cortez offline.
As written by Zero Hedge:
“The socialist phenom also told the Washington Post “I wasn’t born to a wealthy or powerful family — mother from Puerto Rico, dad from the South Bronx. I was born in a place where your Zip code determines your destiny.”
Except Ocasio-Cortez isn’t quite the blue-collar champion she’s branding herself as. Breitbart‘s Josh Caplan is out with a “fact check” on the Democratic Socialist’s background – only to find she grew up in one of the richest counties in the United States.
Westchester County – which the Washington Post, in a glowing profile on Ocasio-Cortez, describes as only “middle class” – ranks #8 in the nation for the counties with the “highest average incomes among the wealthiest one percent of residents.” According to the Economic Policy Institute, the county’s average annual income of the top one percent is a staggering $4,326,049.
Yorktown Heights, specifically, offers a sharp contrast from Bronx living. According to USA.com, the town’s population is 81 percent white, and median household income is $96,413 – nearly double the average for both New York state and the nation, according to data from 2010-2014.
Not exactly Jenny from the block…”
