The American public is used to Democrat House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez getting herself in trouble with the outlandish things she says.
But she’s regretting what she’s done now.
That’s because Trey Gowdy left everyone’s jaws on the floor with what he said about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Far-left Democrat “Squad” member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) recently dug her own grave when she tried to argue that New York City seeing a 25% spike in homicides is simply because NYC citizens are worried they can’t feed their families.
Both conservatives and liberals alike criticized AOC for such outlandish “progressive” propaganda.
But then she went on the defensive, trying to say that GOP conservatives don’t take these urban issues seriously.
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. /6

Trey Gowdy couldn’t stand on the sidelines listening to her baseless claims.
Appearing on Fox News, Gowdy called out her so-called “progressive” political lies, asking if a one-year-old being killed in New York could possibly have anything to do with feeding families.
“Was the one-year-old killed in New York because that child was holding a loaf of bread?” Gowdy asked.
“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” the former South Carolina Representative added.
Gowdy is spot on.
Conservatives have been pointing out for years that inner-city violence and crime rates rising have everything to do with Democrat city officials mismanaging budgets and peddling far-left policies.
In fact, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio recently announced he will be cutting NYPD funding by a whopping $1 billion.
High population areas like New York City need more and better policing. Not less.
Underfunding critical institutions like law enforcement and school systems are exactly how crime rates rise.
