AOC Lands In Hot Water Again 

Daily Report May 24,2024

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) found herself in the middle of a social media storm after she made a ridiculous claim about former President Donald Trump.

On Thursday, Trump stormed Ocasio-Cortez’s backyard in a Bronx rally that many say is reminiscent of President Ronald Reagan’s rally in 2024.

Before the former president’s monumental rally, Ocasio-Cortez appeared on Spectrum News NY1 —a New York-focused news station—to discuss the rally. The radical lawmaker suggested that Trump could allow energy companies to raise gas prices if his campaign is successful.

“we just saw that the former president met with oil executives last week, saying ‘Hey, you give me a billion dollars, and I’ll make sure that you get the policies that are favorable to raising gas prices and making sure that a lot of these companies continue to price gouge without proper oversight or regulation,’” Ocasio-Cortez said. “So, the idea that he’d be bringing those down when he’s cashing in from the same folks that are bringing those prices up, I think is a little bit suspect. And again, I think the Bronx sees through it.”

Social media users on X responded to the Democrat lawmaker’s claim with fierce criticism, with many calling her a liar.

“Biden all but destroyed the energy sector in the U.S. to implement the Green New Deal despite the majority of voters opposing it,” one X user wrote. “@AOC is lying. She wants you to forget gas prices and grocery prices were much better under Trump.’

“Trump’s visit to the Bronx has really shaken AOC. 😂🤣 Every interview and post has her revealing just how out of touch and stupid she is,” another user wrote. “Price gouging” has been one of this administration’s blame games for the high gas prices.

“Even if AOC slept thru her classes at Boston U, she would know that increasing supply and reducing regulation will reduce gas prices,” one user wrote.

New York Councilwoman Vickie Paladino blasted Ocasio-Cortez’s statement, noting that everything the Democratic party has done in her state has raised gas prices.

“This is just one of the most insane things I’ve ever heard, even from AOC,” Paladino wrote. “Literally everything her party has done here in New York and nationally has caused energy prices to skyrocket. Gas, electric, everything. They’re deliberately, artificially, restricting energy supply while simultaneously implementing massive new efficiency mandates AND taxes… Yet we’re supposed to believe ‘price gouging’ is the issue to fear? Exactly how stupid does she think people are? Who believes this?”
