Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the darling of the socialist left.
They are hoping she can transform the United States into a socialist country.
But she will have a harder time doing that after being caught in an insane lie.
Since taking office, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become one of the biggest names in Democrat politics.
Skyrocketing to the top out of nowhere, there have been a lot of questions raised about her, including her personal life.
In recent days The Hill released an exclusive interview with Ocasio-Cortez’s mother, where a number of personal questions are asked.
The main question is about her love life with her long-time boyfriend.
Ocasio-Cortez’s mother tells The Hill she hopes they get married soon.
In response, Ocasio-Cortez herself uses the article to blast the media, saying:
“You know, when I got to DC I was told that it’s considered “off-limits” to report on a member’s family, love life, etc. Unsure why that consideration is suspended for me.”
She is attempting to play victim status for something she claims is normally off-limits for politicians.
But while many are accepting her claim to victimhood, others are questioning the veracity of her claim.
The Daily Caller looks into that question and reveals that there is no expectation of major privacy while in public office.
President Donald Trump is the best example of this.
There is nothing in his past or his family’s pasts that is off limits.
Even his 12-year-old son Barron is fair game, not being able to leave the house without media attention.
But Trump isn’t alone.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is single, constantly faces scandalous rumors with no facts.
The fact that he is 63 years old and single results in vicious rumors about his sexuality, with many claiming he is a homosexual.
In fact, last month, a major gay news source in Washington, D.C. featured his picture on the cover of a story about “D.C.’s most eligible LGBT singles.”
The Daily Caller also posts a large list of headlines showing how personal lives are constantly made into news stories.
A Heavy story questions, “Is Susan Collins Married? Does She Have Children?”
Newsweek makes a crazy claim about Trump’s wife Melania, stating that “Melania Can’t Wait to Divorce Donald Trump and Punishes Him With Her Fashion Choices, Omarosa Claims.”
Even Fox News gets in on it, writing a story about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s wife titled, “3 things to know about Ashley Kavanaugh.”
The Daily Beast throws out salacious rumors as facts in an article titled “Two Members of Congress Were Rumored to Be Having an Affair. He May Be the Next Speaker. She’s Out of a Job.”
These are just a small number of countless stories about modern day politicians.
In the 21st century, this is commonplace.
But Ocasio-Cortez continues to claim she is a victim.
In reality, the media is largely in favor of Ocasio-Cortez, who they constantly laud as being a rising star in the Democrat Party.
Do you think the media is unfair to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez?
