New York Democratic and captain of the "squad" Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has received quite a bit of criticism for...well...everything because she's an idiot.
But now it's about the image that she portrays. She's often claimed to just be a “girl from the Bronx”, but it actually appears that this isn't accurate and that she actually grew up in a wealthy suburb in upstate New York.
Here's how her website describes her:
From an early age, Alexandria grew up with a deep understanding of income inequality. 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 in Yorktown — 40 minutes north of her birthplace. As a result, much of her early life was spent in transit between her tight-knit extended family in the Bronx and her daily student life. It was clear to her, even then, that the zip code a child was born in determined much of their destiny. The 40-minute drive represented a vastly different quality of available schooling, economic opportunity, and health outcomes.
It also looks like she even went by a different name while in high school at her uptown school of Yorktown Central High School.
Old yearbook photos of Ocasio-Cortez show that she went by the name of "Sandy Ocasio"
Ocasio-Cortez graduated in 2007 from Yorktown Heights, which is a middle-to-upper class area in Westchester County in upstate New York City.
Below is an image of Ocasio-Cortez in the yearbook.
Here is the photo with her name Sandy Ocasio:
The socialist tweeted a photograph of a plaque outside of her office in the U.S. Capitol.
“Don’t be fooled by the plaques that we got, I’m still / I’m still Alex from the Bronx,” she captioned the tweet.
Michael Knowles tweeted in response that the average home in her town where she grew up is over $1 million. So much for being Alex from the Bronx.
The average household wealth of the town in which you grew up is $1.2 million. https://t.co/4sLCLWfnCb

Biden: 'I Think We've had Enough Debates'
On Wednesday, Former Vice President Joe Biden said that it's time to wrap up the primary debates, and suggested that he is not interested in a final debate against his rival, Senator Bernie Sanders.

Scientists Beg for Fetal Tissue to Work on Coronavirus Vaccine
President Donald Trump banned the use of aborted fetal tissue in medical experiments and research. I believe this was a monumental step considering aborted babies are used to make vaccines and in medical research. You catch that? Literal babies who were murdered are harvested for their DNA and tissue.
It's unethical and disgusting to use the remains of aborted babies....and even worse is that fact that taxpayers were funding it.
