Democratic Socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who brags that she is just a girl from the Bronx whom President Donald J. Trump is not ready for, may have been born in the Bronx and may presently reside in the Bronx but there’s a lot in between that spells E-L-I-T-I-S-T and/or S-W-A-M-P critter.
Like fellow comrades, it appears that what this young Commie is selling is an illusion to convince blue-collar workers and the poor that “I’m one of y’all.”
The 28 year old who “studied international relations and economics at Boston University and worked for Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA)” is not a poor girl from the Bronx and as with the business of the swamp may have been “chosen” for the role she is allegedly playing.

…“Well, you know, the president is from Queens, and with all due respect — half of my district is from Queens — I don’t think he knows how to deal with a girl from the Bronx,” Ocasio-Cortez told Stephen Colbert during an appearance on The Late Show.
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.
Around the age of five, Alexandria’s architect father Sergio Ocasio moved the family from the “planned community” of Parkchester in the Bronx to a home in Yorktown Heights, a wealthy suburb in Westchester County. The New York Times describes her childhood home as “a modest two-bedroom house on a quiet street.” In a 1999 profile of the area, when Ocasio-Cortez would have been ten years old, the Times lauded Yorktown Heights’ “diversity of housing in a scenic setting” – complete with two golf courses[…]
Here we go with the revisionist history AGAIN. Don’t hold your breath waiting for the Communist media complex to fact check their
socialist Communist darling.
