Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez melts down after being caught in lie about being from the Bronx

How can you tell when newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is lying?  Either her lips are moving, or she’s busy posting something to Twitter.  On Thursday, she posted a tweet with a picture of the plaque on her new Congressional office, declaring to her followers that she’s still “Alex from the Bronx.”

“Don’t be fooled by the plaques that we got, I’m still / I’m still Alex from the Bronx,” she wrote, surrounding the statement with musical notes.

Michael Knowles reminded Ocasio-Cortez of her actual background:

That didn’t sit too well with Ocasio-Cortez, who claimed she “was scrubbing those households’ toilets w/ my mother that I saw and breathed income inequality.”

Others took her to task as well:

Ouch…

And on it goes.

Knowles, by the way, wasn’t finished:

Ocasio-Cortez added:

Wow.  Twitchy asked, “are Democrats really ‘sending us their best’?”

Good question.

Newsmax TV’s John Cardillo weighed in:

Which prompted Ocasio-Cortez to continue her meltdown:

All she had to do was correct Knowles, Twitchy said, but she instead chose to play the victim.  And she wasn’t finished:

Twitchy responded:

No one it trying to take the Bronx from Alex, they just want her to be honest and stop pretending to be someone she’s not. This ain’t rocket science.

Perhaps not to most people.  But then again, we’re not talking about MOST people here…
