Truth-bombs descend like rain when AOC tries to shame GOP for voting ‘no’ on so-called ‘hate resolution’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was roasted after she attempted to shame Republicans “who voted NO” on the Democrats’ sham anti-hate resolution.

The Democratic socialist sneered at GOP lawmakers who didn’t condemn bigotry, as she saw it, by supporting their Democratic colleagues in passing the watered-down bill condemning all forms of hate rather than target anti-Semitic remarks from Rep. Ilhan Omar.

“Did they get called out, raked over, ambushed in halls and relentlessly asked why not?” the freshman congresswoman from New York asked in a tweet Thursday, calling out the lack of “outrage” over the Republicans who essentially voted against the broadened language of the bill.

It didn’t take long for the truth-bombs to descend.

President Trump slammed the vote as a “disgrace” and described Democrats as the “anti-Israel party.”

Ocasio-Cortez ignorantly blasted Republicans for condoning hate when even Jewish members of Congress would not vote yes on the weak-worded measure that only served to defend Omar’s smears. Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York condemned the bill citing Omar’s multiple apologies after repeatedly coming under fire for controversial anti-Semitic remarks.

Ocasio-Cortez’s defense of her friend and colleague was blasted on social media as Twitter users rebuked the congresswoman for her snide swipe at Republicans.
