AOC Gets Blasted Over PR Stunt At Border, Caught Redhanded ‘Staging’ Pics

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted pics crying at what appears to be a chain-linked fence near the Southern border at the Tornillo detention center. Now, she is furious after skeptics including her supporters did some digging and found out that the pics are likely staged and her emotions faked. You don’t want to miss this.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is having a rough week. The 29-year-old bartender has been grilled over her ridiculous statement about concentration camps. Now, making matters worse she’s getting blasted for allegedly sharing staged photos of herself down at the Southern border.

AOC claimed: “I’ll never forget this, because it was the moment I saw with my own eyes that the America I love was becoming a nation that steals refugee children from their parents & caged them. More kids died after this. To date, no one has been held accountable. We need to save these kids.”

To be clear, AOC did go down to the Tornillo detention center last year. That’s when these never before seen photos were taken. At the time, she was running for Congress. However, what people are accusing her of is staging these photos appearing to be extremely distraught, doubled over and crying near a chain linked fence.

The Daily Wire reported: “The photos were apparently taken at a Tornillo, Texas, detention center, but did not show the conditions the congresswoman was upset about, rather, the pictures were merely of Ms. Ocasio-Cortez looking sad by a chain-linked fence. Users online, many of whom identify as her supporters, mocked the ‘photo-op’ and suggested the pictures were ‘staged.”‘

Skeptics immediately glanced at these photos and believed them to be staged. People wanted to know what is she so upset about? Is she looking at migrant children being abused? Why does she look like she just witnessed a traumatic event? Why can’t we see what she is looking at?

Well, internet sleuths quickly located the chain-linked fence AOC was at, and it confirms she was staring at guards and dirt on the other side. 

“Real or staged? AOC shares photos from her 2018 visit to the border and people have questions,” Twitchy reported. They additionally reported Americans were blasting the New York Congresswoman with “memes” about her allegedly staged photos. Even her supporters are upset at that she is caught faking her emotions.

“I love AOC but these images feel so staged, it undermines her credibility on these issues. This crisis is not about  ‘striking’ photos of a Congresswoman, it is about DYING CHILDREN,” tweeted Twitter user “Momo.”

“If these photos were about the camps, the photos would be of the camps! The comments are about the main subject of the photos. The criticism is not directed towards an agreement or disagreement of the situation, it is towards an obvious PR stunt USING the children as props!” tweeted Sandra K.

“All AOC had to do was literally walk a few feet to her left to get around the barrier she’s looking longingly through,” added Twitchy. 

Caleb Hull, a conservative journalist, also found photos of where she was standing and tweeted, “Just… go around the fence @AOC.”

The 29-year-old Congresswoman is refusing to comment on the alleged staged photos, which means she is not denying what has been uncovered about her “photo-shoot” down at the border. Now, she is getting torched for voting against funding those detention centers.

AOC, with Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley were the only Democrats to just vote against Nancy Pelosi’s bill that would deliver the much-needed funds that would go to those detention centers. So, she posts dramatically staged pics crying in front of a detention center, and at the same time, she is voting against funding them?

Talk about a true hypocrite. Instead, AOC and her cohorts want to abolish ICE. 

“A divided House approved a contentious $4.5 billion emergency funding package to address the border crisis Tuesday,” reported Democracy Now. “Four Democrats voted against the bill: Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib. Last week, the progressive congress-members issued a statement condemning the bill and calling for the abolition of ICE.”

Can you imagine if a Republican staged photos? The leftist media would be going nuts. They would be saying they are using a real humanitarian crisis as a prop to further their own political career. It shows their true colors. They don’t really care about these migrant kids. They only care about making headlines. We could say the same thing about AOC.
