Ocasio Cortez Spends Independence Day Slamming Border Patrol Officers With More Lies

WATCH: Ocasio-Cortez claims abuse at Customs and Border facility

Yesterday was America’s Independence Day.

So what did the Socialist Sweetheart do?

Well, she spent the day slamming those who PROTECT America’s sovereignty. Because of COURSE she did.

Fact Check: FALSE. (As always)

As Daily Wire notes:

The congresswoman’s claim is false: no one has corroborated her claim that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers told detained women to drink water from toilets if they were thirsty, a claim that Ocasio-Cortez made earlier this week and initially refused to give details on when she was confronted.

Ocasio-Cortez made her comment in a quote retweet of a journalist who showed pictures that were released by the Office of the Inspector General.

CBP officials and the Trump administration have warned for months that conditions on the border were dire and that more resources were desperately needed to address the current problem and to get to the crux of the problem.

Right. But you know… there was no crisis just a few months ago. Trump was MAKING IT ALL UP!

HUH? Well, I suppose that narrative wasn’t working for them, so they just did a 180. They do it all the time.

Anyway. She kept going:

Wow. The flag emoji really gives credence to what she’s saying!

And again… THIS IS FALSE.

Once again, Ocasio-Cortez is making a false claim about the situation. No members of Congress heard CBP officials tell women to drink water from the toilets.

The Washington Examiner reported that, according to CBP officials, a detained migrant “wanted water, didn’t know how to use the faucet in the cell, and drank from the toilet. She never told AOC that we made her drink from the toilet. AOC, of course, changed it.”

The event did not happen when members of Congress were at the facility and the detained migrant was not told to drink out of the toilet. The sink that is in the cells is connected to the toilet, context Ocasio-Cortez left out of her initial claims.

So AOC once again spent her day spreading lies.

It must be exhausting to be so full of crap.
