Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced a growing backlash from unhappy New Yorkers on social media Friday after images surfaced showing the self-described Democratic socialist dining in Miami Beach as COVID surged across the Big Apple.
Savvy users posted old tweets of the progressive lawmaker criticizing Senator Ted Cruz for taking a family vacation to Mexico during an “environmental crisis” in February 2021.
“Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico. Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff,” posted AOC.
“Maybe Mexico shouldn’t let YOU in the next time you try to run away from your job to sip umbrella drinks in Cancún,” she added.

'APOCALYPTIC': Extent of Hurricane Dorian’s Damage Emerges in the Bahamas, Rescue Efforts Underway
The “apocalyptic” damage inflicted on the Bahamas by Hurricane Dorian began to emerge Wednesday; with rescue crews arriving after the powerful storm stalled over the island chain for nearly 40 years.
“Hurricane Dorian carved a path of destruction through the Bahamas and relief officials on Tuesday were preparing for a humanitarian crisis after one of the most powerful storms ever to hit the islands killed at least five people, with the scale of the disaster as yet unknown,” reports Reuters.
“Right now there are just a lot of unknowns,” Parliament member Iram Lewis said. “We need help.”
“We are in the midst of one of the greatest national crises in our country’s history,” said Prime Minister Hubert Minnis.
“The devastation is unlike anything that we’ve ever seen before,” added the National Security Minister. “We’re beginning to get on the ground, get our people in the right places. We have a lot of work in the days and weeks and months ahead.”
“The U.S. may be getting a little bit lucky with respect to Hurricane Dorian, but please don’t let down your guard. As it heads up the coast, lots of very bad and unpredictable things can happen! On the other hand, the Bahamas have been devastated. We are sending crews to help!” posted the President on social media.

Two police officers were shot in Louisville, Kentucky Wednesday night after hundreds of protesters took the streets following a Grand Jury’s decision to not charge any members of law enforcement in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor back in March.
“Praying for the two police officers that were shot tonight in Louisville, Kentucky. The Federal Government stands behind you and is ready to help,” posted the President on Twitter.
“Our hearts go out to the two @LMPD officers who were shot. Please pray for them and their families, & pray for our city, and all who are in pain today. For anyone who is still out, please go home tonight. Violence doesn’t get us closer to a fair, just and equitable city,” added the Mayor of Louisville.
