Conway Calls out AOC Condemning the Conditions at the Border After Voting Against the Humanitarian Aid Package

Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway called out Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) for criticizing the conditions at the border after voting against a humanitarian aid package.

On Monday, Ocasio-Cortez visited a detention facility at the border to analyze the conditions. She took to Twitter and accused Border Patrol agents of threatening her. The congresswoman also accused the facility of forcing migrants into outrageous conditions, including allegations that detainees were forced to drink from toilets.

While Ocasio-Cortez gave her side of the story, Border Patrol agents claimed it was false. Sources from the facility told the Washington Examiner that Ocasio-Cortez was the one acting in a threatening manner. And, as IJR reported earlier, former Border Patrol Chief Ron Vitiello claimed the agency has protocols that would prevent the conditions the congresswoman described.

Because of the conflicting reports, Conway believes that Ocasio-Cortez was stretching the facts to make the situation worse than it actually was. During an interview with “Fox & Friends,” Conway claimed Ocasio-Castro has no grounds to criticize Border Patrol when she wouldn’t even vote in favor of increasing humanitarian aid funding — as she did last week.

Watch Conway’s comments:

“Chuck Schumer wants to talk about photo-ops. I saw one yesterday. It’s called, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez going down to one much these facilities and making this outrageous claim that a woman is drinking from a toilet — which everybody who has control over that facility, control for the Border Patrol says that is not true. They’ve not heard of this. And then when she was challenged by one of the few reporters who actually ever challenges her facts, she put the window up. Don’t let the air-conditioned out! She put the window up. And people need to challenge this because she is one of 95 people — Democrats — who voted against the aid package.”

Conway added, “You either want the humanitarian aid — the $4.6 billion — to go and help or you want the photo-op.”

AOC has become a true liberal democrat in such a short time! If the truth doesn’t suit your agenda a
“ big lie is ok”. Our country is going down the toilet thanks to liberal thinkers, apparently they care not for their future or the future of their children.

This twit AOC never met a camera or a lie that she doesn’t like. So young and so noisy. And such a waste of time. Just wish the cameras would stop following her. Looking at the photo above that gadget looks very clean and very efficient considering the number of people down there.
Conway is one smart woman. She is never off her game no matter what the subject.

Well she had to go visit somewhere; I guess between our detainment facilities or Auschwitz, the easier choice was made.
