It turns out AOC is just another ‘do as I say, not as I do’ liberal.
Is anyone surprised?
She is out on the campaign trail with Bernie Sanders, railing against millionaires and billionaires, but she apparently didn’t have a problem accepting money from left wing billionaire Tom Steyer in 2018.
AOC Slams Buttigieg for Being ‘Funded by Billionaires’ but Accepted Funds from Billionaire Tom Steyer
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) accepted a significant donation in August 2018 from billionaire and 2020 presidential candidate Tom Steyer.
Ocasio-Cortez criticized South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) during a rally for presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) Saturday in Los Angeles, California, for hosting a fundraiser with billionaires present, according to Fox Business.
For anyone who accuses us of instituting purity tests, it’s called having values. It’s called giving a damn. It’s called having standards for your conduct, to not be funded by billionaires but to be funded by the people, which is different. Let me tell you something… I go to work all the time and I hear people say, “what will my donors think?; I hear that phrase. And I hear and I see that billionaires get members of Congress on speed dial and waitresses don’t, okay? There’s a difference.”
The long-time Democrat gave $2,700 to Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign on August 29, 2018, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics.
It’s different when she does it.
Watch her lie with a straight face:

How sadly typical.
