Fox News host Martha MacCallum has cut through the noise and given Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) a devastating new nickname to reflect the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party.
MacCallum detailed New York City Mayor Eric Adams’s plan “to build a tent city in AOC’s District in the Bronx to house” the migrants sent north by Republican governors.
However, open-borders advocate Ocasio-Cortez objected to Adams’s plan because it will be built in her district.
As many have pointed out, AOC’s reaction is a classic case of “not in my back yard” or “NIMBY.”
“Ocasio-Cortez voiced her concern that it was in a flood zone, then Adams caved to her demands and now it’s being moved a few miles away to Randall’s Island,” MacCallum said on Fox News’s “The Five.”
“I remember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez going to the border and she was practically in tears about the toilets that were sinks, right.
“Now she is the Mistress of NIMBY.
“She’s like, ‘Not in my back yard. Do not let these people in.’
“I am so blown away by the hypocrisy of this story, whether it’s Martha’s Vineyard or New York.
“I don’t care. I’m not even taking a side.
“Just stand by what you say, right?
“If you believe that these people are mistreated, you should be rolling out the red carpet in the Bronx and making sure that you are taking excellent care of them.”
Co-host Jeanine Pirro said:
“Right now you’ve got the hypocrites who are like, we love all the immigrants, but don’t you dare bring them to the Bronx, don’t you dare bring him to Martha’s Vineyard, don’t you bring him here or there.”
“I think we can get to a place with a better solution here,” Ocasio-Cortez said when asked about the tent facilities being built in the Bronx’s Orchard Beach parking lot.
“It’s important that we adhere to the spirit, and not just the letter of the law,” she said.
“All people, regardless of who they are, deserve dignified, humane shelter, and this is a situation that we are going to be of course, along with so many others, paying very close attention to.”
