Sen. Lindsey Graham went all out against radical socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for the glaring hypocrisy of her response to a border crisis under former President Donald Trump compared to the way she’s responded to the one caused by Democratic President Joe Biden.
“Where is AOC?” the senator went on to ask.
“Most Republicans want to make sure that we deal fairly with those who’ve been here a long time but we address the underlying problems of legal immigration,” Graham said to reporters Wednesday. “That’s not an unreasonable request.”
“There used to be Democrats that understood to get legalization on the table, you had to address the underlying causes of illegal immigration,” he added. “Those voices have been silenced. The open borders crowd is now firmly in control of immigration.”
“Where is AOC?” the senatorasked. “Why aren’t you at the border looking at the things being reported. If you were worried about children under Trump being in bad conditions, this is worse. If you’re worried about people having COVID outbreaks, this is the biggest COVID spreader in the entire country. So where are you?”
In 2018, AOC was the subject of photoshoot outside a migrant facility many criticized as feeling staged and politicized. The congresswoman also notably described migrant facilities under Trump as “concentration camps.”
During the Biden migrant crisis, however, Fox News has identified only two relatively mild tweets from the congresswoman commenting on the matter.
As noted by The Daily Wire, soon after Biden took office, the president did away with Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which hold foreigners who tried to enter the U.S. illegally in Mexico camps while they await hearings. Instead, the Democrat returned to a so-called “catch-and-release” policy in which illegal migrants are allowed to enter the United States.

AOC’s hypocrisy apparently knows no bounds. She’s totally willing to vilify Republicans, but when her own party is caught doing the same thing, her principles suddenly go out the window.
This is what it means when you say someone is inconsistent in the application of their alleged beliefs. If AOC is sincere in her worldview, she needs to apply those standards equally across the board. Otherwise, her worldview is not to be taken serious.
