WaPo Gives Ocasio-Cortez Three Pinocchios for ‘Misleading’ Claims About Trump, Opioid Crisis

The Washington Post‘s fact checker gave Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) "Three Pinocchios" for her "misleading" claims about President Donald Trump's use of federal funds to address the nation's opioid crisis.

"Amount President Trump has transferred from other agencies to fund his ‘Build the Wall’ Emergency: $10s of millions, & has identified billions more. Amount he’s transferred to address the Opioid National Emergency: $0," Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet last week.

The freshman congresswoman's comments came in response to a C-SPAN tweet, which included a video of her questioning James W. Carroll, the White House’s director of drug policy.

"So, we’ve got two emergencies, one is treated with an actual action and the other is just to raise awareness," Ocasio-Cortez was quoted as saying in the C-SPAN tweet.

I wish the media woulod stop reporting on this idiot. If she got no coverage, she MIGHT go away.
I still can't figure out how a freshman in congress gets on such committies as she and the muslem trator. These people swore to uphold the constitution.

Her dark money is a high level scheme for a 29 year old. I don't think she is dumb at all.cortez was trained by Kennedy and Sanders and knows exactly how to run a con. FEC and ethics complaints won't slower her down.... Governor of Virginia was wearing KKK garbage in his medical Year book and hasn't missed a step. Democrats=Amunity.
