Ocasio-Cortez Tries To Blame Republicans For Historic Flash Flooding in DC

2.79 inches of rain came down in just one hour in Washington D.C.

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has attempted to blame Republicans for the historic flash flooding that occurred in the nation’s capital Monday. 

2.79 inches of rain came down in just one hour in Washington D.C., which beat the 1945 record of 2.05 inches in the same period, The Washington Post reported.

But AOC seemingly blamed Republicans and their support for the fossil fuel industry for the reason behind the flooding.

“Unprecedented flooding is quickly becoming a new normal,” she tweeted.

“Despite that, Republicans are tripling down on fossil fuels w/no plan to transition off them, or make the critical infra investments we need to prep for the climate crisis.”

“Climate change intensifies flooding, wildfires, & extreme weather. It’s more than 1 day or 1 storm; it’s all of them.”

“Places are flooding where they haven’t before; there are 90-degree days in Alaska in June.”

“The GOP will mock & sow confusion until it’s their home swept away,” she added.

But Ocasio-Cortez failed to explain how fossil fuels and Monday morning’s historic flooding were related.

Her claims are not surprising though, as she blamed weather calamities on her political opponents.

In May, AOC attempted to convince her social media followers that Washington DC tornado warning was linked to “Climate Change” but ended up getting schooled by a meteorologist.

After attempting to blame the weather on a “climate crisis,” Ocasio-Cortez was promptly shredded by renowned meteorologist Ryan Maue, who accused the radical New York lawmaker of not understanding “the difference between weather and climate.”

Following a brief, and rare, tornado warning inside the Beltway, the freshman congresswoman began by sharing a short video on Instagram showing the conditions outside, as heavy rains drenched the region.

“There’s people stuck outside. We need to get them out,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
