AOC Has Beef With Star RNC Attraction Kimberly Guilfoyle

The first night of the Republican National Convention featured a quick succession of speakers. The most remembered speaker of the night, however, was Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle. The former Fox News anchor spent the entirety of her oration screaming at the top of her lungs.

While shouting her speech, Guilfoyle proudly referred to her mother, Mercedes, as an immigrant. Guilfoyle’s mother was born in Puerto Rico. Puerto Ricans have been granted American citizenship since 1917. This led to an angry reaction from fellow Puerto Rican, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who took to Twitter to rip Guilfoyle.

Sharing a thread that explained why Guilfoyle’s Mother wasn’t an immigrant, Ocasio-Cortez wrote, “The woman the GOP picked as their ‘proud’ Latina to tout ‘immigrant experience’ didn’t seem to know that Puerto Rico is already part of the United States. It’s quite on message, bc it reflects their belief that Latinos aren’t real citizens, even when we are Native descendants.”
