AOC Mocked Trump’s Visit to the Hood; She Isn’t Laughing Anymore

You know Democrats are in a panic when the party that wants to take God out of everything suddenly starts praying. Former President Trump held a massive rally in the South Bronx on Thursday, leaving New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling on the heavens in sheer desperation.

The Bronx native, in her infinite wisdom, retweeted a post predicting that Crotona Park, where the rally was held, would be a “muddy MESS tonight for the Trump rally.” She smugly added, “God is good,” complete with a praying hands emoji. How original.

It turns out that AOC not only took the Lord’s name in vain but was dead wrong about the muddy mess. Pictures and videos reveal that the skies cleared up, and the rally drew several thousand supporters. Law enforcement sources reported that 8,000 to 10,000 people attended.

The crowd that couldn’t even get into the rally was massive, dwarfing any audience Biden could summon. Talk about a turnout.

Trump told the crowd they would bring safety back to the streets, success back to the schools, and prosperity back to every neighborhood in every borough of the greatest city in the land. He highlighted how his policies would benefit Black and Hispanic communities, noting the significant negative impact on these populations due to job and housing losses.

Reverend Rubén Díaz, former New York State Senator and Democrat-turned-Trump-supporter, joined Trump on stage to mock AOC’s prophecy. He pointed out that her prediction of rain failed spectacularly, as the day turned out beautiful. He added that not only did the crowd want Trump in the Bronx, but even the weather seemed to favor his presence.

Ever the strategist, Ocasio-Cortez told Spectrum News that Trump was trying to “trick” Bronx residents. Meanwhile, rally attendees had some choice words for her. One supporter said she needed to stay out of the Bronx, while others pointed out she has done nothing for the borough.

Even CNN couldn’t deny the rally was a hit, noting that attendees were mostly residents of the deeply blue borough. Bronx residents were thrilled, with one saying this was the first time a President had come to the “hood.”

The success of the Trump rally in deep blue New York shows that even in the bluest cities, people are fed up with the status quo. Ocasio-Cortez miscalculated the frustration many Bronx residents feel over the economy and the focus on illegal immigrants rather than New Yorkers themselves. It looks like praying for your opponent’s failure isn’t the best strategy, after all.
