Hilarious: Matt Walsh Raises Thousands of Dollars for AOC’s “Abuela!!”


They say charity begins at home.

Or maybe, for AOC it could have begun at her Abuela’s home.

You may have read the story of AOC’s Abuela’s house reported on by Anthony T  this week:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hypocrisy continues…

In her latest tweet AOC posted photos of her grandmother’s  home that was damaged when Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017.

In the caption of the pictures she blamed President Trump for the condition of her grandmother’s house by claiming he blocked relief funds to Puerto Rico.

Users on Twitter blasted AOC for the tweet and pointed out that instead of buying a Tesla and two apartments maybe she should’ve used her 170,000 Congress salary on helping out her grandmother instead of relying on President Trump to do it.

Here’s the tweet that started it all:

Well apparently, someone got tired of the name-calling and blame-shifting and decided to put his money where his mouth is (unlike AOC who usually only puts her foot there.)


According to Fox News, Matt Walsh has decided to put up his own money to fix “Abuela’s” house:

At the time, Walsh reacted to her tweets saying, “Shameful that you live in luxury while allowing your own grandmother to suffer in these squalid conditions.”

The Democrat fired back, “You don’t even have a concept for the role that 1st-gen, first-born daughters play in their families. My abuela is okay. But instead of only caring for mine & letting others suffer, I’m calling attention to the systemic injustices you seem totally fine w/ in having a US colony.”

On Friday, Walsh launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to “Save AOC’s Abuela’s Ancestral Home.”

“One cannot be certain of the cost to repair grandma’s house, but surely most of the work could be completed for the price of AOC’s shiny Tesla Model 3,” Walsh wrote in the campaign description. “Sadly, virtue-signaling isn’t going to fix abuela’s roof. So we are.

Walsh continued, “Let’s all kick in to help save AOC’s abuela’s ancestral home. Any amount is appreciated, but the cost of a monthly lease payment on that Tesla is around $499… All proceeds will be donated to abuela, if she will accept them.”

The Daily Wire personality promoted the fundraiser on Twitter, revealing he kicked off the fundraising with a $499 donation, which he stressed is the cost of a Tesla monthly lease payment.

The #HelpAbuela campaign has already attracted big-name donors including Ben Shapiro, Candace Owens, and Dave Rubin.

The campaign has already raised over $60,000 in just the span of four hours and continues rapidly accept donations.

Here’s Matt’s tweet:

A Twitter war ensued, with Republicans finding the joke hilarious and donating generously…


…while Democrats fumed…!!

Matt Walsh responded to his haters with his dry humor:

Matt Walsh turned an angry hate-filled rant into a playful jest.

The Dem’s should just lighten up and laugh for a change.

If Abuela knew how rich she now is, she’d probably be laughing too.
