Crazy, right? Not for AOC.

Everyone's favorite congresswoman/bartender blamed white people for her grandfather's death at the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee on civil rights and liberties on Wednesday.

Ocasio-Cortez claimed that "predominantly white" companies make climate change worse and have caused storms that took "predominantly black and brown lives." So apparently, hurricanes are now racist too.

She said, "My own grandfather died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. We can't act as though the inertia and history of colonization doesn't play a role in this."
