As we told you earlier, the GoFundMe that Matt Walsh set up to raise money for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s abuela in Puerto Rico was shut down after somebody in “the beneficiary’s family” said they would not accept the money (which was over $100,000 at the time). Refunds will be issued, but in the meantime, here’s how one media outlet reported on the GoFundMe effort:
I committed a “personal attack” on AOC by raising 100 thousand dollars for her impoverished grandmother pic.twitter.com/Q0iUB77j2i

Wow, did AOC herself write that headline?
The media tried to spin the $100k raised by Matt Walsh for AOC’s grandma into a nefarious conservative “attack” 😂 https://t.co/F4j3q7tDsY

It really sounds like something from the Babylon Bee:

There’s no shortage of people who wouldn’t mind being similarly “attacked”:
Can you attack me next? Pretty please!!!! pic.twitter.com/bF4SHn7RIy

Please attack me.

Please personally attack me too. I could really use 100,000$ 🙏

I would be open to the idea of suffering a similar attack. 😉

Maybe the Independent’s spin will catch on soon:
