AOC named Goya Foods’ ‘Employee of the Month’, After Company Sees 1,000% Sales Spike

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) was named “employee of the month” at Goya Foods after sales spiked following her calls to boycott the company, CEO Robert Unanue told the “Michael Berry Show” on Monday.

“When she boycotted us, our sales actually increased 1,000 percent,” Unanue said on the radio show. “So we gave her an honorary, we never were able to hand it to her, but she got employee of the month for bringing attention to Goya and our adobo.”

In July, AOC tweeted that she would not be using Goya products while making Adobo seasoning, which is a well-known Latino household item and a part of the Goya brand. She later shared an alternative recipe to the Adobo seasoning.

“Our adobo sales did very well after she said ‘make your own adobo,'” Unanue said on the show.

AOC’s tweet came after Unanue praised President Donald Trump at a White House event this summer.

“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder,” Unanue said at the event.

The president expressed his support for the company, tweeting, “I LOVE @GoyaFoods!” and posting a photo on Instagram that showed him giving two thumbs up while seated behind a row of Goya Foods products.

Unanue said it was interesting that AOC facilitated the boycott against Goya, “going against her own people as supposedly a Puerto Rican woman, to go against people of her own Latin culture.”

Goya has doubled its production in recent months and has expanded with an $80 million facility in Texas to meet the increasing demand.

“She’s our hero,” Unanue joked on the radio show. “She helped our sales tremendously.”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
