Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was sworn in Thursday to the 116th Congress, the most diverse in history. It was a triumphant day for Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, as well as her supporters and most people with brains.
But right wingers couldn't let the historic day pass without trying to bring down Ocasio-Cortez, as one of them attempted to do by digging up a eight-year-old video of her dancing on a rooftop. The video was filmed during Ocasio-Cortez's time at Boston University and the drag seemed to be that she...is unfit to serve Congress...because she's a good dancer?
Reader, you will not be surprised to learn that this tactical strike failed massively in the best way possible. The video quickly became a meme, set to some of music's all time greatest bangers.
There was of course fellow gay icon Carly Rae Jepsen:
Many assumed Ocasio-Cortez was too busy making herstory and stanning Valentina to notice her power rising with every new video, but of course our queen had to do it to us. "I hear the GOP thinks women dancing are scandalous," she wrote Friday morning. "Wait till they find out Congresswomen dance too!"
