Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Responds To Dance Video Critics With More Dancing

  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

"But the only way we are going to get out of this situation is to be courageous", she said.

The victory has made her a key figure of the Socialist wing of the party, and Ocasio-Cortez has demonstrated a few times that she can respond swiftly with meaningless socialist ramblings.

While Ocasio-Cortez didn't provide examples of Republicans claiming dancing is "scandalous", her new video has been viewed almost 20 million times.

The video was actually created for Boston University's Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground, which provides "programs, events and experiences to students designed to encourage creative exchange of ideas, thoughts, beliefs and opinions".

"We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, health care, and education", Ocasio-Cortez said.

Why another dance video, of course!

Now that's how you handle the haters. Cooper responded with, "How can you say that?" and AOC replied, "When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy". Using different scenarios, he explains that "a 1 percent wealth tax on the wealthiest 1 percent of households above $10 million could raise about $200 billion a year, or $2 trillion over 10 years".


"Listen, let me just say this about Ocasio-Cortez". Underestimating her is how she won the primary in an upset over longtime Democratic lawmaker Joe Crowley in a safe Democratic seat that meant her election to Congress was assured.

When asked flatly if she believes Trump is racist, Ocasio-Cortez said, "Yeah, yeah".

By their calculations, Trump has uttered more than 7,600 untruths during the two years of his presidency - an average of 15 erroneous claims a day during 2018. "That doesn't mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder you should be contributing more", Ocasio-Cortez told anchor Anderson Cooper. AOC hasn't even been a congresswoman for a week, yet she is setting the terms of the debate inside the Democratic Party. "She was sworn in", Goldberg shared. "It requires risk to try something new, but so we - we know so much of what we've tried in the past hasn't worked, either".

Ally Sheedy, the actor who played Allison Reynolds in The Breakfast Club, and whose dance moves Ocasio-Cortez was imitating, said she was: "pretty happy 'bout it", later writing "I love this #teamAOC". Much of the attention is positive - she's earned a nationwide fanbase - but she has also earned a ludicrous level of criticism from the right wing over topics as trivial as her high school nickname.

Ocasio-Cortez went on to attend and graduate from Boston University's College of Arts & Sciences in 2011, with a degree in economics and global relations.

Eddie Scarry, a media reporter for The Washington Examiner, posted a photo of Ocasio-Cortez walking down a hallway alongside a caption that read, "Hill staffer sent me this pic of Ocasio-Cortez they took just now".
