A video of Ocasio-Cortez dancing in college just leaked and conservatives are losing it

On the very day that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was sworn in, the right-wing unveiled their latest “smear attack” on her — and it predictably collapsed in humiliating fashion, only serving to further emphasize what a relatable and genuine person she is.

A Twitter account called “Anonymous Q” posted a video of Ocasio-Cortez from college that shows her on the roof of a building doing the “Breakfast Club” dance with a friend.

The post quickly took off as right-wingers seemingly obsessed with the young Democratic Socialist furiously sent it viral as they do with every new story about her that drops — but their creepy fixation with her teenage years indicates that perhaps it’s not her politics they’re obsessed with.

It’s quite a cute and endearing video of a young woman having fun, and it’s unclear why anyone would look at this and think that it’s somehow evidence that she’s not qualified to represent her district in Congress.

After all, considering the excruciatingly detailed description of what Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was up to in college, she should be applauded for having her “leaked video” be something so wholesome instead of lurid tales of “boofing,” “devil’s triangles,” and committing sexual assaults after consuming enormous quantities of alcohol.

Twitter quickly pounced on AnonymousQ, brutally mocking them for scraping the bottom of the barrel for any possible thing to use against her — a clear sign of how “triggered” the right-wing is at a young, passionate, and determined woman with an agenda that directly challenges every heinous thing they believe in.

Here’s a collection of the best responses:
