Congresswomen Dance Too!

作者:Ashley Thompson 发布日期:1-5-2019

This is What's Trending Today...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever elected to the U.S. Congress. The 29-year-old New Yorker became famous after beating a long-time Democratic leader in the primary election and then winning the general election in November. Her fame has made Ocasio-Cortez a target for many conservative critics.

One critic recently shared an old video of Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter that was meant to harm her reputation. It shows her and other students during college dancing to music from the 1980s movie "The Breakfast Club."

A person using the name @AnonymousQ1776 wrote, "Here is America's favorite commie know-it-all acting like the clueless nitwit she is....".

The Twitter account has since been removed.

Ocasio-Cortez was a student at Boston University at the time of the video. She finished her studies in 2011 with degrees in international relations and economics.

On Friday, Ocasio-Cortez answered the critic with a new video of herself dancing outside her new office in Washington, DC. The young congresswoman points at the camera, smiles and dances to the song "War."

She wrote on Twitter, "I hear the GOP thinks women dancing are scandalous. Wait till they find out Congresswomen dance too! Have a great weekend everyone :)"

By midday Friday, her 11-second-long video already had more than 3 million views.

And that's What's Trending Today.
