Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Responds to Trolls with More Adorable Dancing

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Responds to Trolls with More Adorable Dancing

Starting out gazing at the new representative plaque outside her United States Capitol office, the leader than did a little dance to the hit song War by Edwin Starr.

Ocasio-Cortez responded by saying the left "loves to insult my intelligence".

The clip is part of a longer video the congresswoman featured in during her college days back in 2010 where her and some chums recreate the Breakfast Club dance to Phoenix's infectious tune Liztomania.

On Friday, Lou Dobbs guest Ed Rollins called Ocasio-Cortez a "little girl who wants to do pre-Reagan economics and 70% taxes".

The trolling intended as a "gotcha" moment for the NY politician - who was sworn in to Congress Thursday, becoming the legislative body´s youngest woman ever - instead saw social media turn the video into a comical meme. It now has nearly 2.4 million views. The account has since been deleted.

Donna Vekic storms over Sasnovich to set Pliskova clash — WTA Brisbane
The 22-year-old Vekic is to finish the week inside the top 30, guaranteeing herself a seeding at the Australian Open. The 26-year-old made 70 percent of her first serves, while Vekic managed just 47 percent of hers in the first set.

Scalise (R-La) and Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) got into a heated Twitter exchange on Saturday as they debated her proposed hefty tax rates for the wealthy.

It was driven at first by her unexpected defeat of Joseph Crowley, a member of Democratic leadership, in last year's primary, and then by some of her own criticisms of fellow Democrats and a sit-in in November at Pelosi's office.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez teased Brooklyn in response to a tweet predicting a higher profile for the Bronx this year.

"Once you get to the tippie-tops, on your 10 millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60% or 70%".

Previous efforts from conservative writers either making fun of Ocasio-Cortez's clothes or her childhood home, have generally backfired. Franklin Delano Roosevelt made the radical decision to embark on establishing programmes like Social Security. According to Wikipedia, while a student at Yorktown High School, she won second prize for her microbiology research project on the "effect of antioxidantson C. elegans' lifespan" at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. She also created a children's book publishing company, Brook Avenue Press, and worked as an educator for the National Hispanic Institute. Though only a freshman, she has become a popular voice for Democratic causes.
