Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is making Congress fun again.
The youngest woman to ever serve in Congress responded to right-wing trolls’ laughable attempts to “smear” her using a video of her dancing in college with a brand, spankin’ new video of her own.
“I hear the GOP thinks women dancing are scandalous. Wait till they find out Congresswomen dance too!” Ocasio-Cortez captioned the video, in which she dances outside and into her new office while lip-syncing to Edwin Starr’s “War.”

While conservatives are out here getting mad about women dancing and appointing rapists to the Supreme Court, Ocasio-Cortez is positioning herself to more adequately represent the next generation of voters. She has once again proven that she is relatable, fun, and capable of taking a joke at her expense—and then flipping it on its head.
