Ever since Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) defeated longtime Congressman Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary, conservatives have made a myriad of digs at the young, liberal congresswoman.

This time, they really outdid themselves.

On Thursday, the Twitter account “AnonymousQ,” likely named for the right-wing conspiracy theory, posted a video of Ocasio-Cortez dancing during her time as a college student at Boston University. The 2010 video of Ocasio-Cortez was BU’s version of a viral video sensation from the time of a dance montage scene from the “Breakfast Club” that was set to indie band Phoenix’s “Liszomania.” After it went viral, it spurred the creation of additional videos.

Though the tweet was an attempt to dis Ocasio-Cortez, the Twitter user was swiftly mocked for revealing that Ocasio-Cortez once danced.
