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.
Here is America’s favorite commie know-it-all acting like the clueless nitwit she is…

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

Video is about to surface of @AOC filling in for @kathleenhanna at a Bikini Kill show, plus some damning footage of her hanging one-armed off a helicopter and plucking a koala bear from a forest fire. She’s preparing her resignation as I write this.

in an alley on K Street a young Republican hands a briefcase to a shadowy figure. He opens it to find it filled with cash. He hands the Republican a preschool drawing by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez where she drew…outside the lines
The Republican smiles and walks off into the night
