Before You Judge Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Dancing, Take A Look At These Republican Men’s Cringe-Worthy Moves

When a video surfaced of New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a Boston University undergrad dancing in a silly music video, conservatives derogated the younger Congresswoman for having a good time.

The Daily Dot reported that a QAnon conspiracy theorist tried to shame Ocasio-Cortez as part of a smear campaign by posting a 2010 YouTube clip that featured the activist with her colleagues parodying a dance sequence from the 1985 film, The Breakfast Club.

“Here is America’s favorite commie know-it-all acting like the clueless nitwit she is…
…High School video of “Sandy” Ocasio-Cortez,” wrote Anonymous Q.

But the attempted shaming of the 29-year-old representative for the 14th Congressional District quickly fell out of step and backfired.

Twitter came to the young politician’s defense and saw nothing wrong with a woman cutting a rug.

Many people found her even more appealing.


One user had a very valid query.

Soon, snippets of other politicians dancing began popping up to demonstrate how common tripping the light fantastic is. And how Ocasio-Cortez is so much better at it.

Nothing screams awkward louder than this display of Chris Christie dancing, and failing miserably, from when he appeared on The Late Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

If the Energy Secretary Rick Perry is trying to imitate a Mario Brother, then he is succeeding.

Even former President George W. Bush knew how to have fun, and nobody slammed him for it.

Just look at Donald Trump’s unfancy footwork during his appearance on SNL.

As Mark McHamill noted, “WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE!!??!!.”

Ocasio-Cortez unabashedly continued showing off her dance skills. And that is why we are so in step with her.

There is no doubt that in Congress, there are movers and shakers. Some are just better at it than others.
