This afternoon, a video surfaced of freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing at her alma mater, Boston University. The video showcases Ocasio-Cortez’s immaturity (she’s only 29), the video led to criticisms from her twitter fans and other far-right twitter users.
A conservative Twitter user posted an edited version of the video with the caption “America’s favorite commie know-it-all acting like the clueless nitwit she is”. This silly finger wagging prompted many social media users to joke about living in the hyper-religious town from Footloose, where dancing is banned for being too fun, or some lame reasoning like that.
As many were quick to point out, Ocasio-Cortez’s dance was part of a 2010 Brat Pack Mashup to “Lisztomania” by the French indie pop band Phoenix (it should be noted that the Anonymous Twitter video that’s going viral changed the music to “Don’t You Forget About Me,” the Simple Mind song that served as the theme to The Breakfast Club). Along with a few other students, the future congresswoman danced on the roof of the College of Arts & Sciences at dawn to create a wholesome, fun video to put on YouTube. According to BU Today, the project was overseen by Assistant Dean of Students Daryl DeLuca, who helped the students scout locations and access various roofs on campus.
Here are few tweeta about the leaked video
That AOC video would be pretty devastating if her district included the town from Footloose.

The video clearly shows how ill-mannered and incredible Ocasio-cortez is when it comes to political affairs, a correspondent said “He wasn’t surprise by the policies AOC brings to the House” after watching the video & furthermore suggested AOC should be removed immediately
