  1. I’ve admired her for a while. Now I sincerely want to be best friends.

    • Des Nebula

      +Dom V. Shes not authentic though. Shes been exposed as lying about her background trying to claim shes a bronx chic to pander to her voter base. Another lying politican.

    • Marcianus Valerius

      Typical woman. You support people not based on substance but based on who act like the most likable circus clown.

    • fergal kilroy

      U need to get out more.

  2. Brian Harvill

    SOOOOO Immensely proud and BRAVO for tossing the hate right back in their faces…

    • Jonathan Doe

      Brian Harvill Who cares if she’s dancing or not? I don’t, I care that she’s a low IQ socialist who knows nothing about economics

    • señor bolainas

      “omg this dancing is so immature” said no conservative ever

    • Taylor Phillips

      Brian Harvill Putting the word democratic in front of something does not make it better… For instance the democratic peoples republic of north korea is still a dictatorship, just like this socialist nonsense is being disguised as something better than it is

    • Brian Harvill except there was no hate. At all. Try objectivity

    • Alptn Mrl730

      AOC is the biggest hater

  3. scareglare

    What’s supposed to be weird about that dance video? It seems really cool, she seems like an approachable person that I could get along with.

  4. Rick Diego

    She is soooo effin’ CUTE !! Keep dancin’ Sister !

    • DANTASTIC MANIA

      Yeah I guess if like stupid people? 😂😂😂😂😂

    • Shawn Pavlik

      She’s so DUMB though….”3 chambers of government, the House, the Senate, and the Presidency”…um what?

    • Alptn Mrl730

      keep dancing and doing nothing is the socialist credo

  5. IAmJakeM 66

    Don’t agree politically with her but I love her she’s so beautiful

  6. Steve George

    ‘humiliate’?? that vid was so wholesome, i needed an insulin shot afterward. bad troll is really reeeeally bad.

  7. Trent Wolodko

    Seems rather obvious why conservatives are going out of there way to smear her in anyway imaginable. She’s of a new breed of young, smart, charismatic progressives and now she’s got a significant soap box from which to speak. That doesn’t play well with the conservative baby boomer/Gen-X narrative which says today’s entitled Gen-Y and Millennials are just useless twits who couldn’t possibly lead. FOX and other conservative outlets are doing precisely what CNN and the rest of the old media did with Trump by treating her like a celebrity spectacle to be derided. If they’re not careful, they might give her billions in free advertising too, perhaps more.

    • Alptn Mrl730

      She is not smart and has no mind for details, facts, or hard work. However, what does that matter when you are a socialist?

    • Olaf Romsack

      Lennybird91 No, but we surely would call someone who thinks unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs and who makes ‘‘small’‘miscalculations of 21 trillion dollars dumb

    • Ray Sagastiano

      Smart? You’re delusional.

    • Alli Zappa McMinn

      Trent Wolodko
      A lot of baby boomers are Liberals.wth?

  8. PopeyeCove

    Never heard of her before, but after viewing this video I can say I like her. She seems very upbeat, positive and fun-spirited. Seriously, what’s not to like?

    • Brian Manning

      +Ricardo Magallon oh that’s right she’s not white so no way can she be racist. Thanks for pointing that out,my mistake

    • DANTASTIC MANIA

      She’s a socialist that wants to raise taxes in home state and hand out a bunch of governmental freebies in the process. While trying to create collapse in her states economy as a direct result. On top of that she’s a dumb waitress that got elected by stupid people being bought book line and sinker in her garbage socio-economic policies. Sorry but socialism has and will never ever work and please don’t even bring up Norway or any other Scandinavian country since they’re slowly trying to repeal a lot of their own socialist policies.

    • Jerry M.C.

      she’s a complete socialist?

    • skip 0464a

      the only thing not to like about her is the reality of her politics. she has definite ideas that sound great to someone who does not pay taxes but the reality of what she is asking for is not affordable. College for all? healthcare for all? these ideas cost money and there is no plan to pay for it. I wish she would put her energy into attainable ideas.

  9. Rafael Santos

    Can you imagine supporting a pedophile but raising your pitchfork at a grown woman dancing in honor of an iconic movie?

    • Vinnie D

      +Mohammad Choobdar Who is the warbringer? Certainly isn’t Trump. Way more wars and violence happening when the great divider, obama was in office. Obama created Trump. So thank you.

    • Matt Brown

      Rafael Santos bill clinton is a pedophile

  10. Rob Rodgers

    Congress needs more like her. She is going to make mistakes, but they will be her mistakes, not mistakes bought and paid for by the Koch Brothers.

    • topherh33

      lol GET REAL, SHE IS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR.

    • Vinnie D

      They will be her mistakes and she will blame others.

    • kctyphoon

      Rob Rodgers – yes – i agree.. lets elect more 28 year old bartenders to make decisions on behalf of the most powerful country in the world of geo-politics – as they give interviews saying the world will end in 12 years and openly say they have no plan, no regard, on how they plan to pay for anything. Thats only a minor issue – lets not worry about that, or the fact she doesnt even know what the US population is, or that fact that endorsing open borders and supporting illegal immigration – kinda doesnt work with socialism when that entire economy structure is dependent on all citizens paying a very high tax rate.. so lets invite more people in that you wont ask to pay taxes – and let the people that do absorb that economic blow. Great idea. Shes awesome.

    • Vinnie D

      +kctyphoon It’s just unreal isn’t it?

    • desade1776

      +Darth Veles yes at the cost of taxpayers and humanity!! Take thinking lessons

  11. iseeolly

    ohhh no…a woman with a personality in government….what ever next !……Go girl!

    • Richard Ramirez

      +Andy Karanja whats your problem?

    • Its Gwen

      If she runs for office she will be the first US Presidental candidate ive voted for. I’m 21 now. I skipped out The Hilary Trump election. But not this time. It’s time to get younger generations in the government, these old folks simply aren’t keeping up with technology or times.

    • more like a low life woman. Air head throwing herself into the lions den.

    • Vinnie D

      A personality? She is a god damn moron. She doesn’t even know how government works. But she blows her way to the top because women in politics are pretty gross, so this 4 come along and the old dirt bags want to keep her around.

  12. James W

    Both dance videos make her the coolest person in American politics.

  13. Dean Inouye

    Human young person has fun in college… HOW DARE SHE?

  14. ProblemChimp

    Must admit…after seeing our PM, Mrs May, creep into the view of the cameras like subservient Praying Mantis, this was rather wonderful.

  15. Constant Throwing

    Niiiiiice manufactured outrage.

    Great discourse, guys.

    • Jody Bruchon

      +DeclaringPond 22 “There are several twitter users posting that video with negative captions” – then it won’t be hard for you to find a single one (with a blue checkmark, not potential sockpuppets) that did so. Post one or shut up.

    • DeclaringPond 22

      +Jody Bruchon I mean, now it will since its old news and they probably already spammed their twitter with the Gillette ad. Let me guess, fake outrage too huh?

    • DeclaringPond 22

      Yes, because you guys totally dont get outraged over simple things. Oh hey look Gillette made an ad, oh hey look, outrage. Fake too right?

  16. Dumber than a bag of smart hammers.

    • Yes, we know you are, TPD.

    • You got me there, +Sunny . She’s a complete idiot and you know it.

    • Alptn Mrl730

      She is not conventionally pretty. Big long face; strident; etc. Don’t like

    • Mauro Figueroa

      She’s a complete idiot but she’s a congresswoman at 29 with multiple degrees. Idiots like her run this country while people who criticize her sit around their one bedroom apartment crying and driving their old cavalier to their shitty jobs

  17. Big Daddy Toyota Corola

    I didn’t see anyone outraged. All I saw was conservatives saying they’d smash her.

    • Kimyona SQD

      +señor bolainas oof

    • Big Daddy Toyota Corola but not because she was dancing. She reportedly admitted she’s a radical and wants to raise tax for the rich to 70%. She’s an idiot

    • Jody Bruchon

      Get a vasectomy, keep it a secret, smash AOC, show her the sperm count papers when she gets pregnant and wants you to marry her.

    • Suika Ibuki

      They’re outraged that they can’t smash.

      Also, you don’t see the outrage because people deleted their critical tweets when they saw how embarrassingly stupid it made them look.

  18. The Hip-hop historian.

    I love her already!

  19. mrkrabz123

    IM OUTRAGED OVER THIS
    said no conservatives lol

    • Who Carez

      The number may be smaller than pretended, but some ARE outraged. And this is disgusting

    • Suika Ibuki

      Yeah I know, it is amazing how people will backpedal and claim this is “manufactured outrage” just because they embarrassed themselves and it supports their crumbling ideological outlook

    • Suika Ibuki

      +Nerthus You have no room to criticize anyone for “zero critical thinking” and “no fact checking” when you haven’t checked your facts (people DID attack her for the dancing video) and are attacking straw men.

    • +Suika Ibuki Post proof of “people” attacking her other than the one anonymous twitter account created likely by the author of the original article.

    • +Who Carez Who was outraged? One fake twitter account?

  20. Zeus Mc.

    Girl dances, nobody cares except a couple of trolls, the media reports their is a storm, the masses lap it up.
