Media Manufactures Controversy over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Dancing Video

Her suggestion to tax the ultra-rich as much as 70 percent is likely to get as much attention as the recently-revealed and now-viral clip of a college-aged Ocasio-Cortez mimicking an iconic scene from the iconic 1980's movie "The Breakfast Club". Personal attacks on Ocasio-Cortez do not work because she has always presented herself as a person first and politician second.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) had the flawless response for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) over the weekend after her supporters threatened him following a social media disagreement between the two opposing politicians. "Have a great weekend everyone".

Many netizens chose to remain neutral and suggested that instead of fuelling the scandal, Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib should focus on the job that they were elected to do. "It also shows your haters are desperate and pathetic, keep being you".

After some back-and-forth between the pair, Scalise tweeted screenshots of some responses from Ocasio-Cortez's supporters in which they said "snipe his a**' and 'kick his cane". And she's all joy in it.

On Wednesday, the night before Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was officially sworn in as the youngest woman to ever serve in Congress, a video of her dancing surfaced online.

"You know, you look at our tax rates back in the '60s".

Eddie Scarry, a media reporter for The Washington Examiner, posted a photo of Ocasio-Cortez walking down a hallway alongside a caption that read, "Hill staffer sent me this pic of Ocasio-Cortez they took just now". The connections she made with the staff there, called Brand New Congress, supported her run against the 10-term 14th District incumbent, Crowley.

"I think that it only has ever been radicals that have changed this country", she explained "Abraham Lincoln made the radical decision to sign the Emancipation Proclamation". Ocasio-Cortez accused members of the GOP, who criticised the slur, of hypocrisy, stating that they did not react that harshly after a tape of Trump's notorious "locker room talk" from 2005 surfaced amid the 2016 presidential campaign.

"Yeah. Yeah. No question", Ocasio-Cortez replied when asked if Trump is racist.

"On the other hand, if you can't take the heat, then get out of the kitchen", she added.
