An unearthed video purportedly showing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing in a college-era video was shared by conservative Twitter accounts. *Note: The original song has been replaced to avoid copyright infringement.*
Calling Ocasio-Cortez a “clueless nitwit,” an anonymous right-wing twitter account shared a video of young people dancing, saying it showed “High School video of ‘Sandy’ Ocasio-Cortez.” The video has since been viewed more than 5 million times.
The clip appears to be an edited version of a 2010 YouTube video of Boston University students dancing to the song “Lisztomania” by Phoenix. The viral clip has been shortened to feature Ocasio-Cortez, and the music has been replaced with a mocking soundtrack.
