These male politicians don’t quite have Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s dance moves

"Dancing" might be a stretch here.

A video started making rounds on conservative Twitter accounts of a college-age Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) dancing. The video was intended to shame the new Congresswoman but has since backfired.

The video of Ocasio-Cortez dancing with her friends has received over 5 million views, tons of support, and even some unearthed videos of other political figures.

Unfortunately, their dancing videos are not quite as cute and carefree as Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s.

Like this one of former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, breaking it down.

Or maybe this one of Rick Perry, the Energy Secretary and former GOP presidential candidate, when he was on the TV show Dancing with the Stars.

Turns out people have been dancing for years! Even before Ocasio-Cortez was filmed dancing as a Boston College student, former President George W. Bush did a jig himself.

Even our current president has danced before. In a 2015 SNL spoof, President Donald Trump busted a move.

The reaction to Ocasio-Cortez didn’t seem to bother to the 28-year-old Congresswoman a bit. She even shared a more recent video of her dancing right into her new office.

Perhaps this is the start of a new trend of politicians getting their groove on; it’s a long road to 2020, after all.
