Just When I Think I Could Not Possibly Love This Goddess Right Here Any More…

“It is unsurprising to me that that Republicans would think having fun should be disqualifying or illegal.”

 

It is not news that small-minded, cowardly men are afraid of self-empowered, fully expressed, intelligent women.  So it is not entirely surprising that the GOP finds so much time to attack and troll Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at every turn.

Today’s attempt was particularly embarrassing, as they tried to embarass her for having performed in a dance video in college.

Here she is being freaking fabulous, WAY back in her 20’s.  (Psych!  She’s still in her 20’s!  Youngest person ever to serve in Congress!)

This piece was an homage to this famous scene from The Breakfast Club movie.

Like, she had friends and had fun in college.  The HORRORS.

So naturally, this Goddess, even though I didn’t think I could possibly love her more, knows exactly how to clap back, per usual:

As she says:

“It is not normal for elected officials to have a reputation for dancing well, and I’m happy to be one,” Ocasio-Cortez said Friday. “It is unsurprising to me that Republicans would think having fun should be disqualifying or illegal.”

Also perfect song choice of course:

War,  huh!

What it is good for?

Absolutely NOTHIN’

Say it again!

    That’s the worst the Pubs could dig up on her? Whoo–hoo. As 45 would say, “sad.”

    • Well that and that she’s a socialist, which of course is not true and again only underscores why we need an education system strong enough that grownups can understand the difference between socialism vs. democratic socialism, not to mention a viable environment in which to employ said education… ❤
