This week is a short Yikes, but we have everything from flaky Instagram influencers to the President probs being a Russian asset!
Did you know who Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was a year ago? I didn’t, and unless you’re a Bronx native or spend a lot of time drinking at restaurants in Union Square, you probably had no idea either.
When she won the Democratic primary and then went on to oust a 10-term incumbent, media focused in on AOC and how she managed to upend politics as usual. Her grassroots campaign focusing on economic justice and progressive values was part of the larger wave of leftward motion this election cycle. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in particular earns the most ire from Right Wingnuts on Twitter and its fascinating to watch them try attacking her, again and again, to no avail. Each time a troll posts about AOC, she gets stronger.
I believe it’s because Alexandria Oasio-Cortez is the Ideal Millennial, and everyone railing against her (from Right Wingnuts to Centrist establishment Dems) are terrified.
