  • 'Congresswomen can dance too', Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez laughs off attempt to discredit her

After a video of the young politician dancing in college remerged and went viral the day Ocasio-Cortez took office, Cher sent her an encouraging message.

Just days earlier, Ocasio-Cortez embraced the term "radical" and advocated for up to 70 percent tax rates for the country's top earners to transform America's energy industry in order to implement her environmental agenda. Her platform as a Democratic Socialist is to shake up the corporate-run political system and become a voice for working people.

Shifting the focus of the back-and-fourth to the remarks of other Twitter users, Scalise posted screenshots of responses like "snipe his ass" and "kick his cane", using them to argue the congresswoman has a crazed band of supporters.

Trump says government workers hurt by shutdown can "make adjustments"
Democrats have signalled they could accept a deal that precluded a concrete wall but provided funding for a steel barrier. With his negotiators preparing for the afternoon session, Trump said he didn't expect it to produce a resolution.

The New York's representative said in a "60 Minutes" interview set to air Sunday that a new marginal tax rate would affect Americans making more than $US10 million to help pay for the "Green New Deal".

Agreeing with a posit by Cooper that the Democratic Party has already "lost too much" by compromising with the GOP on certain things, she explained: "I think we've compromised things that we shouldn't have compromised, whether it's judgeships with Mitch McConnell, whether it's compromising on climate change. So many people sacrificed so much for this to happen ― my mother most of all", Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

On Friday, a video released online by a detractor showing a young Ocasio-Cortez dancing with fellow Boston University students to the Phoenix song Lisztomania in a remake of a mashup of scenes from the Brat Pack movies.

However, the England defender somehow managed to keep the ball out of the goal by the most minimal of margins. Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho hailed the performance of Bernardo Silva for victory over Liverpool.

"Mami mopped floors, drove school buses, + answered phones", Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

The trolling intended as a "gotcha" moment for the NY politician - who was sworn in to Congress Thursday, becoming the legislative body´s youngest woman ever - instead saw social media turn the video into a comical meme. "But once you get to, like, the tippy tops, on your ten-millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70 percent". In 2011, she graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in global relations. "But it means that as you climb up this ladder, you should be contributing more", Ocasio-Cortez said. "Abraham Lincoln made the radical decision to sign the Emancipation Proclamation".

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