    From The Hill

    Olivia Beavers of The Hill wrote:

    Newly confirmed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is brushing off a recently surfaced video that aimed to be an attack against her, instead touting her dancing skills.

    "It is not normal for elected officials to have a reputation for dancing well and I'm happy to be one," the New York Democrat told The Hill on Friday.

    "I think it is just funny what is considered to be disqualifying. It is unsurprising to me that Republicans would think having fun should be disqualifying or illegal," she continued.

    The video, which shows her happily dancing on a roof with other students at Boston University, surfaced a day before she was sworn into Congress on Thursday.

    The clip of her dancing, which aimed to be a smear against her, ultimately sparked a fierce defense of her moves online.

    "Here is America's favorite commie know-it-all acting like the clueless nitwit she is," reads the tweet from AnonymousQ1776, stating incorrectly that the video was from her high school days. AnonymousQ1776 later deleted their account.

    The edited clip from eight years ago, which is part of a roughly four-minute-long video, was filmed at Boston University, where she graduated from in 2011 with a degree in economics and international relations.

    The video shows a group of student dancers imitating dancing scenes from popular films in the 1980s.

    Ocasio-Cortez, 29, also nodded to younger candidates who are have or are hoping to run for office.

    "I think it is really part of the larger question about who should run and how we should run and I think it is great. You can be young and run for office. You can have joy in life and run for office," she told The Hill.

    Nice job, AnnoymousQ1776.  All you did was make me like AOC more than I already do.  The video was fun, it was carefree.  That's what young people do, regardless of whether he or she is running for office.  Remember the punk rock video of former Senatorial candidate Beto O'Rourke?  Yeah, that one.  All it did was make us like him more as well.

    Just saying.

    Yeah, this was a really silly attack. And it's nice to know the USA has politicians who can actually dance (the UK, not so much Razz )
