An attempt to discredit new USA congresswoman and leftist poster child Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with a video of her dancing as a student backfired spectacularly on Friday, triggering eye rolls and a barrage of whimsical memes.

The congresswoman, who has a strong social media presence, responded by posting a new video of her dancing in front of her office on Capitol Hill, writing: "I hear the GOP thinks women dancing are scandalous".

They have been relentlessly mocking her, and even released a video of her dancing as a college student on a rooftop in 2010.

Ocasio-Cortez has 1.88 million followers to Pelosi's 1.85 million.

One social media user complained that modern USA politics has begun to look more and more like a reality TV show and suggested that the two congresswomen should avoid contributing to that resemblance.

In December, Ocasio-Cortez likened her new plan to FDR's disastrous New Deal and LBJ's budget-swelling Great Society programs, both of which dramatically increased the size of the federal government. It wasn't as if Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy was railing against her dance moves.

"I think that it only has ever been radicals that have changed this country", she explained.

Her idea of radical is to make the U.S. a Socialist State. In Washington, I see people from across the political spectrum glued to their phones to watch Ocasio-Cortez make mac and cheese, talk openly about burnout, or livestream her swearing-in ceremony. "She is not. Because she is called the youngest woman in Congress allows her to play the victim". "So many people sacrificed so much for this to happen ― my mother most of all", Ocasio-Cortez wrote. Ocasio-Cortez tangled with House minority whip Steve Scalise on Twitter Saturday, who she questioned for not knowing "how marginal tax rates work". Franklin Delano Roosevelt made the radical decision to embark on establishing programmes like Social Security.

"In response, the deputy White House press secretary said, "Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez's sheer ignorance on the matter can't cover the fact that President Trump supported and passed historic criminal justice reform." and ". has repeatedly condemned racism and bigotry in all forms".
