Republicans Think Sharing This Video of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Dancing on a Rooftop in College Is a Sick Burn--Well, It Backfired Spectacularly

In yet another attempt to demonize Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Republican conspiracy theorists shared a video circulated by Dan Jordan of the newly-sworn in representative dancing in her college days.

The video was shared by a perpetrator of the QAnon conspiracy theory as an attempt to show "commie know-it-all" Ocasio-Cortez acting like the "clueless nitwit she is." It incorrectly stated that the video was from Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez's high school days, when it was actually a promotional video she took part in with other students for her alma mater Boston University (whose emblem is clearly visible across her shirt).

The edited video—which shows Ocasio-Cortez on a roof jamming a la The Breakfast Club—only made her even more endearing to Twitter.

Some quickly began reaching to justify resurfacing the video.

But it was too late—and even exacerbated the already embarrassing move.

It wasn't long before people started pointing out the hypocrisy.

Soon, users were sharing resurfaced photos of some of the Republican party's superstars.

Many pointed out what Brett Kavanaugh was reported to do in high school before still being confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Looks like yet another attempt to "own the libs" failed miserably.

"Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos..."

Heath Ledger's Joker says this in 2008's The Dark Knight but it could also apply to the presidency of Donald Trump. From defying subpoenas, introducing sweeping policy changes to his own staff through tweets, fostering a revolving-door administration, abruptly deserting allies, and, of course, the ceaseless bullying.

The President and the Clown Prince of Crime have both been agents of some degree of chaos.

So it may not come as a surprise that the Joker joins the campaign of a Trump-like character in the latest issue of Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child.
