Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been filmed grooving along to protesters who chanted ‘AOC has gotta go’ while backed by a drum beat at a fractious town hall meeting.  

Protestors confronted the second-term congresswoman at a town hall in Queens in Tuesday night.

The grinning congresswoman shrugged off the aggressive criticism as she sipped from a water bottle and began to move her shoulders in beat with the chants.

She sat on a stage throughout, and continued to smile even as one furious woman appeared ready to combust with rage while screaming herself hoarse from the seats. 

Despite AOC’s famously progressive bent, the crowds showing up to protest her candidacy claim she has moved too far away from her original, anti-elitist platform and turned into one of the politicians she was elected to replace.

AOC has form for challenging those who disagree with her, but this is the first time she has done so via the medium of dance.  

In a recent interview with GQ, she blamed a countrywide hatred for ‘women of color’ for her fear that she may not be alive by September.

‘People ask me questions about the future. And realistically, I can’t even tell you if I’m going to be alive in September,’ she told the glossy magazine.

The profile, however, bills her as ‘the political voice of a generation—and a cultural star whose power transcends politics,’ a title that, based on the complaints of some of her constituents, she may be having trouble maintaining.

This is the second town hall event in recent days at which the progressive politician has faced heckling for her actions in DC.

Last week, she was booed at a town hall in the Bronx. Her former supporters challenged her decision to continue sending military aid to Ukraine.

‘You voted to mobilize and send money to Ukrainian Nazis,’ he shouted. 

‘You have done nothing. Tulsi Gabbard has shown guts, where you’ve shown cowardice,’ he continued, making reference to the former Democratic presidential candidate’s public decision to leave the Democratic party last week.

The interruption was met with a mix of shouts – and some applause – as the congresswoman asked the men to wait their turn, as there was apparently a line of constituents waiting to ask AOC questions.

Throughout her relatively brief time in Congress, the outspoken politician has been called out on her behavior a number of times – and with growing frequency, by those from her own party.

She has apparently become well-known in the world of high-fashion and has appeared on the covers of not just GQ, but Vanity Fair wearing stunning and expensive outfits.

Last September, she strutted the red carpet at the Met Gala in a designer gown with the words ‘tax the rich’ emblazoned in red lettering on the back. Her roughly $10,000 worth of dinner tickets to the posh event were reportedly comped by the museum.

Following her bold red carpet look, her official website began selling nearly $60 sweatshirts with the same slogan as her Vogue-approved look.
