An 8-year-old actress’ impersonation of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is taking social media by storm.
“Like, I want to talk about, like, climate change. Because, like, there’s no doubt cow farts are making the climate change,” says the young girl, who sports red lipstick and AOC-style glasses. “Like, in July, the climate was 96 degrees and in February the climate was 36 degrees. OMG, like that’s a huge change in the climate in only,” — she pauses to count her fingers — “four months!”
“At this rate, the world is going to end in exactly 12 years.”
The video was originally posted Thursday by California Twitter user @SickenLaw. Attempts to reach the owner of the account were not immediately successful. The original post and reposts of it have been shared thousands of times.
“This sweet, adorable, 8yo actress is not only much cuter than the real #AlexandriaOcasioCortez but she’s also already much smarter too,” the post accompanying the video said. “I asked her to do this video because when #AOC is talking, this is what we’re all thinking. We’re better off with this sweetheart in Congress.”
The video touches on another subject near to the Bronx congresswoman’s heart.
“I also want to talk about socialism because socialism is so amazing,” the little girl gushes. “Like, socialism is actually short for social media. I do social media, so I’m a socialist.”
“Three of the most successful countries in the world are socialists, too. Venezuela, Facebook and Twitter are all very socialist countries. I have a lot of friends who moved to America from Facebook.”
