The mainstream media buzzed that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. election to Congress in the 2018 midterm would inspire young women across America to speak out.
They didn’t see THIS coming.
A young girl, Ava Martinez, is creating an uproar on social media after mocking Ocasio-Cortez in a video — and what she said quickly went viral. Martinez poked fun of Ocasio-Cortez by pretending to be ditzy and idiotic — and many AOC critics say her performance was spot on.

The fast-spreading video had been seen almost one million times by early Wednesday.
Dressed in the trademark eyeglasses and red shade of lipstick of the Democratic Socialist, the video shows Martinez going on a minute-long rant that destroys all of Ocasio-Cortez’ political talking points. From her absurd stance on climate change to her advocacy for socialism, the young critic pulls no punches.
“Like, I’m Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, and like, I want to talk about, like, climate change,” the video begins. “Because, like, there’s no doubt cow farts are making the climate change.”
“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 — four months!”
“Like, at this rate, the world is going to end in exactly 12 years, and like, I’m only 29 years old now, so the world will be over when I’m only 37 years!”
She also went after the liberal lawmaker for AOC’s support of socialist nations like Venezuela.
“Like, I also want to talk about socialism because socialism is so amazing. Like, socialism is actually short for social media. Did you know that? I do social media, so I’m a socialist,” the girl said.
“And like three of the most successful countries in the world are socialist, too. Venezuela, Facebook, and Twitter are all very successful socialist countries.”

This sweet, adorable, 8yo actress is not only much cuter than the real #AlexandriaOcasioCortez but she’s also already much smarter too. 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. pic.twitter.com/QybovhN8WZ
