Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) did an Instagram livestream last Wednesday night in which she talked policy while eating popcorn, sipping wine and building Ikea furniture.
While several video clips have been posted and discussed, the segment posted by the NRSC’s Matt Whitlock on Ocasio-Cortez talking about the military draft shows her behaving more like a self-absorbed teenage drama queen live streaming from her bedroom at her parents’ house than a grown up Member of Congress.
Ocasio-Cortez is seen kneeling on one knee as she leans her face into the camera reading a question from a viewer, reaching into a bowl of popcorn, stuffing popcorn into her mouth, chewing as she’s talking and then wiping her dirty hands on her pants.
“Um…would you support a female draft? So long as we have a draft, I support people of all genders being drafted. Equality!”
