Yesterday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was sworn into the 116th Congress, which gave cause for her supporters to celebrate and for her haters to try to unleash new damaging dirt from her past! So what did they find? Her nickname in high school was Sandy, and she once made an adorable Breakfast Club-inspired dancing video with friends.

The tweet that started it all came from @AnonymousQ1776. Now deleted, it read:

Here is America’s favorite commie know-it-all acting like the clueless nitwit she is… …High School video of “Sandy” Ocasio-Cortez

Then contained this video:

This attempt at shaming AOC (as she’s commonly referred to on Twitter) backfired spectacularly. It went viral for being charming, and Republicans became a punchline instead.

Twitter users even began making new vids so AOC could get down to other jams. There’s already an AOC Dances To Every Song account!

Eventually, the vid even got to the actress who inspired it: Ally Sheedy.

Then AOC officially joined The Breakfast Club.

As for AnonymousQ, the user who started it all, they got some celeb spotlight too.
