Is There *Anything* More Embarrassing Than This Video Of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Dancing?

LOL, yes: the blatant hypocrisy of the GOP

On Wednesday, Twitter user @AnonymousQ1776 uploaded a video of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in "high school," whom they describe as "America's favorite commie know-it-all," saying that it shows her "acting like the clueless nitwit she is." When you press play, it's... literally just a video of AOC dancing with her friends. So, having fun is "communist" now? Interesting.

Twitter user @BijanStephen noted that the video is actually footage of Ocasio-Cortez in college and that @AnonymousQ1776 had changed the music from the original video, which was originally set to a Phoenix track. But if we've learned anything about conservatives, it's that they don't care about facts and think anyone having fun at any time is an embarrassing and career-ruining misstep.

To us, there are only a few things more embarrassing than this video. Like, this photo of Mitch McConnell posing in front of a Confederate flag. It's really embarrassing to be a racist and align yourself with the social and moral values of slavers. Super gauche, if you ask us.

And then there's Donald Trump publicly sucking up to Putin. We mean... cringe!

And then there's Melania Trump's multiple tone-deaf outfits. So much worse than dancing to Phoenix!

Or, maybe Republicans might be able to see that this was a cute video if they had ever experienced the feeling of joy. Maybe if they weren't so busy stripping the rights of every minority group and blindly following a criminal president, they could find some time to smile, too. Or maybe not. Maybe they're totally hopeless lost causes who should be voted out of office and never have any say over anything ever again. Maybe!

Delevingne shared why they chose now

Last week, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson officially confirmed the rumor that they're dating, with Delevingne posting an Instagram video of the two of them kissing. Now, in a new interview, she revealed why they confirmed the rumors. Basically, it was in celebration of Pride.

In the interview with E! News at the TrevorLIVE Gala, Delevingne was asked why the pair chose this moment to take their relationship public, and she answered: "Because it is Pride, it's been 50 years since Stonewall happened, and I don't know... It's been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?"

Why not, indeed? Delevingne also said that the kissing video was "just a little something," which makes sense. After all, the couple were recently spotted lugging around a kinky sex bench, so some simple kissing must feel pretty elementary.

At the Gala, Delevingne shouted out Benson during her speech too, though not by name. "I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are," she said. "She's one of the people who help me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought." I'm swooning.

"I don't regret it at all. I mean I'm a man, and as a man, you do real things."

In 2017, Atlanta-based artist iLoveMakonnen (or just Makonnen) had already experienced exhilarating career highs and disappointing lows. Drake had hopped on a remix of his viral hit "Tuesday," and then signed him to his OVO Sound label in 2014. Hits like "I Don't Sell Molly No More" and "Look at Wrist" on his first album, I Love Makonnen, put him on track to be the next best thing in rap. Makonnen was part of a class of rappers and producers who were expanding the trap genre to broader audiences. But problems with OVO led to a delay in a follow-up album, and so he parted ways with the label and, later, announced a short-lived retirement from music. Then in January 2017, Makonnen tweeted that he was gay.
