“De-influencer” Satires Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Near Death Experience During Capitol Riot

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has faced a backlash from naysayers and Republicans over the passionate recounting of her experience during the January 6th, 2021 insurrection and breach at the U.S. Capitol building, but this week, a Twitter troll took it to the next level in the form of political satire of her trending Instagram video.  The video was created by YouTuber “de-influencer” “WhatsHerFace.

“Hey everyone, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez here. I felt it necessary to talk about myself and how brave I was at the Captiol on that historic day. First, I need to just make clear how scared I was. I was LITERALLY fearing for my life,” she said. “There was a banging at the door, I was SO scared. Like, who knocks like that? Seriously?! Anyways, being a strong, independent woman, I bravely ran to hide in the office of my political opponent Katie Porter. She isn’t as popular as me so I knew no one would care to go there. If it wasn’t obvious already I’m as smart as I am beautiful. It turned out the knocking was only a Capitol Hill officer, but guys, it was really weird, he was angry and mean to me. I was SO scared… and brave.”
