We knew the 116th Congress would be different but we didn’t expect the viral video of the day to be about a young Congresswoman’s dance moves.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the 29-young old from the Bronx who has the inspiring story of making it from bartender to lawmaker.
But that has made her a target of scorn for some conservative and far-right groups.
They have been relentlessly mocking her, and even released a video of her dancing as a college student on a rooftop in 2010.
But in a delightful riposte, Ocasio-Cortez has now posted a new video - of herself dancing outside her new Congressional office.
And there we have it. In two short videos, a glimpse of the refreshing change sweeping through the ossified corridors of power in Washington.
