By Fox News. Ava Martinez, the 8 year-old who impersonates Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., released another video on Tuesday in which she mocks the freshman congresswoman’s knowledge of socialism.
“Hello, like, I’m AOC, because I can’t spell Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. So, it turns out socialism is not short for social media,” Martinez said, while wearing lipstick and glasses similar to the real Ocasio-Cortez.
“I should have known it wasn’t short for social media because the only other socialist is a 93-year-old man from Vermont,” she said, referring to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. “There’s no way Bernie’s Instagram is lit.”

The video accompanied a tweet listing a series of fake slogans that seemed to take shots at Ocasio-Cortez’s inexperience and her climate change warnings.
“AOC in 2023!” one slogan read, apparently implying that Ocasio-Cortez wouldn’t know when the next midterm election would occur. (Read more from “Mini-AOC Releases ‘Re-Election Video’ Mocking the New York Congresswoman” HERE)
GOP Leader, Ocasio-Cortez Give Boost to Lawmaker Pay Hike
By The Hill. Lawmakers say that any effort to give members of Congress a raise won’t pass unless both parties agree not to use the issue as a campaign weapon.
While no such agreement has been ironed out, there is a chance that there will be a bipartisan deal struck at some point this year.
Proponents of the pay hike acknowledge it’s not popular but argue that it is long overdue.
The effort got a significant boost Tuesday when House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) offered support for a pay bump, saying he doesn’t want Congress to be a place where only the wealthy can afford to serve.
Freshman progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), meanwhile, forcefully made a case to her nearly 4.5 million Twitter followers, defending giving members of Congress the cost-of-living adjustment. (Read more from “GOP Leader, Ocasio-Cortez Give Boost to Lawmaker Pay Hike” HERE)
