People, naturally, were perplexed as to why a video of Ocasio-Cortez dancing to that one Phoenix song that everyone knows and still (shamefully) loves could be construed as anything but her being a fairly typical millennial.

I can't imagine being someone who gives two shits that this exists. This need on the right to make her look bad is simply pathetic.
