If your IG feed has been flooded with AOC lately, it’s because Vanity Fair chose none other than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to star in its recently launched November issue, the last issue to hit the newsstands in the United States before the heavily contested presidential elections that take place tomorrow.
In the interview with VF, AOC spoke about her struggles from her first jobs out of college, to her feminism, to the current state of the election in which two old white men race to become the next U.S. President.
“It’s not an accident that every cycle, the boogeyman of the Democrats is a woman,” Ocasio-Cortez told Vanity Fair. “A couple of cycles ago, it was Pelosi. Then it was Hillary, and now it’s me.”
The millennial Boricua has inspired a wave of young people through social media to become politically active and exercise their right to vote.
And just like almost everything that involves the 31-year-old Congresswoman, her appearance in the publication has been giving her most enthusiastic critics a lot to talk about.
Ocasio-Cortez posed for Vanity Fair’s photographers wearing very expensive luxury clothes and accessories from head to toe. Some say that these figures do not match AOC’s causes and beliefs, who has become a darling of the American left with her defense of the less fortunate.
However, she had the best way to clap back:
Republicans are Very Mad (again) about my appearance. This time they’re mad that I look good in borrowed clothes (again).
Listen, if Republicans want pointers on looking your best, I’m happy to share.
Tip #1: Drink water and don’t be racist
