While Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was busy getting sworn into the 116th Congress (opens in new tab) on January 3—becoming the youngest woman in U.S. history to serve in Congress at 29—the internet could not stop talking about a video of her that surfaced during her time at Boston College (opens in new tab) gloriously dancing on the roof of a building.

Yes, the government has been partially shut down for 13 days (opens in new tab), there is still no clean water in Flint (opens in new tab), and Donald Trump is still president (opens in new tab), but here we are! Analyzing a video of AOC looking incredibly happy! It was distributed by now-deleted Twitter account @AnonymousQ1776 in a weird attempt to humiliate her, but the only one here who's humiliated is me—wishing I could dance as well as Ocasio-Cortez.

Per usual, the internet decided to share its thoughts on Twitter about the viral 30-second clip, defending Ocasio-Cortez and her Breakfast Club-style dance movies. Enjoy the best, below.
