So, if you haven't heard, Republicans found a new reason to disparage Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the young Democratic Socialist congresswoman representing New York's 14th congressional district.
Videos surfaced of Ocasio-Cortez dancing on a rooftop in Boston, the city of her alma mater, Boston University.
However, they neglected to mention one major part of the dance featured in the video.

Does the dancing look familiar?
That's because it's a reimagining of the iconic scene from The Breakfast Club where the kids dance all over the library.
Here's the original version from the 1985 John Hughes film that made stars of Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Emilio Estevez and Hughes' muse, Molly Ringwald.

So not only was the video completely non-offensive, but according to Uproxx, it was actually created FOR Boston University.
"As it turns out, the video was actually created for Boston University's Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground, which provides 'programs, events and experiences to students designed to encourage creative exchange of ideas, thoughts, beliefs and opinions.'"

It wasn't long before some stars of The Breakfast Club caught on to Ocasio-Cortez's video.
Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy both tweeted their support for the Congresswoman's sweet moves.

It seems like this attempt on AOC's credibility only made her more popular among both Gen X and Millennials. Sorry, for those of you trying to bring her down.
