Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
When critics slammed a freshman congresswoman over an old video of her dancing, little did they know it would make her a viral sensation.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded perfectly by posting another video of her doing a jig outside her congressional office. The next thing you know, the lawmaker's dance is a thing.
The next generation of lawyers get it. It's not just a dance; it's the law in motion.
Ocasio-Cortez, 29, raised eyebrows when she unseated a long-time politician in her run for the U.S. House of Representatives. She is one of those new-blood lawmakers who are not afraid of the moment.
Her fans apparently include a law student who broke out in dance at an airport. It may not get Katie Gould elected or a spot on law review, but 358,000 likes on Twitter is definitely something.
Writer Joe Patrice, who is usually a law critic, liked it. He called it a metaphor for "the human subject in late-stage capitalism," or "just goofing around in the airport."
Lawyers are not usually known for their dance skills, unless that includes dancing on the head of a pin. But these viral, statement dances are a good thing.
The dancing law student was saying something like, "Airport entertainment is hard to find." You can't argue with that.
Ocasio-Cortez was saying something like, "It's time for a change in government." It's hard to argue with that, too.
