Days after Ocasio-Cortez — whose dancing in a video from her college days recently went viral — stuck up for Cardi B in her feud with conservative commentator Tomi Lahren, presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris is letting loose to the Trump-criticizing rapper.
A new video shared by the California senator’s communications director shows Harris taking a break from speech prep to dance it out to Cardi B’s “I Like It.”
“I like texts from my exes when they want a second chance (What?) / I like proving n****s wrong, I do what they say I can’t,” the rapper spits in the song, prompting a seated Harris to fling her hands along to the beat. (The “n****s” reference is censored.)

The song is off Cardi B’s album Invasion of Privacy, which is fitting given that the Wi-Fi password for Harris’s office is partially revealed on the whiteboard in the background.
Great video!! Please also change your passwords there, remember what happened to the DNC the last time.

Not everyone’s charmed. One critic called the video “totally staged,” while another accused Harris of copying Ocasio-Cortez. And some voters said they need more than a boogie to blow them away by Election Day.
… but letting people sniff their traffic was totally worth it to try to capitalize on @AOC’s fame

Will I support Kamala Harris
-Does not support the Green New Deal
-Meets Wall St & AIPAC
-Didn't prosecute Steve Mnuchin & took his $
-Still takes corporate/lobbyist $ so NOT a progressive
-Ruined people's lives as a prosecutor
What a tough choice

Word to Donald Trump: There’s still plenty of time to break it down to “Bodak Yellow.”
