Another weekend, another video of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez talking about things the world would be better off not knowing.
The socialist congresswoman talked about going to the nail salon — a common hangout for the proletariat — and being offended by the observations of a worker.
“Don’t you love when you go to, like, the nail salon or you go wherever and people trying pointing out all your insecurities,” she said.
“So I just went to the nail salon. Okay?” she continued, holding her hand up to the camera, “Just so I can feel human. Nothing special. Just trying to get some paint, cut my cuticles, whatever.
“And I’m sitting there and painting my nails and— or my nails are getting painted and the woman’s like, ‘Your eyebrows are to big for your face.’ I’m sitting there and I’m like,” she said with a skeptical look on her face.
“And she’s like, ‘mustache?’
“And I’m like,” she continued, looking aghast.
“I’m like, ‘First of all, I thought I came here to feel good about myself. Second of all, what if I like my mustache?”
“This DC apartment is bougie and has things I’ve never seen before,” the text reads on her Instagram video last week, referring to her second home.
“Like what is a garbage disposal really for? Is it better or worse than throwing something in the garbage?” she wondered. “More importantly, why is it so loud and yelling at me?”
In the video, Ocasio-Cortez seems genuinely astonished by the technology that hit the market in 1940.
“I am told this is a garbage disposal,” she said skeptically. “I’ve never seen a garbage disposal, I never had one in any place I’ve ever lived,” the former restaurant worker said.
“It is terrifying. I don’t know what to use it for, or what its purpose is,” the national elected leader confessed.
“Like, food scraps? Is this environmentally sound? I don’t know,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
The week before, she was wowed by plants growing from dirt.
“Oh my God, you guys! I just checked on my community garden slot and I was so nervous because I was in New York for two weeks in recess and look!” she said as she turned the camera towards the ground.
“Oh my God! Look at this!” she exclaimed as the tiny plants were appearing.
“Like, look at the collard greens! They’re huge! Look at the dahlias! Oh my God, I’m going to have to trim all of these back for smoothies!” she said with a gasp.
“I am — Shook! Like, honestly, gardening, food that comes out of dirt. Like, it’s magic!” she said, bewildered.
But the socialist’s time away at work proved fateful for the tomatoes.
“RIP tomato,” the text read on the screen as Ocasio-Cortez revealed the plant had shriveled up to a brown crisp.
“Let’s pour one out for the tomato,” she said, pretending to pour an empty wine bottle on the deceased plant.
Undeterred, she exclaimed, “This is so exciting!”
“I really thought they’d be in a sad state, which is contributing to my excitement,” the text read on the screen.
