Let it be known: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has now officially endorsed Bernie Sanders and Sasha Velour.
The NY Democrat is a known fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race, so it’s not entirely surprising that she stepped out to see season 9 winner Sasha Velour’s one-queen show, Smoke & Mirrors, in Washinton, D.C this week.
What was slightly surprising, though, was AOC channeling Lady Gaga in her review, delivered post-show when she visited Velour backstage.

“It was amazing. It was incredible. It was fabulous. I’m like that Lady Gaga moment where she’s like, ‘stunning, amazing, impeccable, genius,’” exclaims AOC.
“Do you believe?” responds Velour. “From the revolutionary of our time. I love you so much. Thank you.”
Ocasio-Cortez was referencing this clip, though she left out the ‘vomit on it’ part — good call:
Velour calls her show an “an effortless blend of drag, visual art, and magic… sparking fresh analysis of gender, fame, family, and the importance of dreaming big and living life over-the-top.”
