Wow, is news so lame I’m writing about a woman doing an AOC impression? Yes. I am not proud. I’m also not sorry. Who should be proud is this woman, actress and comedian Alyssa Limperis, whose impression of socialist barbie Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is dead on. Welcome to Friday, babies.

The glasses. The bun. The voice. The hand gestures. I need Alyssa to just do some live streams on Instagram while she’s building furniture and drinking wine next, and we’re good to go here. Compare Alyssa’s impression to the real thing: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Doesn’t Understand Grocery Store Bag Options.
Nice touch on plugging her youngness in Congress, too.
It was only a matter of time before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was parodied so accurately. We have fun mocking her on the show in our segment “Deep thoughts with AOC” but Alyssa studied the woman. She embodied her smugness, her self-importance, her sense of lipstick.
