Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s takedown of the way US politicians are elected is brutal and brilliant
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just took aim at the way politicians are elected in the US and it went viral because it’s just brutal and so beautifully done.
The Democrat congresswoman was giving evidence to a panel of government watchdogs and it really is worth watching in full.
‘Let’s play a game,’ she says, before dissecting US campaign finance laws to make her point about the ‘fundamentally broken’ political system.

It’s been retweeted over and over again and here are just a few of the things people are saying about it.
This is absolutely fantastic.
What started as a juvenile 'let's play a game' scenario turned into an absolute obliteration of the US political system.
