WATCH: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is Hilariously Blown Away by Her Garbage Disposal


United States Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become one of the biggest stars in the Democratic Part, but the New York Congresswoman is still trying to familiarize herself with her new life in Washington, D.C. In her latest personal video on social media, Ocasio-Cortez shared her hilarious first interaction with a garbage disposal.

“OK everyone I need your help because I just moved into this apartment a few months ago and I just flipped a switch and it made that noise and it scared the daylights out of me,” the 29-year-old said.

“I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal. I never had one in any place I’ve ever lived.”

The videos appeared on the freshman Congresswoman’s Instagram story.

“This DC apartment is bougie and has things I’ve never seen before,” she joked. “Is this what social mobility is? Using kitchen appliances you never saw growing up?”

Never change, AOC.

This is just the latest reminder that Ocasio-Cortez is the most relatable Congresswoman we have had in ages.

Who is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

A year ago I was waitressing in a restaurant while organizing my community. In a time and place where we had been burned by so many politicians, and had grown deservedly cynical of the sad, familiar cycle of campaign promises and governance excuses, I was asking them, just once, to believe. . It was really hard, because how do you make that case? How to ask someone whose trust has been violated over and over to believe you? To believe in the movement for justice and economic dignity? . You show up. You give unconditionally. You show up when no one is looking and the cameras are off. You offer support when it’s risky, but necessary. You do it over and over again, without a need for recognition or expectation that you are “owed” something for doing the right thing. You just… engage in the act of loving your community. . Never in my wildest dreams did I think that those late nights on the 6 & 7 trains would lead to this. All this attention gives me a lot of anxiety (my staff fought to get me to agree to this cover, as I was arguing against it), and still doesn’t feel quite real, which maybe is why I remain comfortable taking risks, which maybe is a good thing. . I believe in an America where all things are possible. Where a basic, dignified life isn’t a dream, but a norm. . That’s why I got up then, and it’s why I get up now. Because my story shouldn’t be a rare one. Because our collective potential as a nation can be unlocked when we’re not so consumed with worry about how we’re going to secure our most basic needs, like a doctor’s visit or an affordable place to live.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a rising star in the Democratic party and in the New York primaries on Tuesday, June 26, Ocasio-Cortez pulled off a stunner. It has been dubbed as the biggest upset of the primary season as the 28-year-old Democratic Socialist defeated 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley, who was the fourth-highest ranking Democrat in Congress.

It was the first time that a Democratic candidate challenged Crowley in New York’s 14th congressional district in 14 years.

“This is not an end, this is the beginning. This is the beginning because the message that we sent the world tonight is that it’s not OK to put donors before your community,” Ocasio-Cortez said as the votes came pouring in, via CNN.com.

“You have given this country hope, you have given this country proof that when you knock on your neighbor’s door, when you come to them with love, when you let them know that no matter your stance, you are there for them — that we can make change.”
