Every now and again during my Internet travels I come across a video that is absolutely hilarious.
Eight year old actress Ava Martinez is the star of one such video. This little girl managed to go viral a few days ago when she appeared in a video shared to Twitter. Sporting red lipstick and glasses reminiscent of Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ava proceeded to skewer the congresswoman in the most hilarious way possible.
This sweet, adorable, 8yo actress is not only much cuter than the real #AlexandriaOcasioCortez but she’s also already much smarter too. I asked her to do this video because when #AOC is talking this is what we’re all thinking. We’re better off with this sweetheart in Congress. pic.twitter.com/QybovhN8WZ

The video had been uploaded by her stepfather, Salvatore Schachter. Schachter says he has been inundated with messages from people telling him his stepdaughter is the spitting image of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
I’ll agree that Ava really does look like a much younger AOC. She also has AOC’s mannerisms down pat. The big difference, though, is Ava is much more intelligent than AOC, and that definitely comes through during her performance.
Can we just swap out Ava for AOC? It’s not like anyone will notice.
