CRINGE VIDEO: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Pulls a Hillary Clinton and Fakes a Southern Drawl During Speech

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took a page from Hillary Clinton on Friday and spoke with a heavy and contrived southern drawl while speaking at the National Action Network’s annual convention.

Ocasio-Cortez asserted, “I’m proud to be a bartender. Ain’t nothing wrong that. There’s nothing wrong with working retail…There is nothing wrong with preparing that your neighbors will eat,” while adopting the unnatural accent.

The freshman representative went on to say that “there is nothing wrong with being a working person in the United States of America.”

Though Ocasio-Cortez was speaking in New York City, the scene was eerily reminiscent of Clinton’s tendency to adopt a southern drawl when speaking in the south. The former First Lady was mocked online as “Kentucky Fried Hillary” after a performance of the phony accent during her campaign in 2007.
