WATCH: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Blasts ‘Weak Memes’ on Showtime’s Desus & Mero
The Boogie Down Bronx was in effect Thursday night as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) appeared as a guest on Showtime’s new late night talk show Desus & Mero, which premiered this week, with hosts Desus Nice and The Kid Mero, aka The Bodega Boys.
AOC provided her hosts the sort of pop cultural and political insight that has made her an immediate lightning rod for progressive adulation, conservative mockery, and Mediaite posts, as well as the subject of the sort of Internet memes that often fall short of their intended goal.
The latter was the topic in this clip above, as hosts asked AOC to opine on “weak memes” of which she is often the intended butt of the joke. Nice asked his guest if she ever looks at her timeline and says “man these memes are weak.”
“So weak!” Ocascio-Cortez explained before giving out her own diss.
“How you have a computer that runs both Windows 95 and Twitter at the same time?” she claimed, to hosts that appeared to laugh a little to hard an her insight that was more amusing than funny.
