An eight-year-old girl who impersonates Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is back at her usual teasing of the congresswoman in a new post which features what happens when her playground park is closed.
Mimicking Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s southern border photo shoot, which some people contend was an empty parking lot, Mini AOC said she wants people to see how sad she feels about not being able to enter the park.
Here’s the original:
Before @AOC hit the national stage & was just a fairly unknown House candidate frm NYC,she took time awy frm her campaign & came dwn to #Tornillo to protest the #tentcity housing migrant children.I made these previously unpublished fotos a yr ago today. #elpaso #aoc #onassignment pic.twitter.com/SWyyI1XVt9

And the parody:

Mini AOC quickly made a name for herself in conservative social circles as her joking impersonations of the actual Ocasio-Cortez went viral. The parody account struck success shortly after Ocasio-Cortez took office in 2019, after winning her 2018 congressional bid.
Ava Martinez of California started posting videos to social media earlier this month as the character Mini AOC. Her jokes and teasing at Ocasio-Cortez’s expense typically riff on climate change and socialism while using an exaggerated ditzy voice to deliver the one-liners. Adorned in stylish glasses and deep red lipstick mimicking that of the congresswoman, the child purposefully overuses the word “like” and “so” on her Twitter account, which has attracted more than 36,000 followers despite being created fewer than two weeks ago.
“I’m going to talk about like the three branches of the U.S. government: The Niña, the Pinta and the Santa Maria,” Martinez jokes in one impersonation while holding up four fingers. In another video, Mini AOC calls on people in Washington “to watch the most important documentary on climate change. It’s called Ice Age 2: The Meltdown.
“That’s not me saying it, it’s science. The Green New Deal will cost like $93 trillion—do you know how much that is? Me neither. Because it’s totally worth it, if sea levels keep rising we won’t be able to drive to Hawaii anymore,” she continued.
Many people responded to the tweet supportive of the young parody:
