Written by Maga First News on March 16, 2019
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to social media Friday to show her followers how she dealt with what she deemed a “boring” hearing.
The New York Democrat posted a video on Instagram showing she and Rep. Jimmy Gomez, D-Calif., doing push-ups during a recess the day before.
“I admit, sometimes hearings get a little boring,” she wrote in her post. “We had a recess and I needed to get my head back in the game, so Rep. @jimmygomezca and I did some pushups to get the blood pumping.”
Ocasio-Cortez, wearing heels and a suit, can be seen going push-up for push-up with Gomez until the pair completed five repetitions.
Someone can be heard saying, “Alright, back to work” as Ocasio-Cortez stands up.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., is also seen in the video cheering Ocasio-Cortez on.
“Don’t judge me, I def fell off the workout wagon and am trying to get back on again.” she added to her post.
It was not clear what specific hearing Ocasio-Cortez was taking an exercise break from.
