So you have a few four-year-old videos of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lying around and it’s a Saturday and you need to cook up some traffic. What do you do? Thaw, chop, reheat, and repurpose them into 10 bite-sized stories, obviously.

At least that’s how the New York Post spent its Saturday, pulling clips from a batch of old Facebook Live videos to drum up content, and controversy, about the New York City congresswoman it loves to hate. The posts ranged from legitimately newsworthy bits, like AOC criticizing Hillary Clinton, to bafflingly asinine ones, like her singing along to Bon Jovi’s “Living on a Prayer” during a road trip. Of course, the internet noticed.

Ocasio-Cortez noticed, too. In response to a story about her choice of a designer dress on a recent taping of The View, the congresswoman clapped back. “The Post is just mad that you can look good fighting for working families,” she tweeted.

And those half-baked Post stories make for tasty leftovers the next day, too!
