Ocasio-Cortez Puts On Strange Accent While Addressing Black Audience: WATCH

WARNING: Video makes for very uncomfortable viewing

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put on a bizarre accent while addressing a predominantly-black audience when she recently spoke at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.

Video footage from the event - which makes for extremely uncomfortable viewing - shows Ocasio-Cortez drop her usual "Sandy from the Bronx" twang for a strange new accent.

The unusual accent has never been heard from the congresswomen before, who has previously been accused of exaggerating her Bronx upbringing to make herself more appealing to her voting demographic.

The odd change in AOC's accent was noted by the Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra, who posted a clip of her speech on Twitter.

According to Western Journal, Ocasio-Cortez, while clapping in time with almost every word, said, “This is what organizing looks like.

"This is what building power looks like.

"This is what changing the country looks like.

"It’s when we choose to show up and occupy the room and talk about the things that matter most, talking about our future.”

“I’m proud to be a bartender. Ain’t nothing wrong with that,” the congresswoman continued, likely in reference to President Donald Trump’s having pointed out her prior employment history in a recent speech while mocking her absurd Green New Deal proposal.

She then, somewhat condescendingly, ran through a litany of menial jobs and assured the audience that there was “nothing wrong” if that was their particular station in life.

In light of the accent Ocasio-Cortez had used, Saavedra was reminded of how failed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is known for doing much the same thing with her voice, particularly when speaking with predominately black crowds in southern states.

The reporter posted a well-known video from years ago of Clinton speaking at a black church during her failed 2008 bid for the presidency, in which she adopted a thick southern drawl and preacher’s cadence as she boomed from behind the podium on stage.

“I don’t feel no ways tarred,” Clinton drawled.

“I’ve come too far, from where I’ve started from. Nobody told me that the road would be easy.

“I don’t believe He brought me this far to leave me,” she added, quoting an old gospel song.

Regardless of whatever fake accent Ocasio-Cortez may have been striving for, and setting aside her condescending bigotry of low expectations for the predominately black crowd when it came to job satisfaction, the whole thing just came across as incredibly fake, and one has to wonder if Ocasio-Cortez thought nobody would notice.
