Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Surprises Fans With 'Animal Crossing' Island Visits
Her avatar wears a hand-drawn AOC shirt.
On May 7, the politician tweeted that she was “very new” to the game and was looking to “visit random people’s islands and leave a doodle or note on their bulletin board.” Ocasio-Cortez then opened her DMs for four minutes, allowing her fans to submit their Dodo codes for a surprise “house” call. AOC subsequently shared a photo of her first island visit, revealing her avatar dressed in a hand-drawn campaign shirt.
Unsurprisingly, detractors were quick to criticize Ocasio-Cortez for her virtual initiative. “Are you kidding me? We’re paying you to play Animal Crossing? OMG,” former Republican Congressional candidate DeAnna Lorraine tweeted. In response, AOC cleverly pointed out: ”Curious for your thoughts on Trump’s golf bills.”
