Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says She Would Fill A 'RuPaul Drag Race' Bracket Like Obama Does With NCAA Basketball

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the newly-elected representative from New York waiting to start her first term, channeled her inner Barack Obama on Friday night. Ocasio-Cortez said she would fill out a bracket for RuPaul's Drag Race, which is set to enters its 11th season while the All-Stars kicked off Friday.

In a quick-thumbed tweet sent Friday night, Ocasio-Cortez sent a message to state her case:

"If Obama released NCAA tournament predictions, does that mean I can do the same for RPDR #AllStars4?:

Called 'the most radical show on TV" by the New York Times, RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars 4 returned to the air waves Friday night on VH1 in advance to an anticipated 11th season beginning in January.

Ocasio-Cortez said if the 44th President of the United States could pick NCAA basketball teams to kickstart March Madness, then she should have the right to pick a bracket for the Queen of '19.

Obama took his oath as President in January of 2009, and two months later he made his NCAA bracket public. It became such an annual event during his two four-year terms that TV stations began broadcasting the Commander-in-Chief's picks to the public.

And even though Obama has been out of office, he still publicly makes picks — like last spring when he picked Michigan State to beat Virginia in the men's final. Well, he got one state right. Actually, Villanova beat Michigan, 79-62, for the title. Virginia? They became the first No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 seed since the tournament expanded to 64 teams.

As for Ocasio-Cortez, she's trying to make her mark in not only her on district and Washington, D.C., she's coyly using social media to persuade any naysayers she might be a future candidate for president, which many have already called for.

She might not be picking basketball games, but the far-left Democrat could gain a stronghold with an affinity towards RuPaul's following.
