Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, nicknamed AOC, posted a video of herself on her Instagram stories speaking about dental care access. Cardi B’s number one hit “Bodak Yellow” was playing in the background of the clip.

Cardi posted the video to her Twitter with the caption, “She better run for president when she turns 35.” AOC later replied to Cardi’s tweet with “Women Against Patriarchy (WAP) 2020,” a play off of Cardi’s smash duet with Megan The Stallion, “WAP,” which actually stands for “wet a** p****.”

The congresswoman took to her Instagram stories on Aug. 14 to share how important it is that everyone has fair access to health and dental care.

“I had to GET ELECTED TO CONGRESS for me to afford dental treatment,” AOC posted. “This is my first time having health insurance in years, and even THEN it didn’t really cover the cost of this — but it did cover other doc appts so I could more easily save.”

She added a line from “Bodak Yellow” – “In other words, ‘I got a bag and fixed my teeth.’ EXCEPT YOU SHOULDN’T NEED A BAG TO FIX YOUR TEETH, GET INSULIN, GET HEALTHCARE.”

Should Ocasio-Cortez decide to make a run for the White House in 2024, she will become eligible after turning age 35 that year. She turns 31 on Oct. 13.

Both AOC and Cardi B endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination in the 2020 Presidential election, according to Fox News. Joe Biden ultimately got the nod.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was elected to Congress in 2018. She will be featured as a speaker at the forthcoming Democratic National Convention, along with former President Barack Obama and vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, as reported by theGrio.
