Your average congresswoman probably isn’t rapping Cardi B. lyrics but that’s still not stopping Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made history when she won Democratic primary victory for New York’s 14th Congressional District this year as the youngest woman to do so. The 29-year-old is already shaking things up!

Alexandria took to Twitter and shared some tweets that included Cardi B. lyrics from her song “Best Life,” featuring Chance the Rapper, off her debut album, “Invasion Of Privacy.”

While one can argue that the lyrics she quoted didn’t have profanity and it actually spread a positive message, some people disagree and feel it is “un-congresswoman like” to speak in “that” manner. An online critic told her that she has a “civic duty” to write intelligibly.

Check out her tweet:
