On October 20, 2020, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez changed the course of history by streaming Among Us on Twitch along with Ilhan Omar. The game was watched by over 400,000 people. Now that’s an impeccable way to draw young voters in if I’ve ever seen it. If you missed it, just watch the whole thing. It’s worth it. But if you just don’t have the time, allow me to break down the most wholesome moments from the stream.
AOC Reminds People to Share Their Voting Plans
At the beginning of the stream, AOC reminded us why we were all there. To get our voting plans done and get our ballots in. She explained the importance of making a voting plan, which makes us much more likely to actually go and vote. Again, the genius of launching a campaign for iwillvote.com over stream is genius.
AOC is an impostor on the first round, kills someone, and then accidentally reports herself.
I just loved this energy — this is 100% something I’d do and it was so relatable and quirky, which is truly the theme of this entire stream.
Ilhan Omar refuses to vote for AOC even though she’s definitely the impostor.
AOC then went on to say “that’s my ride or die right there” which is, once again, just a wholesome moment. I love these two.
Can you tell I’m loving this stream yet?
AOC has a discussion about the UK Healthcare system
She was a bit bamboozled that under the NHS in the UK —which we already know is fantastic — you can legitimately go to the doctor and get a prescription without any sort of credit card or cash on you. Me too, AOC. Me too.
While there were tons of fun moments to love during AOC’s Twitch stream, you’ve really got to watch it all to experience the full breadth of it. Among all of the chaos of this election, this is the content we all need.
