I love political campaign documentaries and obviously we all love AOC but even so I didn't expect how much I was gonna cry at this. It's good.

At the end, her reaction when she looks into the window of the bar where her party is watching results.

I watched this right when it came out and I LOVED it. Couldn't stop happy crying at the end. I feel like it should be required watching for all US government classes.

I'm late to this party but I finally watched this and it's official: if AOC even so much as looks like she might either shriek from happiness or tear up, I will absolutely just start bawling.

What a world full of amazing women we live in.
