AOC’s debut Twitch stream is one of the biggest everRepresentative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reacts to being chosen to be an impostor during her first live-streamed round of Among Us, moments after saying she hoped not to be picked as an impostor.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) made her Twitch debut tonight to play Among Us and encourage viewers to vote. She also, very quickly, became one of the platform’s biggest broadcasters: her stream peaked at 435,000 viewers around the time of her first match, according to Twitch. (The stream is still going as of this writing, but it had dipped to around 350,000 viewers after about two hours of playing.)

That peak viewership puts her broadcast among the 20 biggest streams ever, according to the third-party metrics site TwitchTracker, and much higher if you’re only looking at broadcasts from individual streamers.

AOC Wants To Create Blacklist

In 2019, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez complained that she and leftist allies were being placed on a blacklist by Democratic Party regulars. Now, according to the Washington Examiner, she wants to be the one making the list. Earlier this week AOC asked if anyone was keeping a list of Trump "sycophants" for future use. Ocasio-Cortez has apparently changed her position on lists since she is not the target.

AOC Delusional?

The Democrats won back the White House. But, you wouldn't know that by the way Democratic leaders are acting. Leaders in the party are sniping and taking shots at each other over their humiliating losses in House and Senate. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed party leaders in the NY Times for relying on "magical thinking" rather than changing power dynamics. “Every single [member] that rejected my help is losing and now they’re blaming us for the loss.” Politico's John F.
