    The Democratic freshman congresswomen has built a five-million strong following on Twitter that she uses to slam Donald Trump, the Republicans, and their policies. However, she recently demonstrated her softer side, sharing a video with a new friend from an aquarium.

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has melted the hearts of her followers by sharing a video from an aquarium with the caption “A new day, a new friend”. In the clip, the 29-year-old politician, who is in her element in the political shark tank in Washington, is seen enjoying herself as she plays with a penguin. For 20 seconds, she runs back and forth in front of the tank, popping up and down, while her new friend chases after the congresswoman.

    ​The clip, which has been viewed over 4 million times, has received more than 250k likes and thousands of retweets. This also triggered a storm in the comments.

    ​Batman references followed – however, AOC was given the role of a DC villain.

    ​Others used it as an opportunity to tear into the Democrat and her agenda.

    ​But not everyone seemed to cheer, as one commenter noted that the animal belongs to Mother Nature.
