From The Washington Post:
A temple in Queens got a small dose of surprise on Sunday — the final night of Hanukkah — when Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat with a knack for dramatic flourish, told those gathered to light the menorah that her ancestors were Jewish.
“One of the things that we discovered about ourselves is that a very, very long time ago, generations and generations ago, my family consisted of Sephardic Jews,” Ocasio-Cortez said. These are Jews who settled in the Middle East, North Africa and southern Europe after the Jewish diaspora. They were expelled from Spain in 1492.
Call us cynical but we can’t help but wonder if she’s taking a page out of Elizabeth Warren’s book.

AOC waiting until Hanukkah to reveal her Jewish ancestry is oddly similar to Hillary Clinton waiting until she's on a Hip Hop radio station to profess her love for hot sauce.

Don’t give her any ideas, man.
She’s learned quickly to Morph into the likeness of whoever she speaks to

She’s a politician through and through.
She’s learning from Warren!

She’s probably less than 1/18,000th Jewish.

But is she 1/1024 Native American? THAT’S the real question.
