Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might be better than you at League of Legends

Democratic presidential candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) holds hands with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

If you’ve been playing bronze-ranked League of Legends recently and found yourself with a particularly bold ADC/support bot lane player who likes to make aggressive pushes but has no problem spreading the wealth—you may have unknowingly been playing alongside a sitting member of Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

That’s right, gentlemen. Not only do girl gamers exist, but they’re Silver IV ranked while elected to Congress, which, statistically, makes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez better at the game than most of the people reading this and the person writing this. The Congresswoman is also definitely better than Rick Fox.

We still don’t know what AOC’s Gamertag is—and honestly, if we knew, we don’t know if we’d want to share—but we do have some clues from AOC’s Twitter account as to how she plays the game:

Surprise, surprise. Looks like the self-described Democratic Socialist and one of Bernie Sanders’s biggest supporters in Congress likes to play bot lane support characters who redistribute attack damage with large AOE abilities.

Which begs the question, what champion would Bernie play?

While we have a few guesses (Teemo), we’re more certain that if Bernie played Overwatch, he’d be a Bastion main.
