Chrissy Teigen invites Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to watch Grammys with her and social media loves it that she said yes
Teigen asked Ocasio-Cortez if she wanted to join her and Jesse Tyler Ferguson of Modern Family fame to watch the 61st awards ceremony
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has accepted an invitation to watch the Grammy Awards with Chrissy Teigen after the model reached out to her. Teigen asked Ocasio-Cortez, who represents New York's 14th congressional district if she wanted to join her and Jesse Tyler Ferguson of 'Modern Family' fame to watch the 61st awards ceremony.
Teigen tweeted: "Hello my hero, do you wanna come over and watch the Grammys with us? There will be pizza." After this, the model tweeted Ferguson and asked him to tell the congresswoman "we are normal". The Democrat, who is the youngest ever US congresswoman, said: "Yes! We can live-tweet me burning something in the kitchen."

Teigen, who is one of President Donald Trump's most outspoken celebrity critics, replied: "Perfect! We have extremely different strengths except I still sometimes burn things." The budding friendship garnered great excitement on social media, with some of their followers asking if they could join in on the fun.
Jules Suzdaltsev wrote: "Name a better duo, I’ll wait." A second user said: "This type of wholesome interaction is the reason why I still have twitter wow." A third person added: "This is the crossover I didn’t know I needed but can’t wait to witness." Needless to say, social media is completly invested in seeing this new friendship take shape in front of their screens.
Ocasio-Cortez used to work as a bartender before she demolished Democrat stalwart Joe Crowley, who is the 10-term representative and then-fourth-ranking Democrat in the House, in 2018. The socialist from the South Bronx has previously worked as a waitress, children's book publisher, community activist, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and volunteered for Bernie Sanders during his 2016 presidential campaign.
She is a staunch supporter of abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency and the creation of a universal healthcare system. She has already asserted in 2019 that Trump is "no question" a racist.
Teigen is also equally critical of the president and began trolling the man way before he even announced that he was running for president. In 2017, she told USA Today: "I’ve actually been a big Donald Trump hater for a long time. If you go back, I’ve been trolling him for about five to seven years now." She continued: "I’ve been doing this forever and I take pride in that ... I can’t believe somebody could actually do this all day, every day, and still be president. If I mysteriously go missing in the next four years then that’s what happened."
The Grammy Awards will be held on February 10 in Los Angeles. It is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. PST and will be broadcast live on CBS from the Staples Center in the city. The ceremony will be hosted by Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys.
