    In her Instagram story this weekend, AOC explained that she had to get elected to Congress to afford dental treatment.

    "In other words, I got a bag and fixed my teeth. EXCEPT YOU SHOULDN'T NEED A BAG TO FIX YOUR TEETH, GET INSULIN, GET HEALTHCARE," she wrote.

    AOC connected her political ideals to lyrics in Cardi B's popular song "Bodak Yellow," which plays in the background of her story.

    Cardi B quickly responded by encouraging the lawmaker to run for president as soon as she's eligible, which would be the 2024 election.

    She better run for president when she turns 35 https://t.co/TcSfYLGeah

    AOC replied by creating her own definition of the acronym "WAP" – the name of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's recent No. 1 bop.

    So far, tons of people were stoked over AOC's story and Cardi B's response:

    @AOC @iamcardib aoc cardi collab of the century

    @iamcardib AOC first female President, they gonna put her face on the $20 bill. I will be only purchasing shit with $20 bills after that.

    Cardi B should’ve had @AOC in the WAP video instead of Kylie Jenner.
