AOC Is Streaming Among Us Right Now, Watch Here

AOC is playing Among Us with Canadian parliament member Jagmeet Singh and other guests on Friday.

63 Comments

For the second time ever, US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is streaming Among Us right now. Following her record-breaking stream, AOC is taking part in another stream, this time one organized by Jagmeet Singh, leader of the Canadian New Democratic Party. The stream is live right now on Twitch, and you can watch it for yourself below. It's already cracked the 100k viewer mark.

The stream is ongoing, and it features well-known video game streamers such as HasanAbi, Northernlion, and XQC, who, notably, was recently banned temporarily from Twitch. That was due to a cheating incident in a recent Fall Guys tournament.

Today's stream began at 4 PM PT (7 PM ET). We don't know how long it will run for, but her first stream lasted for several hours as she worked to encourage people to get out and vote. While that game was broadcast on multiple Twitch channels, AOC's channel alone saw peak concurrent viewers top a whopping 430,000.

Plans for a stream were announced on Thanksgiving day, as Singh publicly invited AOC, Northerlion, and HasanAbi to take part in a stream. AOC replied on Tiwtter, saying she was in for the Friday night stream.

This is the first time that Singh has organized a stream, but it's an increasingly popular way for politicians to connect with constituents, especially this year with so many stuck inside due to COVID-19. Last time, AOC streamed alongside US House Representative Ilhan Omar, and viewers were encouraged to make a voting plan. This stream is, of course, happening on the other side of the US presidential election.

For more on AOC's first Among Us stream, check out GameSpot editor Michael Higham's editorial, AOC Streaming Among Us Works Because It's Genuine. If you haven't tried the game for yourself, the PC version is on sale as part of Steam's Black Friday/Autumn sale.

@matr0ska: Same could be said about everyone in the news today. Everyone is a racist apparently. She is incredibly naive though and embarrassingly wears her idealism without shame. She’s the perfect candidate for young and confused people. You can just blame everyone else for your problems then give your money to the government for them to spend it on things they think we need.

@denaut: I have to admit that is the cutest white supremacist, I've ever seen. I always thought they were short, white, old men with tiny wankers.... guess they come in all flavors.

The only Among Us streams I'll watch are Penguin0's. I have no desire to watch vamp-I mean public servants pretend to be normal. Also good job bringing on Hasan "America deserved 911" Piker last time.

playing video games and raising money from people who might be in debt or not have jobs...

Isn’t that what taxes are for?

Spending is only going up and politicians making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in wages is not making it better so maybe it time to take the money out of politics.

I've just never enjoyed watching others play games or E-sports, what limited time I have off work I would rather be gaming. But watching her down Cheetos like a madman was cute and funny.

I am glad of one thing, a government employee playing a video game and not accusing them of violence like Congressman "Jack" Thompson who was disbarred and finally forgotten. Joe Liberman and Leland Yee both who led serious bills that could have greatly damaged the gaming industry as we know it. I am glad these hacks are gone and forgotten. And AU bans that went no where.

At least this congresswoman is promoting games and charities, and causes instead of trying to scare parents and grandparents into banning games.

Some of the video above are pretty funny. I hope more gamers get into government.

@id0ntkn0w7: Watch the video, 06:58- "You could tell by the very slow pace of murders going on, (giggling)". That is a person into the game.

@sony1979: Because look at this comment:

"I've just never enjoyed watching others play games or E-sports, what limited time I have off work I would rather be gaming. But watching her down Cheetos like a madman was cute and funny.

AOC is a major political figure (like it or not) playing video games like it's not a big deal. That's big news for games.

She’s awful. I can’t wait until her career is over so that I don’t have to hear about her and her complete lack of political accomplishments anymore.

@justthetip: What bothers you about her?

She was 29 when she won her seat in 2018, and the youngest congresswoman ever elected. I hate to say it, but that's kind of a political accomplishment.

@texasgoldrush: But if most peoples' serious ideas actually worked out, it probably wouldn't be the apocalypse. Same can't be said here.

@Thuban_23: Sweden has a huge welfare net, public health care, free higher education, and a strong entrepreneurial class and a high number of billionaires per capita.

How would implementing similar systems here lead to American apocalypse?

Edit: Oh, we're talking about Defund the Police again. Yeah that's stupid.

@g_lethal: She's literally raising money FOR the people suffering from the consequences of coronavirus. She also regularly puts Mitch McConnell (i.e. her colleagues) on blast for ending congress without producing relief for coronavirus (i.e. for not doing what she's doing on a governmental scale).

What are you talking about?

@VANGUARD003: Putting the US $2T further in debt to fund abortions and rigging the election by making mail-in ballot fraud legal has nothing to do with coronavirus. Meanwhile, Nancy and AOC were willing to throw Americans a $200 per week check for 3 weeks. Oh so much relief in that bill.

@g_lethal: She just raised almost 200 grand for food pantries and eviction defense with this stream. She's tried and tried to get a covid stimulus but they get blocked (maybe you could check out who's blocking that incredibly essencial lifeline for people going through layoffs, evictions, unemployment)

@g_lethal: lol Sounds like a trump problem. Meanwhile, your president is fraudulently claiming election fraud instead of helping people. And oh that's right, he could've helped people last month but told people to vote for him instead of giving the people the help they needed then. And oh that's also right, moscow mitch hasn't been willing to provide and compromise for a better stim bill.

So yea, in typical fashion w/ you guys, blaming others when it's a you problem .

@kgsg-19-2: You understand that "President" does not equal "mommy," and nobody's obligated to take care of you than you, right?

Also, as to the election... get ready.

@bluestorm83: You understand that's literally the president's job, right? He is the "mommy" of the country and is 100% obligated to serve, protect, and help his citizens when they're in need. But yea, keep pretending you "understand" anything.

Also, as to the election, yea I'm ready for the election that's been over for what, about a month now? I'm also real scared of the president's investigation that just keeps adding votes for Biden and his consecutive failed court cases. But yea, have fun being bilked out of your money while trump pockets your money and your right wing propaganda tells you what you want to hear.

@kgsg-19-2: The "pockets your money" president Trump has donated his entire presidential salary during the past four years -- over $1,200,000.

I'm paying far less taxes under Trump than I'd been paying during each of the previous eight years -- possibly due to the fact that he's the first president in 40 years to not start a new war.

The people who got very rich during the lockdown were the ultra-wealthy billionaires, and Trump is not one of them (in fact, the media gloats about his losing money)

You're not fooling anyone but yourself. If your "new mommy" gets into office, expect more lockdowns and more wars. He's already loading up his cabinet with CFR (Council for Foreign Relations) people, the warmongering meddlers who worked with Bush and Obama.

@bluestorm83: The government has many responsibilities, and one of those is supporting it's citizens during a crisis. It's hardly the time to one of those pick yourself up by the bootstrap types. Our lack of unity and community is part of the reason we're in the position we're in.
