The viral video racked up tens of millions of views, and instantly made Sanchez an online standout while also promoting Sanders to a younger generation.
Last March, Neekolul posted another "OK Boomer" video, this time promoting another democratic-socialist politician — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). In this TikTok video, Sanchez is wearing a $58 sweatshirt that reads: "TAX THE RICH." The pricey shirt is sold by Ocasio-Cortez's merchandise shop that completely embraces capitalism.
Last week, Sanchez bragged about her new $2 million apartment. Neekolul gave her hundreds of thousands of social media followers a 10-minute virtual tour of her swanky new abode, complete with smart "Martha Stewart"-style kitchen, "East Wing" gaming room, master bedroom with "180-degree" views of the city skyline, and a walk-in closet.

Last month, Sanchez posed with a brand new convertible BMW. Fox Business estimates Nicole Sanchez has a net worth of between $1 to $5 million.
Online commenters quickly branded Sanchez as a "hypocrite," and told her to "pay more taxes."
Sanchez responded to the criticism by saying that "tax the rich" only applies to "like billionaires."
"I think when people mean like tax rich, I think at the end of the day they do mean like billionaires and people that have insane unfathomable amounts of wealth," Sanchez said. "Listen, listen whoever wants to show me to where those $1 to $5 million dollars are, I would happily follow you and reclaim them because I have no idea where this money is at or where it's from."
