Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has seemingly been a gaffe machine ever since she popped onto the political scene, and now that she’s headed to the House of Representatives in Washington, it seems we’re going to be seeing a lot more of her making headlines.
Unfortunately for her, it seems she’s going viral for all the wrong reasons. Like a video capturing her apparent lack of knowledge concerning the three branches of government.
This is painfully embarrassing.
“If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Saturday while on a call with Justice Democrats.
The three branches, not chambers, of the U.S. government, are the executive, legislative, and judicial.

Ocasio-Cortez then thought it would be a good idea to bring more attention to the video so all of her followers on Twitter could see that she does not know what she is talking about.
“Maybe instead of Republicans drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips that I correct in real-tomd [sic], they actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make: that they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare.”

Ouch. Just ouch.
Lots of folks on the left raked former President George W. Bush over the coals for making less than intelligent statements during speeches and public speaking engagements. Well, for all intents and purposes, it certainly seems the left has finally found his liberal counterpart.
Surely the Democratic Party isn’t attempting to build up Ocasio-Cortez to be some sort of potential presidential candidate way on down the line, right? They can’t possibly be that far gone, can they?
Only time will tell.
