There’s nothing more frightening than seeing an individual throw their hat into the ring for the presidency of this great nation of ours who has no actual idea how the government works.
Like Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren for example. Warren apparently has no idea how many actual branches of government exist — the answer is three, folks — which she made clear during an interview on CNN on Tuesday.
Warren joined CNN’s Anderson Cooper on “Anderson Cooper 360” to discuss a variety of issues, including the on-going government shutdown.
“Well, let’s talk about the balance of power,” Warren responded. “There are two coequal branches of government, the president of the United States and the Congress.”
There are three branches of the U.S. government: The legislative branch, which makes laws; the executive branch, which enforces laws; and the judicial branch, which interprets laws.

Unfortunately for the American people, Warren isn’t the only ignoramus in the bunch on Capitol Hill. Just a few months ago, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a similar statement illustrating her ignorance of the three branches of government.
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: "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."
