Incredibly, Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) can’t name the three branches of (American) government even though she is soon to be in one of them. But that doesn’t stop her from attempting to recruit more far-left political candidates. During a conference call with Justice Democrats, a far-left political group, she remarked, “If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress—uh, rather-- the presidency, the Senate, and the House in 2020…”
The three branches of Congress—uh, rather government—are actually the executive, legislative and judicial. As any fourth-grader could have told her in years past. She was 0-for-3! How is that possible? And the people elected her in an orgiastic celebration of ignorance!
I honestly wonder if Ocasio-Cortez could name three world leaders. Or three of the first Ten Amendments to the Constitution (also known to particularly pointy-headed types as The Bill of Rights). Could she name three integers? Could she identify three of the seven continents? Three consonants? Three senses? I wonder if she could name three state capitals… or three states. Could she identify three of the seven dwarves, perhaps?
The esteemed Rep.-elect didn’t even try to feign shame, rather she tweeted out: “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.”
Assuming she meant to write “real-time” instead of “real-tomd,” that reinforces her complete cluelessness of the three branches of government. She thought evil, misogynistic Republicans were chiding her for saying “three chambers of Congress,” not “three chambers of government,” rather than for her utter inability to name those three “chambers.”
Republicans want the best possible healthcare for people, Ms. O-C. They just know how best to deliver it. There’s one thing I think we can all agree on, however: we’re all glad you’re not our doctor. Can you identify three internal organs?
