Ocasio-Cortez Fails to Name Three Branches of Government

Posted by M. C. on November 20, 2018

Hopefully Cortez will soon dig a hole deep enough that we won’t be able to hear her.

Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez failed to accurately name the three branches of the federal government while speaking on a video conference call with prospective left-wing candidates on Saturday.

“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 Saturday, speaking on a video call with Justice Democrats.

Contrary to Ocasio-Cortez’s claim, the U.S. government is divided into branches and not chambers.

According to the USA.gov website, the U.S. government is divided into three branches: the executive branch, the judicial branch, and the legislative branch.

An Ohio Republican state representative then called her out on Twitter for failing to correctly name the three branches of the U.S. 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.”

The 3 branches of government: executive, legislative, judicial.

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, they actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make:

that they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare.

Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old Democratic Socialist from New York who has crafted an image of herself as a working-class woman despite being raised in the affluent suburb of Westchester County, will be the youngest female member of the House once she is sworn in this January.

Be seeing you
