Sarah Palin just took on the socialist darling and new hope for the left Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Corte and taught her a brutal lesson in history and civics.
As reported by The New York Post:
Sarah Palin excoriated Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for “fumbling basic civics” by misidentifying the three branches of government — even though the former Alaska governor has been ridiculed for her own series of political blunders.
The gaffe by the newly elected congresswoman was made in a recent Zoom video, in which she tells her supporters, “… 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 in 2020 …”
An article on Palin’s website on Monday criticized Ocasio-Cortez, saying she “again proved that her transition into the political fray has been bumpy, to say the least, as she recently fumbled basic civics twice in one sentence.”
New York Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez again proved that her transition into the political fray has been bumpy, to say the least, as she recently fumbled basic civics twice in one sentence.
Amid her triumph on November 6th, in New York’s 14th congressional district, Ocasio-Cortez mistakenly said Congress has three chambers during a video call uploaded to social media.
She quickly corrected herself in the subsequent sentence before then misidentifying the “three chambers of government.”
Ocasio-Cortez said: “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 congresswoman-elect said. “We can’t start working in 2020.”
BizPac Review reports Ocasio-Cortez was on a Justice Democrats strategy call where she encouraged other Democrats to challenge Democrat incumbents who do not accurately represent them in primary elections.
Once her “word slip” was shared and subsequently criticized on social media, Ocasio-Cortez responded in a tweet: “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.”
It looks like the Democrats are going to let the inmates run the asylum when Nancy Pelosi, or if Nancy Pelosi wins the day and becomes the new speaker.
