Sarah Palin just took on the socialist Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Corte and taught her a lesson in history and civics.
The New York Post reported that Sarah Palin excoriated Rep. 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 Sarah Palin’s website from Monday criticized Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, clamming that 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.”
Amid her triumph on November 6th, in New York’s 14th congressional district, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez mistakenly stated that Congress has three chambers during a video call uploaded to social media.
AOC quickly corrected herself in the subsequent sentence before then misidentifying the “three chambers of government.”
Rep. 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 also reported that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was on a Justice Democrats strategy call where she encouraged her colleagues to challenge Democrat incumbents who do not accurately represent them in primary elections.
Once her “word slip” was shared and criticized on social media, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez responded by posting 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.”
