Ocasio-Cortez Was Mocked for Calling Gov Branches ‘Chambers’ ─ She Claims the GOP Is Using Her as a Distraction

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was elected to represent her district at the U.S. Capitol, yet doesn’t know the basic terms for how the government is structured.

Newly elected Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez was recently on a call with Justice Democrats and potential liberal candidates when she revealed how little she knows about the American political system.

“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,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

The politician seems to be confusing the term “chambers” for branches of government. Additionally, the government is made up of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted shortly after the video was released, claiming that critics were only focusing on her blunder to distract from the real issues.

Yet she seems to be doing the exact thing she is criticizing the GOP for by pointing to a different issue instead of the one she was initially called out for.

The organization that Ocasio-Cortez was on the conference call with, Justice Democrats, hopes to oust any Democrat who is “demographically and ideologically out-of-touch with their districts,” according to The Huffington Post.

This is not the first time that the politician has made blunders and false claims, and it will probably not be the last.

Cortez, you have as much business of being in D.C. as a goat. I’ll look forward to making fun of you. When it comes to things of politics you don’t have a clue. Free, free, free.

Here’s the scary part. She and her ilk are in charge of making laws over the rest of us. Sjhe may be ignorant and hilarious, but her agenda is dead serious.

It is really easy to be used as a distraction when you are a flaming idiot. Just keep opening your mouth and saying stupid things and you will be the laughing stock of the Congress. Way to go girl.
