Democrat socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a rookie in the political game and, in just a short time, has learned it can be very harsh.
During her first at-bat, Ocasio-Cortez was struck out by the Washington Post by a count of 5 lies to zero truths.
Then, the next time she stepped up to the plate, CNN’s Jake Tapper sent her back to the dugout when he called her out on a crazed idea that the U.S. government can find more than $40 trillion to cover her socialist agenda. She also said spending the $40 trillion would save U.S. taxpayers money… Ouch.
As the Daily Wire reports, her latest blunder was a real doozy.
During a campaign event in New York, Ocasio-Cortez admitted she thought she was running for a position where she gets inaugurated and signs bills into law… like the presidency?
From the report:
Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed her extreme lack of knowledge about the basic roles of the three branches of the federal government during a speech on Monday, suggesting that after she is “inaugurated” into office that she will begin signing bills into law.
Ocasio-Cortez said: “After being spurned over, and over, and over again, short-changed on healthcare, short-changed on criminal justice, short-changed on education, there’s a lot of folks who don’t want to believe anymore [in the political process]. And that’s why what we have accomplished is such an immense responsibility. It is a responsibility.”
Looks good so far, but a steady swing at the wrong time is still called a strike.
“It doesn’t mean you get everything tomorrow,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “As much as I would love that. I would love to get inaugurated January 3rd [and on] January 4th we’re signing healthcare, we’re signing this…”
1…2…3… and she’s out.
From the Daily Wire:
Ocasio-Cortez seemed to be completely unaware of the fact that members of Congress are sworn into office, not inaugurated like the President of the United States.
Ocasio-Cortez also showed that she does not understand that Congress does not sign bills into law, which is the president’s job.

While Ocasio-Cortez showed enough spark to win a primary over senior Democrat Congressman Joe Crowley and won a second, surprise primary election in New York’s 15th district, her ascension to professional politics is a slow one. Some people online were quick to call her out on the blunder:
Good God, she has no *bleeping* idea how government works. This is stuff you learn in 8th grade US History.

This is what happens when schools stopped teaching civics and began teaching social justice instead.

inaugurated @Ocasio2018 – TAKE A CIVICS CLASS PLEASE!
CUSTOMARY that Presidents are inaugurated – NOT members of Congress!
There are however swearing in ceremonies.
What EXACTLY would YOU be signing into law??? You know that you are NOT running for president – right!?

This is so stupid it’s funny but it’s not funny because it’s so stupid that it can’t be funny but it’s still pretty funny but not funny at the same time.
