It is becoming increasingly clear that far left Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believes in her own hype. She hasn’t even been sworn into Congress yet and she’s joking about running for president. And she is misquoting the United States Constitution in the process.
The Daily Caller reports:
ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ MISQUOTES THE CONSTITUTION
Democratic Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez misquoted the U.S. Constitution while threatening to run for president on Thursday.
According to a recap in Politico’s Playbook, Ocasio-Cortez was doing a Politico photoshoot at Harvard University when she and a photographer joked about a potential presidential run.
“You can’t even run for president for another six years,” the photographer said, pointing out that Ocasio-Cortez just turned 29 years old.
Ocasio-Cortez then claimed that the Constitution only places a presidential age limit on men and threatened to run for president if Republicans don’t pass the Equal Rights Amendment.
“No, not for a long time. Thank God,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Although we’ve been joking that because the Equal Rights Amendment hasn’t been passed yet, the Constitution technically says he cannot run unless he’s 35. … So what we’ll do is we’ll force the Republican Party to pass the Equal Rights Amendment by threatening to run for president.”…
As Playbook notes, the Constitution does not say “he” cannot run — it says “any person.”

She is a walking gaffe machine but the media treats her like a serious person. Why do you think that is?
