WATCH: AOC Says Constitution Amended So FDR Wasn’t Re-Elected, Just One Major Problem

What freshman Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) doesn’t know about the Constitution could be talked about for weeks.

And yet, AOC continues to talk and gab and bloviate.

During a recent town hall on MSNBC, Alexandria claimed the Constitution was amended to prevent liberal President Franklin Roosevelt from being re-elected in the 1940’s.

But there’s kind of a major problem with her theory.

Tom Elliott tweeted:

According to AOC, Congress amended the Constitution to prevent FDR from being re-elected:

“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt dd not get reelected.”

(Reminder, FDR died in office in 1945; the 22nd Amendment came in 1947)

Thanks for playing, Alexandria! Better luck next time.

Ocasio-Cortez, like many freshman members of Congress (and Democrats, in general), continues to place her foot firmly inside her mouth.

During a committee hearing, AOC said that illegal aliens are “my constituents.”

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) referred to illegal immigrants as her “constituents” during a Thursday House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing.

Ocasio-Cortezwas questioning Wilbur Ross, President Donald Trump’s secretary of commerce, when she made the statement. She began by referencing remarks Republican Kris Kobach made while he was Kansas secretary of state. Kobach encouraged Trump early on in his administration to add a 2020 consensus question about citizenship.

Kobach said, ‘I raised the issue with the president shortly after he was inaugurated’ and ‘he was absolutely interested in this,’” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Shortly thereafter, in April of 2017, Steve Bannon asked you to speak with Mr. Kobach about his ‘ideas about including a citizenship question on the 2020 decennial census.’”

Ross acknowledged he did speak with Kobach early on in the administration, but he was cut off by Ocasio-Cortez before he could clarify what exactly the conversation was about.

This is the problem with Dems. They just don’t understand the law.

For a woman who has no problem offering to raise taxes on the American people, Ocasio-Cortez can’t get around to paying her own.

Doesn’t that sound a little hypocritical?

What about that whole “fair share” thing?

Check this out…

From New York Post:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to pass sweeping tax hikes on the wealthy, but the freshman lawmaker might want to take care of her own unpaid tax bill first.

Brook Avenue Press, a company she founded in 2012 to publish children’s books in The Bronx, owes the state $1,870.36 in corporate taxes, public records show.

The state slapped the company with a warrant on July 6, 2017, two months after Ocasio-Cortez announced her candidacy to run against Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley for the district that encompasses parts of Queens and The Bronx.

AOC needs to learn a few things before she keeps talking. It’s really that simple.

Why she insists on making a fool of herself makes little sense, unless all she truly cares about is seeing her name in the headlines.
