If, for some bizarre and inexplicable reason, you are an ardent supporter of Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, you should probably do everything in your power to keep her from making public statements.
Every time Ocasio-Cortez opens her mouth, a tiny shred of logic somewhere in the world perishes.
Whether she’s unintentionally telling her fans to vote Republican or showing a resounding inability to answer even the simplest of questions, Ocasio-Cortez’s ineptitude is not lost on anyone who is not blinded by the false allure of socialism.
Dude, the Democrats gotta keep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez away from cameras and microphones. She has no clue what she’s talking about. It’s amazing that she won her primary with so little knowledge.
A testament, perhaps, to the overall quality of Congressional candidates.

Unfortunately for her supporters, Ocasio-Cortez has made it pretty clear she has no intention of shying away from the limelight.
Her latest blunder paints a bleak picture for a woman whom so many far-left Democrats so desperately want to idolize.
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: “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 a video immortalized on social media, Ocasio-Cortez addressed her constituents with what was supposed to be an uplifting, rallying message. What they got instead, however, was another glimpse into the barren landscape that is Ocasio-Cortez’s knowledge.
“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,” she said in the clip.
As numerous people have pointed out, there are no three “chambers” of the government. There are, however, three “branches” of the government, none of which are quite what Ocasio-Cortez listed.
As any fifth-grader who’s taken a social studies class can tell you, the three branches of the government are the executive (the presidency), legislative (the Senate and House of Representatives) and judicial (Supreme Court and lower courts).
Look, Ocasio-Cortez could very well be a lovely human being, politics not withstanding.
Maybe she helps elderly ladies cross the street and always tips a solid 20 percent (though that might be doubtful). I have no clue.
But when it comes to someone who is literally a congresswoman, there just has to be a baseline expectation and a minimal level of knowledge that should accompany the position.
There is rapidly mounting evidence that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez simply does not meet those expectations. It should be triggering all sorts of klaxons and alarms among the far left.
Something tells me it won’t.
