Uh-oh, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a minor slip of the tongue mistake! Everyone FREAK OUT!
In a video posted online, Ocasio-Cortez mistakenly said something about the “three chambers of Congress,” and then about the “three chambers of government,” which she listed as, “the presidency, the Senate, and the House.”
And who was right there to catch her flub but world-renowned rocket scientist, Sarah Palin. Palin sent a tweet with a link to the story on her website that was called “YIKES. Ocasio-Cortez Fumbles Basic Civics TWICE In 1 Statement.”

Yes, that’s Sarah “New Hampshire is part of the Great Northwest” Palin. Shocking that she would think it would be fine and dandy to mock Ocasio-Cortez online after having said some of the dumbest things ever said by a human (like when she couldn’t think of a newspaper and told Katie Couric in 2008 that she read “all of them”), but there’s no accounting for some people’s actions.
Palin’s tweet reached an astounding ratio, with approximately eleven thousand responses and only fifteen hundred retweets and thirty-five hundred likes.
Ocasio-Cortez herself responded by saying that the Republicans tearing her apart are just distracting from the important thing, which is that they “don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare.”
Maybe instead of Republicans drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips that I correct in real-tomd, they actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make:
that they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare. https://t.co/fMOijEa7tF

And of course, because it was Sarah “Paul Revere warned the British” Palin, people on Twitter couldn’t help but make fun of her right back.
Who said, “Vice Presidents will be able to be not only the position flexible, but it’s going to be sort of those other duties as assigned by the president.” (Hint, it was you!)

You have got to be kidding me. You said:
Paul Revere warned the British
Sputnik bankrupted Russia
The Vice President Runs the Senate
The Constitition is based on the Bible
The White House has a ‘department of law’
Should I continue? Because I can…

COURIC: What newspapers did you regularly read before you were tapped for this — to stay informed & understand the world?
PALIN: I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media —
COURIC: But what ones specifically? Can you name any of them?

Here’s a list of Social Studies Facts you got wrong, SP. Including “the Vice President runs the Senate,” “the Founding Fathers said the Pledge of Allegience” and “the White House has a department of law.”

“He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin’ sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free”

Oh no! Should we “refudiate” her?

Sarah Palin really needs to not make fun of other people. Her house is as glass as they come. Her house is like an Apple store (without all the tech stuff inside). And people have some really funny stones.
