Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not the sharpest tool in the shed.
The 29-year-old Congressperson to be said that if Republicans do not pass the Equal Rights Amendment she would run for president to teach them a lesson, Politico reported.
OVERHEARD Thursday at a POLITICO photoshoot at Harvard: REP.-ELECT ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ (D-N.Y.) joking about running for president.
PHOTOG: “What are you, twenty…?”
AOC: “29. I just turned 29.”
PHOTOG: “Happy birthday.”
AOC: “Thank you! Thank you!”
PHOTOG: “You can’t even run for president for another six years.”
AOC: “No, not for a long time. Thank God. 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.”
PHOTOG: “That is awesome. All the people who say a literal interpretation of the Constitution is the only thing you should be paying attention to.”
AOC: “Exactly, all those Constitutionalists, I will keep vigilance.”
Good Lord, woman. That is not what the constitution says!
You likely have never read it but this is the text you are referring to in Article II Section I.
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.
I would have highlighted where it says the word man but it does not exist you simpleton.
