NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - U.S. Rep-elect Alexandria Osasio-Cortez (D-NY) referred to "all three chambers of government" in a plea for progressives to run for office.
Later, she lashed out at Republicans via Twitter, accusing the GOP of "drooling" in anticipation of the 29-year-old’s every misstep.
It came after the socialist streamed a live plea to progressives to run for office. She first referred to taking back all three chambers of Congress, and then tried to correct herself to say "all three chambers of government."
After several people mocked her apparent ignorance over the structure of government she tweeted: "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 (sic), they [should] actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make: that they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare."
She later tweeted a correction on the spelling of “real-time.”
Osasio-Cortez has made several complaints on social media since her surprise election. She's complained that it is too expensive for her to live in Washington, that she's been mistaken for an intern on Capitol Hill and that opponents have unfairly attacked her choice of clothing.
Ocasio-Cortez stunned many in the political world in June when she defeated longtime incumbent U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, in a primary race.
