Ocasio Cortez, being the savant that she is, may have found a loophole:


2028 WATCH … 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.”

Don't kid yourself she wants to be POTUS

ETA NOTE: The Constitution does not say “he”. It says “any person.”

If she does run it'll be a guaranteed win for the republicans.

Here is the actual context, but I didn't expect Cortez to get it right anyways.




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.

Agreed. Much less the constitution. Do democrats even recognize that old thing anymore?

Can't get what they want they call the lawyers.

Not a surprise.



To add I don't think she will be around very long it seems her handlers can't handle her. Lots of laws to break for the little bug eyed monster.

This would be a great way to guarantee the Democrats lose. It is bad enough she is a communist, but the fact that she is so stupid helps even more.

That just shows that she has never bothered to read it. SMH


She's a whack job, but I give her credit for busting her butt to get what she wanted.

I read an article on Vox earlier advocating that the Constitution should be "updated" so Cortez and other young 20 somethings can run for president..

Madness.

So...like Trump?
Can't get what he wants in a business deal? Better sue them.
Anonymous Op-Ed written in the New York Times? He wanted the attorney general to investigate it to tell him who wrote it.

It's a lawyer's job to do slimy stuff like this. That's why lawyers are almost universally hated, they game the system to the benefit of their client, whoever said client might be.

The only hole that girl is gonna find is the big black one in the middle of her head

(And for all the whiners who live to get their knickers in a knot, the word black as used there was not a racist reference, rather it was in reference to an astronomical phenomenon.)

So Alexandria Bimbette-Cortex Marx can't even READ the Constitution correctly.


Well, words are haaaa-aard.

I know I'm missing something here, but what is she actually saying?

That because she thinks the constitution says "he," that she will run for president in order to get republicans to approve this equal rights amendment? And, that this "threat" somehow has teeth because she is under the age requirement?

I must be wrong, because that makes about as much sense as saying "I like cornbread because planes have dingleberries."

To preface, she may have been kidding. Text can almost always be taken out of context.

To answer you, that's pretty much the gist of it. She's going to force the Republican's hand on the equal rights amendment by running for president.

Personal opinion: why she needs to force their hand on this at all is beyond me. Just give ladies equal rights! Why does that bother so many people? It truly confounds me, I don't get it.

OK, so let's see what we have here:
  • She's going to run for President even though the Constitution says she can't.

  • She says she can do this because the Constitution says "he," when it says "any person."

  • She's going to do this to force the Congress to change the Constitution, but the Congress doesn't have the final say on amendments... that's the states.

  • All this is necessary because women don't have equal rights, even though they do.
Am I missing anything here?

Soooo much stoopid, sooooo little time...
