“It’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.”
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is mocked and made fun of for all of the stupid things she says, does and tweets and rightfully so. Anyone so painfully ignorant in such a position of power deserves much of the public scorn they receive, especially when the decisions they make have a direct impact on the lives of Americans.
Well, it appears that the right may have their own AOC, so to speak. Former Auburn football coach and Republican Tommy Tuberville won election to the United States Senate on Nov 3, defeating Democrat Doug Jones.
In a recent interview with the Alabama Daily News, Tuberville shows he doesn’t have a grasp on our three branches of government.
In the interview, Tuberville is asked about the number of Republicans and Democrats in the Senate, he says that both parties are going to have to work together and divided government was what the Founding Fathers intended for all three branches of government.
Tuberville then goes on to name the three branches but instead of, you know, saying the legislative, judicial and executive, he gets it very, very wrong.
According to the newly elected Republican senator from Alabama, the three branches are the House, Senate and executive.
