What is it with politicians who look like this?
Does this trait affect their ability to think?
See the similarity with Cindy and this US dumb arse congresswoman?
Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez may need another history lesson. The rising Democratic star appeared confused about the presidency of her party’s iconic leader, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and constitutional history.
“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt did not get re-elected,” she said at an MSNBC network event last week.
According to AOC, Congress amended the Constitution to prevent FDR from being re-elected:
(Reminder, FDR died in office in 1945; the 22nd Amendment came in 1947)
The 22nd amendment limiting all future U.S. Presidents to two-terms was passed by Congress in 1947. However, the idea of limiting the presidency to two terms well-predates the 20th century with Congress considering the issue as early as the 18th century.
