Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney hilariously mocked Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her statements over the creation of the 22nd amendment. During an MSNBC townhall Ocasio-Cortez claimed Republicans created term limits in order to prevent FDR from winning another election. However, by the time the bill was passed FDR was dead for two years.
Liz Cheney sent Ocasio-Cortez a tweet, “We knew the Democrats let dead people vote. According to @AOC, they can run for President, too.”
Ocasio-Cortez responded back in failing manner, “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Retweeted Liz Cheney

Cheney responded with a School House Rock video over the Constitution, “Hey @AOC, I know you’re busy so I thought this short video would be helpful to introduce you to the basics of the Constitution. If you’re still trying to figure out how a bill becomes a law, they have a great video on that, too. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=RnVmIrAiQB8 ”
