‘Umm….’ Ocasio-Cortez completely schooled when she lists better ways to spend $5.7 billion than on border wall

Schooling Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may never get old.

The New York Democratic socialist who regularly entertains with her embarrassing political gaffes just sparked another round of social media face-palms.

Ocasio-Cortez questioned how Republicans planned to pay for President Trump’s proposed border wall after passing a spending bill allocating $5.7 billion for it.

The freshman lawmaker suggested other options for spending the money, such as increasing pay for teachers, subsidies for college tuition and “green jobs.”

These, after all, seem much more important ways to spend Americans’ taxes than providing national security.

And just like that, it was time for Ocasio-Cortez to go back to school as social media users reminded her that, in fact, the U.S. Constitution actually requires the federal government to protect its citizens.

The “United States shall guarantee to every State a republican form of government and shall protect each of them against invasion,” reads Article Four, Section Four  of the U.S. Constitution.
