Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatens to run for president, severely misquotes the Constitution

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) threatened to run for president last week, severely misquoting the United States Constitution in the process.

What happened?

While participating in a photoshoot for Politico at Harvard last Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez engaged in conversation with her photographer, Politico’s Playbook reported. According to the recap, Ocasio-Cortez threatened to run for president, but misquoted the Constitution’s specific qualifications for the high office.

“You can’t even run for president for another six years,” the photographer told Ocasio-Cortez, who is just 29 years old. The Constitution requires the U.S. president be at least 35 years old.

“No, not for a long time. Thank God,” she replied. “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.”

“That is awesome. All the people who say a literal interpretation of the Constitution is the only thing you should be paying attention to,” the photographer responded.

“Exactly, all those Constitutionalists, I will keep vigilance,” Ocasio-Cortez snarked.
