Twitter was ready to push back.
Palin, like other Republicans, pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez said “three chambers of government,” when she clearly meant “three branches of government” during a video.
“YIKES: Ocasio-Cortez Fumbles Basic Civics TWICE In 1 Statement,” the former Alaska governor wrote on Monday afternoon.
The link led to a blog post about Ocasio-Cortez’s mistake on governorpalin.org.

Of course, Palin pointing out stumbles from Ocasio-Cortez was seen as ironic by many people, who reminded her of the numerous gaffes she made while a member of the 2008 Republican presidential ticket.
Palin’s tweet was thoroughly ratioed, getting more than 9,200 replies compared to just 1,200 retweets and 3,000 likes.

Oh Sarah, you don't want to go there, do you? You don't want us to bring up your interview with @katiecouric where you were given multiple opportunities to simply say what magazines you read. AND you claiming that you can see Russia from your window. @Ocasio2018 https://t.co/4uWkoVPgog

Following the verbal mistake, Ocasio-Cortez hit back against conservatives for “drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips.”
