History U.S. Senate WTF?!

Marsha Blackburn Tries To Give Liberals A Lesson On The Constitution And Winds Up Proving Her Own Ignorance

In an effort to explain why she is opposed to the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) cited the U.S. Constitution as her rationale.

But instead of referencing the Constitution, Blackburn proved her own massive ignorance, quoting the Declaration of Independence.

Here’s the tweet Blackburn sent out on Wednesday afternoon:


As HuffPost notes, this isn’t the first time Blackburn has gotten American history horrible wrong:

Blackburn has something of a history of constitutional screwups. Last year, she vowed: “We will never rewrite the Constitution of the United States,” seemingly ignoring the 27 times it’s been amended. Blackburn even co-sponsored resolutions in support of three potential amendments.

It didn’t take long before social media lit up with laughter and mockery, all aimed at the ditzy Tennessee senator, who has a degree in home economics and clearly didn’t bother to study very hard in college.
