To be honest, we’re looking for a way that this would make sense in context and that we’re not just seeing the part of the clip where Sen. Elizabeth Warren says there are two co-equal branches of government. Why? Because we want to be fair. But after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez failed the same quiz with her chambers of government, maybe the setup of the U.S. government isn’t that widely known.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) doesn't know how many branches of government exist: "There are two co-equal branches of government, the president of the United States and the Congress"

The Notorious RBG is gonna be ticked off that she’s been forgotten again.
Friendly reminder: Elizabeth Warren is a Harvard Professor. ?

She was 2/3rds correct, which I suppose is better than 1/1024th correct.

Wow! @AOC qualifies as her running mate

Flashback to last November:
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: "If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — Uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House."

@SenatorWarren 4th grade social studies. Did they not teach you that on the reservation?

Well, in fairness, she was a quota hire at Harvard.

In fairness to Senator Warren, perhaps, Democrats view their activist judiciary confirmations as an extension of the legislative branch.
