AOC suggests PELOSI is RACIST for singling out ‘newly elected women of color’
Here we go with the Democrats eating each other alive! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now implying that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is racist because she has been 'disrespectful' towards the 'newly elected women of color' who are now serving in Congress. Oh this is getting soooo juicy and I am loving the Democrat implosion that's taking place right before the big 2020 election!!
So what happened? Well, AOC was talking to The Washington Post about the issues she's having with Pelosi and the so-called progressives of the Democratic Party. "Pelosi was quoted in a New York Times article on July 6 taking a thinly veiled shot at Ocasio-Cortez and several other freshman Democrats who voted against a bill to help migrants at the border," per a report written by Chuck Ross over at the Daily Caller.
Pelosi told the Washington Times, "All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got."
OH MY GOSH!!!
Who is Pelosi talking about?
Well obviously it has to be AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and I guess the fourth person would be Ayanna Pressley, but no one knows who she is. Regardless, all four of them are considered minority women.
Ross continued, saying that "Ocasio-Cortez told The Post that she initially believed Pelosi was employing a strategy to protect moderate Democrats. But she suggested she believes there could be a racial tinge to Pelosi’s repeated rebuke of Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow freshmen."
Maybe Nancy Pelosi just doesn't like people like Rashida, Ilhan, and AOC who constantly make the Democratic Party look like a group of failures.
AOC now says to The Post, "When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood. But the persistent singling out … it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful … the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color."
Nancy Pelosi has already responded and she does not regret any of her remarks. She literally said, “I have no regrets about anything.” Pelosi also went after progressive Dems because of their behavior on social media when they constantly criticize members of their own party.
Pelosi said, per a report on Politico, ""So, again, you got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it," Pelosi told Democrats, according to a source in the room. "But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just OK."
So basically, Pelosi is saying to the Democrats who run their mouth on social media to say it to her FACE and stop hiding behind a Tweet.
Pelosi VS AOC is looking really good right now! The new blood vs the veteran - let's see which one brings the claws out faster!
