Capitol Hill newbie Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) just took her catfight with SanFran Nancy to a new level-by accusing the House Speaker of “singling out” women of color in an attempt to keep AOC and her new radicals in check. “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,” Ocasio-Cortez told The Washington Post. “But the persistent singling out…the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.” Outlook for AOC’s electoral future: not so good.
Here’s more from Town Hall…
The war between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is approaching nuclear reactor meltdown levels. This was bound to happen. It’s the new guard versus the old guard. That battle has intensified over the border crisis. Moderate House Democrats bolted and pushed to pass the Senate’s border package, which was also overwhelmingly bipartisan. It’s also one that President Trump said he would sign. The House passed their version, but had provisions that would have hampered enforcement of federal immigration laws. The funny thing is that AOC voted against the House bill too.
AOC, Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) all make up this far left witches coven and they’re even giving the House Democratic leadership heartburn. Pelosi has dismissed them, their policy initiatives, and said that their clout is grossly overrepresented due to their social media activity.
