Speaker Nancy Pelosi is airing her grievances against socialist progressive upstarts Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) for failing to follow her marching orders. “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi told the New York Times. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.” Pelosi then invited them to her basement to see single-payer political signs from 30 years ago, noting that “We have to have a solution, not just a Twitter fight.” The Democratic infighting further underscores how leaderless the party is in the midst of its Leftward drift into the 2020 presidential battle. Advantage Trump.

Over the weekend, the notoriously frosty relationship between Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and newcomer progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez turned heated after Pelosi lobbed a thinly-veiled insult at Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter politicking.
On Friday, Pelosi aired a series of grievances in The New York Times, hitting back at Ocasio-Cortez and fellow progressives, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) for failing to fall in line behind the Democratic caucus and approve a $4.5 billion emergency spending bill aimed at addressing the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, even after the quartet complained loudly of the treatment asylum seekers were receiving.
