Pelosi Turns Up The Heat On Ocasio-Cortez
It looks like constant failure among the Democrats has devolved the party into a state of constant in-fighting.
The insults are piling from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. After slamming freshman congresswoman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Pelosi is coming back to kick her party member when she’s down.
While speaking at the London School of Economics and Political Science, Pelosi was asked what she though of Ocasio-Cortez’s popularity. It looks like the question may have made the senior Democrat a bit jealous.
In a backhanded compliment, Pelosi shared how she thought AOC was a “wonderful” person but that her election to office was an easy win.
“When we won this election it wasn’t in districts like mine,” Pelosi explained, “or Alexandria’s, however, she’s a wonderful member of Congress I think all of our colleagues will attest.”
Pelosi wasn’t finished sharing just how little possibility the young socialist had of losing. “But those are districts that are solidly democratic. This glass of water would win with a ‘d’ next to its name in those districts,” she shared.
“And not to diminish the exuberance and the personality and the rest of Alexandria and the other members,” Pelosi added, “but when I said three, they were talking about three that were getting a good deal of press on it.”
She ended saying that, “the 43 districts, we won 43 net gain of 40, were right down the middle.”
It looks like Pelosi might be getting tired of Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist antics and is looking to make a sacrifice of her failed attempts at legislation.
