Nancy Pelosi Burns Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘All These People Have Their Public Whatever And Their Twitter World’

0 2,008

Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) got really ticked with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who criticized her and other far-left freshmen congresswomen for voting against a $4.6 billion border bill that President Trump signed into law on Monday. Congress approved the bill with the help of four moderate Democrats.

In a New York Times interview, Pelosi slammed the progressive wing of her party for not also supporting the humanitarian-assistance measure. She knows how bad it makes them look. “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi said. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.” She’s referring to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley.

Pelosi continued: “If the left doesn’t think I’m left enough, so be it… We have to have a solution, not just a Twitter fight. While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House.”

Ocasio-Cortez slammed Pelosi for burning her and the others: “That public ‘whatever’ is called public sentiment,” Ocasio-Cortez answered later in a Twitter message. “And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country.”

In another message, Ocasio-Cortez went on to defend the use of social media by herself and her fellow newcomers to Congress, over the more traditional and often more expensive and time-consuming methods favored by longer-serving lawmakers. “I find it strange when members act as though social media isn’t important,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “They set millions of [dollars] on [fire] to run TV ads so people can see their message.”

“I haven’t dialed for dollars *once* this year,” she added, “& have more time to do my actual job. Yet we’d rather campaign like it’s 2008.” Let me translate here… she’s calling Pelosi old and stupid.

She also criticized the Democrats who decided to vote along with Republicans on the spending plan to address issues at the U.S.-Mexico border. “I don’t believe it was a good idea for Dems to blindly trust the Trump admin when so many kids have died in their custody. It’s a huge mistake,” she wrote. “This admin also refuses to hand over docs to Congress on the whereabouts of families. People’s lives are getting bargained, & for what?”

Just a note for posterity… very few illegal alien children have died under Trump’s admin and those that have died have done so because of their parents or guardians putting them in deadly jeopardy coming here and they are being pushed by Democrats to do so who could care less whether those children live or die. The truth hurts especially when you are a shameless, selfish, narcissistic leftist.

From Fox News:

“In a Washington Post op-ed published Friday, author Ryan Grim writes that Ocasio-Cortez sees older Democrats as too eager to compromise with Republicans, whom she regards as “clowns.”

“Ocasio-Cortez told me that she treats Republicans like buffoons because that’s how they’ve behaved for as long as she can remember,” Grim writes. “’Even before I was of voting age, I saw Republicans accuse the Obamas of doing a ‘terrorist fist bump,’ so they’ve been clowns since I was a teen,’ she said.”

“Meanwhile, some Republicans and other critics have called Ocasio-Cortez hypocritical for opposing the border bill, which her critics say was designed to address many of the problems that she and other far-left Democrats have been complaining about in recent weeks.

“People like AOC create the disaster, refuse to fix it, vote against funding to help people and then go down there to attack the people who are saying to her, ‘We don’t have enough money, we don’t have enough facilities,’” former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” last week, calling Ocasio-Cortez “viciously dishonest.”‘

Well said, Newt and absolutely spot on.

You just gotta love it when an uncivil war breaks out on the left and they start nuking each other. At least I do.
