Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just took her feud with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to new heights, pulling a familiar card from Pelosi’s book.
Following a back and forth between the two that has gone on for several days, The House Speaker finally uttered the words many Democrats have been praying someone would tell Ocasio-Cortez, STOP tweeting.
That request was too much for Ocasio-Cortez to handle and the freshman Rep took her argument to the world, accusing the speaker of racism.
“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,” she said to The Washington Post.
“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,” she said.
Ocasio-Cortez’s response came just hours after Pelosi asked them to stop tweeting.
Party infighting at it’s finest, brought to you by the Dem party.
“You got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it. But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just OK,” Pelosi said during a closed meeting of House Democrats, according to a source who was in the room.
