Pelosi plays down influence of AOC wing of democrats, says IT'S 'like 5 people'. Pelosi ’s claim that the progressive caucus represents about “five people” appears to be correct only when counting lawmakers who voted 97 percent of the time with the New York Democrat.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez snapped at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for criticizing her and a few other left-wing Democrats, renewing a war of words between a rising liberal star and a veteran congressional leader.

"That public 'whatever' is called public sentiment. And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country," the New York Democrat said Saturday about Pelosi after the New York Democrat said Ocasio-Cortez and her inner circle of liberal freshman Democrats were just "four people."

Pelosi stands by comments about members who opposed House border aid bill

Pelosi stands by comments about members who opposed House border aid bill House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stood by her controversial comments about four progressive Democrats who voted against a House bill to address the humanitarian crisis at the border but faced pushback from some on the far-left for not being strong enough. In a news conference on Monday, Pelosi argued the four congresswomen -- Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts -- opposed a bill that was designed "to protect children," though she did not mention the members by name. "All I said was a statement of fact, the four of them opposed the bill.

Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country. “Every single policy proposal that we have adopted and presented to the American public has been overwhelmingly popular, even some with a majority of Republican voters supporting what we’re talking about.”

Pelosi ’s district, which encompasses most of the city of San Fransisco, is like this, too, as she pointed out in the same speech. At this point, it’s impossible to identify what sort of weird tick makes Pelosi compulsively insult Ocasio-Cortez. Is it the fact that she beat a fellow member of the leadership, one

"I find it strange when members act as though social media isn’t important. 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, & have more time to do my actual job. Yet we’d rather campaign like it’s 2008," Ocasio-Cortez added.

In a New York Times interview published Saturday, Pelosi dismissed the influence of Ocasio'Cortez's "Squad," which includes Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts “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.”

This is the latest flare-up between the two Democrats. In April, Pelosi dismissed Ocasio-Cortez fellow left-wing members of the party as insignificant to the larger Democratic caucus.

“That’s like five people,” the California Democrat told Lesley Stahl. After Stahl pushed back saying the "progressive" movement in the party was larger, Pelosi said she considers herself a progressive.

“Well, the progressive — I'm a progressive. Yeah,” Pelosi said.

AOC accuses Kellyanne Conway of using 'sexist' language

AOC accuses Kellyanne Conway of using 'sexist' language Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called Kellyanne Conway "sexist" for saying the New York Democrat's feud with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was a "catfight." "'Catfight' is the sexist term Republicans use when two adult women happen to disagree with each other," Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday in response to Conway. "The reason they find it so novel &exciting is bc the GOP haven’t elected enough women themselves to see that it can, in fact, be a normal occurrence in a functioning democracy." “Catfight” is the sexist term Republicans use when two adult women happen to disagree with each other.

President denied speaker the use of a military aircraft to visit US troops day after she suggested he postpone State of the Union.

AOC wants blood though and she’s sending brush back pitches at Pelosi ’s head right now. Asked “how real” the rumored progressive “animus” toward Pelosi really Going after Pelosi is one thing. Inserting herself into the Presidential race is another. She’s even decided to re-ignite her feud with Amazon.

Ocasio-Cortez has pushed Pelosi to support liberal policies like her Green New Deal and the push for impeaching President Trump. She has also been quick to criticize if the speaker over gestures of bipartisanship.

In June, Ocasio-Cortez condemned Pelosi for approving a vote on a bipartisan border funding relief bill. "Hell no," she said. "That’s an abdication of power we should refuse to accept. They will keep hurting kids if we do."
