Once More, Pelosi Scoffs at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Her So-Called Movement


It’s hard to know exactly what drives House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s apparent disdain for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Perhaps she’s jealous that the young congressional freshman is getting so much media attention. Maybe she just doesn’t get along with her personally. Or perhaps she’s been around politics long enough to tell the difference between a genuine rising star and a dunderhead who got lucky. Whatever the case may be, Pelosi seems to take a covert shot across the bow at AOC whenever she’s asked about the Bronx Bimbo, and Sunday night’s “60 Minutes” interview was no exception.

“So you are contending with a group in Congress: Over here on the left flank are these self-described socialists, on the right, these moderates. And you yourself said that you’re the only one who can unify everybody. And the question is can you?” asked host Lesley Stahl.

“By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to go down the mainstream,” Pelosi replied.

“They know that?”

“They do,” Pelosi said.

“But it doesn’t look like that,” Stahl said. “It looks as if it’s fractured. You have these wings– AOC, and her group on one side–“

“That’s like five people,” Pelosi deadpanned.

Cold.

Stahl persisted on that topic for a bit, and Pelosi tried to convince the “60 Minutes” audience that she was a progressive and the whole nine, but we really just wanted to highlight that “five people” remark because it says so much about how Pelosi views Ocasio-Cortez. And it shows you that no matter how many times AOC gets to the top of the Reddit Politics site, her influence inside Capitol Hill is somewhere between not-much and none.

This isn’t the first time that Pelosi has jabbed AOC in public. Not long ago, when asked about which climate change proposals the Democrats were looking at, Pelosi mentioned the “green new dream, or whatever” in a dismissive tone that would have made a lifelong Republican proud. And just last week, Pelosi said in an interview that getting votes on the House floor was a lot more important than amassing followers on Twitter, a comment that couldn’t have been more clearly directed at AOC if she’d actually said her name.

Now, is all of this important or is it just Washington gossip? Well, we see it as important because it is an illustration of just how divided the Democrats are going into 2020. And while they are fighting over whether to go the Biden/Pelosi path or the Bernie/AOC way, Trump will have a golden opportunity to steamroll his way to a second term.

If that’s what having a goober like Ocasio-Cortez in Congress buys us, it’s a price worth paying.

  1. The only Movement that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be concerned with is a good Bowel Movement, it might clear up her head

    • Amazing, she cost the NYC area 25,000 Amazon jobs, 12000 Construction jobs, and 75,000 support jobs. She is still in congress, she should be tarred and feathered than banished to Puerto Rico!

  2. This is what happens when you put all the refugees, non-vetted picked by the UN because that’s what Democrats allowed Obama to do.
    They take over a town, then the State, vote in there Muslim people with the help of Muslim Brotherhood. They use their courts, take over the schools and indoctrination of every kid.
    Our schools are full of Illegals and any many are involved with gangs and Drugs. They are going after the good kids, threatening to kill their family if they don’t join the gangs.

  3. AOC is making Pelosi look foolish, she continually is outsmarting her, and AOC’s age is equal to her IQ, 29.
    When will the Massachusetts Department of Education do an investigation of the Boston University Economics Faculty? They actually gave Alexandra Cortez a Degree in Economics. Its intuitively obvious even to the most casual observer AOC is inept, clueless knows absolutely NOTHING about Economics, she would have failed the easiest Micro and Macro 101 Economics classes in any school in the nation. She does NOT know the difference between a million, billion or trillion! Remember NY lost 25,000 Amazon Jobs 1,300 Construction Jobs for a 8 Million SQ. FT. Headquarter Bldg. 75,000 Support Jobs to work with Amazon Amazing, she is still in Congress and the media’s Sweetheart. In reality over 100,000 families will be deprived a better life.

  4. Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of
    Wordpress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options
    for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could
    point me in the direction of a good platform.
