Over the past two days, Nancy Pelosi has been taking swipes at embattled freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Ocasio-Cortez has apparently been feeling the heat of criticism and has quit facebook and declared social media a “public health risk.”
American Mirror reported that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is obviously sick and tired of claims that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the leader of the Democratic Party.
While speaking to an audience on Monday at the London School of Economics and Political Science, the California Democrat said she has talked to ultra-progressive lawmakers like Ocasio-Cortez about the importance of appealing to voters in centrist districts who do not support socialist measures such as the Green new Deal and Medicare for All.
“This is about winning. When we have to go into the districts we have to win, we have to cull that to what we have in common with those people,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi then explained that Ocasio-Cortez’s district in New York is so liberal that a glass of water with “Democrat” next to it could win an election there.
“This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to it in those districts. But that’s not where we have to win elections,” Pelosi added, arguing in favor of supporting moderate Democrats who can win in Republican-held districts.
This is the third time in less than a week that Pelosi has savaged Ocasio-Cortez.
