Nancy Pelosi got asked one question that sent her running for her life
Nancy Pelosi is fighting for political survival.
The Speaker of the House is involved in a feud that could end her career.
And then Nancy Pelosi got asked one question that sent her running for her life.
Nancy Pelosi faced so-called “reporters” at her weekly press conference.
Even the Democrat activists in the press had to ask her about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling her a racist.
Pelosi panicked and wouldn’t answer the question or take any more questions on the subject.
“I said what I’m going to say in the caucus. That’s where this is appropriate,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference Thursday, shutting down additional follow-up attempts by a reporter.
Pelosi suggested that Ocasio-Cortez and the other freshman progressive women in her so-called “squad” may be upset that the speaker chided members — and their staff — in a private caucus meeting Wednesday.
“They took offense because I addressed, at the request of my members, an offensive tweet that came out of one of the member’s offices that referenced our Blue Dogs and our New Dems essentially as segregationists,” Pelosi said, referencing a now-deleted tweet by Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff.
“How they’re interpreting and carrying it to another place is up to them,” Pelosi added. “But I’m not going to be discussing it any further.”
This is the biggest threat to Pelosi’s power in her career.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez represents the future of the Democrat Party.
If Democrats have a bad 2020 election then the knives will be out for Pelosi.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be leading the charge to force Pelosi out of leadership.
