Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is livid with the recent social media antics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her flashy sidekicks. “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world.” To Pelosi, “these people” means some very controversial freshmen in Congress.
Ocasio-Cortez, she begins, is a “wonderful member of Congress.” But, she continued, “This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in those districts.”
Other than Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan Muslim Rashida Tlaib is rumored to have ties with foreign terrorists, through her close connections at the Council of American Islamic Relations.
Then there’s Minnesota Muslim Ilhan Omar. She’s been in hot water ever since she was elected, over campaign finance violations and tax irregularities. Omar allegedly fudged her taxes to cover up the fact she was married with two different men at the same time, one of whom is allegedly her brother. That was done to break immigration laws and now there may be enough evidence for her to be deported over it.
Another of AOC’s cohorts is Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. Just the other day, she called the Declaration of Independence “racist” because the Founding Fathers “did not condemn slavery, protect the rights of women or include Native Americans.”
The whole problem with these unruly youngsters, Pelosi told the New York Times, is that they think having followers on Twitter is the same as having real power. “They’re four people and that’s how many votes they’ve got.”
Back in April she made a similar point. “While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House.”
The radical “gang of four” threw a temper tantrum when Pelosi caved in to Republicans and scratched all the Democrat restrictions out of the border protection funding bill, allowing it to pass. They jointly issued a venomous statement. “These radicalized, criminal agencies are destroying families and killing innocent children.”
Pelosi told the Times, that’s it, she’s had enough of their socialist-progressive grandstanding. “If the left doesn’t think I’m left enough, so be it.”

“As I say to these people, come to my basement. I have these signs about single-payer from 30 years ago. I understand what they’re saying. But we have a responsibility to get something done, which is different from advocacy. We have to have a solution, not just a Twitter fight.”
When it comes to impeachment, another hot button with the far-left progressives, Pelosi explains it’s simply not going to happen.
“You can’t impeach everybody. People wanted Reagan impeached but that didn’t happen. O.K., they impeached Clinton for something so ridiculous — getting impeached for doing a dumb thing as a guy. Then they wanted to impeach Obama.”
