    The public spat between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, got a lot nastier on Wednesday, with the freshman congresswoman suggesting that the speaker is "singling out" her and her colleagues based on their race.

    Pelosi has worked to keep the Democratic caucus in line, specifically four newly-elected outspoken progressives: Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass..

    However, a feud between Pelosi and the quartet escalated after Congress passed a border funding bill that the four young Democrats opposed. Pelosi discussed the bill, and those in her party who oppose it, in an interview last weekend. She told the New York Times: "All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got."

      Hoist on their own petard. With luck, the POTUS candidates could all do each other in and Trump could oppose Omar Ilhan.

        Put them in a Coliseum style death match. The winner gets to battle it out with a rabid dog.

          Unfortunately Pelosi understands that these idiots are a special level of idiot that will cost the dems big votes in national elections. I hope she is unsuccessful in her attempt to corral them.

            A rare moment of schism amongst those who generally very loyal to the narrative.

            Shows us just how unhinged AOC really is....

              That is especially delicious, watching the Dem playbook being used against one another.

              "public whatever"? I would expect someone as experienced as Pelosi to have a better grasp of words in framing things, as phrasing like this shows she may not have an understanding of the next generation's means and methods. Trump already showed the political world how to use Twitter effectively. My point being I think the Dem leader is showing her age. That said, I hope this continues endlessly - both her fumbling to frame them, and the freshman crying 'race' or other Dem calling cards.

                I remember when party leaders used to make deals in smoked filled rooms with the opposing party in order to push legislation through. Politics was the art of compromise. You gave up something to get something. I remember when majority and minority leaders would strong arm their members into keeping their mouths shut and getting in line to support a bill to get it through Congress. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knows nothing about politics and the art of compromise. She is not a politician. She's a spoiled whiny little brat who needs a kick in the yoga pants.

                And what if Trump had opposition leaders like Senate majority leader Lyndon Johnson and House majority leader Sam Rayburn? Real politicians. You don't think some dealing would be going on and some things getting done? Nancy Pelosi, and AOC are worthless idiots who need to get out of the way. I don't care that Chuck Shumer did make a perfect score on his SAT test. He's no good too.

                  LOL. This might get interesting. The far left using identity politics against their own folk.

                    Hooray, the old Dems have knots.
                    AOC stirred not shaken.

                      I've said this many times...This DNC Convention will be one to watch.

                      If you have Kids and Grandkids try to get them interested. You may not see something like this for DECADES. I predict a "Split Convention" and the "Ole Back Room Dealing". You could see people walking out or even fights.

                      This could even be the end of the "TWO PARTY" system. I don't see the DNC holding it together.

                      I was "wrong-way worrying" = I feared that the Democrats would succeed at so fixing elections that we'd get a one party system. Now this!! Honest revelations make great signposts.

                            This is not right. These dems are mistreating the new women of color that were just elected. Old white women should not be in charge.

                              Ive said it since the beginning of trump. Trump will be the end of the democratic party as we know it. They've not got a clue how to deal with him
