Pelosi’s efforts to placate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her ‘squad’ just backfired big time


-By Rusty Weiss

It would appear House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s efforts to placate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her ‘squad’ backfired big time.

The four freshman congresswomen – consisting of AOC (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) – reignited their feud with the Speaker minutes after she went to bat for them in a ridiculous show against President Trump.

Pelosi and the House Democrats brought forth a resolution on Tuesday condemning President Trump’s comments that if the group of progressive Democrats hates America so much, they are free to leave the country.

“The House, hopefully, has come together, standing as one to denounce the White House’s xenophobic attack on our members, on our people, and to defend the values of America,” Pelosi said during her floor speech on the resolution.

It was a transparent attempt to placate Ocasio-Cortez and her unruly band of lawmakers after the New York congresswoman accused Pelosi of racism herself.

But it didn’t work.

Squad Warns Pelosi

It took all of a few moments for the group of women, predictably, to feel emboldened by their own political power play. They feigned outrage over Trump’s tweets and Pelosi came a-running to the rescue.

Rather than show appreciation, they issued a thinly veiled threat to the Speaker.

In an interview with “CBS This Morning” host Gayle King Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez was asked if they should be meeting face-to-face with Pelosi.

Tlaib interjected essentially saying, ‘she can come to us.’

“She has every right to sit down with her at any moment, any time with any of us,” Tlaib said. “She is Speaker of the House. She can ask for a meeting to sit down with us for clarification.”

The absolute arrogance of the ‘squad’ is mind-blowing.

Threat Issued

The group then had the audacity to issue a threat to Pelosi – You better be aware of what you’re doing next time you single out women of color.

“Acknowledge the fact that we are women of color, so when you do single us out, be aware of that and what you’re doing, especially because some of us are getting death threats,” Tlaib warned. “Some of us are being singled out because of our backgrounds, because of our experiences and so forth.”

Actually, you’re being singled out because you’re a group of radical left-wing, anti-American nuts that are dragging your party off a cliff and ensuring Trump’s re-election in 2020.

And rather than graciously accepting Pelosi’s help in battling the President, they are continuing to portray her as a racist who singles out minority members of Congress, something one Democrat lawmaker described as “ignorance beyond belief.”
