Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three other freshman Democrats was a “statement of fact.”
It all started over the weekend when Pelosi took issue with the socialists in the House, specifically Reps Omar, Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and Pressley, saying that they lack power and following in the Democratic Party saying “They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”
Their followings are so strong in fact, that the four have started to act as if they are the ones who run the Democrat Party and the House of Representatives in 2019.
Earlier today, in an interview with The New York Times the Speaker scoffed at the “Twitter World” of the representatives and the power they think they wield.
I asked Pelosi whether, after being the subject of so many you-go-girl memes for literally clapping back at Trump, it was jarring to get a bad headline like the one in HuffPost that day — “What The Hell Is Nancy Pelosi Doing?”
Pelosi feels that the four made themselves irrelevant to the process by voting against “our bill,” as she put it, which she felt was the strongest one she could get.
“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” she said of the young representatives.
“But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got,” she said in the interview.
As you might expect this did not sit well with any of them, especially Representative Ilhan Omar, who directly challenged Speaker Pelosi’s power and position.
“Patetico! You know they’re just salty about WHO is wielding the power to shift “public sentiment” these days, sis. Sorry not sorry” Omar tweeted.
You know they’re just salty about WHO is wielding the power to shift “public sentiment” these days, sis.
Sorry not sorry. https://t.co/GYiiP1YJT1
Basically Omar is saying that she and Rep’s Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and Pressley are in charge of the House and the party now.
This is a direct challenge to Speaker Pelosi, one which she will be unlikely, or unwilling to ignore.
After all Nancy Pelosi did not become Speaker of the House by letting freshman representatives run all over her.
Expect the attack to come from behind, a shiv in the back, when they least expect it.
Grab some popcorn, this should be fun to watch!

Nancy Pelosi accuses Trump admin of using citizenship census question to 'Make America White Again'
This article was sourced from Foxnews
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, slammed the Trump adminisration for its ongoing efforts to include a citizenship question in the 2020 U.S. Census, suggesting there's a racial component by invoking President Trump's 2016 campaign motto.
During Monday's press conference on election security, Pelosi called President Trump's battle over the census "disgraceful," pointing to his Supreme Court setback that rejected the administration's argument for having a question about citizenship in the census.
“This is about keeping -- –you know, 'Make America'- his hat? Make America White Again,” she continued. “They want to make sure that people -- –certain people are counted. It’s really disgraceful and it’s not what our Founders had in mind.”
She later continued, "What is America? America is our people, the beautiful diversity of America and they denigrate newcomers to our country. They dishonor the Constitution, they degrade the environment, the land, they denigrate the diversity that is the beauty of the mix of America, and they undermine our values as a country- who we are as a country."
The Department of Justice announced on Sunday that it was seeking a new legal time to continue to fight the pushback against the citizenship question in the courts. Attorney General William Barr told reporters the DOJ will reveal "in the next day or two" how they will proceed.

Is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., mishandling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and her fellow freshman cohorts?
Fox News' Jesse Watters said Pelosi is approaching the situation in the wrong manner, comparing it to former House Speaker John Boehner's handling of the Tea Party.
"She has four bomb throwers. He had dozens of Tea Party members starting in 2010. He had them for many, many years. It made his life hell over spending and the debt ceiling. And he did his best to keep the beef behind closed doors, right," Watters said Monday on "The Five."
"Nancy seems to keep having these public spats and she's only got four little bomb throwers and it has only been four months. And she's already had fights about anti-Semitism, impeachment, progressivism and now the border funding thing... the Green New Deal."
“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi said of Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., making light of their presence on social media.
Watters advised Pelosi to ignore the four congresswomen and to not to underestimate their social media influence.
"She would just be much better served if she would let her whip team handle the drama and ignore them and now she's nicknamed them 'the squad.' She's elevating them in the media and I think this is wrong," Watters said.
"You shouldn't diminish the power of social media. She doesn't dial for dollars. [Ocasio-Cortez] can leverage that platform, very powerful and Nancy doesn't understand that and I think she should soon."
This article was sourced from InfoWarsHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi jumped the shark on Monday, claiming Trump supporters wear MAGA hats to “Make America White Again.
“They want to make sure that people, certain people, are counted. It’s really disgraceful. And it’s not what our founders had in mind.”
“What they want to do is put a chilling effect so certain populations will not answer the form,” she added, meaning non-citizens ie illegal aliens.
Those certain people are U.S. citizens, plain and simple.
It’s now abundantly clear this isn’t about race or “social justice” to the left. It’s about consolidating their power by handing over America’s sovereignty to foreigners dependent on the government.
Trump just said in impromptu news conference that he needs citizenship data for Congressional districting. So now we know. This is effort to deny political representation to non citizens.
