Did Pelosi Throw Shade at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

Without exactly mentioning anyone by name, it appeared that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently mocked freshman Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her reliance on Twitter for support while neglecting the work she should be doing  to pass the Democratic agenda into laws.

The New York Democrat, who has nearly 4 million followers on Twitter, has used the platform to rally the online support for her radical proposals like the Green New Deal, though none of the support translated into actual legislative victories.

Pelosi was asked during a USA Today interview published on April 8, about her struggles of running a House caucus while freshmen Democrats such as Ocasio-Cortez are pushing the party further to the left and fighting over more symbolic gestures rather than actually implementing Democratic policies.

Pelosi poignantly replied, “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,” which many took as a not so subtle dig at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Not the First Time Pelosi Was Dismissive of Ocasio-Cortez

According to Fox News, this is not the first time that the top House Democrat has thrown some shade at AOC. Earlier this year, the House Speaker somewhat dismissed the Green New Deal during an interview with Politico.

“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,” Pelosi said. “The green dream, or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?”

Ocasio-Cortez was reportedly left out of the Pelosi-approved Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, though some reports suggest the New York Democrat voluntarily decided not to join the committee where the legislation to combat climate change will actually be worked out.

So, what if anything does this mean for the chances for Democrats in the 2020 election? It is indicative of a much fractionalized Democratic Party that continues to do what they do best – eat their own. Which means that all President Trump really needs to do is just sit back, enjoy the show, and cruise into an easy victory for another four years of making America great.
