Democrats Turn on “Fraud” AOC after Jab at Pelosi


House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is having a difficult time. Earlier this week, the congresswoman rasied eyebrows after targeting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. According to Ocasio-Cortez, Pelosi’s censure of the way certain House caucus members handle themselves has racist undertones.

The battle between Ocasio-Cortez and Pelosi has prompted other Democrats to take sides. Unfortunately for the congresswoman, Democrats seem to be lining up behind Pelosi. Earlier today, certain Democrats voiced their concerns with AOC and the optics don’t look good at all.

Why Democrats are Backing Pelosi

Many Democrats have countered the claim that Nancy Pelosi is racist or otherwise antagonistic towards “women of color,” as Ocasio-Cortez alleged. Moreover, various sources slammed the congresswoman, calling her a “fraud” whose comments are “inappropriate.”

One source even went as far as to brand Ocasio-Cortez as a “nobody” despite her online following and backing from certain progressives.

“She is a nobody. She is a freshman member of Congress with no power, she is not worth the speaker’s brainpower. […] In this building, it is about how many others you can bring along to your side. She maybe has two members—sometimes four.”
