WATCH: Pelosi claps back at AOC over ‘women of color’ gripe…

This morning Nancy Pelosi held a press conference and was asked about AOC’s recent claim that Pelosi is targeting her and the other freshmen (Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley) because they are ‘women of color’:

Pelosi explained that she was responding to a tweet – the one we told you about from AOC’s chief of staff – that essentially accused the Blue Dog Democrats of being like the segregationists. Below is the text of the tweet from Saikat Chakrabarti:

They certainly seem hell bent to do black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the 40s.

Pelosi explained the tweet was offensive to her members and they wanted her to address it, so she did. She said that AOC and her squad members can interpret however they wish, but she wasn’t going to address it anymore.



The complaint from AOC came in an article from the Washington Post (via Hotair):

But “the Squad” — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) — is convinced it is Pelosi who is being the bully.

The four are struggling with the speaker’s moves to isolate them in recent weeks, according to interviews with the lawmakers, congressional aides and allies. Pelosi has made at least half a dozen remarks dismissing the group or their far-left proposals on the environment and health care. More recently she scorned their lonely opposition to the party’s emergency border bill last month.

And she defended those comments Wednesday, saying, “I have no regrets about anything. Regrets is not what I do,” doubling down on her claim that the group has little power in the House.

“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” Ocasio-Cortez told The Washington Post. “But the persistent singling out . . . it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful . . . the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”

CNN’s Manu Raju asked AOC this morning about her comments in the Washington Post:

So Pelosi is singling out women of color, but she has no racial animus and is not a racist? Um, is anyone else confused by this?

Ed Morrissey says this is AOC’s way of trying to have her cake and eat it too. I think he’s right, because othewise this makes no sense.

  1. No confusion when those nit wits are involved, they so deserve each other. Pelosi got what she wanted , enjoy you loon !

          1. I loved that song when I was a kid. Just recently I realized that it describes depressive psychosis.

  2. Sounds like Pelosi is getting a dose of what it’s like to be a Republican and told every little thing you do is racist. Good. I hope the Three Amigas destroy the Demwits and cause a splinter off into their own Leftist for Nitwits Party.

  3. So Pelosi is singling out women of color, but she has no racial animus and is not a racist? Um, is anyone else confused by this?

    Don’t you know that Democrats can NEVER EVER be racists? It’s just impossible! Sure they can have racist tendencies, policies and actions, but they are NEVER racists! Trust the leftist media and academia on this!

  4. mee-owwww
    ffffttt….fffttt
    mee-owwww

    I love a good cat fight.
    Wait…am I allowed to use that term?
    Don’t care — using it anyway.

  5. I love it. Finally, the tactics the Democrats use on their opponents has been weaponized against them. It will destroy their entire Party from within. Live by racial politics and division and die by it. I really hope this keeps up, because if the four stooges are in charge of the Democrat Messaging, we won’t see another Democrat occupy the White House in my life time.

  6. In the mind of the bartender, she’s never wrong, and if you call out her stupidity it’s only because of sexism or racism. Period. Well, the Dems created this monster of identity politics, let them be destroyed by it.

    I’ll have some popcorn and watch.

  7. This is all going to come down to which side the money people are on because that will be the side which wins in the end. In the meantime it will just get worse because the AOCs don’t know when to let go.

    1. A few of their mega donors are having legal troubles with child trafficking and other reasons, but I do know the founder of BET is not happy with how far left the democrat party has become. I don’t understand that reasoning, because didn’t he support Obama? I believe this is behind the scenes of Obama/Soros removing blue dogs and putting in the radicals they’ve always wanted.

  8. I find this hilarious…the infighting has already started over who will get the power…

    1. Pelosi’s party has created an intersectional victim monster that they cannot control.

    2. Where is my bookie? I’m betting on Nan. With all her experience even being as flighty as she is these days the old battle ax knows how to bury bodies deep.

  9. AOC is an embarrassment to bartenders, to Boston University, to women everywhere, and really to the entire human race in general.

  10. Pelosi has made at least half a dozen remarks dismissing the group or their far-left proposals on the environment and health care. More recently she scorned their lonely opposition to the party’s emergency border bill last month.

    But no, it’s because you’re non-white chicks. Totally.

    Now Nance et al knows how Republicans and Conservatives feel all the time.

  11. She’s singling out 4 arrogant twits. (this is the last – and only – time I defend Pelosi.)

  12. OMG how I love seeing Piglosi mud wrestling with her radical newbies. Now even she is a racist. Haha Take that San Fran Nan.

  13. ………”women of color”
    AOC, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley aren’t African-Americans. Is Black Lives Matter going to jump in and protest “what about us?”

  14. Hahahaha. Now we need to categorize the levels of racism amongst democrats!
    Pelosi at bottom, Cortez at top, Ohmar as Klan leader.
    They are eating themselves alive fighting to lose the next election.

  15. It’s funny how these limousine libs like Pelosi take part in their own destruction. If you look up a MN legislator name Phyllis Kahn, Pelosi is on a similar road to Kahn. Kahn happily monopolized a MN House seat for 45 YEARS, happily importing Somali Democrats into her district to monopolize her power even more. Well at some point, it became too much, and she was beaten in a primary by a newcomer named Ihlan Omar.

  16. I love the fact Nancy and the dems are getting a dose of their own medicine. They’ve screamed everyone, except themselves, were racists. You have to love that we are watching the democrat party starting to come apart at the seams. What is happening to them is a doing of their own making. Getting warm and cozy with radicals has led them to this point.

  17. The four of them should form their own political party. They make themselves the centre of attention and then complain about the “concentration of attention” on them. AOC is worse than Obama.
