Black Caucus Member Upbraids AOC for Using 'Race Card'

And understandably so, as Democratic Party leaders have repeatedly acknowledged that they can not accomplish their vision without the support of the base, which largely includes groups the freshmen lawmakers represent - people of color, women and working class voters in urban areas. "They're four people - and that's how many votes they got", Pelosi told the newspaper.

The four, all women of color, have tried pressuring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to demand tighter restrictions on the Trump administration's treatment of migrants. The diversity of it all is a wonderful thing. Diversity is our strength; unity is our power.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) just gained approval from an unlikely ally: National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez went further and alleged that Rep. Pelosi didn't respect them because they are women of color.

Trump's defense of Pelosi comes as he himself is feuding with former House Speaker Paul Ryan, a Republican who, according to excerpts from an upcoming book, said Trump didn't know "anything about government".

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory star Denise Nickerson 'dies aged 62'
Her character was known for turning into a big round blueberry after chewing a gum that was not yet ready for consumption. After her acting career: Though Nickerson retired from acting, she didn't forget the role that brought her greatest fame.

Limbaugh's "racism" comment is a reference to Ocasio-Cortez's loaded statement to The Washington Post that captured headlines Wednesday. Chakrabarti last week sent out a tweet comparing centrist Democrats to "new Southern Democrats" who "certainly seem hell bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the 40s", The Hill reported. I think they are headquarters. "So, to even insinuate that I, or any other member of the New Dems, would promote policies that are racist and hateful or ones that would negatively impact communities of color is deeply offensive and couldn't be further from the truth".

Those comments enraged moderates and members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

That betrayal is still intense between liberal Democrats and Rep. Pelosi and now White House Advisor, KellyAnne Conway is getting in on the action by poking fun at the infighting between the women.

. "I'm not anxious about me", said Pressley to the NY Post. I have no idea how personally racist they all were.

A key progressive voice, Rep. Ro Khanna of Calfornia, who is friends with Ocasio-Cortez, told CNN that it is time to move on and rally around the Speaker. And Jay Powell said, 'Well you're right. "And so we're looking forward to having that discussion with her", Jayapal said on Thursday. "Of course it's overblown". At the core of the matter was that Rep. Pelosi disrespected the freshmen representatives, primarily about their massive following on social media. "She isn't going to go with status quo. she questions it". "I said what I'm going to say in the caucus". "The great majority of the caucus membership tends to work together and get along. That's where this is appropriate", she told reporters. "We women of color have faced this for such a long time."Jayapal added, "I don't think the speaker is used to having a group of members who has bigger Twitter followings than her". "It is important that we resolve any kind of conflicts internally and not publicly".

But a few, most notably four freshmen known collectively as "the Squad" - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of MI, and Ayanna Pressley of MA - have not infrequently seemed more concerned with promoting their own agendas, and in polishing up their images for their Twitter followers, than in working inside the system to effect real and lasting change.
