Today Pelosi was again asked about AOC and the House Dem socialists:
Asked in London about @AOC wing of party, Pelosi notes Dems didn’t win majority bc of “districts like mine or Alexandria’s.” She calls AOC “wonderful” but said the 43 districts they won “were right down the middle … I share those values but we must win .. This is about winning”

In other words, Pelosi believes that catering to the AOC wing of Dems would be costly to the party. Here’s what the House Speaker based that on and how she described it:
Pelosi says that in safe districts like that of @AOC , a glass of water with a letter "D" next to it would win election

Nancy Pelosi says Democrats won the House because of ‘mainstream, hold the centre victories’. Adds a ‘glass of water with a D next to its name’ would have won in her own or @AOC’s districts.

AOC’s fans and others aren’t liking what Pelosi said one bit. Pass the popcorn!
