It started this week with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wondering aloud if Nancy Pelosi was giving her seats on House committees in order to keep her too busy to speak out on other issues. Then AOC moved on to playing a race card against Pelosi, which later culminated with the New York congresswoman insinuating that the House Speaker is trying to get her and her “squad” targeted with death threats.

Overhyped?

A lot of things are overhyped these days, but we’re not sure the Pelosi/AOC catfight is one of them.

If the feud doesn’t end soon, the media will be reporting a whole bunch of Republican “pouncing” and “seizing.”
