Nancy Pelosi is yet again going after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
She told USA Today that having large numbers of Twitter followers isn’t as important as having large numbers of votes.
“While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House,” @SpeakerPelosi told me. https://t.co/RAY26MNOjC https://t.co/FOIGG9zXtA

She’s right, but she let this kind of thing fester by doing things like appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone with Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.

Pelosi is calling out the freshman Congresswoman with everything but her name.
Not subtle at all.

This is not the first time Pelosi has had words for Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.
After she introduced her pipe dream, also known as the Green New Deal, Pelosi openly mocked it.

And this quote comes after a weekend in which a certain former president called his party out for being too rigid and creating a “circular firing squad.”
You realize this is YOUR fault: Barack Obama is now rebuking the party he drove off the Left cliff https://t.co/wTv9XtHIyU

The frustration from Democrat leadership over Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and her Leftist clique is very apparent.
This growing divide is going to be very interesting to keep an eye on heading into the 2020 election.
