As Twitchy told you last night, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez not-so-subtly accused Nancy Pelosi of racism (and sexism):
BIG: The Pelosi-Squad feud enters a new phase as race now becomes a factor.
AOC ups the ante: “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.” https://t.co/yH6eSfl36a

We’re sure Nancy doesn’t regret indulging AOC’s squad at all today. And why should she? After all, now she’s part of a very special club. A club with which Rep. Dan Crenshaw and other Republicans are very familiar:
Madam Speaker, welcome to the true nature of identity politics – where you’re accused of being racist for no reason at all, and where intellectually lazy insults are used against you as a way to replace substantive debate of your argument or idea. https://t.co/3z6PyPQoR1

Isn’t this fun?

Pelosi spent years laying the groundwork for this. And now she’s reaping what she sowed.
Now she's playing the sexism and racism card against Pelosi because that's the only way she knows how to argue.
But Pelosi deserves this after spending half the year defending the extremism and bigotry from those 3 freshmen. https://t.co/fT1R9iZsH0

The identity politics game should have stopped with Omar getting a proper rebuke from the House when it had a chance. Now it’s a free-for-all. Pelosi helped create this Monster.
