After all but flat-out accusing Nancy Pelosi of racism, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now trying to walk it back. Well, sort of.

She told CNN’s Manu Raju that she was just speaking in more general terms or whatever:

Who does AOC think she’s fooling at this point?

It makes sense if you remember who AOC is.
