It’s been a rough few months for Nancy Pelosi and AOC, but things are finally looking up:
Ocasio-Cortez said "the goal is just to open a line of communication" and that "working people have a seat at the table in what's happening in Congress." https://t.co/MNhDtSFlPg

More from CNN:
At a news conference later Friday, Pelosi disputed the idea that there was any “hatchet” that required burying between the two lawmakers — despite times in the past month when they’ve both criticized each other publicly — and described Ocasio-Cortez as “very gracious.”
Ocasio-Cortez told CNN on Thursday that “the goal is just to open a line of communication” and that “working people have a seat at the table in what’s happening in Congress.”
Just look at how open the lines of communication are, you guys:

Why, Nancy’s practically an honorary Squad member now!
Two strong fierce women fighting for us! π

Yeah, that’s totally what we see, too.
"Sorry I called you racist."
"Accepted. Sorry I called you a bats**t crazy lunatic."
"Acce….wait, what?" https://t.co/gCNDryGSlc

This is called a false smile. Notice that the smile doesn't reach either's eyes?
They hate *HATE* each other. https://t.co/r2CAxz4hUP

Can we get a PolitiFact ruling on the sincerity in those smiles?
It's the "Move along, nothing to see here" phase of the downfall of the modern Democratic Party power structure https://t.co/QVuu4A61MC

We’re not saying … we’re just saying.
It doesn’t take a body language expert to see that these two women are not happy to be in each other’s company. And it doesn’t take a genius to see that the photo is perfect fodder for Photoshoppers:
