Speaker of The House, Nancy Pelosi blasted multiple people in her new biography scheduled for release on the 20th of April, according to The Daily Wire.
It’s reported that to get the book finished, Pelosi met with Susan Page, USA Today’s Washington Burea Chief on 10 separate occasions.
Pelosi criticized several members of her political party.
Among those that were placed in the hot seat were Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and even Barrack Obama.
In regards to AOC Pelosi stated, “You’re not a one-person show.”
“This is the Congress of the United States.”
At another meeting with page, Pelosi brings up former President Barrack Obama and proceeds to lambast him concerning the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.
Pelosi reprimanded Obama for issues that surfaced in order to achieve the number of votes necessary to pass the legislation.
Pelosi also remarked that Obama didn’t deserve the full credit for getting the bill through Congress.
“Why are we having a problem with Illinois?” Pelosi questioned.
Nancy Pelosi and AOC didn’t get off on the right foot from the start.
Before AOC was even deemed as the Representative of New York it seemed that the two were destined to be at each other’s throats.
It is reported that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s initial emergence in Washington D.C. was an attendee at an anti-Pelosi protest.
At the time AOC associated herself with the “Sunrise Movement,” as she did not just attend but addressed a protest just outside of Nancy Pelosi’s office.
Protesters during the even held signs that read, “Green New Deal” and demanded “Green Jobs for All.
It is reported that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shook hand with protesters and shelled out high-fives at the time.
“I do think that we need new leadership in the Democratic Party,” Ocasio-Cortez stated in an interview.
AOC has made remarks concerning the last of “grooming” going on regarding leadership for the next generation of Democrats.
“Whenever there is a challenge, it kind of collapses, and that, I think, is the result of just many years of power being concentrated in leadership with lack of real grooming of next generation of leader,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
From The Daily Wire:
The event marked Ocasio-Cortez’s first visit to the soon-to-be Speaker’s office, and leftists were pretty miffed that she introduced herself to her Democratic colleagues not by embracing inter-party collegiality, but by openly disagreeing with her party’s long-time leadership.
Pelosi has taken time to wrangle AOC and her rogue colleagues, and all members of the Squad voted to re-elect Pelosi as speaker of the House in January. Ocasio-Cortez decided to back Pelosi despite calling on progressives to formulate a plan to oust the aging speaker and her Senate counterpart, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), several weeks prior to the vote for Pelosi.
