Op-Ed: Nancy Pelosi trying to have it both ways on Ocasio-Cortez [Video]
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following opinion editorial written by Philip Klein and published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is trying to have it both ways when it comes to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and her band of freshman socialists, celebrating or dismissing them, depending on the audience.
In an interview airing on “60 Minutes” Sunday night, Pelosi drew headlines for downplaying the influence of Ocasio-Cortez and her House allies. Asked about how she could hold the House together when the Democratic caucus is split between socialists and centrists, Pelosi said of Ocasio-Cortez’s group, “That’s like five people.”
Can the Speaker of the House unify the Democratic party while getting pushback from the left and self-described democratic socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? https://t.co/f4VUYTYIdw pic.twitter.com/a9wOobPj5g

The article goes on to state the following:
Yet at other times, Pelosi has been trying to exploit the enthusiasm of the young group of freshman members, particularly when targeting a younger, more liberal audience. She emerged as a defender of anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar, even before the most recent controversy over Sept. 11. She had to, because she knows the power that the resurgent Left wields within her caucus.
And she also posed on the cover of Rolling Stone with Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, and another freshman liberal Jahana Hayes, D-Conn, and celebrated the cover on Twitter.
