Nancy Pelosi says she’s not ‘dismissing’ AOC despite rumors

Despite rumors to the contrary, Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just dismissed the idea that she disrespects progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) in an interview with Leslie Stahl of 60 Minutes on Sunday.

Stahl questioned Pelosi about Cortez’s complaints that House leadership fails to groom younger up-and-coming House members for leadership positions. Stahl asked, “Why does AOC complain that you have not been grooming younger people for leadership?”

Pelosi, with a pinched and unsmiling face, unwillingly and dismissively shot back, “I don’t know. You’ll have to ask her … because we are.”

When Stahl pointed out that Pelosi’s answer was sharp and dismissive, Pelosi denied it. She said, “I’m not dismissing her. I respect her.

The tension between Pelosi and AOC and “the squad” has been apparent since they were seated in 2019. Pelosi has tried to keep the progressive squad in check as she tries to keep the less radical side of the party happy.

Pelosi seemed to be annoyed at the amount of attention AOC gets as she explained to Stahl that AOC is effective, but other Democrats are also worthy of notice. Pelosi said, ” I think she’s very effective, as are … many other members of our caucus that the press doesn’t pay attention to. But they are there, and they are building support for what comes next (impeachment).”

AOC, unhappy with the current leadership of the Democrat party, told The Intercept in December: “We need new leadership in the Democratic Party.” Rumors — and some evidence — of infighting between House Democrats and the Progressive Caucus have been building since AOC’s election in 2018, and only continue to grow.

Despite her denials, it is obvious that Pelosi is annoyed with AOC and her distruptive colleagues in the clip below. Watch:

  1. All we can hope is that they all keep fighting against each other and soon the far left will come out with their matches and and fire bombs and take care of Pelosi themselves.

    1. Yeah…One old cat that can’t get out of the litter box and the other a delusional kitten overdosed on cat nip and Unicorn milk…

      1. I am a cat volunteer rescuer — and I love you cat fight description. It fits — it totally fits. norma

      2. Perfect way to describe them except for one thing. Cat’s have working brains. Pisslosi and AOC are both brainless.

  2. Nancy Pelosi and AOC are both threats to our government. Most of what they say and do and not in the best interests of America or Americans. Dems cheated so bad no one can do if their votes represent any live and breathing Americans…the cheating was that bad. Any of the BS media rhetoric cannot be taken as real due to them fabricating lies and fake news as fast as they can.

    1. When she is up once again for re election, unless she stands before a firing squad first, We the People need to SWAP Out voting machine and carefully count every legal Ballot by hand so she can’t cheat again and Californians will be able to get her out of the House! Then we can let California join the United States again because they finally took out their trash instead of sending it to D.C.

  3. They’re all going to hang themselves with their own mouths .Justice will be served.In my lifetime I have seen God work miracles .

  4. It’s fine with me if they take each other out. We don’t need either of them as they are both too radical.

  5. I always THOUGHT that running the GOVT for the U.S.A. was the Objective, NOT being “NICE” (LOOK that word up in an 1828 Websters Dictionary) and making people HAPPY! This just one of the many reasons why NO woman belongs in Congress or senate or in Legislature or in or on any Judgeship, because they think w/their “EMOTIONS” and EMOTIONS have nothing to do w/the LAW or in the rule of law! Titus 2:5/1 Tim 2:12/Proverbs 31:3 KJV Also SEE Exodus 18:20-21 KJV The woman started this mess when she was deceived in the garden and now she will completely destroy this nation and beyond! Genesis 2:18 KJV

      1. Yes I will have to admit that it would bother me to send a women to death for her treason but Nancy is no woman and certainly not a lady so I could live with myself feeding her to the lions and she could have avoided that for herself But she didn’t have that on her agenda and the lions get hungry!

  6. Can you believe the insanity in our country? The constant bickering and division in our gov. is a mirror reflection of the country as a whole. That also mirrors all of us as individually. We have become so distanced from our God given sense of morality through our constant attention and focus on all that is wrong, debase and evil, that it’s showing up in our daily actions. We must stop looking outside of ourselves for the cause of our pain and suffering. It comes from within.

  7. We must come together as a whole accross the globe and seek to be of service to others instead of being in service to self. Service to others, not for any rewards, but because iot comes back to us in kind, then we will no longer need things outside ourselves to gain happiness or prosperity, for God promised it to us when we were created. It is inherent within us.
    This is the only way this will end.

  8. Peloci isn’t the president, she’s speaker of the house and she has to abide by rules just like everyone else, if she doesn’t like it, just leave!

  9. Why block me? What are you afraid of? Why censor the truth? Are you afraid of the truth? Does the truth hurt your little feelings? If so, you are very shallow and should knit socks for a living and leave the rest of us alone. How does it feel to be so mentally weak that you block others views just because they disagree and ruffle your feathers. I bet you kids get a trophy for just showing up. I pray every day that they lock up all of those that would stand in the way of everybody’s Constitutional rights. How pathetic are those that can’t get their way so they attack those that don’t share the same point of view. It’s time to take them out back by the wood shed so to speak. In the beginning of this great country, they would have tarred and feathered any politicians that did what the Democrats are doing today a run them out of town!

    1. To be honest, in the beginning of this Country Politicians didn’t act this way. They were trying to build this great Country and their lives Depended on it. Today our Politicians have sold the U.S. out along with themselves so now they are trying to destroy our Country and their lives depend on it.


  11. I look at Pelosi, AOC, Tlaib, Omar, Pressley and the majority of the Democrats in the Houss of Reprobates and DC Swamp Senate, and think to myself “Why, Oh Why, didn’t the Founders place higher standards for holding office?”
