Ocasio-Cortez deflects when asked if she’ll support Pelosi’s attempt at another term as Speaker

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced on Sunday that she intends to run for Speaker once again if Democrats retain the House majority in the November election.

The unofficial leader of the progressive movement within the House, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), responded to the news by refusing to explicitly back Pelosi for Speaker again — signaling that Pelosi may be facing an uphill battle for control of the House.

Though Pelosi has been attacked by the GOP for her unrelenting opposition to Trump and commitment to obstructing GOP legislation during her tenure as speaker, Pelosi faces a growing contingent of legislators that believe that she isn’t far-left enough.

When directly asked about whether she would support Pelosi’s intention of running for a second term as Speaker, Ocasio-Cortez said she would only support Pelosi if she was the “most progressive” candidate running for the seat.

“I believe that we have to see those races as they come, see what candidates are there,” Ocasio-C0rtez hedged. “I am committed to making sure that we have the most progressive candidate there.”

“But if Speaker Pelosi is that most progressive candidate, then I will be supporting her,” Ocasio-Cortez admitted.

Pelosi and the freshman Congresswoman have been quietly at odds since the 2018 election, and though they’ve remained cordial, Ocasio-Cortez has made it clear on multiple occasions that Pelosi is too committed to the establishment to satisfy Hosue progressives.

      1. And may they get sick from it, vomit in their sleep, and drown in it. I’d call that “just desserts”.

  1. Pelosi has done nothing but lie and hold back congress and spend americans tax money going after trump for four years she only cares about Pelosi. .Aoc is an radical islamic muslim hates america and pushing rioters in the streets . and needs sent from this country with trader omar..

    1. Alan, you are so right!! Pelosi and AOC need to be removed from all politics and put out to pasture, AOC back to the country she came from because it is plain to see she hates America and it’s people, Pelosi needs to be sent into rehab for drunkenness and then to the old folks home!!

    2. could not have said better
      Omar should have her Citizenship striped from her and OAC as well
      all three of them are : no word to describe them

    3. You said it all. If not Trump needs to fire her after Wray n Barr. Sick of these corrupt officials in office that aren’t working for American ppl but themselves only.

  2. I think they both should be given double barrel shotguns at 6 feet apart 12 gauge
    00 buck turn and fire on command

  3. There are a lot of congress that needs to be replaced, voted out, and hidden, Pelosi and Schmuer being top on list.

  4. Oooo … so now ALEXANDREA (don’t call me AOC) is giving PEWLOSI the cold shoulder. I remember about 5-6 weeks ago she visited with Big CHUCKY SCHUMER and didn’t pay any respects to Madam Speaker. Well now, maybe this will turn out to be a little PRE ELECTION DAY squabble between these two — since they’re both so damn childish, I figure they could settle it with a CATFIGHT ! At the end, I want AOC’s (sorry) Top to be on the ground, but I want NANC to stay fully clothed — we DON’T WANT to see THAT ! YUCK ….

    While the Democraps employ infighting, the REPUBLICAN PARTY will step forward and claim all the seats on 11/03 …. Now THAT would be worth reporting, huh CNN ???

  5. I don’t like rather one. We need some one from One who will work with both party’s. Not some one who hates our president and never works on anything to get him out. They need to work for the people and who we vote for.

  6. The whole stinking comidemo house needs a total cleansing, fumigated, disinfected, and new air vents. Then new Representatives that have American people as their priority, not a political party. Much the same with the Senate, all with 8yr term limits. PERIOD!!

  7. When referring to the Party of Overgrown Children the word progressive should always be in quotation marks. (“progressive”)

  8. Hopefully both of these Evil people will be voted Out of Office!!! Let’s Drain The Swamp America, Vote Straight GOP (Except Rinos) November 3, 2020!!!!

  9. This Election is far more different from any other in America’s History!! One party is wanting to erase our accomplishments, sacrifices, Constitutional Rights and Freedom, Completely doing away with what has made most every person and country on earth want to come to America!!! We Are Not Perfect, But We True Americans strive to remain The Greatest Nation on Earth and I implore you, Democrats , Republicans & Independants , put aside political differences and hatred for Biden or Trump and vote for AMERICA , Our Freedom & Rights!! God Bless America!!

  10. Agree with all above posts! AOC is dumber than a brick! But—- she WILL try to run for the speakership if she wins her election! Piglosi can’t bully everyone for much longer! She bullied her way in last time, even though many demonrats did NOT want her! They are both a disgrace to our country! AOC, Omar, Tlaib, Pressley and others of their ilk do NOT belong in our government! They need to be GONE! Vote Red across the ballot, get them OUT!!!! MAGA. KAG!!!! Also, if Biden steals this election, he WILL nominate Obama to the Supreme Court! Just a heads up!

  11. Progress is a good word but sometimes progress for some means setback for others. Moral Regression is often in the revised definition of progression.
