House Speaker Pelosi announced today that she will no longer be talking about her feud with the more left-leaning members of the Democratic party.
Her refusal to talk about this comes after she had a feud with Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley.
“I’ve said what I’m going to say in the caucus. That’s where this is appropriate, and I said what I’m going to say in the caucus. They took offense because I addressed, at the request of my members, an offensive tweet that came out of one of the member’s offices that referenced our Blue Dogs and our New Dems essentially as segregationists,” Pelosi stated at the press conference. “Our members took offense at that. I addressed that. How they’re interpreting and carrying it to another place is up to them. But I’m not going to be discussing it any further.“
Then, when a reporter asked her a follow-up question on the matter, she added, “We respect the value of every member of our caucus. The diversity of it all is a wonderful thing. Diversity is our strength. Unity is our power. And we have a big fight, and we’re in the arena, and that’s all I’m going to say on the subject. If you want to waste your question, you can waste your question.“
This feud started off when House Speaker Pelosi told the New York Times that the new and very vocal freshmen from the Democrats had little power in the Congress.
