Nancy Pelosi dismisses Socialist takeover of Democrat party “it’s like five people”
Nancy Pelosi took another veiled strike at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the new extreme radicals in the House yesterday on 60 minutes. In an interview with Leslie Stahl the Speaker discussed Socialism creeping into the party and her ability to control it. She dismissed the radicals as “it’s like five people.
“[Y]ou are contending with a group in Congress. Over here on the left flank are these self-described socialists — on the right, these moderates. And you yourself said that you’re the only one who can unify everybody. And the question is, can you?” Stahl asked Pelosi.
“By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center,” Pelosi stated. “That we have to go down the mainstream.”
“It looks as if it’s fractured,” Stahl stated.
She added, “You have these wings – [Ocasio-Cortez], and her group on one side — ”
“That’s like five people,” Pelosi replied.
Pelosi was also questioned about her ineffectiveness in the first 100 days and brushed the question aside instead pointing out the leadership she has provided in bringing forth progressive ideas such as a gun bill and raising the dreamers issue.
It is clear Pelosi is bothered by AOC and her Socialistic popularity. She has either brushed aside of forgotten the name of the Green New Deal on several occasions calling it the Green Dream.
The fact of the matter is it doesn’t matter if the Ocasio-Cortez lunatic fringe is like five people the rest of the party including 2020 Presidential candidates are following her off the cliff and it is going to be fun to watch.
