Full title: Pelosi responds to AOC slam, says caucus has her back for condemning chief of staffs offensive tweet
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stood her ground Thursday in response to New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claiming the speaker has been disrespectful to several minority lawmakers, saying she has the backing of her caucus and defending her handling of the rabble-rousing freshman 'squad' that Ocasio-Cortez leads.
Notably, Pelosi all but confirmed that a warning she delivered to rank-and-file lawmakers a day earlier about using social media for attacks on fellow Democrats was prompted by Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff.
Asked about her ongoing spat with the New York lawmaker, Pelosi acknowledged how she recently addressed -- at the request of my members -- an offensive tweet that came out of one of the member's offices that compared centrist Democrats to segregationists. That tweet was authored and then deleted by Ocasio-Cortez chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti.
Our members took offense at that, Pelosi said, claiming her comments received a positive response. I addressed that.
Ocasio-Cortez has since accused Pelosi of being disrespectful to several newly elected women of color. Pelosi repeatedly told reporters Thursday she wasnt going to say anything else on the subject, but said she supports diversity in the caucus.
I've said what I'm going to say What I said in the caucus yesterday had an overwhelming response from my members. Because they know what the facts are and what we are responding to. 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, she said.
On Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez stood by her Pelosi comments in an interview with CNN, saying she was pointing out a pattern. But she declined to call Pelosi a racist.

LOL. "I'm not calling her a racist but......she's a racist."
Diversity is our division.
All this infighting could help Trump win reelection.
Reason being, people see so many Democrats being out of control, and think to themselves, if they vote for whoever the Democrat presidential nominee is, you empower this cast of idiots in Congress. You face the possibility of them getting cabinet positions, etc. if a Democrat president gets elected.
This is great. These idiots are doing to the Democrats what the Libertarians tried to do to the Republicans.
Anyway, is the press camped out on Pelosi’s doorsteps screaming at her to comment more?
Fun to watch Democrats being eaten alive by the monster that they created, raised and nurtured for the last 30 or so years.
Hey Nancy, remember when you used to cry, its for the children for all the insane and destructive laws and policies you have been pushing?
Well, these are the children that it was all for.
It’s hilarious, AOC the dim bulb going after the Speaker who isn’t firing on eight cylinders all the time.
Exactly and some of those liberaltarians were on here trying to put down Trump during the election.
He’s the guy who wears Nazi T-Shirts.
The dems made their bed...and all that...
Right on! :^)
Yep, it's really the minor leagues of talent, kinda like watching girls soccer.
I mainly remember it being the Never Trumper traditional Republican types on here that were against Trump. Pushing for Cruz at all costs.
LOL... that is awesome, and so true. All Frankenstein's chickens are coming home to watch as she reaps what she has sown. Don't play with boomerangs, Nancy!
Will AOC get reelected?
That is the $20k question.
