As we’ve mentioned, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez decided to go there with Nancy Pelosi.
Yup – she pulled the race card.
Pelosi has issued a response:
Pelosi responds to Ocasio-Cortez’s accusation of racism: “I said what I’m going to say in the caucus. That’s where this is appropriate. They took offense because I addressed … an offensive tweet from [AOC’s chief-of-staff]. … I’m not going to be discussing it any further” pic.twitter.com/6ACRvVeS0Y

According to Daily Wire:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded on Thursday to accusations of racism made against her by socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) by noting that this latest spat between the two Democratic lawmakers was started by Ocasio-Cortez’s chief-of-staff and saying that she is no longer going to discuss the issue.
“I said what I’m going to say in the caucus. That’s where this is appropriate,” Pelosi said. “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.”
“How they’re interpreting and carrying it to another place is up to them,” Pelosi continued. “But I’m not going to be discussing it any further.”
As much as I don’t like Nancy, this is absolutely absurd. But you know what? I don’t feel bad for her AT ALL. Why? BECAUSE DEMOCRATS DID THIS TO THEMSELVES. THEY CREATED THIS.
You reap what you sow, Nancy.
