The body of a 29-year-old and the brain of a toddler. Wonder how long she'll last.

I've said it before but I'll say it again: She really is the (D) female version of Trump in so many ways...
If AOC has the brain of a toddler what does the rest of congress who are clearly less talented than her have a brain of? A pig?

*snip*

House Democrats and their aides are quickly losing patience with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her office's nonstop sparring with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other long-serving members, suggesting the speaker's dismissive comments toward her may represent the view of a growing section of the caucus.

“She is a complete fraud,” one senior Democratic source told Fox News on Friday, succinctly summing up members' frustration.

The last straw, for some, was the lawmaker's claim that Pelosi was uniquely disrespectful to minority congresswomen. One senior lawmaker, who is black, scorched Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday for allegedly using the race card against the speaker, calling her comments "so inappropriate." Some lawmakers have even turned the tables, arguing that a group aligned with her is targeting black lawmakers for potential primary challenges in questioning those comments.

HOUSE DEM BLASTS 'JUVENILE' AOC

“Her peers do not take her seriously,” the senior Democratic source said Friday, adding: “They think it is absurd to call the speaker racist. Offensive and absurd.”

She’s a nobody who is solely propped up by social media which has the attention span of a woodpecker on a tree. It’s possible she’s being as inflammatory as possible to remain relevant, knowing it’s her only chance since she has nothing of actual value to offer.

Or there's always another view if you aren't looking thru partisan blinders, and hoping for the worst.

“With all due respect, the press likes to make a story that is more about Democrats divided than the fact that Mitch McConnell doesn’t care about the children,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Maureen Dowd in a recent interview.
Yet the rhetorical sparring does obscure a broader Democratic unity. The border-funding vote aside, there’s barely any daylight between Democrats on matters actually before the House. The Squad has broken with Pelosi on just two votes so far, according to ProPublica’s tracker. The gap between the party’s moderate and left wings is relatively small, too. Ocasio-Cortez and Representative Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey, a co-chair of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, have parted ways on just 13 percent of votes; Omar and Representative Max Rose of New York, who’s more pragmatic than ideological, on 7 percent of votes.

These numbers can mislead. We’re only a few months into the Congress, and there are plenty of opportunities for bigger gulfs to appear; partisans agree on most things most of the time because most votes aren’t on hot-button issues. Nor does it make sense to pretend that everything’s copacetic. Rose and Omar tangled very publicly over remarks she made about Israel, some of which he considered anti-Semitic.

Even acknowledging these facts, there’s a world of difference between these dustups and the veritable civil war among Republicans when they controlled the House. The House Freedom Caucus, the conservative GOP coalition, made the lives of Republican Speakers John Boehner and Paul Ryan impossible and eventually hounded them into retirement. In the previous Congress, House Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows voted against Ryan on a third of all votes.
You can cackle & giggle with glee with the disagreements between the progressives and the old guard. But should 45 need to pass another bit of legislature whose unity do think he's going to count on?

That doesn’t explain how her hearings have gone down.

1) AOC is not dumb, she's far from it.

2) I disagree with Pelosi at saying Dems shouldn't call other Dems out. IMO, Yes they should!!!!

3) AOC has made some great points/arguments about race, but she's also reached too far several times. So I can't call her claims about Pelosi. But I wouldn't put anything past anyone.

4) I'll wait for another source to past better judgement. The NY Post hates AOC.

Whatever any of you want to imagine as some kind "cat fight" ( gotta love reaching down low to run with the sexism ), you can always count on 45 doing his best to unite others.

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

Nancy Pelosi Retweeted Donald J. Trump

When @realDonaldTrump tells four American Congresswomen to go back to their countries, he reaffirms his plan to “Make America Great Again” has always been about making America white again. Our diversity is our strength and our unity is our power.
Even if it will be temporary.
