House Dem blasts ‘juvenile’ Ocasio-Cortez, chief of staff: ‘Ignorance is beyond belief’

Westlake Legal Group Clay-AOC_Getty-AP House Dem blasts 'juvenile' Ocasio-Cortez, chief of staff: 'Ignorance is beyond belief' Sam Dorman fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 20148541-2ea3-5333-8ff4-e17e71b5c42f

Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., added to the mounting Democratic criticism of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., reportedly calling her, her chief of staff, and the group Justice Democrats “juvenile.”

“Their ignorance is beyond belief,” Clay, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, reportedly said while in the Speaker’s Lobby. His comments followed a feud between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and freshman congresswomen, like Ocasio-Cortez, that involved racially-charged criticism.

Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, previously compared moderate Democrats to racists — prompting Pelosi, at the request of some of her members, warn House Democrats not to attack each other on Twitter.

‘VIEW’ TELLS AOC, OTHER DEMS TO RESPECT PELOSI AFTER RACISM ACCUSATION: ‘BS’

“You got a complaint?  You come and talk to me about it.  But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just ok,” she reportedly said. On the same day of that caucus meeting, Ocasio-Cortez called out Pelosi for what she sees as the speaker continually targeting her and other freshmen lawmakers of color.

Clay reportedly addressed the racial undertones of the criticisms coming from Ocasio-Cortez’s office, saying it was “unbelievable” it would bring up that issue.

“What a weak argument, because you can’t get your way and because you’re getting pushback you resort to using the race card? Unbelievable. That’s unbelievable to me,” Clay reportedly said on Thursday.

Clay wasn’t the only one to attack Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday. “The View” hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg criticized her’s and others’ decision to attack Democrats like Pelosi. “I think this is more BS,” Goldberg said of Ocasio-Cortez’s comments on race.

Pelosi, meanwhile, refused to provide further comment on the feud while discussing it during her weekly press briefing.

“I’ve said what I’m going to say…What I said in the caucus yesterday had an overwhelming response from my members,” she said.

“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.”

Bernie Sanders seemingly dips toe into Democrats’ feud, tells young people to embrace progressive ‘power’

Westlake Legal Group AOC-Bernie-Pelosi_AP Bernie Sanders seemingly dips toe into Democrats' feud, tells young people to embrace progressive 'power' Liam Quinn fox-news/politics/elections/democratic-convention fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 3f9ce1da-096f-5bad-a731-7c0ee7e139a9

As the feud among wings of the Democratic Party continues to grow, Bernie Sanders has backed young people to “recognize” their progressive “power.”

The Vermont senator issued a call to the younger, more progressive parts of the party on Thursday, tweeting: “My message to young people: recognize your power as the most progressive generation in history.”

The comment came after Sanders took a victory lap of sorts on Wednesday, saying he had “a deep sense of satisfaction” that the Democrats have embraced positions he previously held during the 2016 election.

“Many of the ideas that I brought forth, $15-an-hour minimum wage- ‘Hey Bernie, you’re crazy, that’s too extreme,’” Sanders said on MSNBC.

PELOSI RESPONDS TO AOC SLAM, SAYS CAUCUS HAS HER BACK FOR CONDEMNING CHIEF OF STAFF’S ‘OFFENSIVE’ TWEET

He also recalled a debate in 2016 when he said climate change was the biggest “national security crisis” and how “people kind of laughed,” but they’re “not laughing today.”

Sanders’ backing of youthful progressives came as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the most progressive Democrats in the House, has been feuding with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

Pelosi stood her ground Thursday in response to AOC claiming the speaker had 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, D-N.Y., has led.

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.

AOC UPS ANTE IN FEUD WITH PELOSI, SUGGESTS SPEAKER IS ‘SINGLING OUT’ NEWLY ELECTED ‘WOMEN OF COLOR’

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’s, 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 wasn’t going to say anything else on the subject but added that she supported 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.

GINGRICH ON DEMS’ INFIGHTING: AOC, OTHER FRESHMEN QUESTIONING WHY THEY NEED TO LISTEN TO PELOSI

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.

Ocasio-Cortez also recently voiced support for Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Sanders — perceived progressive leaders whom polling showed as having the best shot at stealing former Vice President Joe Biden’s frontrunner status in the presidential race.

“Well, I’m definitely pro-Sanders in that I want him to do well,” she said. “I want him to succeed. But, there are other candidates as well, you know, I think Elizabeth Warren is doing a great job, too.”

She also made headlines by suggesting Biden might be too old to be president.

Ocasio-Cortez told The New Yorker that Biden’s performance during the first primary debate raised questions about his cognitive abilities.

“It’s not just about being centrist, per se. It’s, when you are struggling to talk about segregationists and you err on the side of discussing them in glowing terms, that is a big problem,” she said.

AOC accuses Congress of using women, minorities as ‘bargaining chips’ who have been ‘auctioned off’ for decades

Westlake Legal Group AOC-AP AOC accuses Congress of using women, minorities as 'bargaining chips' who have been 'auctioned off' for decades Nick Givas fox-news/politics/regulation/media fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox news fnc/politics fnc c72cb69b-b2be-5771-a12b-b0728b757a6e article

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused Congress of using women and minorities as chess pawns, saying the communities have been “auctioned off and negotiated off” for decades.

“When it comes to women of color in Congress, particularly the freshman, it’s that we both have encountered and represent communities that have been auctioned off and negotiated off for the last 20 years. And we’re over it,” she said during a Tuesday interview with The New Yorker Radio Hour.

Ocasio-Cortez said there is a significant amount of insincere pandering that occurs when lawmakers are in the midst of legislative discussions.

OCASIO-CORTEZ: PELOSI GIVING ME BUSY WORK, MIGHT BE TRYING TO KEEP ME OUT OF THE WAY

PELOSI SAYS SHE HAS ‘NO REGRETS’ ABOUT CALLING OUT FOUR PROGRESSIVE MEMBER: ‘NOT WHAT I DO’

“We see in these negotiations all the time— it’s like fighting for black communities or policies that help women,” she said. “They’re bargaining chips. And they’re the first chips that are reached for in any legislative negotiations.”

Ocasio-Cortez also commented on the current state of the Democratic party and encouraged her colleagues to stop fearing the word socialism. She also said she was shocked by how concentrated power has become within the nation’s capital.

“We don’t know how to talk about our own issues in ways that I think are convincing … we’re too often on the defense. We’re too often afraid of our own values and sticking up for them. And I feel like we run away from our convictions too much,” she said.

“The rules of Congress have changed over the years to put, I think, an insane amount of power in a handful of people — within even just the House of Representatives itself. The Speaker, [party] leadership, committee chairs … over the years the rules have changed to kind of consolidate power to a very large degree.”

Former Gov. Martinez on AOC wanting to get rid of DHS: ‘It’s pure insanity’ and would put country at risk

Martinez on AOC wanting to get rid of DHS: 'It's pure insanity' and would put country at risk fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/outnumbered fox-news/politics/executive/homeland-security fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc David Montanaro article 6756b78a-fa0a-5694-b955-d6479cb93a74

Former New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez said Wednesday on “Outnumbered” that getting rid of the Department of Homeland Security – as  Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently suggested – is “pure insanity” and would put the country at risk.

“Homeland Security was created in order to keep America safe, it was created after 9/11. I just think Ocasio-Cortez is into the shock and awe. She wants to make a statement and be ahead of everything,” said Martinez, who served as the state’s Republican governor from 2011 to 2019.

Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., made her remarks during a Friday appearance on the New Yorker Radio with host David Remnick, bringing up the fact that Immigration and Customs Enforcement is under DHS.

AOC PUSHES BACK AT PELOSI, SAYS HOUSE SPEAKER’S BELITTLING OF PROGRESSIVES ‘PUZZLING’

“Would you get rid of the Department of Homeland Security, too?” Remnick asked.

“I think so. I think we need to undo a lot of the egregious, umm, a lot of the egregious mistakes that the Bush administration did,” said Ocasio-Cortez, who has championed the elimination of ICE.

Martinez said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to balance the party and keep the focus away from Ocasio-Cortez’s “far left” ideas before the 2020 presidential election.

Panelist Charlie Hurt said it was “amazing” that Pelosi, D-Calif., used to be on the far left of the Democratic Party, and is now seeming like the “center of her party.”

“Joe Biden used to be the center of the party. Now he’s on the right-wing fringe of his party and it’s not healthy for the Democrats,” said Hurt, joking that Ocasio-Cortez and other liberal freshmen members should call themselves “the committee to re-elect Donald Trump” because their policy ideas could hurt Democrats in 2020.

Is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responsible for her conflict with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and her cohorts?

According to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, she is.

AOC DE-LISTED FROM JUSTICE DEMOCRATS’ BOARD FOLLOWING CAMPAIGN FINANCE COMPLAINT

“While attempting to take Pelosi’s aside against the AOC allergens, she has no one to blame but herself. Now, why do I say this?” Ingraham said on “The Ingraham Angle” Tuesday.

Ingraham chastised Pelosi for accusing the president of racism Monday before mocking Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez’s battles.

“While these young Turks are kind of fun to watch as they scrounge for any morsel of attention, they have gone so far left, so fast, they sent Speaker Pelosi reaching for her heart pills,” Ingraham said.

“Let’s face it, what else are they going to try to argue?” Ingraham said. “That Trump’s economy isn’t in terrific shape? Good luck.”

Hannity: ‘All-out war’ going on within the Democratic Party

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6057206169001_6057202077001-vs Hannity: 'All-out war' going on within the Democratic Party Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 545bcfa2-7979-5e62-9a57-b5a475e4d297

Fox News’ Sean Hannity spoke Tuesday about the “all-out war” within the Democratic Party on his television show saying that all Republicans can do is watch while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cotez, D-N.Y., jockey for position.

“An all-out war war is erupting inside the Democratic party, as speaker, in name only, Nancy Pelosi continues to lose control of her caucus and she’s losing it to freshman congresswoman… Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the new extreme left,” Hannity said.

JONATHAN SWAN: PELOSI UNDERESTIMATING PROGRESSIVE FORCE INSIDE HER OWN PARTY

Hannity outlined the political beef and also pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez is now targeting her fellow Democrats who do not align with her and her group.

“The real speaker showing no signs of backing down because Ocasio-Cortez is now using Pelosi’s own words against her. Rehashing Pelosi’s previous attacks, like when she said ‘a glass of water could have won in her district’ and tweeting yesterday, ‘Those aren’t quotes for me, they are from the speaker. Having respect for ourselves does not mean we lack respect for her,'” Hannity said.

“It doesn’t stop there because the far left group aligned with the congresswoman is now targeting, yes, targeting, Democratic incumbents who have defied to the parties extreme freshman wing.”

The Fox Host accused Ocasio-Cortez of creating her own “enemies list” and resetting the agenda of her party.

“Ocasio-Cortez literally keeping an enemies list, apparently of targets… inside her own party, rather. This is an all out Democratic circular firing squad. The new radical left setting the agenda, everything from higher taxes, open borders, and, yes, the economy-killing so-called climate change alarmism,” Hannity said.

Hannity predicted the entire Democratic Party would move “further left.”

“These wounds are going to get deeper and deeper and the fight louder and louder, because every time Pelosi tries to get her power back and gavel back, the new extreme Democrats, they get louder and louder and move further and further to the left,” Hannity said.

Megan Rapinoe rips Trump WH visit, says she’d accept invites from Pelosi, AOC

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Rapinoe-Pelosi-AOC_AP Megan Rapinoe rips Trump WH visit, says she'd accept invites from Pelosi, AOC Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/sports fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/megan-rapinoe fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc b61c6ee0-532e-5880-a45f-76ff2b42f5bd article

U.S. Women’s Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe doubled down in her opposition to visit the Trump White House on Tuesday but expressed that she was open to accept invitations from anyone who “believes the same things we believe in” like Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY.

Rapinoe’s feud with the president began last month when she declared she was “not going to the f—ing White House,” which prompted a response from Trump on Twitter.

“I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!” Trump exclaimed, later adding that he would invite the team to the White House “win or lose.”

Following her team’s victory at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, Rapinoe told CNN anchor Anderson Cooper that she has yet to receive a formal invitation from the White House nor does she appear to want it.

“I don’t think anyone on the team has any interest in lending the platform that we’ve worked hard to build and the things that we fight for and the way that we live our life,” Rapinoe said, “I don’t think we want that to be co-opted or corrupted by this administration… There are so many other people that I would rather talk to and have meaningful conversations that can really affect change in Washington than going to the White House.”

When asked if she had a message for the president, she took a moment to ponder.

“Your message is excluding people. You’re excluding me. You’re excluding people that look like me. You’re excluding people of color. You’re excluding Americans that maybe support you,” she told Trump. “We need to have a reckoning with the message that you have and what you’re saying about ‘Make America Great Again.’ I think you are harking back to an era that was not great for everyone.”

Rapinoe urged the president that he has an “incredible responsiblity” to “take care of every single person and you need to better for everyone.”

After her icy words for Trump, she spoke warmly about potential meetings with Democratic lawmakers in a future trip to Washington D.C.

“This is such a special moment for us and to be able to sort of leverage this moment, talk about the things we want to talk about and to celebrate like this with the leaders of our country is an incredible moment,” Rapinoe continued. “So yes to AOC, yes to Pelosi, yes to a bipartsan Congress, yes to Chuck Schumer, yes to anyone else that wants to invite us and have a real substantive conversation and that believe in the same things we believe in.”

Jesse Watters: Pelosi mishandling AOC and other ‘bomb throwers’ by having ‘public spats’

Westlake Legal Group Watters-Pelosi-AOC_FOX-AP-Reuters Jesse Watters: Pelosi mishandling AOC and other 'bomb throwers' by having 'public spats' Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 46463222-9970-5431-9372-7b6f821b9d3e

Is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., mishandling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and her fellow freshman cohorts?

Fox News’ Jesse Watters said Pelosi is approaching the situation in the wrong manner, comparing it to former House Speaker John Boehner’s handling of the Tea Party.

“She has four bomb throwers. He had dozens of Tea Party members starting in 2010. He had them for many, many years. It made his life hell over spending and the debt ceiling. And he did his best to keep the beef behind closed doors, right,” Watters said Monday on “The Five.”

“Nancy seems to keep having these public spats and she’s only got four little bomb throwers and it has only been four months. And she’s already had fights about anti-Semitism, impeachment, progressivism and now the border funding thing… the Green New Deal.”

AOC FIRES BACK AFTER PELOSI BLASTS FAR-LEFT DEMS’ ‘TWITTER WORLD’

In a New York Times piece published Saturday, Pelosi dismissed Ocasio-Cortez three other progressive congresswomen saying they are just “four people.”

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi said of Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., making light of their presence on social media.

Watters advised Pelosi to ignore the four congresswomen and to not to underestimate their social media influence.

“She would just be much better served if she would let her whip team handle the drama and ignore them and now she’s nicknamed them ‘the squad.’ She’s elevating them in the media and I think this is wrong,” Watters said.

“You shouldn’t diminish the power of social media. She doesn’t dial for dollars. [Ocasio-Cortez] can leverage that platform, very powerful and Nancy doesn’t understand that and I think she should soon.”

An Arizona Border Patrol official said Monday he is trying his best to dispel the “absurd” claims from Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who have called U.S. detention facilities “concentration camps.”

Tlaib, D-Mich., was asked on ABC’s “This Week” whether she agrees with the original controversial claim of Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., about the facilities being used to house migrant families.

“Absolutely. It’s traumatic. … They are in a facility that is dehumanizing,” she responded, insisting the “concentration camp” label is accurate.

Roy Villareal, the Chief Border Patrol agent in the Tucson sector, reacted on “Fox & Friends” by saying that the system is “broken” and was not designed to handle families and unaccompanied children.

“We’ve been asking for help. … We do our best but we have simply been overwhelmed. And to assert that there are concentration camps along the southwest border is absolutely absurd,” he said, adding that the men and women of the Border Patrol are doing the best they can to take care of people.

Villareal also explained why he felt compelled to make a video tour of a holding center and post it on the agency’s Twitter account.

He specifically pushed back on claims that migrants are being forced to drink toilet water and are not being given basic supplies like toothbrushes.

“It’s just to dispel a lot of misinformation out there,” he said, adding that new funding approved by Congress last week will help, but “more needs to be done.”

Tlaib doubles down on AOC’s concentration camp comments, claims border agents believe it’s a ‘broken system’

Westlake Legal Group Tlaib-ABC-Getty Tlaib doubles down on AOC's concentration camp comments, claims border agents believe it's a 'broken system' Nick Givas fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/politics/regulation/media fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox news fnc/politics fnc b44ebc61-b6b1-5efe-b5db-71cf57b186d7 article

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., said she agreed with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., about the conditions of detention centers along the U.S.-Mexico border and claimed AOC was right to compare them to Nazi concentration camps.

Ocasio-Cortez compared the facilities to concentration camps during a June livestream, saying: “That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps.” Her comments drew backlash from Holocaust survivors and several members of her own party. She then repeated her remarks in a tweet last Tuesday.

Tlaib appeared on ABC News’ “This Week” on Sunday and doubled down on AOC’s sentiments, regarding the federal government’s alleged mistreatment of illegal immigrants.

TLAIB TO PELOSI: ‘FOCUS’ ON MCCONNELL INSTEAD OF BASHING PROGRESSIVES

“Absolutely [I agree]. There are a number of experts who say — because it’s traumatic. I mean, I don’t know how to explain to people what we saw,” she said. “When we’re explaining to people and they’re kind of looking back and saying, well that can’t be true. I said, but we were all there … We saw what we saw and we heard from the folks that were in the facilities, and some of them have not seen their children since being there.

“What you need to also know is — do you know the mere touch, the mere, even me holding the hand, broke them down in tears. That tells you they’re under a lot of trauma, that they are in a facility that is dehumanizing. And, you know, this is a choice by the current administration. They are choosing to not allow asylum seekers to go through the legal process.”

Martha Raddatz cut off Tlaib and challenged her assessment, saying the Trump administration has been requesting migrant aid for months. She also asked Tlaib why she voted against the $4.6 billion bipartisan aid package, which passed in both the House and Senate before President Trump signed it into law.

Tlaib said it was a waste of money to bolster a flawed system and claimed unnamed border agents pulled her aside during her visit and agreed with her.

“Listen to this, do you know what the CPB agents said on the ground? …  Ask a CBP agent. That’s the one thing — I can talk to the [Homeland Security] secretary and he can say, throw more money at a broken system, an inhumane system — three agents took me aside, away from my colleagues and said, more money is not going to fix this, that they were not trained to separate children, that they don’t want to separate two-year-olds away from their mothers.

“That’s not what they were trained for. That’s not what they signed up for in their service to our country. They signed up to protect the border, not to separate children, not to put people in cages. They all said, this is a broken system … They all don’t want to be doing this. They all know this is a choice,” she said.
