Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s rise to leader of the Democrat Party just hit a major speed bump.
The freshmen Congresswoman feuded with both President Trump and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just suffered the most humiliating defeat of her life.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s fight with Nancy Pelosi over the heart and soul of the Democrat Party was even more nasty than her racist taunts at Donald Trump.
Ocasio-Cortez wanted to push the Democrats even farther to the left in supporting open borders, but Pelosi held the line realizing that Ocasio-Cortez would lead the Democrats into a political graveyard.
The battle turned ugly when Ocasio-Cortez ripped Nancy Pelosi for passing $4.5 billion in humanitarian aid through the Democrat-controlled House to address the crisis at the Southern border.
Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow “Squad” members broke out into a rage over the fact that the bill did not shackle the Trump administration with handcuffs and prevent them from enforcing immigration law.
Pelosi slammed Ocasio-Cortez and other pro-open borders radicals who attacked the bill by telling the press that Ocasio-Cortez and her allies had no real power in Congress.
That led to Ocasio-Cortez blasting Pelosi as a racist in an exclusive interview with the Washington Post.
“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” Ocasio-Cortez declared.
“But the persistent singling out . . . it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful . . . the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”
The Pelosi/Ocasio-Cortez feud heated up when Ocasio-Cortez’s controversial chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, attacked the Democrats who won their seats in districts Trump won for supporting nominal border security.
Chakrabarti tweeted: “Instead of ‘fiscally conservative but socially liberal, let’s call the New Democrats and Blue Dog Caucus the ‘New Southern Democrats.’”
“They certainly seem hell bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the 40s,’” Chakrabarti added.
Chakrabarti later deleted those tweets.
But for Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez to reach a truce, Ocasio-Cortez had to give in.
And part of Ocasio-Cortez and Pelosi agreeing to stand down – for now – was Chakrabarti and Ocasio-Cortez’s communications director Corbin Trent resigning from Ocasio-Cortez’s Congressional office.
Trent will move to Ocasio-Cortez’s 2020 re-election campaign and Chakrabarti will take a position with New Consensus – a group dedicated to lobbying for Ocasio-Cortez’s Marxist and anti-American “Green New Deal.”
Any way you slice it, Ocasio-Cortez was the one who came out on the losing end of this fight.
Ocasio-Cortez was forced to sacrifice two staffers to end hostilities with Pelosi.
And while many pundits believe Ocasio-Cortez runs the Democrat Party because of her massive social media following – and she does have a large say in the direction of the party – Nancy Pelosi is still in charge.
