Nancy Pelosi is used to having the support of her party.
The House Majority Leader wields her power like a tyrant and most of her supporting members of Congress go along.
Which is why Nancy Pelosi was nearly in tears after one of her closest allies viciously betrayed her.
Pelosi should have seen it coming.
While the liberal media tries to paint a picture of Pelosi and one of her fellow Congressional representatives as being cozy and warm with each other, nothing could be further from the truth.
You see, this “ally” is none other than maverick representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Cortez isn’t all that fond of Pelosi because she doesn’t think Pelosi’s courageous enough to help rip America from its roots of independent individualism.
Recently, Cortez and Pelosi had a significant disagreement over how the United States has handled the immigration problem.
Now, neither woman thinks that illegal immigration is a bad thing.
They both want more illegals in America and they’re both open to providing large swaths of American land and taxpayer money for the illegals.
But where they differ is on how radical they are in their ideology.
Cortez wants Pelosi to be even more left than she already is, which has caused the two of them to battle it out publicly.
When the majority of Democrats in the House voted on Trump’s bill to increase the amount of money to aid illegal immigrants, Cortez and three other Democrats voted against it.
Cortez basically doesn’t want money from Trump to go to help illegals because she doesn’t trust the Trump administration.
So she accused Pelosi of being against the well-being of illegal aliens because she relented and signed Trump’s bill.
Cortez said, “I don’t believe it was a good idea for Dems to blindly trust the Trump admin when so many kids have died in their custody. It’s a huge mistake.”
Wounded by the attack, Pelosi tried to downplay Cortez’s admonishments.
“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi told the New York Times, “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.”
Unfortunately, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez represents the new guard of Democrats and her sentiment towards illegal immigration is becoming the norm among younger voters.
Pelosi can sense that change is afoot and the pressure is clearly getting to her.
This isn’t the first time she and Cortez have waged a war of words via the press.
Only a few days before, Pelosi rebuffed Ocasio-Cortez and said her comments about the quality of the immigration detention centers was off base.
Sadly, the media is fawning over AOC and she’s giving them more to write about every single day.
Which is why, as scary as it is to admit, there may come a day when Americans will wish they had a woman like Pelosi leading the Democrats – instead of a socialist radical like Ocasio-Cortez.
