Pelosi calls AOC’s progressive wing ’like, five people’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi characterized the more progressive wing of House Democrats led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as ’like, five people’ that do not represent all progressives. Pelosi’s comments builds on her previous downplaying of their policy proposals, such as her criticism of Medicare-for-all and hesitation to endorse the Green New Deal.

Germany 1933- population 67 million. SS members - 50,000. We all know how that went. Numbers are only part of the equation. Don't write off the radicals as if they are harmless. They, like cancer, can do more damage than you might think.

Haha I love how they are eating each other. I almost hope AOC would get second term, just to see those clowns to implode under their own politics

You’d think that if progressive policies were so popular they’d be able to win an election without the use of primarying. Or maybe Bernie would have been able to beat the worst candidate ever to run for president. But I guess Twitter’s one hell of a drug.

AOC and her companions broke the unwritten rules of congress in challenging seniority and speaking out consistantly. Pelosi will attempt to erode their grasp on the Democrats over time. I suspect she will fail, for better or for worse.

"It's like totally only 5 people." Looks at her staff, "Right?"

Pelosi will continue to serve her donors and deny the reality that her centrist platform is a pro corporate pro wealthy platform. The only radical thing about the progressive platform is that it actually has the good of the “people” as it’s focus. Grab your pearls corporate trolls. Enjoy the blue wave! It’s new and improved progressive flavor will wash the sour taste of centrism.

Nancy is nothing more than a establishment hack, she spouts liberal ideas while taking money from big corp interests including oil. She needs to leave as well as all the other establishment hacks on both sides, anyone who takes PAC money is not working for the interest of the people.

Like 5 people, including the candidate who is (right now) likely to get our dem nomination.

AOC and the other leftists make liberals like Pelosi look same by comparison. I am a Conservative but I think its better to have liberals as opposition than leftists.

wow that back tracking on that comment was amazing, let me give you the short version: Pelosi: progressive people like Alexandria Cortez, theres only about 5 of them. Reporter: theres more than 5 progressives on the democratic party...aren't you supposed to be a progressive? Pelosi: Yep, that's right I am a progressive as well...
