This is getting nuts even by nutty D.C. standards.
Now, freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is claiming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is inciting death threats against her. This comes just days after Ocasio-Cortez claimed Pelosi’s criticism of her and other Congresswomen of color was due to racism.
Remarkably, just this morning President Trump commented on the growing dispute by swatting aside Congresswoman Cortez’s comments and defending Nancy Pelosi. Apparently, the president has some unlikely allies in this regard as other senior Democrats are said to have taken to mocking Cortez as, “an ignorant, spoiled brat.”
