House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed the leftist takeover and made it clear last week that she and socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are fully in sync.
After a private meeting on Friday, Pelosi downplayed her differences with Ocasio-Cortez and said they are on the same page regarding the socialist takeover of the Democratic Party.

“It went very well,” Pelosi said. “I don’t think we have that many differences.”
Pelosi caved and admitted she didn’t confront AOC for accusing her of singling out female colleagues of color for criticism.
“I have meetings with members all the time,” Pelosi told reporters. “We covered a range of issues in our conversation particular to the congresswoman’s committees.”
Ocasio-Cortez essentially suggested Pelosi was racist, and the California Democrat didn’t say anything about it.

The meeting came after Pelosi feuded with “The Squad” — Democratic Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley — after the four freshman lawmakers voted against an emergency border-aid bill brought to the floor by leadership.

The Squad also went public with their criticism of the bill and took a slew of shots at Pelosi for “allowing” the House to pass the Republican bill.
“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi said after the bill passed. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.”
Ocasio-Cortez then took issue with Pelosi’s minimizing the influence of the four representatives.
“It got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful,” she said. “The explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”
Pelosi later reprimanded the Democratic caucus and included a not-so-subtle message to the four congresswomen.

“You got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it,” Pelosi said during a closed-door meeting with Democrats after the internal dissension spilled into the public eye. “But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just OK.”
The Pelosi-AOC feud has been brewing for awhile.
Back in May, Ocasio-Cortez put Pelosi on notice over the weekend and said the time to impeach President Donald Trump is “now,” not later.
During an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” AOC told host Jon Karl that pressure to impeach Trump grows every day, and that frustration with Pelosi’s resistance is “quite real.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s comments came on the heels of Pelosi admitting that Democrats are “not even close” to backing an impeachment push against Trump.
This is another reminder that despite what Pelosi says, apparently Ocasio-Cortez thinks she is running the Democrats and calling the shots.
