House Democrats' Twitter Account Pounces On AOC's Chief Of Staff

  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-NY. gestures while testifying before the House Oversight Committee hearing on family separation and detention centers Friday

Dowd also calls out Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, and features a quote from Rahm Emanuel, who said that Chakrabarti is a "snot-nosed punk" who "should only be so lucky to learn from somebody like Nancy who has shown incredible courage and who has twice returned the Democratic Party to power".

Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said comparing the detention camps to Nazi concentration camps - a pointed swipe at Ocasio-Cortez, who has used the analogy - doesn't help solve the problem.

The measure, which would require Trump to first receive Congressional approval before launching strikes against Iran, passed on July 12 in the Democratic-controlled lower house by a vote of 251-170.

Pressley said, "I do think that there are many people who are unheard and it's our job to create space for those voices to be heard, that's what guides me in this work every day, not palace intrigue".

Doubling down on his criticism, Chakrabarti added, "I don't believe Sharice is a racist person, but her votes are showing her to enable a racist system".

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has struggled to attract minority support early in his underdog presidential bid, was even more cautious when asked to address the rift as he campaigned Friday in New Hampshire.

"Who is this guy and why is he explicitly singling out a Native American woman of color?"

Saddle Up For Lil Nas X's New 'Old Town Road' Remix
On Thursday afternoon, Twitch announced the headlining performer for their annual TwitchCon event in San Diego, Lil Nas X . This one has Billy Ray Cyrus but also throws Young Thug and viral superstar and young yodeler Mason Ramsey into the stew.

Riding beside her: Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who was recently dissed for anti-Israel comments and insinuates anyone who disagrees with her is driven by racism or Islamaphobia; Rep. Rashida Tlaib of MI, whose anti-business, anti-police riffs have made her the rave of the radicals; and Rep. Ayanna Pressley of MA, who warned a White House advisor just this week to "keep my name out of your lying mouth". "She is a heavenly modern member who flipped a crimson seat blue".

"Protect Her Title Out Of Your Mouth", it stated with interspersed emojis of clapping hands. Attached to the tweet was a screenshot of a two-week old tweet from Chakrabarti responding to another tweet mentioning Rep. Davids. "Davids for a truly long time, utilize into yarn her a buddy, and encouraged her to scamper for Congress abet in the tumble of 2016", he said. "I'm overjoyed she did".

"Everything I tweeted 2 weeks ago was to call out the awful border funding bill that 90+ Dems opposed", he continued. It gave Trump a smooth take a look at to continue caging folks in horrendous stipulations. Our Democracy is actually falling apart. He also called Davids "a friend" and added that he wasn't "interested in substance-less Twitter spats". Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., all adverse.

In response, Pelosi tried to downplay their influence in an interview with the New York Times. "We do not get anywhere by blaming the people who are doing their best to help these people".

Ocasio-Cortez then expressed her frustration to the Washington Post: "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".

That comment sparked nettle from Condo Democrats and their aides, who have gotten extra and extra impatient with Ocasio-Cortez's sparring with the speaker.

After being sworn in at her request, a practice the committee generally eschews for fellow lawmakers and seemingly a taunt at dubious Republicans, she described migrant women telling her they had to sleep on the concrete floor and drink from the toilet because their cell's sink was broken.
