POLITICS ASIDE: Trump Defends Pelosi, Slams ‘Disgraceful’ AOC for ‘Not Showing Respect’ to House Speaker

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.12.19

President Trump slammed “disgraceful” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from the White House lawn Friday morning; saying the freshman congresswoman should show “respect” to “somebody who has been there a long time.”

“Well I think Cortez is being very disrespectful to somebody who’s been there a long time. I deal with Nancy Pelosi a lot, we go back and forth, and it’s fine. I think that a group of people are being very disrespectful to her,” said the President.

“I don’t think that Nancy can let that go on… Cortez should treat Nancy Pelosi with respect, she should not be doing what she’s doing. I’ll tell you something about Nancy Pelosi: She’s not a racist. For them to call her a racist is a disgrace,” added Trump.

The escalating tension between Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the liberal wing of the Democratic Party took a dramatic turn this week; with Rep. Ocasio-Cortez accusing the leader of “singling out women of color.”

“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” Ocasio-Cortez told the Washington Post.

“But 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,” she added.

Pelosi has routinely dismissed far-left proposals such as the Green New Deal or moving forward on impeaching President Trump.

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi said earlier this week. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

“You got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it. But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just OK,” Pelosi told the liberal lawmakers during a closed-door meeting at the US Capitol.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw weighed-in on the growing controversy Thursday, writing “Madam Speaker, welcome to the true nature of identity politics – where you’re accused of being racist for no reason at all, and where intellectually lazy insults are used against you as a way to replace substantive debate of your argument or idea.”

DEMS IMPLODING: Ilhan Omar UNLOADS on Barack Obama for ‘Caging Kids’ and ‘Drone’ Strikes

Embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar abruptly unloaded on Barack Obama during an interview published in Politico Friday; slamming the former President for “caging kids” and “droning of countries around the world.”

“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar told Politico. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”

“I don’t believe that tiptoeing is the way to win the hearts and the minds of the people,” she added. “I get saddened by some of my freshman colleagues who can’t understand that within their districts the idea of Medicare for All is extremely popular. The Green New Deal is a very popular idea in their districts.”

Ocasio-Cortez found herself in more hot-water Thursday after posting instructions on how illegal immigrants can evade impending ICE raids.

“ICE will launch raids across 10 major cities this SUNDAY. Check your neighbors & know your rights. Remember: no one can enter your home without a *judicial warrant.* Sometimes ICE will try to show other papers to get in your house. Judicial warrants are from a court,” posted AOC on social media.

“No matter who you are or what your status is, this is the United States of America – where ALL people have rights. Know yours. Prepare. Visit (link: http://WeHaveRights.US) WeHaveRights.US to learn how to handle this & other ICE encounters in multiple languages,” she added. “f people come knocking, you do NOT have to open your door unless there is a signed judicial warrant. Check the site above to learn how to handle your rights in 4 scenarios in 7 different languages.”
