AOC Fires Back After Nancy Pelosi Insults Her Allies and Her “Twitter World”

AOC Fires Back After Nancy Pelosi Insults Her Allies and Her “Twitter World”

AOC did not take it well after Nancy Pelosi criticized her and 3 of her close allies in congress on the radical left.

Recently, 2020 Candidate Joe Biden also took a swipe at AOC.

Per St. Louis Dispatch, Biden, speaking with CNN’s Chris Cuomo in Des Moines, Iowa, suggested that “Medicare for All” is irrational, argued that the majority of Democrats are “center left” not “way left,” and said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, while “brilliant” and “bright,” did not represent Democrats who can win a general election in a competitive district or state.

However, Ocasio-Cortez’s influence on social media can not be understated.

study from Axios found AOC has more influence on Twitter than the media or establishment.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fired back Saturday night after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized her and other far-left freshmen congresswomen for voting against a $4.6 billion border bill that President Trump signed into law on Monday.

Congress had approved the bill with help from moderate Democrats – and in a New York Times interview Pelosi slammed the progressive wing of her party for not also supporting the humanitarian-assistance measure.

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

But Ocasio-Cortez took a different view.

“That public ‘whatever’ is called public sentiment,” Ocasio-Cortez answered later in a Twitter message. “And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country.”

In a separate message, Ocasio-Cortez also defended the use of social media by herself and her fellow newcomers to Congress, over the more traditional – and often more expensive and time-consuming — methods favored by longer-serving lawmakers.

“I find it strange when members act as though social media isn’t important,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “They set millions of [dollars] on [fire] to run TV ads so people can see their message.

“I haven’t dialed for dollars *once* this year,” she added, “& have more time to do my actual job. Yet we’d rather campaign like it’s 2008.”
