In this day and age of profound political polarity, it isn’t often that we find President Trump reaching across the aisle to defend a democratic lawmaker…especially not House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
But that is precisely what occurred today, as Pelosi faced criticism from one of the nation’s youngest and least experienced legislators.
President Trump lambasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) Friday morning as the far-left Democrat and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) continue to trade public barbs over last month’s border funding vote.
“I think Cortez is being very disrespectful to somebody who’s been there a long time,” the president told reporters at the White House ahead of a scheduled visit to Wisconsin. “I deal with Nancy Pelosi a lot and we go back and forth and it’s fine, but I think that a group of people is being very disrespectful to her,” the president continued. “And you know what, I don’t think that Nancy can let that go on.”
Trump seemed particularly concerned about AOC’s insinuation that Nancy Pelosi is shepherding her progressive flock under the auspices of racism.
“She is not a racist,” President Trump said of Pelosi on Friday. “For them to call her a racist is a disgrace.”
Members of the Congressional Black Caucus have similarly chided Ocasio-Cortez, whose race-baiting drivel has driven yet another wedge between the freshman democrat and her more experienced peers.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
