Once again the Democratic Party is having a war within. Rep. Nancy Pelosi takes down Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her "Twitter followers."
While speaking with USA Today, Pelosi said that having a large number of Twitter followers is not nearly as important as having a large number of votes.
While Pelosi is right, she has definitely done things to stoke the Ocasio-Cortez flames, such as appear on the cover of Rolling Stone with her.
“While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House,” @SpeakerPelosi told me. https://t.co/RAY26MNOjC https://t.co/FOIGG9zXtA

Even CNN joined in on the fun.

Despite not mentioning Ocasio-Cortez's name, it's clear to everyone who Pelosi is calling out.
Not subtle at all.

This isn't the first time this has happened. Remember when AOC introduced the Green New Deal and Pelosi mocked it?

This was in the wake of former President Barack Obama calling out his party for being too rigid.
You realize this is YOUR fault: Barack Obama is now rebuking the party he drove off the Left cliff https://t.co/wTv9XtHIyU

The frustration with far left Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is growing. It is definitely something worth watching as we head toward the 2020 election.
