Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, July 12, 2019

Rep. Wm. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, fumed at Ocasio-Cortez and the group of progressive lawmakers that includes Reps. Tlaib (Mich.), Omar (Minn.) and Pressley (Mass.), adding to the mounting Democratic criticism of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slamming her "inappropriate" suggestion that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is singling out the New Yorker and her "squad" of fellow freshman because of their race.

"What a weak argument, because you can't get your way and because you're getting pushback you resort to using the race card? Unbelievable. That's unbelievable to me," Clay said. "It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.

"Their ignorance is beyond belief," Clay also said while in the Speaker's Lobby, according to The Hill. Clay reportedly saw Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff as "juvenile."

They abhor anyone that works for the 99% instead of the 1%

Not sure. Would you like to talk with the nice men in the white lab coats holding the butterfly nets?

Corky won't comment or commit with a ten-foot-pole. He wants to use AOC when convenient, but will be forced to shut her down if she ever threatens his precious corporate-winged caucus.

I think that is part of the problem that the DNC has with AOC...she threatens their corporate donation spigot and that is verbotten.

She's getting corporate donations now.

Of course she is and will have to take more of it if she doesn't want to be primaried in 2020, but the Party wants to make sure that she and her idiot Chief of Staff understand that they can't shut off the "spice" flow.

Did you ever wonder if there was a reason the older Dems (Bernie excluded) weren't tripping over each other to see how much of other people's money they could give away?

Like the man said...Ignorance is beyond belief. My 14 year old daughter would make a better politician than AOC...or Bernie for that matter.

Lacy doesn't understand what AOC's mutant power is. That's not ignorance. It's far too powerful to be just ignorance.

Trump and Pelosi end the week by attacking the same women. Huh.

Your 14 year old daughter couldn't find her way out of a paper bag and has a face only daddy can love, woof.

Meanwhile AOC is in congress, making your head spin.
