Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has started what appears to be a civil war among House Democrats.
On Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of singling out women based on their color, basically calling her a racist. This doesn’t appear to be getting better anytime soon.
Now another congressional Democrat has gotten involved in the spat between Ocasio-Cortez and Pelosi. Missouri Democrat William Clay called out Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff for “playing the race card.”
“It was such a weak argument to say she was being picked on and that four women of color were being picked on by the speaker,” he said.
“It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.”
