Pelosi: Tweets Show Trump Trying to 'Make America White Again'

Trump last week weighed into the tensions between Pelosi and progressive reps like Omar, telling reporters at the White House, "If one-half of the things they're saying about her are true, she shouldn't be in office". Ana Kasparian, Aida Rodriguez, and Francesca Fiorentini, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

Trump used his Sunday morning to lash out at the so-called "Squad" of progressive House members, including Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ayanna Pressley of MA and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY, claiming they are from "corrupt" and "inept" foreign countries. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY and Ayanna Pressley of MA, they are known as "The Squad" of freshman liberals who are feuding openly with Mrs. Pelosi. Chakrabarti's attack on the party leadership was followed his boss Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez herself accusing Speaker Pelosi of singling out "women of color" in the party after she (Pelosi) had referenced his tweets and warned in a closed door meeting against party cadres airing grievances in public. "They're four folks, and that's what number of votes they got".

Democratic Socialist Ocasio-Cortez accused the leader of the Democratic Party of "singling out" women of color. Her chief of staff raised race in a tweet that attacked moderate Democrats, writing: "They certainly seem hell-bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did the '40s".

"When these women tell me that they were put into a cell, and that their sink was not working, and we tested the sink ourselves and the sink was not working, and they were told the drink out of a toilet bowl - I believed them", she said. "I don't think most of us are".

"I don't. I don't", Cuccinelli said.

Ocasio-Cortez repeated statements she released immediately after the visit to the El Paso facility, that she saw women drinking water from toilets.

Now, 12 years after leaving Spider-Man behind, the director gave a rare shout out to the Spider-Man movie that never was. Jonah Jameson , a role he previously played in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy.

The speaker scolded the group in a private meeting: "You got a complaint?" She said later that there's a "constant struggle oftentimes with people who have power about sharing that power".

"These people are faced with cruel decisions, inhumane decisions, on what they should do to make their children's lives better, and what they should do to make their own lives better", Omar said.

Omar suggested that Pelosi is resisting sharing her power.

Everyone on capitol hill who doesn't fall in line with the highly liberal agenda of AOC and her allies are anxious they're next.

Liberal activist Adam Green, a Warren ally, said that with the exception of the Democratic Party's eventual presidential nominee, no Democrat will command more attention in national politics in 2020 than Ocasio-Cortez.

"These are all a bunch of dirty cops and I'll tell you", he told Fox News' Bill Hemmer on the latest "Hemmer Time" podcast. "But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just okay".
