Pelosi has officially lost control of the Democrats…
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi challenged the House’s Socialists, specifically Reps Omar, Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and Pressley, stating they lack authority and following in the Democratic Party stating “They’re four individuals and that’s how many votes they’ve got.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley have a large amount of followers on social media. Their results are so powerful that the four have begun acting as if they were the ones running the Democratic Party and the House of Representatives in 2019.
But Nancy Pelosi just shot down any concept that the four youthful Democrats have the authority they believe they possess. Pelosi stated, “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world…but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got,” she said.
This statement didn’t sit well with the four Democrats, particularly Representative Ilhan Omar, who questioned the authority and place of Speaker Pelosi directly.
You know they’re just salty about WHO is wielding the power to shift “public sentiment” these days, sis.

Omar basically says she and Rep’s Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and Pressley are now responsible for the House and the party.
This is a direct challenge for Speaker Pelosi, one she will be unlikely to overlook or reluctant to overlook. Nancy Pelosi, after all, did not become House Speaker by allowing freshman officials pass through her.
