Pelosi dismisses clout of AOC, House progressives in ‘Twitter world’

Jul 7, 2019 | New York Post

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissed the Twitter-dependent influence of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her progressive colleagues for voting against an emergency aid package for the southern border.

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” the California Democrat told the New York Times in a report published Sunday. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”
