POLITICS Nancy Pelosi Keeps Coming for the Fab Freshmen of Congress but She Doesn’t Have the Range

Jul 8, 2019 | The Root

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) may have overstayed her welcome. For some reason—maybe it’s jealousy, maybe it’s because the new crop of freshmen members of Congress—Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) refuse to kiss the ring—the senior congresswoman keeps coming for them and keeps embarrassing herself.

Over the weekend, Pelosi came for Ocasio-Cortez during a New York Times interview and quickly realized that her arms were too short to outbox the Twitter god.
