While Republican’s may not like Donald Trump, or even think he’s nuts?
They keep their doubts from the media headlines…
Democrats on the other hand?
They are ALL about having family/party fights that the media portrays as problematic …
It isn’t really…
Pelosi get’s her way almost always…
But the public bickering makes her double the amount of work…And just COULD cost some Democrats in Trump House districts come next years elections…
Her tongue lashing was met with applause by most of the parties lawmakers who are annoyed a small group of rookie progressive members in safe district that are loud about things they want that NOT chance of going anywhere but among their supporters ….
Speaker Nancy Pelosi chided progressives in a closed-door meeting Wednesday, calling on them to address their intra-party grievances privately rather than blasting their centrist colleagues on Twitter.
Pelosi’s comments, which were described as stern, came during the first full caucus meeting since a major blow up over emergency border funding last month between progressive and moderate lawmakers as well as a recent spat with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her freshman allies.
“So, again, you got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it,” Pelosi told Democrats, according to a source in the room. “But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just ok.”
Democrats inside the room said they interpreted that remark as a shot at Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, who called moderate Democrats members of the “Child Abuse Caucus” in a tweet over their support for the Senate’s version of the emergency humanitarian package.
“I’m here to help the children when it’s easy and when it’s hard. Some of you are here to make a beautiful pâté but we’re making sausage most of the time,” Pelosi told the caucus.
The speaker gave an emphatic defense of the moderates in the caucus, according to multiple sources, telling the room that they’re critical to holding the House majority. Pelosi told Democrats not to make the Blue Dog Coalition their targets and instead criticize her publicly if they need to go after someone.
The California Democrat added that when her members target her, it helps fundraising, eliciting a big laugh inside the room.
“We are a family, and every family has its moments,” Pelosi said.
Her remarks also come after Pelosi dismissed Ocasio-Cortez and the other members of the progressive “squad” in an interview with the New York Times over the weekend.
Pelosi questioned the actual influence the group has, given that they were the only four Democrats who opposed the House’s original humanitarian package….
