Ocasio-Cortez Tells ABC's Jon Karl There's a 'Very Real Animus' for Speaker Pelosi Among Progressive


By Caleb Howe Jun 16th, 2019, 1:16 pm

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared on This Week with George Stephanopoulos for her first Sunday morning interview since taking office, and spilled some tea about Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s standing with progressives.

ABC News Chief White House correspondent Jon Karl was the fill-in host, and he brought up recent polling that indicates Democrats are becoming increasingly favorable toward impeachment of President Donald Trump. He said that Speaker Pelosi has “really held her line” on impeachment, referring to her now frequently repeated position that bringing impeachment immediately would be a bad idea.

“How is that flying with progressives?” he asked.

“Well, you know, I think for me this question has — should not be about polls, it should not be about elections,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “I think that impeachment is incredibly serious, and this is about the presence and evidence that the president may have committed a crime, in this case more than one. And so I believe that our decision on impeachment should be based in our constitutional responsibilities and duties, and not in elections or polling.”

11. +1. Not a big fan of hers, but the headline is misleading

“I think it’s quite real,” said Ocasio-Cortez of progressive frustration with Pelosi. “I believe that there is a very real animus and desire to make sure that we are, that — that we are holding this president to account.”

2. I can be skeptical of AOC, but that is not what she said.

3. We can parse, explain, rationalize, minimize, 'ignore' - but this repeated stuff costs the Dems,

in the very important, ongoing, battle against traitortrump.

9. Did I miss something?

"I think it’s quite real,” said Ocasio-Cortez of progressive frustration with Pelosi. “I believe that there is a very real animus and desire to make sure that we are, that — that we are holding this president to account.”

“Animus” is a strong word for the progressive unrest within the party, and the selection of that word could easily be interpreted as having been intended to send a message to the Speaker. Which is part of why Karl immediately asked about sending an actual message to the Speaker."

statement doesn't seem that harsh, it is politics after all

10. Being used against the leader of her own party,

it is harsh.

Are the other freshman reps saying these types of things? Are they being given the same exposure and platform? This strikes me as a media driven "conflict."
