House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) launched another insult at progressive upstart Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) during an interview Monday.
"When we won this election it wasn't in districts like mine," Pelosi explained, "or Alexandria's, however, she's a wonderful member of Congress I think all of our colleagues will attest."
Pelosi was speaking at the London School of Economics and Political Science when she was asked about the popularity of Democratic Socialist Ocasio-Cortez.
"But those are districts that are solidly democratic. This glass of water would win with a 'd' next to its name in those districts," she said to laughter from the audience.
"And not to diminish the exuberance and the personality and the rest of Alexandria and the other members," she continued, "but when I said three, they were talking about three that were getting a good deal of press on it."
"But the 43 districts, we won 43 net gain of 40, were right down the middle," she concluded.
This follows upon another jab that made headlines when Pelosi dismissively said that the progressive wing that Ocasio-Cortez led was comprised of about five people.
While the far left progressive policies of Ocasio-Cortez and her dexterity with social media have catapulted her to the forefront of Democratic media coverage, more establishment Democrats have criticized her for trying to remake the party in her radical image.
