Omar wrote in response to Ocasio-Cortez, "Patetico!"

"That public "whatever" is called public sentiment".

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thrilled the audience at a New York City drag show on Friday night, addressing the crowd through cheers.

"All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world", Pelosi told the Times.

"It's all cases, if you look, people who came from unbelievable poverty, they had no water, they had no anything where they came from, those are people that are very happy with what's going on, because relatively speaking, they're in much better shape right now", he said.

Today, a coalition of lawmakers in the USA, led by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Senator Bernie Sanders, and Representative Earl Blumenauer, are introducing a resolution in the House and the Senate that would add the United States to the list of countries that have legally recognized the threat of climate change.

Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti also joined the action, calling Pelosi's attacks on her young Democratic colleagues "baffling".

Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends", House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) acknowledged the "chaos" underway inside the House Democratic caucus, which he said was posing problems for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Omar was responding to Ocasio Cortez's clapback to a dig by Pelosi in a column Saturday by New York Times writer Maureen Dowd.

"You know they're just salty about World Health Organization is wielding the power to shift "public sentiment" these days, sis", Omar wrote on Twitter.

"And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country", she continued.

"It formulation we received't let on an routine basis of us be brushed aside". "While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what's important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House", Pelosi said.

What's not up for debate - given all of that evidence - is that Pelosi is, how to say it, skeptical of AOC and her allies. "She ought to quiet be taught from her", the freshman New Yorker turned the Speaker's words in opposition to her. But activists-particularly those from The Climate Mobilization, a nonprofit pushing for a "WWII-scale climate mobilization" to combat the climate emergency-have made it clear that nations now need to step up. He also accused the Democratic Party of abandoning Israel, saying the party "has been co-opted by people who promote rank, anti-Semitic rhetoric". House Speaker Pelosi said President Donald Trump wants to add a citizenship question to next year's Census because he wants to "make America white again". It was the bill passed on an overwhelming bipartisan vote in the Senate.
