On Tuesday, White House Counselor to the President, Kellyanne Conway, tweeted a couple of articles on Twitter that involved Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Freshmen representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilahn Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).
Conway mocked a disagreement between Pelosi and the progressive Democrats over a border aid bill recently passed by Congress as a “major meow mashup.”
“Major Meow Mashup with @SpeakerPelosi brushing back anti-humanitarian border aid fresh-women @AOC @IlhanMN @AyannaPressley @RashidaTlaib,” Kellyanne Conway said in the tweet, which also linked to an article about comments she made in an interview with Fox News mocking the spat between the Democrats.
“Those four female Democrats that Nancy Pelosi is brushing back, I think they are all freshman members,” Conway said in the interview. A major ‘meow moment’– brushing back in a huge catfight, really ridiculing them — and they voted against the Democratic aid package.”
This comes after Pelosi said in an interview published over the weekend that Reps. Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley “have their public whatever and their Twitter world” but “didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got,” Pelosi said, referring to the four lawmakers’ decision not to support a House-passed spending measure to help migrants at the border.
Rep. Pressley, triggered, fired back at the White House Counselor on Tuesday after Conway took aim at the freshman Democrat for voting against a President Trump-backed border aid bill. (Continued Below)
Pressley wrote, “@KellyannePolls oh hi Distraction Becky. Remember that time your boss tore babies from their mothers’ arms and threw them in cages? Yeah take a seat and keep my name out of your lying mouth.”
Next, came Rep. Ocasio-Cortez defending her pal Pressley and said on Twitter, “Trust me when I say you don’t want to get caught in @AyannaPressley’s righteous fire. Kellyanne is way over her head defending caging children & families in conditions that have killed almost 30 people on her admin’s watch. She may play games with people’s lives, but we don’t.”
She added, “Catfight” is the sexist term Republicans use when two adult women happen to disagree with each other. The reason they find it so novel &exciting is bc the GOP haven’t elected enough women themselves to see that it can, in fact, be a normal occurrence in a functioning democracy.” (Continued Below)
However, Candace Owens didn’t hold back and wiped out the Democratic freshmen congresswomen in a series of tweets Wednesday.
Candace Owens fired off: “This is ghetto, stupid and racist. ‘Keep my name out your lying mouth’— is street talk. Grow up. Why don’t you instead explain to @KellyannePolls why ALL OF YOU were SILENT about this when Obama was in office? Stop using children to mask your senseless hate for Trump, clown.”
“All of you ‘freshman congresswomen’ represent a nasty stereotype of what many think all POC are—trash-talking, emotional, uneducated thugs. SHAME ON YOU. Your thuggery & disrespect will not come to represent those of us who are breaking chains from your slaveship of a Party,” she continued.
“Imagine if when Obama was in office, a white congressman referred to a black person on Obama’s administration as “distraction Shaniqua”, and another white congressman applauded it as “righteous fire”. Hey, @AOC! You and @AyannaPressley are racist pieces of shit,” Owens declared.
Lastly, Owens said, “I am NOT a fan of @SpeakerPelosi but the absolute despicable behavior from @AOC @AyannaPressley and @IlhanMN congresswoman should disgust EVERYONE on BOTH sides of the aisle. Congress is not a gang block. This trashy, thug-like bully behavior needs to be called out & SHUT DOWN.” (Continued Below)
