House Democrats are fed up with the “squad” and especially peeved because they chose to play the race card. The caucus has made it clear they stand with Pelosi in this feud and they fire back at AOC’s Chief of Staff in a very amusing way.
The squad includes AOC (D-NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).
In the latest skirmish, House Dems responded to a tweet written two weeks ago by AOC’s Chief of Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, about Rep. Sharice Davids (D-KS). She is a Native American.
I think the point still stands. I don’t think people have to be personally racist to enable a racist system. And the same could even be said of the Southern Democrats. I don’t believe Sharice is a racist person, but her votes are showing her to enable a racist system.
The House Dems responded by playing the race card, kind of like the fabulous freshman four they played on Nancy Pelosi.
Who is this guy and why is he explicitly singling out a Native American woman of color? Her name is Congresswoman Davids, not Sharice. She is a phenomenal new member who flipped a red seat blue. Keep👏🏾Her👏🏾Name👏🏾Out👏🏾Of👏🏾Your👏🏾Mouth.

Conservatives find the ongoing feud to be extremely entertaining and several responded to the tweet.
The Federalist’s Sean Davis responded: “The Twitter account of the House Democrat caucus just dropped a nuke on AOC’s chief of staff. LOL.”
Fox News’ Lisa Boothe: The Democrat Party is officially going nuclear on AOC and it is a thing of beauty.
The Washington Examiner’s T. Beckett Adams: I don’t want this to end.
“You guys really don’t want the oval office huh?”
“Nancy Pelosi: “@HouseDemocrats official account.”
“No, no, no, no, all wrong. You’re supposed to accuse the House Dems of promoting white supremacy. No arguing about the rules. Stay woke.”
“This is fantastic.”
Looks like AOC may have overestimated her import to the Democratic Party this time. Glad to see the House Democrats aren’t listening to Pelosi and are continuing their feud in the public eye. Hope it continues. It is rather sweet.
