The Democrat Civil War of 2019 just kicked up a notch.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just sent some major shade to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and AOC’s leftie allies are losing their minds.

In a “60 Minutes” interview, correspondent Lesley Stahl pointed out the different groups within the House Democratic caucus. “You have these wings — AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl said.

Pelosi abruptly interrupted her, smirking: That’s like five people.”

OUCH!

Stahl corrected the snarky remark, saying that the “progressive group is more than five.”

“Well, I’m progressive — I’m a progressive, yeah,” Pelosi responded.

Clearly, cud-chewing Nancy is not impressed with how AOC’s Socalists are slowing taking over her caucus beneath her feet, causing a huge fracture just when they can least afford it: with the 2020 elections just around the bend.

But she was not done. Asked about the popularity of Socialism among Democrats, Pelosi instantly snapped back:

“(Socialism) is not the view of the Democratic Party”:

Oh really?

The Congressional Progressive Caucus has 98 members and is the second largest group of Democrats in the Congress. Ocasio-Cortez is one of the group’s most recognizable freshmen members.

But the “five” Pelosi was most likely referring to are AOC, Muslim Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashidi Tlaib

, and Black Northeastern Reps. Jahanna Hayes and Ayanna Pressley — all freshman, all far-far-lefties who have given Pelosi and her Majority Leader Steney Hoyer fits over their Green New Deal fiasco, anti-Semitism and Socialsm.

It’s not Pelosi’s first dig at AOC. In a recent interview with USA Today, the House Speaker pointed out that votes are more significant than Twitter followers — a remark that was also interpreted to be a dig at AOC.

“While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have a large number of votes on the floor of the House,” Pelosi said.

AOC’s Twitter posse was FURIOUS at Queen Nancy for her numerous slights tonight:

The BIG problem for Pelosi is that most Democrats DO want Socialism, and they are willing to take her down to get it.
