Pelosi promotes Omar, AOC, HayesA conservative pundit and former Republican leader says the feud between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and upstart freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will continue to grow.

Pelosi (D) recently went on the warpath against President Trump, claiming his aim is to "make America white again." But Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is accusing Pelosi of singling out newly-elected women of color. The House speaker's feud intensified with Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) following the four leftists' opposition to the border funding bill.

During an appearance on the Fox News Channel, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R) weighed in on the ongoing battle.

"This is going to become a bigger and bigger war because the three or four or five members on the hard left are genuine radicals who see themselves on a mission to change America," he submits. "They see change in the Democratic Party as the first step in that mission."

Gingrich

The former House speaker says Pelosi has the upper hand for now.

"The four or five people who are at the core of this have to get to be 10 ... 15, or 20 to matter," Gingrich explains. "Otherwise what will happen is [Pelosi] will totally isolate them. She presently makes sure that nothing they want gets done. She will eliminate their ability to participate, and she'll do everything she can to weaken them. If they get up to 10 ... 15, or 20 members, then she has a much bigger problem."

An effort to find more radicals to challenge incumbent Democrats in primaries next year is already afoot.
