The unholy progressive trinity of Reps. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) just suffered a major blow. They are out and Congress is waving goodbye.
In a dramatic reversal, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi decided to support President Trump’s $4.5 billion border funding bill, thereby sending a message and shutting down the socialist left in her own party.
We will see how long this holds, however, for now, the likes of Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, and Tlaib have been shut down. It seems obvious that Pelosi and other establishment fixtures got tired of their grandstanding.
Just before the vote, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “Under no circumstances should the House vote for a McConnell-only bill w/ no negotiation with Democrats. Hell no.”
Omar also got in her two cents and claimed that voting for the bill “is a vote to keep kids in cages and terrorize immigrant communities,” which couldn’t be more absurd or untrue.
“If you see the Senate bill as an option, then you don’t believe in basic human rights,” added Tlaib in a tweet of her own. Is it any wonder why Pelosi said ‘enough’ and put these gadflies in their place?
