‘There’s Trouble in Pelosi Paradise’: Conway Mocks Contention Between ‘Radical Freshmen’ and Moderate Dems

@MeetThePress/Twitter

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway went after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the House Democrats, putting them on blast by pointing out the growing divide between the moderate members of the party and the “radical freshmen” that have garnered much media attention since their debut in the national spotlight.

During an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press,” Conway — who has served as counselor to President Donald Trump since 2017 — extended another invitation to House Democrats to meet the president at the White House and discuss efforts to end the crisis at the southern border.

“The offer stands,” Conway fired back at Todd when asked about inviting the Democrats to the White House. “The invitation is open.”

Conway then pointed out that Democratic leadership had met with President Trump “several times” before and during the shutdown centered around the border situation.

She continued on to take aim at the House Democrats, claiming that there is “a great deal of frustration” between the more “rank-and-file” Democrats and the “radical freshmen” such as Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), whose Saturday tweet claiming Democratic leadership used her and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) to “show” diversity in the Democratic Party Conway brought up.

Watch the video here:

“They’re very frustrated. They’ve been to the White House, they’ve talked to people like me, quietly, saying that they wish the radical freshmen who get all the magazine covers and all the ink and airtime — I guess they’re really frustrated with leadership today, though, because, overnight or yesterday, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib tweeted that they’re so tired of being used to show that the party’s diverse and they can’t get a seat at the table, can’t get their policy issues forward.”

Conway then slammed Pelosi as having “trouble” in paradise and invited the House Speaker to join them in “fix[ing] immigration.”

Tlaib defended Omar’s controversial September 11 comments earlier this week, accusing Omar’s critics of being “racist.” The Michigan GOP responded by tweeting that they were “angry” because Omar “talked about 9/11 like it was nothing” and that it was “unbelievable” that Tlaib would say they are upset because they are “racist,” as IJR Red previously reported.

They realize that as a 3rd, Socialist party they will go nowhere and have hitched their wagons to a party which already had Leftist leanings.

Now the Dims are under siege because too many entitled idiots want free shit and have the votes to do something about it.
