Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, twitted:

Madam Speaker, welcome to the true nature of identity politics - where you’re accused of being racist for no reason at all, and where intellectually lazy insults are used against you as a way to replace substantive debate of your argument or idea. Invalid consumer key/secret in configuration

I view PELOSI and AOC as a generational gap of governing......Pelosi has the deep background and perhaps wisdom of age.....AOC has bold and brash ideas (the imagery that comes to mind is a young colt romping thru range grass and a mare quietly grazing the landscape) wisdom of age
vs. brilliant but unbridled (and unproven) ideas.....nature of change and evolving.

I see AOC more as a Jesse Jackson, a bomb thrower more than a serious politician. She will feather a cozy nest for herself in her district, continue to spout off, and will achieve nothing.

Pelosi, has crawled her way up through the glass ceiling, and is a major power player. She is very well known for her fundraising skills. Will AOC need her to stay in office? Maybe.
