“One big happy family” – Pelosi gives stern words to progressives in closed door meeting

July 11, 2019

On Wednesday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi gave some stern words to progressives in a closed-door meeting, asking them to air their grievances in private rather than through Twitter.

“So, again, you got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it,” Pelosi said to Democratic lawmakers, according to a source. “But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just OK.”

Pelosi’s comments come after a recent spat between her and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her freshmen colleagues after the House Speaker expressed doubts as to how much influence those lawmakers have within the party.

According to Democrats present in the meeting, Pelosi’s statements seemed directed towards co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus Representative Mark Pocan (D-Wi.) who recently said moderate Democrats were part of the “Child Abuse Caucus” for supporting the emergency border package passed by the Senate.

“Since when did the Problem Solvers Caucus become the Child Abuse Caucus?” Pocan tweeted. “Wouldn’t they want to at least fight against contractors who run deplorable facilities? Kids are the only ones who could lose today.”

A spokesperson for Pelosi said her comments were regarding Twitter use in general and not directed towards a specific person or their conduct. According to Pocan, who was not present in the meeting, Pelosi personally called him to apologize about any misunderstandings caused by her statements.

“She didn’t even know about my tweet, and she wasn’t referring to it,” said Pocan. “She’s not a shy individual, if she wants to tell you something, she’ll tell you. She actually called to say just the opposite.”

During the meeting, Pelosi also defended moderate Democrats and their decision to support the Senate version of the emergency border spending bill, adding that moderates are critical for the party to keep their House majority. She asked members to publicly criticize her instead of going after specific members of the party.

“I’m here to help the children when it’s easy and when it’s hard,” Pelosi said. “Some of you are here to make a beautiful pate, but we’re making sausage most of the time.”

“We are a family, and every family has its moments,” Pelosi added.

“One big happy family,” said Representative Mark Rose (D-N.Y.) as he departed the meeting. “We cannot allow this to devolve into a reality TV show. This is not high school.”
