Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has joined her fellow radical Democrats in firing back at Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who last week took a swipe at the far-left wing of the party over their lack of influence in Congress.

During an interview with the New York Times last week, Pelosi blasted socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her clique of progressive Dems for being popular on social media while lacking any meaningful political following.

Speaker Pelosi criticized the influence of the four freshmen lawmakers who voted against the $4.6 billion border bill signed into law last week by President Trump.

Pelosi told columnist Maureen Dowd of the NYT these representatives wield little influence, saying:

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world.

"But they didn’t have any following.

"They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got."

The Democrat leader was referring to Ilhan Omar, Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).

The four freshmen voted against the border bill, claiming the proposal did not go far enough and was simply “throwing more money” at the Trump administration’s "human rights abuses," according to the Washington Post.

According to Fox News, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to explain to Pelosi, 79, that “public ‘whatever’ is called public sentiment.”

“And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country,” she continued.

Omar wrote in response to Ocasio-Cortez, “Patetico! You know they’re just salty about WHO is wielding the power to shift “public sentiment” these days, sis. Sorry not sorry.”

The emergency legislation, required to ease overcrowded, often harsh conditions at U.S. holding facilities for migrants seeking asylum, mostly from Central American nations like Honduras and El Salvador, passed by a bipartisan 305-102 vote.

Pelosi said at the time that the bill would allow resources to get to children held at the border.

“As we pass the Senate bill, we will do so with a battle cry as to how we go forward to protect children in a way that truly honors their dignity and worth,” she wrote in a letter to lawmakers.

The New York Times’ headline read, “House Passes Senate Border Bill in Striking Defeat for Pelosi.”
