Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has unveiled a new conspiracy theory, which involves her accusing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of trying to keep her hidden.
During an interview on Wednesday with The New Yorker Radio Hour, Ocasio-Cortez suggested Pelosi and Democratic Party leaders assigned her to the committees to keep her from focusing on other issues.
Consider that: AOC thinks Pelosi assigned her to committees -- which she requested to be on -- to keep her too busy.
She's actually complaining about having work to do on committees that she asked to be on.
“I was assigned to some of the busiest committees and four subcommittees. So my hands are full,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Sometimes I wonder if [Democratic leadership is] trying to keep me busy.”
Ocasio-Cortez was placed on both the Financial Services and Oversight and Reform committees after she lobbied leadership for a seat on both.
AOC's mind-blowing comments are in response to her public spat with Pelosi.
During an interview last weekend, Pelosi dismissed Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow progressive congresswomen as “four people” who "didn’t have any following."
"Without that unity, we are playing completely into the hands of the other people," Pelosi said.
"Think twice," she said. "Actually, don't think twice. Think once."
Ocasio-Cortez and her liberal allies responded by taking to Twitter to slam Pelosi and said using social media is how they “actually achieve[s] meaningful change in this country.”
Pelosi held a closed-door meeting on Wednesday with all of the progressive members of her caucus and slammed them for airing their complaints in public.
“You got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it,” Pelosi said. “Do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just ok.”
Afterwards, AOC again aired her grievances.
"I think we became the party of hemming and hawing and trying to be all things to everybody," said Ocasio-Cortez.
"We're too often afraid of our own values and sticking up for them. ... And so one of the things that I wanted to do was to hold a strong line," she said. "I don't think we should be afraid of being the party of FDR. I don't think we should be afraid of being the party of working people."
While all of this was taking place, Ocasio-Cortez got hit with a bombshell lawsuit.
