House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Has a few humiliating words for New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., and other members of the so-called “squad,” according to details of a forthcoming book on the California Lawmaker.
According to excerpts from the book written by award-winning journalist Susan Page, Pelosi adopted a “childish tone” when discussing Ocasio-Cortez and gave the following advice to team members:
“You are not an individual show. This is the United States Congress,” Axios reported.
An excerpt from the book published by USA Today – where Page is the Washington bureau chief – recounts an interview that Page conducted with Pelosi in July 2019, after his argument with the Squad “exploded.”
“Her anger at the four new progressive women in Congress was palpable,” Page wrote.

As previously reported by Fox News, at a press conference in July 2019, Pelosi brushed aside questions about President Donald Trump’s efforts to characterize progressive squad members as the face of the Democratic Party, saying “don’t let’s not waste our time on this “.
At the time, team members were angry with Pelosi, who they said set them apart because they were women of color. Pelosi had commented on the group’s social media prowess as it protested against an emergency border aid bill.
Spokesmen for Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez did not return Fox News’ request for comment on published details of the book.
