Pelosi word 'skerp' as hy gevra word oor AOC tydens '60 Minutes 'onderhoud

Huisspreker Nancy Pelosi gave an extensive interview to “60 Minute” wat Sondagaand uitgesaai is, en een van die hoogtepunte was toe korrespondent Lesley Stahl haar uitgevra het oor die toekomstige leierskap van die party.

Stahl het daarop gewys dat Pelosi wel is 80 jaar oud en Huismeerderheidsleier Steny Hoyer is 81, en sy het gevra waarom daar geen duidelike erfgename in die party is nie. Veral sedert “Die groep,” die groep jong progressiewe, beveel so 'n groot aanhang op sosiale media.

Pelosi told Stahl that the question was essentially based on a false premise. Sy het geantwoord dat partyleiers toekomstige leierskap versorg het, en miskien was sy nie daarvan bewus nie.

“Hoekom doen AOC [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.] kla dat jy nie jonger mense vir leierskap versorg het nie?” Vra Stahl.

Het Pelosi geantwoord, “Ek weet nie. U sal haar moet vra — want ons is.”

Dit lyk asof Stahl vir 'n oomblik verras en gesê het, “Dit was nogal skerp, soort van ontslag.”

Pelosi said that was not her intention and said AOC isvery effective, as are others—many other members in our caucus that the press doesn’t pay attention to. But they are there and they are building support for what comes next.

Ocasio-Cortez told The Intercept in an interview published in December that Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer should no longer hold the leadership positions in the party that they do. She said the party has little interest in grooming future generations.

I think one of the things that I have struggled with — I think that a lot of people struggle with — is [daardie] the internal dynamics of the House has made it such that there’s very little option for succession if you will,” sy het gese.

Pelosi once also caught the media’s attention when she seemed to downplay Ocasio-Cortez’s victory over Rep. Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary in 2016. She said aglass of water with a Dcould win in these Democrat strongholds.
