Dem Congresswoman To Kellyanne Conway: ‘Keep My Name Out Of Your Lying Mouth’
Democratic Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) tore into White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday after the alternative facts evangelist took aim at the freshman Democrat for voting against a President Trump-backed border aid bill.
“.@KellyannePolls oh hi Distraction Becky,” Pressley said in a direct tweet to Conway. “Remember that time your boss tore babies from their mothers’ arms and threw them in cages? Yeah take a seat and keep my name out of your lying mouth.”
Her tweet came in response to a tweet Conway made in which she mocked a disagreement between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Pressley and other progressive Democrats over a border aid bill recently passed by Congress as a “major meow mashup.”
“Major Meow Mashup with @SpeakerPelosi brushing back anti-humanitarian border aid fresh-women @AOC @IlhanMN @AyannaPressley @RashidaTlaib,” Conway said in the tweet, which also linked back to a writeup on comments she made in an interview with Fox News mocking the spat between the Democrats.
The back-and-forth comes after Pelosi commented in an interview with The New York Times published over the weekend about Pressley’s — as well as Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) decision not to support a House-passed spending measure that sought help migrants at the border.
In an interview with the Boston NPR affiliate WGBH that aired on Monday, Pressley said she voted to oppose the measure over what she felt was a lack of accountability for Border Patrol.
“I sat at the table and worked to improve that House bill to get in protections that were not there around health standards, and to offer some metrics of transparency and accountability,” she said.

We can expect more disagreements among progressives and moderate Democrats. The difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Democrats tend to be independent thinkers, while GOP lawmakers seem to be just a rubber stamp of their leadership.
