Two members of this year’s radically far-left freshman class of congressional Democrats took turns Tuesday cattily attacking White House counselor Kellyanne Conway for mocking them. One of them even went so far as to use a racist slur against her.
Ironically, the tiff started after Conway used a brief appearance on Fox News early Tuesday morning to talk about the “huge catfight” occurring between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the freshman class.
“Those four female Democrats that Nancy Pelosi is brushing back, I think they are all freshman members — a major meow moment brushing back in a huge catfight, really ridiculing them, and they voted against the democratic aid package,” she said.
“They preen around going to these detention centers and saying ‘oh my God, look what’s happening,’ and then they vote against $4.6 billion worth of aid.”
Listen, via FNC’s “Fox & Friends“:
She made the remarks days after Pelosi slammed this year’s notoriously power hungry freshmen — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley — for being too big for their britches and living within “their Twitter world” versus the real world.
After Conway’s “huge catfight” remark went viral Tuesday, she tweeted the story out to her own Twitter followers:

To be clear, a catfight is defined as “a fight between women,” and technically, the ongoing feud between Pelosi — a congressional veteran with 30+ years on her belt — and the four insolent freshmen who are constantly questioning her authority is indeed a catfight.
Nevertheless, AOC responded first by chastising Conway for her alleged sexism …
“‘Catfight’ is the sexist term Republicans use when two adult women happen to disagree with each other,” she wrote. “The reason they find it so novel &exciting is bc the GOP haven’t elected enough women themselves to see that it can, in fact, be a normal occurrence in a functioning democracy.”
As usual, the congresswomen was making up definitions. Merriam-Webster, the Collins English Dictionary and the Oxford Dictionary all define catfight as a fight between women.
Social media users tried to point this out to her, not that she listened:

https://t.co/t7GAXkwZef. So should we get rid of the word from the dictionary if it is sexist??? Bc what happened is the EXACT definition of the word… “an intense fight or argument especially between two women”

As if AOC’s factually inaccurate tweet wasn’t bad enough, Pressley jumped into the fray roughly two hours later by rudely labeling Conway “Distraction Becky” and demanding in a seemingly threatening manner that she “keep my name out of your lying mouth.”
“oh hi Distraction Becky. 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,” she wrote.
“Becky” is a racist anti-white slur used to describe a “stereotypical, basic white girl; obsessed with Starbucks, Ugg boots, and trying to have a bigger butt,” according to Urban Dictionary.
While the White House counselor chose to just ignore Pressley’s attack, social media users clapped back with fury on her behalf:
.@KellyannePolls oh hi Distraction Becky. 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. https://t.co/dS8saIssX8

How very racist of you.

Ayanna Pressley shouldn’t be disrespectful and racist to Kellyanne Conway.
if Democrat Ayanna Pressley is against Kellyanne Conway’s boss (President Trump) for putting immigrant children in cages, how about this from Obama, hypocrite.#WednesdayWisdomhttps://t.co/R8S2WO05MN

Pretty typical. Dems Congresswomen of “color” can get away w/being/act/talk racist. But when the table turns, specially when being challenged of what they say/claim and cannot respond objectively, they scream and accuse the other side of “RACISM” to shut down debate or convo

Really classy. If that was done to Obama all you hypocrites would be saying she was racist and demonstrating in the streets. Shows how deranged you people are. I wonder how you would treat Jesus Christ.

Oh wow, racist much?
— onedelta10t (@onedelta10t) July 10, 2019
She literally called her Becky. Is it ok to call Ayanna Shinequa? I would be called a racist if I did. See how this works hypocrite?

Calling white women “Becky” oh yeah I forgot its ok to be racist as long as you feel you are a leftist.

@Twitter should review @AyannaPressley’s racist tweet as it violates Twitter’s rules. “Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race …” pic.twitter.com/4twIKfPlsN

They also rightly pointed out that the child separation policy was the invention of former President Barack Hussein Obama.
