Pelosi has been sparring with Pressley and fellow Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (Minn.), who all recently voted against an immigration bill that gives billions to Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, two agencies under fire for the horrific conditions at migrant detention centers.
Earlier on Tuesday, Conway called the tension between Pelosi and the four other high-profile female congresswomen a “major meow moment” and a “huge catfight,” two sexist phrases used to characterize arguments between women.
“[O]h hi Distraction Becky. Remember that time your boss tore babies from their mothers’ arms and threw them in cages?” Pressley tweeted at Conway, referring to the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy.
“Yeah take a seat and keep my name out of your lying mouth.”
