Steny Hoyer Goes Off on AOC, Omar, Tlaib

***Help Expose AOC***

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) hit back at the three most prominent members of the Democrats’ freshman class when asked by Fox News about the push to impeach Trump: “We’ve got 62 new (Democratic) members. Not three.” (Hot Air)

Hoyer apparently was referring to Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who regularly have fought the Trump administration’s policies since entering Congress.

Although Ocasio-Cortez was the only member of the three who came out yesterday in disagreement of Pelosi saying impeachment is off the table, it appears Hoyer wants to preemptively squash any attempt by the far-Left’s three favorites at making their colleagues in purple to reddish districts even more vulnerable in 2020.

He’s reportedly not alone in his frustration.

USA TODAY talked to more than a dozen Democratic members, aides and strategists across the political spectrum and found there is broad agreement on the need to expand background checks for gun owners, protect immigrants and combat climate change. But some moderates say that the approach Ocasio-Cortez has taken on these topics has been unrealistic and it has left little room for the bipartisan compromise they promised voters during midterm campaigns.

They are also irritated at Ocasio-Cortez’s willingness to use her personal platform – nearly 3.5 million followers on Twitter and a nationwide following – to go after members of her own party. Even House progressives who like her policies don’t know what to make of her approach.
