BLUE ON BLUE: Steny Hoyer ZINGS AOC, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib at AIPAC

SHOTS FIRED!
In his speech at AIPAC on Sunday, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer took a not-so-veiled shot at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, telling the crowd “By the way there are 62 freshmen Democrats. You hear me? 62, not 3”:
"There are 62 freshman Democrats. Not three," Steny Hoyer says at AIPAC. Presumably he is talking about @AOC, @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib.

Huge applause.

Of course, Hoyer could have taken this shot at Omar when it counted, but he didn’t:
And we expect some significant blowback on this once D.C. take a break from the Mueller report:
P.S. Don’t bet against the establishment:
Hoyer and the old guard in the Democratic Party leadership stand with AIPAC while attacking emerging leaders like @RashidaTlaib, @AOC, & @IlhanMN for fighting for a progressive and humane foreign policy.

But as 2020 Democrats skip AIPAC, Hoyer & the old guard have already lost.

Other Dems, however, will like it:

As for AOC, Omar and Tlaib, no response . . .yet.
