[Ed. – Pelosi could do the country a bigger favor, but she would be aghast if someone suggested it to her.]
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi allowed Rolling Stone to use the U.S. Capitol for a photo shoot recently, and during video interviews with the magazine, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Jahana Hayes used the moment to denounce President Trump.
Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez dismissed Trump, with the former demanding he not run for re-election, and the latter claiming she doesn’t want to give him more attention.
“If I had to say something to Trump, I probably wouldn’t say anything, because I don’t think that it’s worth the extra attention,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Pelosi was more pointed in her response.
“Mr. President, do the country a favor, don’t run,” the House Speaker said.
Hayes struck a more conciliatory tone.
