Pelosi takes jab at AOC over attention to Twitter followers

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took an indirect swipe at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Monday, saying passing legislation should take priority over amassing Twitter followers.

Pelosi said Democrats should fight for the “boldest common denominator.”
