Summary

“These people,” said in reference to people of color, is a colloquialism for being uppity, for not being grateful.And then after Ocasio-Cortez called Pelosi's remarks disrespectful, President Donald Trump joined Pelosi to vilify the Squad: “Why don’t you go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came?Trump’s racism is vile, but the fact remains that Pelosi paved the way for Trump to make his racist, nativist statement, and it was an unforced error on her part.Pelosi’s public prosecution of her dissatisfaction with these junior women of color in Congress has diminished her standing and strength as the leader of the House. For months she has taken catty swipes at various popular new members of the Congress known colloquially as "the squad," blithely squandering the momentum with progressives responsible for the gains Democrats made in the midterms less than a year ago.And Pelosi’s dismissive and disparaging statements have now not only put her in the position of being a white woman chastising women of color, but also of being deemed “Not Racist” by Trump during an extended racist tirade against those members.
