Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) took aim at White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday for describing the back-and-forth between the freshman representative and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as a “catfight.”

“’Catfight is the sexist term Republicans use when two adult women happen to disagree with each other,” Ocasio Cortez tweeted in response. “The reason they find it so novel &exciting is bc the GOP haven’t elected enough women themselves to see that it can, in fact, be a normal occurrence in a functioning democracy.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Conway made the comment after Pelosi said Ocasio-Cortez and three other freshmen from the caucus’s progressive wing, the only members to vote against a border aid bill backed by House Democrats, “didn’t have any following.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded by tweeting, “That public ‘whatever’ is called public sentiment. And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country.”

On Monday, Ocasio-Cortez faced criticism that she had insulted Pelosi, but she pushed back tweeting, “Having respect for ourselves doesn’t mean we lack respect for her. It means we won’t let everyday people be dismissed.”
