    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reportedly ripped on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) during an interview for a new book, saying that the far-left lawmaker nearly cost Democrats their majority in the House of Representatives.

    Pelosi's latest jab at Ocasio-Cortez is featured in the new book, "This Will Not Pass," which is slated to be released in early May.

    Punchbowl News reported:

    Pelosi privately blames progressives for nearly costing Democrats the House and said AOC and Jayapal were fighting to be "queen bee" of the left. "In a few strictly confidential conversations she pointed a finger leftward. Pelosi told one senior lawmaker that Democrats had alienated Asian and Hispanic immigrants with loose talk of socialism. In some of the same communities, the Italian Catholic speaker said, Democrats had not been careful enough about the way they spoke about abortion among new Americans who were devout people of faith."

    []During the infrastructure vote, Pelosi was angry "and in private she vented about the progressive blockade that had forced her to cancel the infrastructure vote. ... She told another House Democrat that Pramila Jayapal and Ocasio-Cortez were vying to be the 'queen bee' of the left, but that their reward might be serving in the House minority after the next election."


    Pelosi also took a shot at Ocasio-Cortez during interviews that she gave for a new biography by USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page.

    Pelosi spoke ten separate times with Page for the book, scheduled for release April 20. During the interviews, Pelosi took shots at several prominent members of her own party including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. She mocks Ocasio-Cortez specifically for her youth and apparent ignorance, according to Axios:

    Pelosi unloads on the Squad, at one point adopting a child-like voice when discussing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and offers the Squad this blunt advice: "You're not a one-person show. This is the Congress of the United States."

    Pelosi has repeatedly mocked Ocasio-Cortez and the other three far-left House Democrats, telling The New York Times in 2019: "All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn't have any following. They're four people and that's how many votes they got."

    Pelosi also mocked Ocasio-Cortez in an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" in April of 2019, while dismissing the far-left wing of the party.

    "So you are contending with a group in Congress: Over here on the left flank are these self-described socialists, on the right, these moderates," host Lesley Stahl said. "And you yourself said that you're the only one who can unify everybody. And the question is, can you?"

    "By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center," Pelosi responded. "That we have to go down the mainstream."

    "You have these wings - AOC, and her group on one side -" Lesley responded.

    "That's like five people," Pelosi fired back.

    Pelosi also previously told an audience that a "glass of water" with a "D" next to it "would win" in Ocasio-Cortez's district.
