House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave an extensive interview to “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday night, and one of the highlights was when correspondent Lesley Stahl asked her about the party’s future leadership.
“Why does AOC [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.] complain that you have not been grooming younger people for leadership?” Stahl asked.
Pelosi responded, “I don’t know. You’ll have to ask her—because we are.”
Stahl seemed to be taken aback for a moment and said, “That was kind of sharp, kind of dismissing her.”
