Nancy Pelosi has snapped at a reporter when asked about claims she had targeted “women of colour” who spoke out on social media.
At a meeting of Democratic members of the House of Representatives earlier this week, the speaker had reportedly issued a warning to those who were using social media to speak out critically of other members of the party.
“We’re a family and we have our moments,” Ms Pelosi told colleagues, according to the Associated Press. “You got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it. But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just OK.”
