In a surprise announcement, Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti and communications director Corbin Trent are both leaving her DC office to work with other entities. Trent is planning to leave the office to work on Ocasio-Cortez`s 2020 reelection campaign as communications director. Chakrabarti is a controversial chief of staff who sent out a now-deleted tweet that moderate Democrats are the “New Southern Democrats.” He went on, “They certainly seem hell bent to do the black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the 40s.”
His recent tweet seemed to upset Pelosi, and other Democrats when he said, “Can we stop calling the Blue Dog Caucus “fiscally conservative but socially liberal?” I missed the part of fiscal conservativeness or social liberalness the includes wasting $4.5 billion of taxpayer money to put kids in concentration camps.” Pelosi called the original tweet “offensive” and held a closed-door meeting with Democratic lawmakers who were furious at Ocasio-Cortez over her staffer and his behavior. However, the center of the Democratic Party is caving in as they are viewed, within the walls of the party as being oppressors and racist because they disagree with the Far Left Wing of the party. Currently the Far Left of the Democrat Party is representing the entire caucus and are becoming the face of the party as Pelosi and Biden fade away.
