One of the freshmen congresswomen frequently mentioned in such conversations called her out in a scathing tweet, which Democratic strategist Antjuan Seawright said is the type of energy the party needs.

“What you saw from [U.S. Rep.] Ayanna Pressley [D-Mass.] is what I think we have to see more from Democrats,” he said in an interview this week. “And that’s pushing back and punching back at the recklessness that comes out of this administration and some of Trump’s number-one disciples.”

After Conway described the reported rift between House leadership and a quartet of freshmen lawmakers, Pressley called her “Distraction Becky” in response.

“Remember that time your boss tore babies from their mothers’ arms and threw them in cages?” she tweeted. “Yeah take a seat and keep my name out of your lying mouth.”
