Democrats are divided and in disarray as infighting between so-called moderates and ‘Squad’ extremists has intensified.
Democrat Rep. Conor Lamb and AOC are fighting in the pages of The New York Times, while Politico reports that the Squad “isn’t apologizing for wanting to yank money away” from the police despite some Democrat complaints that calls to defund the police cost them House races across the country.
The Democrat Party’s calls to defund the police were not just an election issue, Democrats are running full speed ahead on defunding the police.

No wonder more Democrats like Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) are complaining about her Party’s message.

Meanwhile, AOC’s former chief of staff and founder of Justice Democrats cranked up the disarray and infighting by calling for Pelosi to step down after House Democrats’ dismal showing this cycle. (So far, Republicans have flipped NINE seats in the House.)
In any other country, Pelosi would be stepping down right now.https://t.co/AOhXUvS6Ox

And Team Biden is now taking potshots in Politico at the DSCC ahead of crucial runoffs in Georgia: “There is significant concern, this unbelievable feeling against the DSCC about how much money was spent in these Senate races only to not win.”
Underscoring the Democrats’ top-down problem, Joe Biden’s calls for unity are as phony as a $3 bill. Just last night, Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) thought it was the right time to compare President Trump to Hitler and insult the American people’s intelligence.
Bottom Line: While Democrats fight amongst themselves, Republicans are going to hold the line against the Democrat Party’s radical agenda of defunding the police, middle-class tax hikes, the Green New Deal, and a government takeover of health care.
