AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Last week Nancy Pelosi pulled them aside and said, look -- she didn't name them by name, but she basically said, y'all going to say all this, 'cause [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] had said a few days before something about being women of color, basically inferring that Nancy Pelosi was racist. And so Nancy Pelosi pulls them all aside and says, if you're going to be talking about this, come to me first, come within the caucus, don't tweet about this. They ignored her. They not only continued to do interviews, then they had this press conference yesterday, all four of them. So Nancy can't control them. They're running the show.

EARHARDT: Here's the thing, it all goes back to the issues. Like, you can disagree with the president's tweets, and you can say that he needs to be reined in, and he needs to be more presidential. You can look at these four ladies and say they need to remember that they just got there, that they need to respect the people that have been there for a long time. You can say, I don't like how they were cussing at the president yesterday and saying cuss words there, how far they have come, and how -- but if you look at issues, if you look at what the president is doing, you have to look at what they're doing, what their messaging is. When you go to the polls, you have to vote on the issues. And these are their issues, these four freshmen women. They want the Green New Deal, no more oil, no more gas, no more cows, no more cars, no more planes. They want higher taxes, universal income, Medicare for all, and they want immigrants to have free insurance.
