We all know if you don’t start none, there won’t be none. But seems as if Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, has to learn that the hard way.

On Tuesday, Conway decided to mock the tensions between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and four Democratic congresswomen as a “major meow moment,” tagging the women – Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, as USA Today notes.

Well, let’s just say, Pressley who represents Massachusett’s 7th Congressional District, wasn’t having it.

“Oh hi Distraction Becky. Remember that time your boss tore babies from their mothers’ arms and threw them in cages?” Pressley fired back in her own tweet. “Yeah take a seat and keep my name out of your lying mouth.”

The start of the clash goes back to a few days ago when Pelosi criticized the four women of the freshman class for voting against emergency border aid funding, according to USA Today.

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi told the New York Times. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.” 

Pelosi’s comment quickly drew ire.

“That public ‘whatever’ is called public sentiment,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted out. “And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country.” 

“I find it strange when members act as though social media isn’t important,” Ocasio-Cortez continued in another tweet. “They set millions of [dollars] on [fire] to run TV ads so people can see their message. I haven’t dialed for dollars *once* this year & have more time to do my actual job. Yet we’d rather campaign like it’s 2008.”
