“Major Meow Mashup with @SpeakerPelosi brushing back anti-humanitarian border aid fresh-women @AOC @IlhanMN @AyannaPressley @RashidaTlaib,” Conway said in the tweet, which also linked to a writeup on comments she made in an interview with Fox News mocking the spat between the Democrats. 

“Those four female Democrats that Nancy Pelosi is brushing back, I think they are all freshman members,” Conway said in the interview. 

“A major ‘meow moment’ — brushing back in a huge catfight, really ridiculing them — and they voted against the Democratic aid package,” she added.

The back-and-forth comes after Pelosi said in interview published over the weekend that Pressley and Reps.

"They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got," Pelosi added, referring to the four lawmakers' decision not to support a House-passed spending measure that sought help migrants at the border.

In an interview with the Boston NPR affiliate WGBH that aired on Monday, Pressley said she voted to oppose the measure over what she felt was a lack of accountability for the Border Patrol. 

"I sat at the table and worked to improve that House bill to get in protections that were not there around health standards, and to offer some metrics of transparency and accountability," she said.
