Video shows the Speaker of the House waving to someone off camera while Flores’ daughter stands next to her.

Pelosi then looks down at Flores’ daughter and appears to stretch out her elbow as the child moves to the side.

Flores took to Twitter to smack Pelosi, saying, “No child should be pushed.”

“No child should be pushed aside for a photo op. PERIOD!!

“I’m so proud of my strong, beautiful daughter that I don’t let it bother me. She kept smiling and posed like a queen for the photo,” added the Mexican-born congresswoman.

House Speaker Drew Hammill’s chief of staff refuted claims that Pelosi pushed the child and said she was trying to make sure Flores’ daughter was in the shot.

“It is sad to see ‘news outlets’ who know better misrepresent the spokeswoman’s efforts to ensure Rep. Flores’ daughters are not hidden behind her in all photos of such an important moment for her family,” Hammill tweeted.

Hammill shared a second video of Pelosi talking to Flores’ daughters.

“And here is more footage of the Speaker politely greeting Rep. Flores’ children and telling them about the room they are in,” the House Chief of Staff said in a separate tweet.

In another video, Pelosi and Flores smile and tremble as the Democratic leader congratulates her on the historic achievement.

“It is a great honor to welcome Congresswoman Flores to the Capitol and to the United States Congress with great congratulations,” Pelosi said in the video.

“And grateful again for her leadership and her beautiful family who are here today.”

Flores became the first Mexican-born woman to be sworn into Congress after being elected in a special election in early June.

She will seek to retain the seat in November’s midterm elections against Democrat Vicente Gonzalez.
