Speaker Pelosi Disses Democrat Base: “I Do Reject Socialism as an Economic System – It Is Not the View of the Democratic Party” (VIDEO)

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just dissed socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a ‘60 Minutes’ interview on CBS on Sunday.

When confronted by ’60 Minutes’ host Lesley Stahl about the push-back that Pelosi is receiving from socialists like ‘AOC and her group,’ Pelosi fired back, ‘That’s like 5 people.’

Speaker Nancy Pelosi also rejected the idea of socialism, something a majority of Democrat voters support.

Speaker Pelosi: “I do reject socialism as an economic system. If people have that view, that’s their view. It is not the view of the Democratic Party.”

This was strange considering more Democrats support socialism than capitalism in a recent Gallup poll.
