Liberal activist and filmmaker Michael Moore slammed Speaker Nancy Pelosi Monday after she appeared on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” saying the California Democrat’s “old tired privileged ways are over.”

Moore included a clip from Pelosi’s interview in his tweet where she said that the progressive flank of the House Democratic Caucus, including freshmen such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), is “like five people.”

{mosads}”I do reject socialism as an economic system. If people have that view, that’s their view. That is not the view of the Democratic Party,” Pelosi said.

“By and large, whatever orientation [House Democrats] came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center, that we have to go down the mainstream.”

Moore has been an outspoken critic of President Trump since his election.

He has claimed Democrats were partially responsible for the president’s win, saying they “actively depressed the vote” by not nominating candidates more different from Trump.
