Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi mocked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’ progressive wing of the Democratic Party in a revealing interview over the weekend; saying the freshman Congresswoman’s caucus consists of “just five people.”
Pelosi was speaking with ’60 Minutes’ host Lesley Stahl when she was asked to comment on her ability to control a group of left-wing lawmakers steering her party towards “socialism.”
