Pelosi Mocks Ocasio-Cortez and Her Little Band of Progressives

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her far-left band of extremists in Congress as “like five people.”

During an interview with Lesley Stahl that aired Sunday on CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” Pelosi was asked how she is dealing with a flank in the party that brands itself as socialists, while others supposedly present themselves as moderates.

Her assessment? Ocasio-Cortez really doesn’t play a big role.

“Over here on the left flank are these self-described socialists, on the right, these moderates,” Stahl claimed.

It is a ridiculous notion in and of itself, considering every top Democratic presidential candidate, many who are coming from Congress, have endorsed radical programs such as the Green New Deal and Medicare for All.

“By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center,” Pelosi countered. “That we have to go down the mainstream.”
