Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore claims Pope Francis told him capitalism is a sin.

During a late night appearance, Moore told Seth Meyers Thursday he enjoyed an audience with the pope a couple weeks ago and used the opportunity query Francis on capitalism.

“Do you believe that an economic system that benefits the few, the wealthy at the expense of the many is a sin?” he asked. According to Moore, the pope replied with a simple “Si,” meaning yes.

He then followed up with, “So you believe capitalism, the kinda capitalism we have now is a sin?”

Moore again claims Francis again answered in the affirmative. “Yes, it is,” he said. “The poor must always come first.”

From there, at least according to the Oscar winner, Francis asked Moore to make more movies.

The pope “grabbed my hand” and said, “Please, pray for me.”

Moore said he would and asked Francis to return the favor, but the pope said, “No, you have to make more movies.”

According to numerous statistics, here in America, poverty has hit record lows among children, blacks and Hispanics, under the Trump administration.
