Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore once again appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight on Tuesday, finding amusement in conservatives’ hysteria over him.

“I think Republicans and right-wingers, they blow me up into this mythical, scary character,” he said. “He’s got all of this money, he’s controlling all of this. Him and George Soros. Now Warren Buffett is in on it!”

Moore admitted in the interview that he is apart of the 1 percent he and “Occupy Wall Street” have been protesting against, something he denied during his last appearance on the show.

That, however, didn’t stop the filmmaker from continuing to protest income inequality.

“When people in the ‘Occupy’ movement talk about the 1 percent, we’re not simply talking about just because you make that money,” he said. “It’s about the mentality and attitude.”
