People in the real world are more "purple" than siding entirely with either political side, documentary filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi ― daughter of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi ―  said Wednesday, while claiming that many of President Donald Trump's female base in the South hold a "subservient" view where men are concerned.

"The whole point was to show my kids, this was a family road trip, that we live in a liberal bubble and not all of America agrees with us," Pelosi told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" about her upcoming HBO documentary, "Outside the Bubble: On the Road with Alexandra Pelosi" airs Monday.

Pelosi said she spoke with women in Alabama after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's hearings, and found that the issue brought out Trump's base.

"It's hard for us to understand, but if you're making $7.50 an hour... all the women told me that a woman's place is a different role," said Pelosi. "The way I look at being a woman working in Manhattan is different than the way they're treated as women in the South."

There, women looked at their role based on the Bible, which "says that the men are in charge of their household," said Pelosi. "They think they have a different role as a woman. They looked at it like we know that our role is to subservient to our man, period. It's hard for us as working women to grasp, but that's how you look at it."

Pelosi said there is a "popular narrative" that the United States is nearing a civil war, but she does not agree with that.

"If you go out into real America and talk to people and they invite you over for dinner and you talk to Trump voters and the base, you will see that there is a lot more purple out there," Pelosi said.
