During a recent event to promote his film ‘Michael Moore in TrumpLand’, Michael Moore reiterated his long-standing assertion that Donald Trump can and will win the presidential race. Since he was right about Trump becoming the nominee, he definitely knows a thing or two about how this all works, which might be why people are listening to him now.
According to Salon, he said this:
Trump’s election is going to be the biggest “fuck you” ever recorded in human history — and it will feel good … Whether Trump means it or not is kind of irrelevant because he’s saying the things to people who are hurting, and that’s why every beaten-down, nameless, forgotten working stiff who used to be part of what was called the middle class loves Trump. He is the human Molotov cocktail that they’ve been waiting for, the human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them.
Trump continues to sink in the polls, so only time — specifically, 13 more days! — will tell if Moore is right.
