When you hear from Micheal Moore you expect nothing but negativity against Republicans but I must say this is a shocker…. but he knows what’s coming down.
Appearing on a special edition of Real Time with Bill Maher Wednesday, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore stunned the crowd with a prediction they likely did not expect.
Known best for left-wing documentaries like “Fahrenheit 911” and “Bowling for Columbine,” Moore, who has said he himself will vote for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, delivered a very unpopular opinion to the show’s decidedly liberal audience.
“I’m sorry to have to be the buzzkill here so early on, but I think Trump is going to win. I’m sorry,” he said to a chorus of boos.
Maher chimed in, agreeing with Moore, and warning fellow liberals that “the enemy is complacency.”
Moore, who is from the Midwest, believes that if Trump wins, it will be because of Middle America.
“I live in Michigan. Let me tell you: It’s going to be the Brexit strategy,” he said, referring to the UK’s decision last month to leave the European Union after 52 percent of 33 million voters voted to do so.
He continued, “To millions and millions of Americans, this was music to their ears. We’ve been sitting in our bubble, having a good laugh at this total s–t-show, but the truth is that this plays to a lot of people that he has to win to become the next president.”
Those millions, according to Moore, live in the swing states in the Midwest.
“The middle of England [equivalent] is Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, and Pennsylvania,” he said. “Mitt Romney lost by 64 electoral votes. The total electoral votes of those four states in the Rust Belt: 64. All he has to do is win those four states.”
Moore said the idea of putting tariffs on imported cars was “music to people’s ears” during the Michigan primary.
These statements seemed to echo ones the filmmaker made at a press conference in London earlier in the day.
“He knows how to manipulate a dumbed-down population. The population of schools has been wrecked, and the news media is just insipid and stupid and doesn’t give the people the facts about what’s going on,” he said at the press conference.
He continued, “[Trump is] not as stupid as he looks. You should take it very seriously. He knows the manipulation that’s going on here, and the use of propaganda and the way he’s doing it is just brilliant in the way that he is succeeding and has succeeded.”
