We can’t say that Moore didn’t try and warn democrats. In one interview Moore said, “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.” And man was he partially right, it definitely was a big “fuck you” to the establishment and one that will change the direction of the U.S. for the better.
To soften the blow, Moore now offers some suggestions for coping with their loss. Why people actually listen to this guy I shall never know, CNN is actually predicting Trump could very well win the POPULAR vote too.
Mediaite has the story:
First item: the Democratic Party needs to get (to use a term coined by the president-elect) schlonged. “Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably,” the documentarian wrote on his Facebook page Wednesday.
In his most recent movie (actually a filmed version of a live show), Michael Moore in Trumpland, Moore warned that Trump getting elected would be the “biggest fuck you” in human history.
He enjoins readers to reject the platitudes of “pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn’t let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on,” and summarily remove them from their jobs.
Also, he encourages his readers to take heart in the fact that, as in five of the last six presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote:
You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: “HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!” The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Fact. If you woke up this morning thinking you live in an effed-up country, you don’t. The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump. The only reason he’s president is because of an arcane, insane 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we’ll continue to have presidents we didn’t elect and didn’t want.
