Michael Moore is a guy full of opinions. For example, he thinks capitalism is bad. And, oh yeah — he thinks he should be a capitalist. ‘Cause he is.
He also thinks rich capitalist people are bad. He also thinks he should be one of ’em — he’s worth $50 million.
Michael once asserted to Larry King:
“[I]’ve covered a number of issues and different things. But it all seems to come back to this one issue of ‘follow the money.’ Who’s got the money? And whoever has the money has the power. And right now, in America, tonight, Larry, the richest 1 percent have more financial wealth than the bottom 95 percent combined.”
To that, Larry asked, “You’re in that 1 percent, though?”
HEY, LOOK — A SQUIRREL!
He replied, “I don’t think I’m in that 1 percent, but I make documentary films.”
Anyway, to whatever degree his big statements are worthy of consideration, Moore has a message for America: He knows who can take down Donald Trump.
And it’s the President’s worst nightmare: a non-white woman.
Yet, unfortunately for those sick of the Trumpster, she isn’t running.
In an interview with MSNBC, the multi-millionaire who makes multi-millions by raging against multi-millionaires who make multi-millions delivered his antidote for America’s Trumpitis. He served up the one person who can unpresident the President:
“In fact, it is Obama — Michelle Obama. Everybody watching this right now knows she is a beloved American, and she would go in there and she would beat him.”
Well, she’s indeed beloved among Democratic voters. Swing voters? Not as certainly.
Ever notice that some people get their party’s favoritism mixed up with the whole of the nation’s?
To many, Michelle’s a member of the ultra-Left — not necessarily a moderate’s dream, much less palatable to the rest.
Nevertheless, Michael says Mrs. Obama would dominate:
“She would beat him in the debates. He wouldn’t be able to bully her, he wouldn’t be able to nickname her. … She takes the stage, and she’s so powerful and so good, you just look at that and think, ‘Of course she could win.'”
We’re back to that “assuming everyone sees it the way you do” thing.
But I don’t mean to suggest Michelle couldn’t win. Perhaps she could.
According to a July YouGov poll, she is — after all — the “most admired woman in the world.”
Melania placed third.
But — the poll was conducted in 41 countries. That means a lot of the voters are likely only familiar with the former First Lady via the American press. And if 2016 taught us anything, it’s that American voters don’t give a hoot about what the left-wing media has to say.
Still, the lady’s got charisma. And a following.
Maybe Michael should pick up his phone. He told MSNBC he believes Michelle would take one for the team if the request was made:
“[H]as anyone asked her? If asked to serve, I believe she would serve.”
Maybe Michael should run. He’s a rich capitalist white male one-percenter. Perfecto!
