Social media is an amazing tool. The way it fosters instantaneous communication is truly a wondrous thing. I mean that. The downside of it, though, is that it encourages its users to think “out loud.” And sometimes…sometimes, that just isn’t such a good thing.

Yesterday, I wrote about the hypocrisy we’re seeing from some of the media smart set/punditry regarding the taking out of Qasem Soleimani.  In that article, I included a tweet from Michael Moore (no relation) — one I thought illustrated well how wrong some of the leftward takes have been on the matter:

He’s hardly alone in this — and he’s no Rose McGowan — but given his large platform, he wields some influence. Sadly.

Late last night, he topped that earlier tweet, though. In case you were wondering if he could:

He elaborated on Instagram:

Never fear, America, the fearless filmmaker from Flint is here to save the day! Move over, Dennis Rodman, we’ve got MICHAEL F. MOORE here to conduct our foreign policy now. He has recorded — and DM’d! — Ayatollah Khamenei a message — a personal appeal — not to respond with violence and to simply let Mike and others to “fix this peacefully.” (Wait — does the Ayatollah follow Mike? Or does he have open DM’s?!)

And here’s the best part: When the Ayatollah responds, Moore promises, “I’ll post his reply.”

I don’t know about you, but I am on pins and needles. Pins. And. Needles!
