Why Michael Moore Told Meet the Press that Trump Will Win
Sunday morning, while reading the news of the firebombing of the Republican Party Headquarters in Orange County, I remembered that Michael Moore, the documentary film maker from Flint, Michigan, told Chuck Todd on Meet the Press, Sunday, October 2, 2016, that Donald Trump was a “human Molotov Cocktail” that on Election Day angry voters were going to “throw into a political system that has made their lives miserable.”
Michael Moore, second only to Hillary Clinton as the Democrat Republicans despise the most, thinks Donald Trump will win the presidency for the same reason the British middle class voted to leave the European Union in the June 23, 2016 Brexit decision. Here is Moore’s pitch:
“From Green Bay to Pittsburgh, this, my friends, is the middle of England – broken, depressed, struggling, the smokestacks strewn across the countryside with the carcass of what we used to call the Middle Class. Angry, embittered working (and nonworking) people who were lied to by the trickle-down of Reagan and abandoned by Democrats…”
Those are the voters that Moore is talking about when he said to Chuck Todd, "They see Donald Trump as their human Molotov cocktail that they get to go into the voting booth on November 8th and throw him into a political system that has made their lives miserable.”
The person who threw the Molotov Cocktail through the window at the GOP headquarters in Hillsborough over the weekend and painted “Nazi Republicans leave town or else,” was so angry at Republicans that he or she was willing to risk getting caught and going to jail.
That’s analogous to just how angry the Donald Trump voters are.
Read Michael Moore’s 5 REASONS WHY TRUMP WILL WIN. Admonishing Democrats for assuming that they have insurmountable advantages with demographic trends and the Electoral College map, Moore says, “If you believe Hillary Clinton is going to beat Trump with facts and smarts and logic, then you obviously missed the past year of 56 primaries and caucuses where 16 Republican candidates tried that and every kitchen sink they could throw at Trump and nothing could stop his juggernaut.”
Why the Access Hollywood Tapes are Not Destroying Trump
Donald Trump is in bigger trouble than ever with voters because of evidence proving a history of predatory sexual behavior. From the Access Hollywood tape of lewd comments to interviews with numerous victims, most everyone believes it’s true.
As if his behavior is not bad enough, now Trump is digging himself into an even deeper hole by refusing to accept responsibility for his behavior and by claiming that his accusers are lying.
Most everyone believes it’s Trump who is lying.
So why, in light of Donald Trump’s lying about his lifelong history of sexually predatory behavior and lewd comments that objectify women, why does the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll, released Sunday, October 16, 2016, show Clinton with a national lead among likely voters within the margin of error: Clinton 47%; Trump 43%; Johnson 5%; Stein 2%?
Why does the new CNN/ORC North Carolina poll, released at noon today, show Donald Trump trailing Hillary Clinton by only 1 point (Clinton 48%; Trump 47%) despite the Access Hollywood scandal.
Clinton leads Trump in every category in today’s CNN/ORC poll except two: economy and honesty/trustworthy. What is most important to Trump voters? The economy and a leader who can be trusted to take on a rigged federal establishment.
Here in North Carolina, all four polls conducted since the Access Hollywood tape of Trump’s lewd comments show the same margin-of-error lead for Clinton:
- NBC News/WSJ Poll 9/10-12: Clinton 45%; Trump 41%; Johnson 9%
- Suffolk Univ Poll 10/10-12: Clinton 45%; Trump 43%; Johnson 5%
- Emerson College Poll 10/10-12: Clinton 46%; Trump 42%; Johnson 5%
- CNN/ORC 10/10-15: Clinton 48%; Trump 47%; Johnson 4%
Donald Trump is still in the running nationally and here in North Carolina because his voters see a federal government rigged by insiders in Washington, DC for the advantage of the privileged few, and the ideological left, as a bigger problem than sexually predatory behavior and lewd comments that objectify women.
In the Suffolk University poll conducted October 10-12 in North Carolina, only 13.6% of likely voters said the Access Hollywood tape changed their opinion in the presidential race.
Rich and Powerful Enough to Stand Up to the Rich and Powerful
Donald Trump voters see him as the only candidate in the race who is rich and powerful enough to stand up to the rich and powerful insiders who have ignored the fears and concerns of a middle-class electorate struggling to make ends meet, all the while growing the federal largess with borrowed money to a historic national debt of $19.7 trillion.
There are 3,144 counties in the United States. Think about where the top 10 richest counties would be in light of the wealth amassed around our great cities from Miami to Philadelphia, New York and Boston; Cleveland and Chicago; Seattle, San Francisco, LA; Phoenix, Denver, St. Louis, Kansas City, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Charlotte, and RTP.
The astounding fact is that 5 of the top 10 wealthiest counties in the United States out of a total of 3,144 are located in the Washington, DC area. Four of the 5 wealthiest counties are in Northern Virginia (Loudoun, Falls Church, Fairfax, Arlington), plus Howard County, MD.
Thanks to WikiLeaks and documents exposed through the Freedom of Information Act, everyone knows that Hillary Clinton is a principal partner in the architectural firm that has rigged the federal government for decades. Everyone knows that Hillary Clinton is a consummate insider who has exploited her revered national stature for private financial gain.
In 2013 alone, Hillary Clinton received $9,680,000 for speaking fees. According to an itemization of speeches on her 2013 IRS tax return, she received $225,000 for 34 of 41 speeches. The speeches were to Wall Street firms like Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank.
On Saturday, October 15, 2016, WikiLeaks released transcripts of Hillary Clinton’s three speeches to Goldman Sachs for which she was paid $675,000.
Bernie Sanders questioned Hillary Clinton’s ability to lead as president because of her financial ties to Wall Street. Time and again he asked her to reveal the content of her speeches to prove that she had not sold her soul to those paying her a quarter of a million dollars for a talk.
Now, thanks to WikiLeaks, everyone knows she has been lying, too:
- Everyone knows that Clinton says one thing publicly about issues like fracking, open trade and open borders, and another thing privately.
- “You need both a public and private position,” she said … privately.
For Trump supporters, the biggest problem facing the nation is a federal government rigged by the insiders for the insiders … not sexually predatory behavior.
Hillary Clinton is Her Own Worst Enemy
Here are excerpts from Michael Moore’s 5 REASONS WHY TRUMP WILL WIN that make the case that Hillary Clinton is her own worst enemy:
- “Let’s face it: Our biggest problem here isn’t Trump – it’s Hillary.”
- “She is hugely unpopular — nearly 70% of all voters think she is untrustworthy and dishonest. She represents the old way of politics, not really believing in anything other than what can get you elected.”
- “Young women are among her biggest detractors.”
- “Not a day goes by that a millennial doesn’t tell me they aren’t voting for her.”
- No Democrat, and certainly no independent, is waking up on November 8th excited to run out and vote for Hillary the way they did the day Obama became president or when Bernie was on the primary ballot. The enthusiasm just isn’t there.”
That’s the bottom line: the enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton just isn’t there. It’s because everyone knows that she is the consummate insider who rigged the system for personal financial gain and for the benefit of her insider friends around the nation … all the while neglecting “what we used to call the Middle Class. Angry, embittered working (and nonworking) people who were lied to by the trickle-down of Reagan and abandoned by Democrats…”
When thinking about the firebombing in Hillsborough, consider just how stupid it was for someone to risk many years in jail just to make a political statement. Well, electing Donald Trump president may be stupid and risky, but that’s the degree of anger the voters have that Michael Moore is talking about when he said to Chuck Todd, "They see Donald Trump as their human Molotov cocktail that they get to go into the voting booth on November 8th and throw him into a political system that has made their lives miserable.”
