According to extreme-left filmmaker Michael Moore, Donald Trump will likely be our next president. Moore, who would be more likely to skip a meal than to support a Republican, is dismayed but certain that Hillary Clinton will fail to become the first female in the White House.
“This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full-time sociopath is going to be our next president,” Moore wrote on his website Monday. “President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ’cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years.”
Well, whatever you say, Mike.
Okay, sounds good. It sure as hell sounds better than the alternative. Sounds better than what we’ve been saying for the last eight years, for that matter.
Moore, the documentary director behind films like Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11, said there were five reasons Trump would be the next president. One of them, he said, was his unique appeal to voters in the Rust Belt states.
“Trump is going to hammer Clinton on her support of TPP and other trade policies that have royally screwed the people of these four states,” Moore wrote, suggesting that Republicans would take Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Trump himself has said that he would attempt to change the electoral map in the general election, and many conservatives voted for him for the express purpose of doing so. Trump’s stance on trade is perhaps his most liberal, although he insists that he just wants to tweak our economic agreements with the world.
Moore, though, thinks that more than bad trade agreements will put Trump in the White House. According to him, 2016 will become the last stand for the “Angry White Man.”
“Our male-dominated, 240-year run of the USA is coming to an end,” he wrote. “A woman is about to take over! How did this happen? On our watch!”
In this mocking tone, he surmised that many white men would vote for Trump merely to make sure than a woman couldn’t take over in Washington.
Moore is right – Trump is going to be our next president. Not because he appeals to frightened white men or Democrats, though. It’s because he’s the only politician in a generation to talk about truly digging in and fixing a broken, corrupt political system. Voters will look past his flaws, see the ultimate corrupt politician on the other side, and make the only choice they can make.
Liberals like Moore may hate it, but this is our time.
