Michael Moore


Last quote by Michael Moore

You are living in a bubble that comes with an adjoining echo chamber where you and your friends are convinced the American people are not going to elect an idiot for president, . You alternate between being appalled at him and laughing at him because of his latest crazy comment or his embarrassingly narcissistic stance on everything because everything is about him … You need to exit that bubble right now.feedback

Michael Moore has most recently been quoted in an article called Michael Moore on Trump, Springsteen and Where We're Headed. Michael Moore said, “I never wanted to be more wrong about anything in my life. I was trying to tell anybody who was connected to the Clinton campaign that she needed to get out to Michigan and Wisconsin. Days before the election, The New York Times said he had a 15 percent chance of winning. Why would you believe anything The New York Times says after that? This is a paper that, like much of the media, has been out of touch. They're still distracted about all the wrong things about Trump, and they are in many ways contributing to his being in office until January 2025.”. Michael Moore has been quoted a grand total of 68 times in 37 articles.

They loved the brazenness of it. Even when they didn't necessarily agree with it, they thought, That took balls.

Americans, they want somebody who stands up for the things that he or she believes in and says it without any apology.feedback

Aug 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

We are here to perform a citizen's arrest! They're the liberals who weren't paying attention to what needed to happen last year to stop Trump. Trying to break through that bubble was very difficult. Trying to warn them what was going to happen, it was an impossible task. This show is for them. It's why I'm glad I'm doing it here in New York, right now, rather than in Atlanta or some other place. ... Unless you have the attitude that you're in the French Resistance at this point, I don't know how we're going to defeat this. All of us have to be willing to put ourselves out there.feedback

I started wondering, If the way we want go is the way of Trump's travel ban, what if that had happened months or years earlier?' If Trump's America existed six years ago, there may not have been any Dr. Mona. Her crime was that she was a Muslim and Iraqi, and we may not have ever found out the truth. The repercussions of allowing Trump and his ilk to get away with this, it goes way beyond the things we can imagine. I need to tell that story.feedback

Aug 13 2017

I haven't anticipated it, but I'm sure it could happen. What usually drives the right crazy about me is when they see how wide my audience is. When they think I'm in Noam Chomsky territory, they don't have to worry. But if they suddenly see me appearing on the Martha Stewart show – that I'm reaching a very wide, mainstream audience – that's scary to them. This show has sold out every night. So I'm sure when it dawns on them, thousands of people are coming to see this, they will do what they do.feedback

From the time you opened this letter to the time you get to the bottom of it, there's a decent chance that our President will have violated the constitution, obstructed justice, lied to the American people, encouraged or supported acts of violence, or committed some horrible mistake that would've ended any other politician's career (or sent you or I to jail). And just like all the times he's done so in the past, he will get away with it.feedback
