(Tea Party PAC) – Michael Moore may get a lot of things wrong, but he seems to have a knack for predicting elections.
In July of 2016, the famously far-left Hollywood producer projected that then-GOP nominee for the presidential election, Donald Trump, would win.
Well, the rest of history, but now, Moore is making another prediction, long before the Democrat primaries have even begun.
He’s once again predicting Trump will win, and, well, here’s what POTUS thinks about that:
He made same prediction in 2016. Nobody ever said Michael was stupid! https://t.co/XDEzsTS1Pt

“If the vote were today, I believe, he would win the electoral states that he would need, because, living out there, I will tell you, his level of support has not gone down one inch,” Moore said in an interview on the far-left program, “Democracy Now!”
“In fact, I’d say it’s even more rabid than it was before because they’re afraid now. They’re afraid he could lose because they watched his behavior. So they are voracious in their appetite for Donald Trump. That’s the bad news.”
This spells bad news…for Democrats.
This is where Moore’s intelligent insight ends abruptly. We went on to say that he believes that the Democrats’ only hope is to nominate, rather than a “moderate” like former Vice President Joe Biden, to opt for one of the radical far-leftists, who are in reality only slightly more left than the hook, line, and sinker progressive Biden.
Right, Michael Moore. That’s what the Democrats should do. Talk about guaranteeing re-election for Trump! Is he secretly being paid by the Trump campaign?
“So, what we have to do is we have to make sure we don’t give them another Hillary Clinton to vote for,” he nonetheless maintained . “The Democrats who are encouraging moderation, go to the center — you know, ‘Let’s not upset the angry white guys’ — that’s really what it is. You know, the voter they’re trying to convince — ‘That’s why we’ve got to have Biden.’”
Listen to Moore’s comments below:
There’s a slight difference between what Moore said in 2016 and what he’s saying now. During the 2016 election, he signaled that he at least understood why so many Americans, some of them working-class whites, were rooting for Trump.
“I know a lot of people in Michigan that are planning to vote for Trump and they don’t necessarily agree with him. They’re not racist or redneck, they’re actually pretty decent people …,” he said at the time in his 2016 documentary, “TrumpLand.”
“Whether Trump means it or not is kind of irrelevant because he’s saying the things to people who are hurting, and that’s why every beaten-down, nameless, forgotten working stiff who used to be part of what was called the middle class loves Trump.”
However, the anti-Trump Hollywood figure also insisted that these working-class Americans would come to regret their votes, as Trump would make their lives worse.
What has happened under Trump is quite the opposite, however, as the president’s free-market policies have sparked historic, record-low unemployment coupled with record-high wage gains, most notably for those on the lower end of the economic spectrum.
These are the people we are always told by folks like Moore would be most hurt by Republican policies. Weird.
In reality, the opposite has come to pass, and the president’s free-market policies have spurred record-low unemployment and record-high wage gains, particularly for those at the lower end of the spectrum.
As The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday: “Wages for rank-and-file workers are rising at the quickest pace in more than a decade, even faster than for bosses, a sign that the labor market has tightened sufficiently to convey bigger increases to lower-paid employees.”
These are the facts.

According to Moore, however, white working-class Americans who still support Trump are “not good people.”
“Two-thirds of all white guys voted for Trump,” the filmmaker said in a Rolling Stone interview earlier in the week. “That means anytime you see three white guys walking at you, down the street toward you, two of them voted for Trump. You need to move over to the other sidewalk because these are not good people that are walking toward you. You should be afraid of them.”
Gee, I wonder why the Democrats are hemorrhaging voters?
