During his appearance on a CNN special, “The Messy Truth with Van Jones,” occasional filmmaker Michael Moore claimed Democrats could take heart in Hillary Clinton’s popular vote victory in last month’s presidential election.
Jones began the segment by observing that it wasn’t just Republicans — Democrats “kinda suck too.”
“We claim to be for the working class, but we left out a lot of workers in the rust belt,” he said, adding that they’d failed young voters and voters of color.
Moore agreed that Democrats sucked — but for a wholly different reason.
“We suck, because there’s no other definition for a party that twice in 16 years wins the popular vote and loses the election,” he said. “Explain that to people in other countries — they lose when they win!”
Jones observed that while Clinton blamed her loss on things like the FBI investigation into her email scandal, there were other factors at play.
Moore agreed, and added that he’d actually predicted a Trump win long before the election, and based his prediction on winning what he called “the four Brexit states” — Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin.
Moore said he was able to come to this conclusion because he lives in Michigan and not “in the bubble,” and observed that “there were a lot of Barack Obama voters that were going to vote for Trump,” because they saw him as a “human Molotov cocktail that they wanted to throw into the system and blow it up.”
Jones indicated that even after a month, all his liberal friends are in “a four-week long freak out” over the election, who are “swinging back-and-forth between denial and blind panic.”
In answer, Moore said that Clinton voters should “feel good about the fact that the majority of your fellow Americans did not want Donald J. Trump as their president.”
Really? That and a buck will buy them a cup of coffee at Dunkin Donuts.
