Michael Moore says ex-wife is trying to ‘smear’ him. Shame, shame … we must believe ALL women, now

When it comes to allegations from his ex-wife, Kathleen Glynn, that he’s ripped her off for what might potentially be hundreds of thousands of dollars in film profits, filmmaker Michael Moore prefers that America’s judicial system NOT believe all women.

According to court papers filed Friday in New York by Moore’s attorney, Kenneth Warner, Glynn’s allegations — which were unveiled when she filed a lawsuit against her ex-husband at the start of September — are nothing but a “smear.”

Her lawsuit “gratuitously included highly personal and confidential information in her petition [lawsuit] in an apparent effort to increase public exposure and try to embarrass [Moore],” Warner wrote.

He added that her decision to cite her ex-husband’s income statements to the IRS for 2014 and 2016 served “no legitimate purpose.” That’s not necessarily true, though.

In her suit against Moore, Glynn revealed that during the couple’s divorce in 2014, they had arrived at an agreement in which she “signed over essentially all of her interest in the fruits of the parties’ joint efforts as film-makers … in exchange for a promise of future revenue-sharing.”

Moore agreed to this because of the role his ex-wife had played in spurring his success.

“She was the driving force in the making of many of [his] films and other ventures in which Mr. Moore was the featured personality, dating back to their first big success, ‘Roger and Me’ (1989),” Glynn’s attorney, Bonnie Rabin, wrote in the original suit.

She had also produced Moore’s best-performing documentary of all time, “Bowling for Columbine.” Yet when it came time for him to pay up, her ex-husband allegedly refused.

“He was supposed to pay her 4 percent of total revenue from his creative works — but he gave her just $541 in 2014, the suit says. That means he would have pulled in just $13,525 during a seven-month period, according to court papers,” Page Six noted. “And Glynn’s not buying the amount of income Moore reported to the IRS — negative $350,862 in 2014 and negative $221,025 in 2016.”

The reason Glynn reported Moore’s income statements was to challenge them. She found  it dubious that his income would be so low given the unlimited promotion they receive from the left-wing media.

Warner and Moore want the courts to believe that Glynn’s allegations are false. And that’s perfectly fine. He’s within his rights to try and make the case that he’s innocent, though it’d be helpful if he could provide even a shred of evidence.

What’s ironic is that Moore is among the far-leftists who’ve already condemned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who’s been accused without evidence of having sexually assaulted a woman during high school decades ago.

According to leftists like Moore, the American people should, one, #BelieveAllWomen, and two, condemn the SCOTUS nominee for expressing so much anger during his hearing Thursday:

Never mind that Kavanaugh had during the hearing expressed a sentiment not too different from the one expressed by Moore — one of denial and exasperation at being falsely accused of something. Except that whereas the filmmaker has chosen to automatically believe the accusations against Kavanaugh, he’s demanding others not do the same in regard to the allegations against him.

The hypocrisy was noticed by many on social media:
