Rotund filmmaker Michael Moore is unhappy… not that you don’t get the feeling that this is an everyday occurrence.
Moore is ticked off because President Donald Trump offered a prayer for the victims of last week’s shooting in Virginia.
Seriously, WTF is this? At what the WH said was “a memorial for the 12 shot dead in Virginia Beach” (it wasn’t), Trump, looking nothing like Trump, randomly wanders onto the altar in his golf shoes & cap, decides to stay for 15 min, then leaves, having thrown his curve at reality.

President Trump made an unannounced stop at McLean Bible Church in Vienna, Va., on Sunday after playing a round of golf.
The pastor, David Platt, would ask those in attendance to “pray for our president.”
“We pray that he would look to You, that he would trust in You, he would lean on You. That he would govern and make decisions in ways that are good for justice, and good for righteousness and good for equity, every good path,” Platt prayed, according to The Washington Times.
Perhaps this is what got Moore miffed, the idea that Trump might be blessed by God in his battle with the political class.
If there’s a positive here, at least Moore didn’t rag on the president’s slicked back hair.
To suggest that Trump lives rent-free in Moore’s liberal mind would be an accurate assessment.
At last month’s Cannes Film Festival, the filmmaker was railing about Trump “lying.”
“Picasso said, ‘Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth,’” Moore said. “Or, as we say in America, ‘Trump is the lie that enables us, well, more lying.’”
Last summer, during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Moore suggested that Trump was never leaving and that Americans would have to “put our bodies on the line” to make this happen — his contribution being larger, of course.
“Sadly, Trump is not going to leave,” he said, according to Fox News. “He plans to be reelected, he loves the term ‘president for life.’ The only way that we’re going to stop this is eventually we’re all going to have to put our bodies on the line. You’re going to have to be willing to do this.”
Moore told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that Trump could be America’s “last president” — how’s that for fear-mongering?
“I think it’s possible, absolutely. I think that we have someone in the White House who has no respect for the rule of law, who dislikes democracy by an incredible degree, which doesn’t make him really any that much different from other billionaires or CEOs because their businesses are not democracies,” he reportedly said.
Unhinged, you think?
And Moore is still coming to grips with the fact that Robert Mueller didn’t fell Trump with his investigation of the Russian collusion hoax:
When the Wizard of Oz finally spoke — as himself (not as the big, bad Wizard) — his was a small, shakey voice, stuttering at times, unable to look directly at those gathered, a weak man hoping to offend no one, then cutting loose his balloon & flying away, leaving Dorothy behind. pic.twitter.com/2pTYUuJHBu

Then again, he not quite as vile as alleged “comedian” Sarah Silverman, which is quite a statement in its own right.
