Leftist propagandist Michael Moore has returned to warn Democrats about the loyalty of President Trump’s “insane base.”
In response to the president’s rousing campaign announcement on Tuesday night, Michael Moore warned the 2020 hopefuls that Trump’s influence has not diminished among his base of supporters, advising that whoever takes up the sword to slay the orange dragon better be ready to face his hungry hordes of les deplorables.
“I watched the whole thing last night,” the filmmaker tweeted on Wednesday. “I know no one wants to waste that kind of time even looking at him, but not wanting to see the enormity of the fight ahead doesn’t make it go away. He hasn’t lost one inch of his fired-up insane base. Are u ready?”

If Michael Moore genuinely thinks that Democrats’ only path to victory in 2020 is to directly challenge his base with more defamatory rhetoric about their sanity, then he surely has learned nothing since Hillary Clinton lost four years ago, which he actually predicted would happen at the time due to his Rust Belt populist bona fides:
I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I gave it to you straight last summer when I told you that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president. And now I have even more awful, depressing news for you: Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years: “PRESIDENT TRUMP.”
Never in my life have I wanted to be proven wrong more than I do right now.
This isn’t an accident. It is happening. And if you believe Hillary Clinton is going to beat Trump with facts and smarts and logic, then you obviously missed the past year of 56 primaries and caucuses where 16 Republican candidates tried that and every kitchen sink they could throw at Trump and nothing could stop his juggernaut. As of today, as things stand now, I believe this is going to happen – and in order to deal with it, I need you first to acknowledge it, and then maybe, just maybe, we can find a way out of the mess we’re in.
Well, it turned out that Michael Moore was not wrong. Trump did go on to beat Hillary Clinton in 2016 and he is poised to occupy the White House until 2024. Michael Moore also predicted that would happen.
“Too many people in the summer of 2016 were so sure Hillary [Clinton] was going to win, saying no one is going to vote for this idiot,” Moore said in the fall of 2018. “He could win again. I operate as if he is a two-term Trump. I have to. If you think any other way you are guaranteeing that whoever is going to run against him will lose.”
Moored added that Trump is “an evil genius and he was able to outsmart the smartest person ever to run for president. He figured out how to win by losing the election. How did that happen? Historians are going to deal with this for years to come.”
Despite being able to read all the signs on the wall, Moore seems to keep holding out hope that the Democrats (led by handsy Uncle Joe) will sweep in for a victory against President Trump in 2020. And, as evidenced by his recent challenge, he believes that going as far to the left as humanly possible will win the day. This explains why he urged Democrats earlier this year to cast aside all moderate positions and embrace the radical left agenda.
“If you’re being moderate, stop being moderate. Take a position,” Moore said in February on MSNBC. “There’s no middle ground anymore. There’s no halfway point to should somebody be paid a living wage. You know, on the issue of choice, there is no halfway there. You’re either for it or you’re against it. Do you believe in equal rights for women? Do you believe we should have an Equal Rights Amendment? There’s no middle ground. There’s no time for moderation.”
