Michael Moore: We Must Fight ‘Tooth and Nail’ For Vote-by-Mail To Stop Trump
Liberal filmmaker accuses president of planning to 'rig' election
Leftist documentary filmmaker Michael Moore urged Democrats to "fight tooth and nail" for mail-in voting to stop President Donald Trump from "rigging" the 2020 presidential election.
Appearing on MSNBC’s “The Beat," Moore was asked by host ArI Melber on what liberals should do to counter Trump.
"Your concern about that, and as someone who has always been tough and loud and clear about your politics in public, what do you think people like you, fellow liberals, should do if Trump is playing games with 2020 voting?" Melber asked.
“He has to be fought tooth and nail. There can be no compromise now."
"I can see, I think others can see what he is up to here," Moore said.
I, by trying to make it uncomfortable or uneasy or, if the virus still going on in November.”
“I don’t know why he would oppose this, because it seems like a lot of seniors, that was his strongest demographic, why he would oppose making it easier for them so that they don’t have to go to a polling place and maybe get the virus."
"A lot of stuff doesn’t make any sense right now.”
“But I’ve learned in terms of how we lost to him last time, how he won the White House by losing the election, to not take him for granted," Moore added.
"Every move he is making, whether it’s getting rid of the inspector generals, so there is no watchdogs in the last six to nine months, whether it’s the business with the post office, whatever he is doing and whatever he is up to, suggesting maybe we postpone the election because of the virus."

"We must not postpone the election. We must make it easy for every American to vote. We must not be afraid of men carrying guns in our state capitols. They are the minority.”
Moore isn't the only liberal celebrity who thinks mail-in voting can defeat Trump.
Leftist director Rob Reiner endorsed Democrats' vote-by-mail campaign last month, claiming Trump will lose “in a landslide" because of it.
"The vote in Nov. is our last chance to hold him accountable," Reiner said.
Earlier his week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vowed that Democrats would "make sure" vote-by-mail will "prevail" during negotiations.
Pelosi assured said Democrats would not stand down on their far-left "wish list" of demands for the stimulus package.
According to Pelosi, House Democrats are "there to make sure" the list will "prevail when we go to the table for negotiation” on the next COVID-19 pandemic aide package.
