Michael Moore: President Trump is Right, The System Is 'Rigged'
Liberal filmmaker agrees with the president on something
Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore admitted President Donald Trump was right when he said the system was "rigged."
During an appearance Wednesday on MSNBC, Moore said:
"The people that came out for Trump — I’m not talking about the racist, white supremacist part."
"I'm talking about those people who are sick and tired of the system. Trump told them it was rigged. It was rigged. And he was right when he said that."
The leftist filmmaker said Trump won in 2016 because voters could relate to his message on the "rigged" political system, economy, and media.
"He won on that," Moore said but claimed Trump "hasn’t delivered" on addressing those issues.
Moore's comments came as he made the case for independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, his preferred candidate for president.
In 2016, he endorsed Sanders and accused the Democratic National Committee of rigging the system in favor of Hillary Clinton.
Sanders himself said his election loss to Clinton in 2016 was because of a "rigged system."
Sanders bowed out of the 2016 election just before the Democratic National Convention and endorsed Clinton for the presidency in her race against Trump.
But Moore now says the system is "rigged in favor of the Donald Trump" and warned candidates such as former Vice President Joe Biden they are destined to lose.
"So when you have somebody like Bernie who just comes right out and says, 'Yeah, it is rigged, but I’m going to tell you how it’s rigged because it’s been rigged in favor of the Donald Trumps,'" Moore said.
"Bernie needs to say, 'I’m going to build a 'Medicare for all' system, and Donald Trump is going to pay for it, or all the Donald Trumps out there are going to pay for it.'"
"We need to come at this really hard, and that’s what the American people want. That’s how we’re going to win," he added.
Last month, Moore and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., attended Sanders' rally in NYC to declare their endorsement.
