Michael Moore Pokes at Hillary's Potential Weaknesses Against Trump
There are some who believe Hillary Clinton has the presidency in the bag. Don't count Michael Moore on that list—he sees a path to victory for Trump.
"I know that they [the Trump campaign] are planning to focus on Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. That’s how he can win the election. If he can get those upper kind of Midwestern-type states, then he can pull it off," filmmaker Michael Moore told MSNBC's Chris Hayes.
Hillary Clinton won Pennsylvania and Ohio, but lost Wisconsin and Michigan to Bernie Sanders. Moore interviewed the Michigan militia while writing the book Downsize This! in 1996 and had an epiphany about the left consoling the right who felt they got “left behind.”
“I said publicly last August that I thought [Trump] would be the Republican nominee, and that was laughed at. I... think people are...no longer laughing at the possibility of what could happen.... How bad could it be, really, if Trump gets in?... I would say pretty bad. ... Our side of the political fence oftentimes does not come out to vote and therefore, the other side, they're very good [at voter turnout]. I think that should be a real concern,” he told Hayes.
