Liberal and controversial filmmaker Michael Moore warns vice president Biden’s campaign they are at risk of losing his home state of Michigan. While speaking to The Hill TV’s “Rising” Moore expressed his concern that Trump has already cut Biden’s lead “in half” since June. “The fact that Trump has narrowed the lead by 50 percent since June should have everyone screaming bloody murder,” said Moore.
Moore blames the drop in support of an insufficient “ground game.” “It’s actually worse than Hillary. At least there was a ground game, even though she didn’t show up” said Moore. By ground game, Moore means there were Hillary offices and campaign offices as well as aggressive door-to-door campaigning in many towns.
Moore acknowledged the benefit of Biden’s recent visit to Michigan, but had pointed criticism Biden avoided “Black Michigan” and only visited “White Michigan.” Biden has received similar criticism for not giving due diligence to visiting the Latino population in Florida.
After the Republican National Convention, Moore warned Democrats of a Republican ‘resistance’ because “the enthusiasm level for the 60 million in Trump’s base is OFF THE CHARTS! For Joe, not so much. Don’t leave it to the Democrats to get rid of Trump. YOU have to get rid of Trump.”
Moore has been singing the same tune for months. During an appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Moore warned of Trump “none of us should take him for granted.” “We need to behave as if he will win a second term. Anybody who right now says, ‘Oh no,’ you’re really part of the problem because you’re not taking this seriously” added Moore. “He knows exactly what he’s doing.”
Maher and Moore then discussed what they think is an actual likelihood of Trump refusing to vacate the White House in the event of a Biden win. “Listen, if that’s the case, if the police don’t do their job, there’s you and me, Bill…I mean, you and I are gonna go there – or at least I’m inviting you to come with me – but we’re gonna go there and I think we could get thousands, millions of Americans to show up and escort him in the best eviction ever that has taken place in the United States and remove him from that building. He’s not staying!”
However, fast forward a few months, and it looks like Moore’s much less confident about a Biden win.
