During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday morning, left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore said Democrats would have a better chance of winning if they ran Oprah Winfrey or Tom Hanks.
MICHAEL MOORE: Well, that's why we love Oprah. Somebody needs to say that. We do need hope. I was hopeful when I saw the two of them there because Trump looked like he didn't belong there. And he felt so uncomfortable in his own skin, sitting there in that chair, you know, just like -- and Obama -- I think we counted 15 or 16 ums as he was trying say something nice.
Look, that's the sideshow that has to happen in a week like this. But frankly, you know, Democrats would be better off if they ran Oprah or Tom Hanks or -- why don't we run beloved people? I mean, we have so many of them. The Republicans do this.
They run Reagan and The Terminator and other people. Why don't we, why don't we run somebody that the American people love, that they are really drawn to and they're smart and have good politics and all that? Why don't Democrats do that?
I'm telling you, Jake, my sincere hope is that the DNC, that there is a clean sweep in this party. They have to -- they all have to go. And they have to make room for the progressive Democrats, who are going to come in here, who are going to be needed to fight the things that Trump is going to do to the people of this country and the world.
