Michael Moore said Democrats are doing themselves a "disservice" if they believe FBI director James Comey and the investigation into her private server and emails were the reason why she lost the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Moore spoke with CNN's Don Lemon on the Thursday broadcast of CNN Tonight.
Moore did acknowledge that Comey had some affect on voters after a little push from Lemon, who said "good."
MICHAEL MOORE: Democrats are doing themselves a disservice if they just focus on the Comey thing and not on all the other reasons this happened.
Obviously, this had an impact in the final week of the election. It's not the only thing though. It's disgraceful that twice in 16 years the Democrats have won the popular vote and somehow lost the electoral college. That they would let this happened again. That nobody did the math, nobody thought this out, everybody knew what the law was. Hillary didn't go to Wisconsin for seven months? You know these sort of things --
DON LEMON: It's her own fault. It's the Democrats' own fault you said in a major way. But I want you to look at this --
MOORE: But, yes, this had something to do with it. Yes.
LEMON: Alright. Good....
MOORE: I don't think people all of sudden decided, who were going to vote for Hillary. 'I am going to now vote for Trump.' I think it depressed the vote for Hillary. A lot of people threw their hands up and said 'I'm not voting. I am staying home.' And it energized certain people who maybe weren't that excited about Trump but said I have heard enough of this. I don't want another 8 years of 'Clinton-o-rama,' so I am going to go out and vote for Trump.
