Michael Moore said Donald Trump used Carryn Owens, widow of NAVY Seal Ryan Owers, as a prop and an "f-you" to the people. Moore called Owens "another notch on his belt." Owens received a 2-minute uninterrupted standing ovation at Trump's address to Congress.
"That's why she's there as sort of an f-you for the people who are criticizing [the mission Navy SEAL Ryan Owens was killed in]," Moore said. "And the poor woman, this widow who just lost her husband. She is in desperate grief right now... and in love with her husband. And to use that to put another notch on his belt and what is he thinking about? My ratings. Record applause. Record ratings. I'm going to get an Emmy for this, most applause for a dead soldier on my watch. This is the sickness of this man."
"He was a beloved tv star and he knew how to milk it. He knew what he was doing. He always knows what he's doing," Moore finished his rant.
