Michael Moore: "Do Not Underestimate The Evil Genius That Is Donald J. Trump"

|

Michael Moore warned Democrats not to get too excited and underestimate a Trump victory in 2020 in an interview on Joy Reid's new MSNBC program. Moore also encouraged Joe Biden to act as if he is currently the president like a "shadow government" and start holding a "Morning Meeting" and have fireside-type chats with Americans from his basement.

"If I were advising him, I would tell him just to start running the country right now, just act as if you are the president. That means nobody can assume the election is over," Moore said of Biden. "The basement is fine. Nobody should ridicule the basement. We want him safe."

"I want to caution everyone, do not underestimate the evil genius that is Donald J. Trump," Moore warned. "There are many examples throughout history, whether it's Henry V facing the French on Saint Crispin's Day, they outnumbered him 4 to 1 and he was supposed to lose and he didn't. And or jump ahead to the 1995 NBA playoffs [ed. 1994], the Knicks are ahead with 15 seconds left, way ahead of the Indiana Pacers, and Reggie Miller scores eight points in nine seconds. With 15 seconds left."


Reid and Moore also discussed their appearance on a 2016 episode of 'Real Time' with HBO host Bill Maher where the filmmaker predicted a Trump victory.

"We've been fooled by polls before. Listen, Trump has got a number of tricks up his sleeve to suppress the vote, to try to postpone the election, blaming the coronavirus, to any of the number of things where he will try to weasel his way out of this," Moore said of the election. "And our side, and Joe Biden -- Joe Biden, I think, you know, honestly, if I were advising him, I would tell him just to start running the country right now, just act as if you are the president. That means nobody can assume the election is over. Everybody's got to show up the vote and bring ten people with them."

"But right now every morning we could have a morning meeting with Joe Biden from the basement," Moore proposed. "The basement is fine. Nobody should ridicule the basement. We want him safe, he's doing the smart thing and have the morning meeting with America. Tell us what we're going to do today to save this country. And then, at night sit by the fireside and do what he does best. When you see that emotional, caring part of him in the just the few times I've met him, that's the real deal. You're seeing the real deal there."
