Documentary filmmaker and progressive activist Michael Moore could hardly be more excited in regards to the upcoming midterms, which he predicts shall be a landslide victory for the Democrats.
But there’s a key caveat: “Everybody needs to indicate up,” Moore said Friday on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” And “you have to bring five to 10 individuals with you on election day. Bring beer, make it a fun thing, have a celebration afterwards, whatever.”
Still, he emphasized: “I actually have never felt this optimistic.”
Moore identified that he was booed on Maher’s program six years earlier when he predicted Donald Trump would win the presidency.
“I feel I had a reasonably good sense of what was gonna occur. I feel the other is gonna occur this time,” Moore said. “I feel that there’s going to be such a landslide against the traitors, especially the 147 Republicans who, just hours after the riot, voted to not certify the elected president of the USA, Joe Biden.”
Moore added: “I feel that there’s going to be so many individuals coming out to vote. I wanna thank the Supreme Court for reminding women they’re in reality second-class residents, and taking their rights away like this . . . I feel there’s gonna’ be such an enormous turnout of ladies.”
Maher joked that for the primary time the midterm elections are “sexy” because the USA is actually on “the brink of disaster,” which is, weirdly, a “shiny spot” since it’s prone to prove voters.
And there are “so many signs” of an upcoming Democratic victory, Moore said.
“I truthfully think if all of us do our work, and if all of us get people to get on the market, and get on the market ourselves, we’ve got a probability to do something,” Moore said. “I feel we could throw out an enormous variety of these Republican traitors in November.”
