Is Michael Moore still on our side?

What's up with this?

"A frail old man, unable to remember things, stumbling, refusing to answer basic questions," Moore tweeted on Wednesday. "I said it in 2017 and Mueller confirmed it today — All you pundits and moderates and lame Dems who told the public to put their faith in the esteemed Robert Mueller — just STFU from now on."

At this point he is just an ignorant socialist with a big mouth. And unfortunately enough fame to spread the stupid far and wide.

Anything to put his name into media circulation for a few days. I've decided to completely ignore his existence.

To be clear, Crowley was one of the most progressive and powerful house members. Moore is truly ignorant when it comes to politics. He outs himself weekly. Has for years. Most were on the his big money scheme early.

He has a direction that he thinks our country needs to go in, and he's going to give his opinion regardless of if it hurts Democrats.

I do think his analysis of Mueller is wrong (though maybe in line with public perception).

There's going to be disagreement here. We need to stop losing our shit over this kind of petulant crap.

Going back to his "Roger And Me."

He deceptively edited that movie, and has done so many times since then.

He makes tons and tons of money, yet never gave any to the people in Flint.

He added inflammatory text to "Bowling For Columbine," and to "Sicko."

I don't agree with his characterization of Mueller or the Mueller hearings, which I think were an important and successful step.

But I do agree that the idea that Mueller would simehow "save" us was silly.

He was all over the TV relishing in “I told you so now we’re screwed”. Always so freaking negative.

Michael Moore is just another schlub. He has no authority in anything. In that, he's exactly the same as you and me.
