Michael Moore: How I Moved from Supporting Bernie Sanders to Hillary Clinton for President

Fresh off the presses:

With the U.S. election only days away, Michael Moore has released a surprise new film about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton titled "Michael Moore in TrumpLand." Democracy Now! sat down with the Academy Award-winning filmmaker and talked about how he moved from supporting Bernie Sanders during the primary to now supporting Hillary Clinton. "My hope was that on Tuesday we would have the great decision … between the socialist and the billionaire," Moore says. On Clinton, he notes: "She is a hawk. She is to the right of Obama. That’s the truth. … We’re going to have to be active."

There's also a segment on "Trumpland"

1. I listened to him on Morning Shit this morning, he was the best part.

 

He articulated his support so well.

4. however, in this DN interview, he's actually kind of a downer

 

he's in the "Trump has so much popular support and people are pissed off" mode

2. I have to admit I was depressed when Bernie lost...

But the prospect of a Trump Presidency kicked me in the ass and I knew what I had to do.

3. +1.

I'd have gone third-party if the Republicans would have fielded a moderately sane, if still aberrantly evil candidate.

6. You've got a third AND a fourth party running. Which one are you picking?
