aside Why So Many Americans Voted for Donald Trump According To Michael Moore

Here is the letter from Michael Moore to all the Hillary Clinton supporters:

Friends:

“I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I gave it to you straight last summer when I told you that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president. And now I have even more awful, depressing news for you: Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years: “PRESIDENT TRUMP.”

Never in my life have I wanted to be proven wrong more than I do right now.

“I can see what you’re doing right now. You’re shaking your head wildly – “No, Mike, this won’t happen!” Unfortunately, you are living in a bubble that comes with an adjoining echo chamber where you and your friends are convinced the American people are not going to elect an idiot for president. You alternate between being appalled at him and laughing at him because of his latest crazy comment or his embarrassingly narcissistic stance on everything because everything is about him. And then you listen to Hillary and you behold our very first female president, someone the world respects, someone who is whip-smart and cares about kids, who will continue the Obama legacy because that is what the American people clearly want! Yes! Four more years of this!”

Trying to soothe yourself with the facts – “77% of the electorate are women, people of color, young adults under 35 and Trump cant win a majority of any of them!” – or logic – “people aren’t going to vote for a buffoon or against their own best interests!” – is your brain’s way of trying to protect you from trauma. Like when you hear a loud noise on the street and you think, “oh, a tire just blew out,” or, “wow, who’s playing with firecrackers?” because you don’t want to think you just heard someone being shot with a gun. It’s the same reason why all the initial news and eyewitness reports on 9/11 said “a small plane accidentally flew into the World Trade Center.” We want to – we need to – hope for the best because, frankly, life is already a shit show and it’s hard enough struggling to get by from paycheck to paycheck. We can’t handle much more bad news. So our mental state goes to default when something scary is actually, truly happening. The first people plowed down by the truck in Nice spent their final moments on earth waving at the driver whom they thought had simply lost control of his truck, trying to tell him that he jumped the curb: “Watch out!,” they shouted. “There are people on the sidewalk!”

“Well, folks, this isn’t an accident. It is happening. And if you believe Hillary Clinton is going to beat Trump with facts and smarts and logic, then you obviously missed the past year of 56 primaries and caucuses where 16 Republican candidates tried that and every kitchen sink they could throw at Trump and nothing could stop his juggernaut. As of today, as things stand now, I believe this is going to happen – and in order to deal with it, I need you first to acknowledge it, and then maybe, just maybe, we can find a way out of the mess we’re in.”

“Don’t get me wrong. I have great hope for the country I live in. Things are better. The left has won the cultural wars. Gays and lesbians can get married. A majority of Americans now take the liberal position on just about every polling question posed to them: Equal pay for women – check. Abortion should be legal – check. Stronger environmental laws – check. More gun control – check. Legalize marijuana – check. A huge shift has taken place – just ask the socialist who won 22 states this year. And there is no doubt in my mind that if people could vote from their couch at home on their X-box or PlayStation, Hillary would win in a landslide.”

And if they live in poor, Black or Hispanic neighborhoods, they not only have a longer line to wait in, everything is being done to literally stop them from casting a ballot. So in most elections it’s hard to get even 50% to turn out to vote. And therein lies the problem for November – who is going to have the most motivated, most inspired voters show up to vote? You know the answer to this question. Who’s the candidate with the most rabid supporters? Whose crazed fans are going to be up at 5 AM on Election Day, kicking ass all day long, all the way until the last polling place has closed, making sure every Tom, Dick and Harry (and Bob and Joe and Billy Bob and Billy Joe and Billy Bob Joe) has cast his ballot?  That’s right. That’s the high level of danger we’re in. And don’t fool yourself — no amount of compelling Hillary TV ads, or outfacting him in the debates or Libertarians siphoning votes away from Trump is going to stop his mojo.”

Disclaimer: Although I am questioning the validity of the 2016 presidential election results as per my previous blog, “ALERT: There Is No Way Donald Trump Won The Hispanic Vote By 29%,” this does not diminish the truth behind Michael Moore’s reasoning as to why folks voted for Mr. Trump.

Michael Moore’s parting shot to democrats: ““Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably,” Moore wrote. “Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn’t let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on. Those same bloviators will now tell us we must ‘heal the divide’ and ‘come together.’ They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. Turn them off.”

    • Dear JoAnn,

      I feel sufficiently bloviated. I am so angry that no one in the media (print or TV) seemed to have read this right. We were unprepared for this trauma. The TV pundits treated this contest like a horse race instead of doing some reality based informing to their public. I am turning off any and all TV news for a couple of days in protest and because I just can’t stand watching this presidential transition process.

      Hugs, Gronda.

  1. I was following Michael Moore for a time early on, and then I just got busy, wrapped up, and didn’t see his posts for the last 4-6 months of the election season. He’s a smart man, but had I seen this at the time, I would have been in denial like the rest of us who think with our brains. I was so sure that at the end of the day, Hillary had it locked down. I still think she would have won but for James Comey, but what’s done is done, and now I’m trying to figure where we go next. Where we take the next battle, for there will always be a next battle. Great post, Gronda! Hugs!!!

    Wow, quite a prophetic, astute and honest assessment by Michael Moore! While I don’t agree with his politics, I do respect MM’s rationale and clear insight.
    The DNC hijacked the primaries for Hilary, denying the ppl’s choice in Sanders, that was their fatal mistake! I can only imagine how many more swing voters would have came out to elect Bernie for President.
    Most of my friends and I were so disgusted with the “lesser of two evils” candidates, we decided to boycott this rotten election. I’m sure many fellow Americans felt the same way, as voter turnout was the lowest in 20 yrs.
    There’s an old adage in politics: we all deserve our leaders, for better or worse.

    • Dear 1EarthUnited,

      It is obvious that I believe the US peoples deserve better. We all want what’s best for this country. DT will definitely shake things up but I am concerned that he will be lining the pockets of the 1% which includes himself and not really lift up the peoples he promised to help.

      Thanks a million for the reblog..

      Ciao, Gronda
