Michael Moore: Cory Booker, Kamala Harris Can't Beat Trump In 2020 — But Michelle Obama Can

We know Election Day was just 48 hours ago, but we still can't get rid of Michael Moore.

The hyper-liberal documentary film director is back with more advice for Democrats.

Moore said on Wednesday that Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker can't beat President Trump in 2020, so the party should rethink its strategy.

When MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski asked Moore about Harris, he said: "No. Love her. No, not going to happen. Cory — love him. No. We cannot run a politician against [Trump]. We will lose.”

Instead, he said Democrats should run a “beloved American."

"We have to run a beloved American. Obama became beloved the night of that convention and he was beloved from that moment on. It’s got to be like a Michelle Obama or a Sully Sullenberger," Moore said. Sullenberger is the former American airline captain who in 2009 landed U.S. Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River off Manhattan after both engines were knocked out of commission by a bird strike.

“Why aren’t we thinking along the lines of ‘Who can defeat him?’ We will lose in 2020,” he added. "We still haven’t heard the name that can win."

Moore had more to say about Trump after the election, in which Democrats took control of the House.

“I think he is a tumor on our democracy,” Moore said. “But the tumor shrank last night. He has ripped apart and has taken us to the precipice of whether or not we are going to have the country we thought we used to have or that we were going to have.”

“I come from one of those three states — Michigan — that put him over the top in the electoral college vote,” Moore said. “Last night, those three states — Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin … all went blue.”

In September, Moore said he thinks Trump will win re-election in 2020 and serve for two terms in the White House.

"Too many people in the summer of 2016 were so sure Hillary [Clinton] was going to win, saying no one is going to vote for this idiot," Moore said. "He could win again. I operate as if he is a two-term Trump. I have to. If you think any other way you are guaranteeing that whoever is going to run against him will lose."

Moore said he thinks Trump is "an evil genius and he was able to outsmart the smartest person ever to run for president."

"He figured out how to win by losing the election. How did that happen? Historians are going to deal with this for years to come."
