Michael Moore is not known for his subtlety, but in a recent email sent to supporters of MoveOn.org announcing the “People’s State of the Union” protest (which, ironically, features mostly Hollywood celebrities and leftist commentators), Moore may have truly authored an unhinged masterpiece.
The “People’s State of the Union” will be held Monday night, the night before President Donald Trump gives his address to a joint session of Congress and to the nation. And although far-left celebrity organizer Mark Ruffalo has promised “a more populist point of view, based on the people’s point of view,” Moore seems to be going for Trump’s throat.
““Donald J. Trump has proven himself to be completely unfit for office, a threat to our country, and an imminent danger to the world. He is not well; he is a malignant narcissist and an active sociopath,” Moore writes, clearly through gritted teeth.
“And because he holds the codes to fire nuclear weapons, he is a singular threat to humanity,” Moore continues.
That’s right. Trump is not simply wrong, he is “unfit for office,” and an “imminent” threat to all of humanity. The obviously-qualified-to-give-a-psychological assessment Moore, has also personally determined that Donald Trump has a loss of mental faculties, which could either be “malignant” narcissism, or the signs of being an “active sociopath.”
Asking each of MoveOn.org’s donors for a paltry $3, Moore goes on to extoll the virtues of the “resistance,” which has been instrumental in doing nearly nothing to derail Donald Trump’s presidential agenda.
“But our problems go far beyond one sociopath president. The mission that we are on and the work that we must do is to tear down the rigged system that produced Trump in the first place. We must imagine the America that we want to live in. We must create the post-Trump America,” he says. “And this is actually possible: The fierce, determined Resistance movement that began after Trump’s election could create an avalanche at the polls this November.”
The rest of the email is rather self-congratulatory, failing to mention that most of Moore’s own “resistance” efforts have failed miserably.
His documentary, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” was shelved indefinitely after it’s distributor and financier, Harvey Weinstein, was alleged to have sexually harassed, abused, and even raped dozens of women. The Weinstein Company will not allow Moore to take the film elsewhere until he repays $2 million that Weinstein loaned him to begin production.
Moore’s one-man Broadway play, “The Terms of My Surrender,” shuttered in October after a miserable 12-week run, answering the filmmaker’s own question: “Can A Broadway Show Bring Down A Sitting President?”
Donald Trump is still in office, so that’s a firm “no.”
