Michael Moore, Trump Both Blast Democratic National Committee For Latest Move ‘Rigging’ Game Against Bernie

Michael Moore and President Trump can at least agree on one thing: the Democratic National Committee is up to more nefarious antics in its handling of candidates, particularly democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), whom Trump has repeatedly said is being deliberately undermined by the Democratic Party machine.

In a speech that has turned some heads for its explosive nature — and one prominent F-bomb — left-wing documentarian Michael Moore unloaded on the DNC at a pre-caucus rally for his candidate of choice, Bernie, in Iowa on Friday. Moore’s specific complaint, as The Daily Wire reported, was the DNC’s new decision to remove some debate requirements, allowing self-funded billionaire candidate Michael Bloomberg, who has climbed to fourth in the polls, to participate in the next debate.

“The D.N.C. announced Friday that in order to participate in the debate, set for Feb. 19 in Las Vegas, a candidate must win at least a single delegate in either the Iowa caucuses or the New Hampshire primary or meet polling requirements,” The New York Times reported Friday. “It has eliminated the requirement that candidates must have received donations from hundreds of thousands of individuals. Mr. Bloomberg, a multibillionaire, is running a self-funded campaign and is not soliciting donations.”

“They removed it so that [Bloomberg] could be in the next debate,” an enraged Moore declared at a Bernie rally in Clive, Iowa on Friday. “He doesn’t have to show he has any support amongst the American people.”

“He can just buy his way onto the debate and I got to tell what’s so disgusting about this,” Moore exclaimed. “I watched the debate in Iowa here two weeks, the all-white debate, and the fact that Democratic, the DNC will not allow Cory Booker on that stage, will not allow Julian Castro on that stage, but they’re going to allow Mike Bloomberg on the stage because he’s got a billion f***ing dollars!”

Following a trend dating back since early reports of the DNC torpedoing Sanders in 2016 in favor of Hillary Clinton, Trump posted a series of tweets over the weekend hitting the committee for its treatment of the Vermont senator, who has recently surpassed longtime frontrunner Joe Biden in some polls.

“Many of the ads you are watching were paid for by Mini Mike Bloomberg. He is going nowhere, just wasting his money, but he is getting the DNC to rig the election against Crazy Bernie, something they wouldn’t do for [Cory Booker] and others,” Trump said, echoing Moore’s complaint. “They are doing it to Bernie again, 2016.”

“Mini Mike is now negotiating both to get on the Democrat Primary debate stage, and to have the right to stand on boxes, or a lift, during the debates,” Trump added in a follow-up post. “This is sometimes done, but really not fair!”

Trump continued to hit the issue of the DNC “rigging” the game against Sanders on Monday morning in a post quoting “Fox and Friends” co-host Steve Doocy: “The DNC on Bernie Sanders, ‘Looks like they’re going to do it to him again, doesn’t it?'”
