On Wednesday, during an appearence on MSNBC’s show with Chris Hayes, the controversial documentarian film-maker, Michael Moore, doubled down on his comments where he suggested that it’s possible Donald Trump would be the United States’ last head of state.
Moore seemed to insinuate that Trump’s administration is so anathema to the political system that he and the rest of his team will bring the country crashing down.
In August, Moore released a trailer for his upcoming movie, Fahrenheit 11/9, where, in the advertisement, he said that Trump was the “last president of the United States.”
During a conversation with Chris Hayes, Moore elaborated on his original point. “I think it’s possible, absolutely,” the director remarked. According to Michael, Trump doesn’t respect the rule of law and doesn’t like democracy either.
Moore said that such a claim makes sense too because Trump and other billionaires run companies that are nothing like democracies. Michael added that people such as Trump “rule by fiat,” and dislike when subordinates speak their mind in the decision making process.
According to the filmmaker, Trump being the president of the United States is a “very dangerous thing,” because he “doesn’t have an ideology.” However, Moore never explained how Trump could be the last president.
When Chris pressed him on the matter, the director added that Pence would the next in line, and while he doesn’t like that idea, at least Pence “believes in something.”
In Moore’s latest movie, he conjured up the theory that Gwen Stefani’s salary is the reason for why Trump decided to become the president of the United States.
His theory is that Trump found out Gwen was receiving more money than him for The Voice, so he decided to run for the presidency as a way of negotiating with NBC for more cash, and not because he needed it, but just for his ego.
