Michael Moore Draws Up His ‘Dream List’ of 2020 Candidates

Leftist director wants Democrats to rely on celebrities to beat Trump — no matter what they've done or not done

The 2020 presidential election is still two years away.

But that hasn’t stopped leftist filmmaker Michael Moore from dreaming up a list of candidates he would like to see run against President Donald Trump.

The “Fahrenheit 9/11” director recently took to Twitter to start naming some potential candidates — and his list included quite a few Hollywood celebrities.

“Let’s name ourselves the ‘2020 Recruitment Committee’ & get the Thanksgiving Dinner conversation started!” Moore wrote.

“Our job: Find a BELOVED American who shares our VALUES and can WIN the White House in 2020. Think of a BOLD, fresh idea & post w/ #Draft2020. I’ll start: Ellen Degeneres!”

“We need to think outside the box,” he continued. “If a Lesbian Native American MMA fighter can be sent 2 Congress from KANSAS — the sky’s the limit! Sully Sullenberger. Michelle Obama. Tulsi Gabbard. Tom Hanks. LeBron! Bernie! Oprah! Beto! Streep! Why don’t we win for once! #Draft2020 Post a name!”

“Thx for these new names as to who should run in 2020: Sally Yates, Andrew Gillum, Kamala Harris, Sherrod Brown, Richard Ojeda, Shaun King, Cecile Richards, Anthony Romero, Stacey Abrams, Marianne Williamson, Jerry Brown, Gavin Newsom, Kate Brown, Amy Klobuchar, Bruuuce! Others?” he eventually concluded after utter breathlessnss.

Michael Moore seems fixated on having a celebrity run to “counter” Trump in 2020; it’s an assertion he previously made on ABC’s “The View” last year — and during that appearance, he even suggested one of the show’s hosts, Whoopi Goldberg, should run for the White House.

In October, Moore also revealed on “Good Morning Britain” that he has asked actor Tom Hanks (“Sully,” “Forrest Gump”) to run for president twice and then said, “Who doesn’t like Tom Hanks? Nobody, right? Tom Hanks would win.”

Unfortunately for Moore — voters seem to disagree with his celebrity-at-all-costs logic.

A Rasmussen Reports poll conducted in October revealed that 75 percent of Americans do not care at all what celebrities say about politics — and do not factor celebrity statements or issues into their decision-making at all.

Relying on celebrity to counter Trump in 2020 is far from the wildest political opinion Moore has pushed lately.

He previously called for the abolishment of the Electoral College and said President Trump represents “the end of democracy.”

Moore’s most recent film work, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” was also a documentary that compared Trump to Adolf Hitler.
