Michael Moore: ‘History Will Not Be Kind’ to Republicans for Working with ‘Traitor’ Trump
Liberal director is happy Dems have regained some power
Filmmaker Michael Moore believes history will not be so kind to the Republicans who are working with President Donald Trump for the good of the country.
And he’s going out of his way to share that message.
“We are less than 15 hours away from taking the keys to the Clown Car away from the House Republicans,” Moore tweeted on Wednesday ahead of the Democratic takeover of the House.
“They will be sent to the Time Out room to think about their silence & collaboration with a traitor to all that we believe America is and can be.”
The “Canadian Bacon” director added, “History will not be kind to them.”

Moore is one of Trump’s most outspoken Hollywood critics — and one of the most extreme, too.
He previously compared Trump to Adolf Hitler in his flop of a movie “Fahrenheit 11/9” — and he’s even suggested Trump could be the last president of a free America.
Asked about suggesting that Trump could be “the last president of the United States,” Moore told MSNBC in an interview, “I think it’s possible, absolutely. I think that we have someone in the White House who has no respect for the rule of law, who dislikes democracy by an incredible degree — which doesn’t make him really any that much different from other billionaires or CEOs because their businesses are not democracies.”
The controversial filmmaker continued, “They rule by fiat. They decide, they make the calls, and they don’t like anybody else having a say. They also like to take home the bulk of the money with them.”
He added, “So this is — putting somebody like that in charge of a democracy is a very dangerous thing, and especially, it’s more dangerous with him because he has a complete lack of ideology.”
Moore is best known for directing the documentary hits “Fahrenheit 9/11” and “Bowling for Columbine.”
The former film is the highest grossing documentary of all time; it earned over $119 million when it was released in 2004.
Moore has struggled to maintain the same level of success in recent years. His Trump-focused projects, such as “Fahrenheit 11/9” and “Michael Moore in TrumpLand,” barely made a dent with audiences. And a Broadway show also flopped.
Moore has directed only one scripted film, “Canadian Bacon,” and it’s one of his biggest flops.
Moore has suggested Tom Hanks, Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama as potential 2020 candidates to go up against Trump for the presidency.
