Michael Moore Claims That Only Michelle Obama Can ‘Crush’ Trump

Filmmaker Michael Moore is sounding an alarm over the current crop of Democrat candidates, claiming former first lady Michelle Obama is the only one who can “crush” Trump in 2020.

The odds of that happening are about on par with Moore’s walking past the next buffet table without drooling a bit.

“The only way to remove Trump is to crush Trump,” he said in an interview with MSNBC.

“And that’s the question that has to be asked: Who can crush Trump? Who’s the street fighter?”

If he says a black candidate is a “street” fighter, that would be racist, no? There’s no way he’d go there, right?

He went there.

“In fact, it is Obama — Michelle Obama,” Moore said. “Everybody watching this right now knows she is a beloved American and she would go in there and she would beat him.”

While the rotund director believes candidates such as former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) could beat Trump, Mrs. Obama is the only one who could do so rather easily, in his mind.

Why? Because the president wouldn’t be able to label her with a nickname.

“She would beat him in the debates. He wouldn’t be able to bully her. He wouldn’t be able to nickname her,” Moore said.

Do you think Trump would be able to come up with some nicknames? And does he honestly believe Michelle Obama could tangle with him during the debates?

“She takes the stage and she’s so powerful and so good you just look at that and think, ‘Of course she could win,'” Moore fawned.

Sure, Moore is a bit kookier than usual, in our view; he’s clearly dismayed over the conclusions of the Russia collusion hoax. But is he right about this? Could Michelle Obama run AND beat Trump?

One of the earliest advocates for Michelle was top Clinton confidante and Democrat pollster Doug Schoen.

The year 2020 “requires a new, united opposition, led by a political leader with widespread popularity,” Schoen surmised. “The only person I can see accomplishing this would be none other than the party’s most popular political figure: Michelle Obama.”

There certainly is an element of the Left that would rally around the country’s first black female presidential candidate — based solely on gender and skin color, not on qualifications. They would ignore her history of statements portraying America as a place of which she was never proud. They’d ignore her school lunch initiatives that failed miserably. And they’d ignore all of Trump’s accomplishments in his first term.

Number-one fan. Michael Moore might come a close second, but clearly the number-one fan of Michelle Obama is … Michelle Obama.

She’s bragged that she can give “a good speech” and that she’s “smart and intelligent.” She has also suggested a good investment for the country would be to “invest in creating thousands of ‘me’s.'”

“We don’t just need one, we need thousands and thousands,” Obama said.

Perish the thought.

“She takes the stage and she’s so powerful and so good you just look at that and think, ‘Of course she could win,'” Moore fawned.

Would she ever take the plunge and run in 2020?
