Michael Moore sure does love to bloviate on a wide range of subjects – all with the express intent of manufacturing a more liberal narrative for the throngs of young people who still flock to his films.
This has put Moore in the crosshairs of just about everyone over the course of his filmmaking career, with a particular hatred for President Donald Trump bubbling to the surface of his being in recent months. The Bowling for Columbine director is back with a new film, Fahrenheit 11/9, in which he attempts to decipher how the nation ended up here, with President Trump.
Moore simply can’t take the fact that Trump won the election based on the will of We The People. In fact, Moore seems to believe that Gwen Stefani, singer of 90’s rock icons No Doubt, may be to blame.
Moore posits that Trump’s now infamous Trump Tower campaign announcement was an effort to prove his popularity to NBC after allegedly learning that Stefani’s performance fees as a coach on “The Voice” were larger than his on “The Apprentice,” which aired its final season with him as the host in 2015.“He’d been talking about running for president since 1988, but he didn’t really want to be president. There’s no penthouse in the White House. And he doesn’t want to live in a black city,” Moore told the magazine. “He was trying to pit NBC against another network, but it just went off the rails.”
Unfortunately, Moore does not back up his claim, but presumably lays out his case more in depth in his upcoming film.
Well, this certainly is a new one, and bizarre…even for the already strange Moore.
Perhaps we can credit the booming economy to Pearl Jam next?
As for Michael Moore, perhaps he should do some more research into No Doubt. Here; let me help:
