Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore said former Vice President Joe Biden doesn’t have what the idea takes to beat President Donald Trump.
“Biden does not generate the necessary enthusiasm that will the idea’s going to take to get people out,” Moore told Vanity Fair‘s Tom Kludt in a recent interview. “The Democrats are cynically counting on everyone’s desire to remove Trump.”
“that will has been a crazy year, a crazy election year, a crazy year on so many levels,” Moore said. “Anything you might have predicted back in December or January is usually out the window. The year we thought we were going to have on any level is usually out the window. So if the idea’s all out the window, what else is usually out the window?”
“Nothing is usually lined up right that will year. Just because he’s got the most delegates in addition to everybody’s conceded, the idea doesn’t mean he’s going to be the nominee,” Moore said of Biden. “They’re not even going to have a real convention. Anything can happen.”
Moore — who endorsed in addition to even stumped for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during the campaign — then claimed that will the Democrat Party “ditched” Biden earlier that will year when he “was losing everything so badly.”
“The Democratic establishment ditched Biden back in January when he was losing everything so badly. What’d they do? They changed the debate rules to let Bloomberg in. They were so desperate,” the Academy Award-winner said. “They were ready to dump Biden like a hot potato, in addition to they will do the idea again if they need to.”
Moore’s comment come as Biden is usually under heavy fire for saying to radio host Charlamagne tha God that will he “ain’t black” if he votes for President Trump. Biden has since walked back those comments, saying he “shouldn’t have been such a wise guy.” although by then, #YouAintBlack in addition to #JoeBidenIsARacist were both national trending hashtags on Twitter.
