Following a screening of Michael Moore’s new documentary, “Where To Invade Next,” at the New York Film Festival on Friday, the always-opinionated filmmaker had a few thoughts about the current presidential election.
When a question came to Moore at the press conference about the Republican candidates, he couldn’t help but give his thoughts.
“Oh, don’t worry about them,” Moore told the audience. “Seventy-nine percent of the United States are either women, people of color, or people between the ages of 18 and 30. That’s the blocks you have to win to get elected. Donald Trump, he has none of those blocks. He can’t win the majority of any of those.”
Moore believes what people should be worried about is the turnout by the Democrats.
“We don’t show up,” Moore said of the party. “We’re the slacker side of politics. Our side didn’t show up at the congressional elections, that’s why they have the house and the senate. That’s how the Republicans win, that’s the only way they can win.”
Moore’s “Where To Invade Next” follows the filmmaker as he travels to other countries to show how many of them are better than the US in matters such as medical coverage, school systems, and workers’ benefits.
