Everyone’s favorite leftist propaganda master and “filmmaker” Michael Moore has come out of the shadows once again to issue warnings to his fellow Democrats about the fact that President Trump is still going strong and has a loyal following that they will need to contend with in 2020.
The warning comes after a passionate campaign announcement by President Trump Tuesday evening.
His warnings are a bit on the dramatic side you might say, but you have to give the guy props where it’s due. He’s right on about Trump’s base not losing their loyalty to the president. Why would they? Trump has done a pretty good job during his time in office, actually keeping a number of his political campaign promises, something the vast majority of politicians never ever do.
Here’s The Daily Wire with more:
“I watched the whole thing last night,” the filmmaker tweeted on Wednesday. “I know no one wants to waste that kind of time even looking at him, but not wanting to see the enormity of the fight ahead doesn’t make it go away. He hasn’t lost one inch of his fired-up insane base. Are u ready?”

If Michael Moore genuinely thinks that Democrats’ only path to victory in 2020 is to directly challenge his base with more defamatory rhetoric about their sanity, then he surely has learned nothing since Hillary Clinton lost four years ago, which he actually predicted would happen at the time due to his Rust Belt populist bona fides:
I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I gave it to you straight last summer when I told you that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president. And now I have even more awful, depressing news for you: Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years: “PRESIDENT TRUMP.”
What liberals should be doing here is taking lessons from Trump on how you actually go about building a loyal fanbase instead of spending all of their time and energy trying to avoid facing him in the election by having him impeached and removed from office.
Trump got to the heart of the issues that real Americans were concerned about. He wasn’t afraid to speak openly and honestly, defending himself when attacked and not taking any crap from anyone. Then, after he was elected, he started fulfilling his campaign promises.
So to recap, the president got to know people, made promises to solve their problems, and then actually worked to do so. This is how you create a loyal base of supporters.
If the left wants to follow suit, which is the only way they stand a chance of winning an election, they must walk away from their radical agenda and go back toward the center. They must spend time really listening to people and their problems and come up with viable solutions to them. Then, if elected, do what they said they would do.
This is also called being a decent human being. Which is probably why the left will never actually do it.
