Michael Moore to Dems: Block Gorsuch or Else

"You will filibuster & block this SC"

Propagandist filmmaker Michael Moore has issued a dire warning to Democrats: block Trump's SCOTUS pick Neil Gorsuch or be replaced by a "true progressive" come the next primary. 

"This Supreme Court pick was Obama’s to make and it was stolen by Republicans. Democrats had better block this and demand a nom we approve," Moore tweeted to his 3.8 million Twitter followers.

"Senate Dems, let’s be very clear: You will filibuster & block this SC nom or we will find a true progressive and primary u in next election."


Moore's warning is largely consistent with the call to action he made shortly after Trump's election in November, advising all Democrats to block Trump or "step out of the way" for a true believer. The "stolen" seat lament echoes that of Sen. Jeff Merkley.

"Not only is this a stolen seat, but @realDonaldTrump has nominated a far right extremist. Unacceptable," Merkley tweeted Wednesday.
