Michael Moore: Trump Sabotaging Campaign on Purpose

“I know this for a fact.”

Documentary filmmaker and leftist loudmouth Michael Moore has inside information, from whom he wouldn’t say, that Donald Trump is purposely sabotaging his campaign because he never wanted to be president in the first place.

In a blog post on his website, MichaelMoore.com, the progressive producer said:

Donald Trump never actually wanted to be President of the United States. I know this for a fact. I’m not going to say how I know it. I’m not saying that Trump and I shared the same agent or lawyer or stylist or, if we did, that that would have anything to do with anything. And I’m certainly not saying that I ever overheard anything at those agencies or in the hallways of NBC or anywhere else. But there are certain people reading this right now, they know who they are, and they know that every word in the following paragraphs actually happened.

So, with that vague sourcing out of the way, Moore makes his argument that it’s all about the money for Trump and making future deals. Moore believes that it was Trump’s dissatisfaction with his deal surrounding his Apprentice television franchise that was the motivation behind his announcement to enter the race. 

“He had floated the idea before of possibly running for president in the hopes that the attention from that would make his negotiating position stronger,” Moore states. “But he knew, as the self-proclaimed king of the dealmakers, that saying you’re going to do something is bupkus — DOING it is what makes the bastards sit up and pay attention.”

“Of course he wouldn’t really have to RUN for President,” Moore continued, “just make the announcement, hold a few mega-rallies that would be packed with tens of thousands of fans, and wait for the first opinion polls to come in showing him — what else! — in first place! And then he would get whatever deal he wanted, worth millions more than what he was currently being paid.”

But Moore said his plan backfired once he began “calling Mexicans ‘rapists’ and ‘drug dealers” and pledging to build a wall to keep them all out.” NBCUniversal ended its relationship with Trump.

“BOOM,” Moore celebrates.

Then he said Trump continued forward to “increase his ‘value’” to other networks, never thinking he would actually win any of the primaries and certainly not the Republican nomination. “And then something happened,” Moore said:

Trump, to his own surprise, ignited the country, especially among people who were the opposite of billionaires. He went straight to #1 in the polls of Republican voters. Up to 30,000 boisterous supporters started showing up to his rallies. TV ate it up. He became the first American celebrity to be able to book himself on any show he wanted to be on — and then NOT show up to the studio!

… Trump fell in love with himself all over again, and he soon forgot his mission to get a good deal for a TV show. A TV show? Are you kidding – that’s for losers like Chris Harrison, whoever that is (host of “The Bachelorette”). He was no longer king of the dealmakers — he was King of the World! His tiniest musings would be discussed and dissected everywhere by everybody for days, weeks, months! THAT never happened on “The Apprentice”! Host a TV show? He was the star of EVERY TV SHOW — and, soon, winning nearly every primary!

Moore then believes Trump had an “Oh, sh**!” revelation once it dawned on him that his path to a presidency he didn’t want was barreling straight for him. It first showed itself in his speech after winning New Jersey, according to Moore.

“Instead of it being one of his loud, brash speeches, it was downright depressing,” the filmmaker said. “No energy, no happiness, just the realization that now he was going to have to go through with this stunt that he started. It was no longer going to be performance art. He was going to have to go to work.”

With that revelation, Moore believes Trump began sabotaging his own campaign ever since by ramping up the “racist, sexist, stupid comments” every week in hopes that “he’ll have to bow out or blame ‘others’ for forcing him out.”

Moore declares that Trump will lose on election night and even more so than making a good deal, Trump will never allow himself to be labeled a “LOSER!” and would rather drop out than face that possibility. 

And how can we trust Moore, who wouldn’t, or couldn’t, cite any source for this bombshell allegation?

“Trust me, I’ve met the guy. Spent an afternoon with him. He would rather invite the Clintons AND the Obamas to his next wedding than have that scarlet letter (“L”) branded on his forehead seconds after the last polls have closed on that night, the evening of the final episode of the permanently canceled Donald Trump Sh*t-Show."
