Director Michael Moore is vehemently anti-Trump but it appears his disdain for the president is also falling on Democratic presidential candidates who do not stand a chance to beat him.
This, according to Moore, includes Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden.
The Daily Wire reports Moore, during a segment of “The Beat with Ari Melber” on MSNBC, called Joe Biden “this year’s Hillary.”
“Joe Biden is not going to excite the base to get out there and vote on November 3, 2020,” Moore added.
According to the Hollywood director, Biden lacks enthusiasm for the spotlight especially in light of the recently unearthed Ukraine controversy.
“The things that he said publicly are very strong,” Moore said per the Daily Wire. “But it looks like he’s not really wanting to deal with it. He’s afraid to be out there.”
Moore dispelled any wrongdoing by Biden.
“There’s some piece of this that he doesn’t want to deal with in terms of his son and the gas company and all that. And it’s OK,” Moore continued. “It’s been proven that nobody did anything wrong. If he’s embarrassed that the kid of a politician got some help, well, I don’t think anybody [is] sitting there at home right now with their TV dinner going, ‘What? Joe Biden’s son got a good job out of this?’”
Moore said the former vice president should “put the gloves on” and go after Trump.
“[Biden] said the right thing, but he’s got to come out fighting,” he said. “You don’t want a [Michael] Dukakis moment here when they attack your family and you’re trying to be all kumbaya about this. You’ve got to put the gloves on and you’ve got to go after him. And Biden should be out there every single day on this. Don’t be afraid. It’s OK, your son got a good job.”
And, per the Daily Wire:
“We need all the candidates right now — need to be unified and coming at this full force,” he added. “No backing down and no trying to placate the other and none of this, ‘Well we have to wait and see.’”
“Too many people in the summer of 2016 were so sure Hillary [Clinton] was going to win, saying no one is going to vote for this idiot,” Moore told CNN in September 2018. “He could win again. I operate as if he is a two-term Trump. I have to. If you think any other way, you are guaranteeing that whoever is going to run against him will lose.”
“I think the man is an evil genius and he was able to outsmart the smartest person ever to run for president,” Moore said.
