Donald Trump’s election to the presidency is truly frightening — but filmmaker Michael Moore actually predicted Trump’s victory, and his voice bears hearing on the day after.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Moore issued his usual fiery rhetoric about fighting Republicans to the hilt next year — but he also had some tough words for liberals who feel completely stunned by the results.

Essentially, Moore thinks that many on the left are out of touch with their fellow Americans — particularly the Americans who live in rural areas who came out in droves to support Trump.

“Everyone must stop saying they are ‘stunned’ and ‘shocked,'” he writes. “What you mean to say is that you were in a bubble and weren’t paying attention to your fellow Americans and their despair. YEARS of being neglected by both parties, the anger and the need for revenge against the system only grew. Along came a TV star they liked whose plan was to destroy both parties and tell them all ‘You’re fired!'”

Moore also slams liberals who didn’t take Trump’s candidacy seriously from the start — and said they should have immediately recognized the threat he posed.

“He was never a joke,” Moore says. “Treating him as one only strengthened him. He is both a creature and a creation of the media and the media will never own that.”

San Mateo county outside San Francisco will also be subject to the same rules after the state of California classified both under its most restrictive tier of locations based on the spread of the virus.

In addition to the curfew, certain indoor businesses will be required to either close or reduce capacity beginning on Sunday at noon, Breed said.

19 million Americans could lose their homes as Congress refuses to act before Dec. 31 deadline

Published

As Congress remains on Thanksgiving vacation, millions of Americans are in danger of losing their homes.

"Millions of Americans are in danger of losing their homes when federal and local limits on evictions expire at the end of the year, a growing body of research shows. A report issued this month from the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) and the University of Arizona estimates that 6.7 million households could be evicted in the coming months. That amounts to 19 million people potentially losing their homes, rivaling the dislocation that foreclosures caused after the subprime housing bust," CBS News reported Saturday.

What can the left expect from a Biden-Harris administration? Pretty much nothing

Published

On Nov. 7 of this year, the United States let out a collective roar that rippled across the nation, resonating the crowds of blue-clad people swelling the streets and the squares, and causing buildings to tremble as those inside broke out the champagne and began to dance. The celebrations lasted long into the night. For those few precious moments, it felt as though a curse had been lifted, a nightmare abated. Trumpism had ground itself to a resounding and decisive halt and it seemed that political space on the left, and on the center ground, had finally begun to open again.
