‘You haven’t seen anything yet’: Michael Moore issues stark warning to Trump and ‘Pencey’

Published

on

Michael Moore responded to the Hamilton controversy Monday, warning Donald Trump and Mike “Pencey” they “haven’t seen anything yet.”

Referencing Trump’s tweet in which the president-elect called the cast of the popular Broadway show “very rude” for asking Pence to protect the rights of all Americans, Moore wrote “millions of us are going to be everywhere.”

“You will not get away with what you’re planning to do,” the filmmaker added.

The face-off between the Hamilton cast and Trump over the weekend began when Pence attended the show Friday with his daughter. The vice president-elect was met with a mix of boos and cheers from the audience. During the curtain call, actor Brandon Victor Dixon asked Pence to heed the cast’s plea:

“Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us at ‘Hamilton: An American Musical. We are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. We hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.”

Pence Sunday said he was not offended by the cast’s statement, telling Fox News’s Chris Wallace, “this is what freedom looks like.” But the president-elect took a very different approach; in a series of tweets Saturday, Trump called the play “highly overrated” and demanded cast members apologize to the vice president-elect “for their terrible behavior.” He also insisted “the theater must always be a safe and special place.”

Moore, a frequent critic of Trump who correctly predicted the businessman would win the general election, has called the president-elect “the embodiment of just about every bad trait you could come up with.”

“People should take [a Trump victory] seriously,” Moore warned prior to the election.

Trump’s latest attack on Joe Biden is stunningly delusional — even for him

Published

on

Few ever accuse President Donald Trump of subtlety. But in a new speech in Cleveland on Thursday, he let loose with a particularly wild rant against his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, that was over-the-top, even for him.

It’s worth just quoting in full:

He’s following the radical left agenda. Take away your guns. Destroy your Second Amendment. No religion! No anything! Hurt the Bible! Hurt God! He’s against God! He’s against guns! He’s against energy, our kind of energy. Uh, I don’t think he’s going to do too well in Ohio.

Many people pointed out that there’s much more evidence that Biden is a committed Christian than there is for Trump. But almost that seems to miss several key points about how wild this is:

Angst-ridden Republicans should have acted when Trump put his reelection above national security concerns: conservative columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Thursday, columnist Jennifer Rubin says that Senate Republicans are in serious trouble, especially in light of the stimulus bill they rolled out this week.

According to Rubin, the Senate GOP is in dire straits because "they have allowed the anti-government, anti-science Trump sycophants to disclaim any interest in the bill, thereby handing the reins to Democrats."

Rubin writes that some Republicans saying they want to see essential workers being taken care of in the bill are speaking up too late. "If only they they had some power in February to remove the unfit and corrupt president from office, instead of leaving him there to purge witnesses from his administration, seek vengeance on foes, force out inspectors general and botch the response to the coronavirus," Rubin writes.

Facebook said Thursday it took down accounts running a deceptive campaign out of Romania pretending to be Americans supporting US President Donald Trump ahead of the coming election.

The leading online social network removed 35 Facebook accounts, three pages, and 88 Instagram accounts as part of an ongoing fight against "coordinated inauthentic behavior," according to security policy head Nathaniel Gleicher.

"The people behind this network used fake accounts to pose as Americans, amplify and comment on their own content, and manage pages including some posing as President Trump fan pages," Gleicher said.
