Writing on Facebook, filmmaker Michael Moore expressed outrage that the U.S. has reached such a low-point that people are so numbed by the pronouncements of Donald Trump that they are not in a “state of panic” when he had to assure Americans he’s not working for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Following a report from the New York Times that the FBI opened a secret investigation into a sitting president because they were concerned about his loyalties, Trump denied it while also attacking the FBI.
As Moore wrote, “That this question would even have to be asked — ‘Are you working for Russia, Mr. President?’ — is the shame of Trump’s very existence.”
‘True, he is now on the run, hunted daily by the press, by Mueller, by the new House of Representatives — he is scared, defensive, constantly repeating like a madman, “THERE WAS NO COLLUSION!”— and yesterday he was forced to answer a question never asked before of an American President: Are you an agent of a hostile foreign government?” Moore explained.
Moore also criticized Trump for tweeting support from noted ultra-conservative Patrick Buchanan, who threatened, “The United States, as we have known it, will cease to exist” if Trump’s border wall is not built.
“He said that while discussing how mad he is that he is not getting his wall, and while threatening to use our military to secure our southern border,” Moore wrote. “He was also quoting from a man he once called ‘a Hitler lover’ — Pat Buchanan, who wrote an op-ed defending Trump this weekend.”
Moore then lowered the boom.
“We are probably so overdosed by now on Trump’s comments that we don’t see the utter danger on those days he’s actually trying to tell us something that he truly believes,” he charged. “In this case, in these three statements, that he hates the idea of a federal government, he despises the rule of law, and he longs for the day when he can declare himself autocrat-in-chief.”
“His removal can’t come soon enough,” Moore pronounced.
