Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A powerful, if not particularly cinematic, case for voting for Hillary.

The political provocateur's stealth project documents his recent live performances in an Ohio theater, and calls on voters to embrace Hillary Clinton.

Michael Moore has dropped an October surprise on moviegoers in the form of his stealth project documenting his recent live performances at a theater in Ohio. Featuring a mixture of stand-up comedy, political observation, and ultimately a full-throttle tribute to Hillary Clinton.

Michael Moore in TrumpLand earns points for ultra-timeliness and its admirable attempt to raise the level of discourse in this deeply polarizing election. But despite Moore's obvious desire to reach out to Trump voters, disaffected Bernie followers, those leaning toward third-party candidates, and people who intend to sit out the election entirely, this cinematic lecture is unlikely to change many hearts or minds…which is more the pity.

Carefully refraining from directly criticizing the Republican presidential nominee, Moore compares disaffected Americans to those Brits who voted for Brexit, saying that they "used the ballot box as an anger management tool."

And he says that if Trump is elected the voters will have declared "the biggest 'f -- k you' ever recorded in human history."

Moore has his own nice thing to say about her: "I'm glad she killed Vince Foster," he announces to startled laughter.

He proceeds to lampoon the many conspiracy theories that have sprung up about her supposed trail of bodies, referencing one internet site claiming that she's been involved in the deaths of 46 people.

Enthusing over her "badass" credentials, he crows, "ISIS is gonna shit if she's president!"

But he turns deadly serious when delivering an impassioned paean to Hillary's efforts to bring about healthcare reform.

Citing a statistic to the effect that some 50,000 Americans die needlessly each year, either because of inadequate or no health insurance, he declares it a national disgrace.

Comparing Hillary to the current leader of the Catholic Church, he tells the crowd, "She can be our Pope Francis."

And he stares directly into the camera, as if addressing Hillary personally, telling her, "You're not alone."

Poor Mikey. Now an Instant LINO to alt lefties.

But he's in good liberal company with Bernie and Liz Warren and Noam Chomsky.... voting strategically; putting the best interests of the country over their own personal preferences. Very unselfish, very civic minded.

Good job, Micky!

ISIS is gonna be so happy if HRC takes the POTUS spot. They get so much funding from the Saudis and Qataris, who in turn give to HRC, that they will just see their coffers overflow.

Hillary Endless War Clinton...yeehawww!!!

It's such a fine example of cognitive dissonance when a Trumpette who supports Donald's vision of 30K US troops on the ground in the ME and talking the Generals into letting him use nukes over there makes warmonger claims about Clinton.

It's clinical.

Before anyone draws a false equivalence, Moore's anti Trump movie is completely different than the anti Hillary that spawned the CU decision. Because it's OK when the left does propaganda in support of Democrats.

What's most amusing is that you believe MM has the ability to persuade anyone beyond his own choir.

Were it not for the Citizens United ruling MM would be in violation of law for releasing this now.

As he indicates, it's his own choir he is out to persuade.

But then, I guess that some people are just farther left than Bernie, Liz, Noam, and Michael.

Or more selfish.
