Throughout a 40 minute conversation we spoke with Moore about Trump's odds of reelection, Bob Dylan, George W. Bush, Stanley Kubrick and why he really wishes he never lost touch with one particular ex-girlfriend.
Who are your heroes?
What was your favorite book as a child and what does it say about you?
What advice do you wish you could give yourself at age 21? Oh my God ... um ... Call Lynn Sharon and go out with her more. That's spelled L-y-n-n S-h-a-r-o-n ...
Publicist: Are you sure that's not off the record?
No. I don't care. What does it matter at this age?
- Is there anything about Donald Trump that you admire?
[Long Pause] I am pausing to think because he's a human being and I am trying to see if there is some place where I can give him the benefit of the doubt. Every human deserves that. Having thought about it, no.
- Imagine you're talking to an unemployed factory worker in Michigan and he says, "I love Trump. He speaks his mind. He understands my anger. He's shaking things up. I don't care things aren't getting through Congress. My life didn't get better under Bill Clinton, George W. Bush or Barack Obama. I wanted something completely different and I don't regret it."
Message delivered. You got your message through. Everybody has heard you loud and clear. You threw a Molotov Cocktail into the system and now he is in the process of blowing everything up. So congratulations, you have succeeded.
But now what are we going to do? Because you really don't want him to take away your healthcare, do you? And you really don't want him to take away your pension or your Medicare when you are old. You don't want any of that to happen.
So now everybody has got the message, let's fix this. Let's figure out what we can do because you know he's not the answer. You know he's not actually fixing anything. You have [been] done in by the system and you have a right to be angry.
