Michael Moore: People don’t trust Democrats anymore

by WorldTribune Staff, October 3, 2016

Voters no longer trust the establishment and many will vote for Donald Trump out of frustration, filmmaker Michael Moore said.

“I don’t think people do trust the Democrats anymore,” Moore said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Oct. 2. “How else does a socialist win 22 states?”

“I mean, in my state of Michigan, Bernie Sanders won. If Hillary Clinton and the Democrats had a tough time with him, that should have been the red flag to everybody that there is a mood out there where people are upset at the Democrats and the Republicans.”

Moore added that “across the Midwest, across the Rustbelt, I understand why a lot of people are angry. And they see Donald Trump as their human Molotov cocktail that they get to go into the voting booth on Nov 8. and throw him into our political system.”

“I think they love the idea of blowing up the system.”

Americans in large numbers also don’t pay attention to the media or “people in power” any longer, Moore said.

“People don’t trust the media, they don’t listen to it, and for good reason — because the media has let them down. The rich and powerful has let them down. A lot of them used to vote for the rich and powerful and they aren’t going to do that anymore.”
