    • you going for porkie of the day/week/month there chooky..?

      (this from yr link:..’I gather by the end of his film Moore endorses Hillary, but from this clip you’d expect maybe he’ll do something else in the voting booth’.

      did you not read that far..?…is/was the headline enough..?

      moore was using that as an example of the populist policies trump is getting cut-through with…

      ..not saying he is voting for trump..

      ..who are you trying to fool chooky..?..yrslf..?

      ..and sheesh..! do go trawling thru some swamps for yr links..don’t you..? little trumpster/repeater of far-right garbage

        • that’s a tad rich coming from an oxymoronicaly-named alt-right-trump-nz first

          my archives @ whoar show that since 2005 i have been detailing the failings of the clintons..

          and for the presidency i first wanted elizabeth warren..then bernie…then anyone but trump..which brings us to clinton..

          ..but by thinking with a little bit more depth than a petrie dish..i have taken into account two facts..

          one being the raft of reforms/change sanders wrangled from trump..sanders said the other day/waving the democratic party policy-agenda in the air: ‘i support 80% of this..!’..

          and this is what bernie said yesterday..

          whereas you and chooky are to detail why/how he is better than clinton would be..?

          on just the minumum wage a clinton presidency will see a major boost in the minimum wage – which will lift a lot od low-wage workers out of poverty in one fell swoop..

          ..whereas your man..the ‘short-fingered vulgarian’..promises to do away with the/any minimum-wage..which will drive millions into poverty,,

          ..and to give the biggest tax cuts to the richest in american history..

          ..and this is what you feckin’ support..?…you two new zealand first/peters admirers..?

          this isn’t a feckin’ game…

      • Ha Ha Suckers …Trump will WIN!… ( I have a $100 bet on it)

        ‘5 REASONS WHY Trump WILL WIN’ by Michael Moore

        ‘Donald Trump will win US Presidential election, predicts hugely accurate AI machine’

        ‘Donald Trump will win, claims man who correctly predicted almost every US presidential election’

        • Chooky… With respect, When quoting Michael Moore, context is important. Moore despairs at the horror of a Trump presidency;

          I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I gave it to you straight last summer when I told you that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president. And now I have even more awful, depressing news for you: Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years: “PRESIDENT TRUMP.”


          Remember back in the ‘90s when the people of Minnesota elected a professional wrestler as their governor? They didn’t do this because they’re stupid or thought that Jesse Ventura was some sort of statesman or political intellectual. They did so just because they could. Minnesota is one of the smartest states in the country. It is also filled with people who have a dark sense of humor — and voting for Ventura was their version of a good practical joke on a sick political system. This is going to happen again with Trump.

          This will be one of those moments in history when people wake up on 9 November with a massive hangover, with the vaguest memory of doing something incredibly stupid the previous day.

          If anyone thought narcissists like Clayton Weatherston were evil enough – a presidential version will have his fingers poised above the nuclear Big Red Button.

          I pray to whatever gods exist (Jehovah? Allah? Thor? Anyone?!) that silos containing atomic missiles are crewed by people like this; and this

          Because this is what Moore also had to say on Trump;

          But her vote for the Iraq War made me promise her that I would never vote for her again. To date, I haven’t broken that promise. For the sake of preventing a proto-fascist from becoming our commander-in-chief, I’m breaking that promise. I sadly believe Clinton will find a way to get us in some kind of military action. She’s a hawk, to the right of Obama. But Trump’s psycho finger will be on The Button, and that is that.

    • It’s not an endorsement of Trump. The selected clip that has Trump supporters in a frenzy is of M. Moore saying why some people support Trump. It is part of a film and what Moore said has been taken out of context.

  1. Thanks chooky – what Mike Moore says is exactly what I believe is going to happen… This is going to the USA’s briexit moment. Don’t have to wait long now to see if (sadly) I’m right.
