A Hollywood celebrity is once again in hot water after using an anecdote about rapists in talking about Trump voters. The exchange took place in an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon.
Michael Moore was asked if he believes President Trump is a racist. He replied that the President “absolutely is a racist.”
“He’s not as stupid as people want to believe he is. He knows exactly what he’s doing, he knows the words to use and I’m certain the 63 million people who voted for him actually — the vast majority of them — love that press conference,” Moore said.
The interview was addressing race issues in America after the recent tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia. When Lemon told Moore that a lot of Trump supporters take offense to being called racists, Michael Moore said the unthinkable.
“If you hold down the woman while the rapist is raping her, but you didn’t rape her, are you a rapist?” Moore asked in response to Lemon.
Moore went on to say that people who still support President Trump are racists. He compared voters to rape watchers by alluding to President Trump being the rapist. He also blamed “white America” for electing him.
