Pinch yourself. What you're about to watch will make you think you're dreaming. It doesn't take a historian to know that filmmaker Michael Moore is a very brash, outspoken, and leftist liberal progressive, but what you're about to hear come out of his mouth during a speech he gave is the most incredible argument in support of Donald Trump for president ever.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This version of the video has explicit language edited out. Watch the original version of the video here.)
The crowd appeared stunned by Moore's words. But as Snopes was quick to point out, the video doesn't show what Moore said next. He switched back to his anti-Trump tone and said that Trump supporters would come to regret their decision because Trump would break his promises. He said he understood Trump supporter's anger but feared that Trump would be the "last president of the United States."
Despite those concluding thoughts, what Moore said in support of Trump voters is ringing across the land of conservatism as a better-worded argument for Trump than anyone else has ever made.
MOORE: "Donald Trump came to the Detroit Economic Club and stood there in front of Ford Motor executives and said, "If you close these factories as you're planning to do in Detroit and build them in Mexico, I'm going to put a 35% tariff on those cars when you send them back and nobody's going to buy them.' It was an amazing thing to see. No politician, Republican or Democrat, had ever said anything like that to these executives, and it was music to the ears of people in Michigan and Ohio and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — the 'Brexit' states.
"You live here in Ohio; you know what I'm talking about. Whether Trump means it or not, is kind of irrelevant because he's saying the things to people who are hurting, and that's why every beaten-down, nameless, forgotten working stiff who used to be part of what was called the middle class loves Trump. He is the human Molotov Cocktail that they've been waiting for; the human hand grande that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them. And on November 8, although they lost their jobs, although they've been foreclose on by the bank, next came the divorce and now the wife and kids are gone, the car's been repoed, they haven't had a real vacation in years, they're stuck with the [expletive] Obamacare bronze plan where you can't even get a [expletive] percocet, they've essentially lost everything they had except one thing — the one thing that doesn't cost them a cent and is guaranteed to them by the American constitution: the right to vote.
"They might be penniless, they might be homeless, they might be [expletive] over and [expletive] up it doesn't matter, because it's equalized on that day — a millionaire has the same number of votes as the person without a job: one. And there's more of the former middle class than there are in the millionaire class. So on November 8 the dispossessed will walk into the voting booth, be handed a ballot, close the curtain, and take that lever or felt pen or touchscreen and put a big [expletive] X in the box by the name of the man who has threatened to upend and overturn the very system that has ruined their lives: Donald J Trump.
"They see that the elite who ruined their lives hate Trump. Corporate America hates Trump. Wall Street hates Trump. The career politicians hate Trump. The media hates Trump, after they loved him and created him, and now hate. Thank you, media: The enemy of my enemy is who I'm voting for on November 8.
"Yes, on November 8, you Joe Blow, Steve Blow, Bob Blow, Billy Blow, all the Blows get to go and blow up the whole [expletive] system because it's your right. Trump's election is going to be the biggest [expletive] ever recorded in human history and it will feel good."
