Is Michael Moore voting for Donald Trump? Alt-right hero Milo Yiannopoulos posted an audio on Facebook in which liberal filmmaker Michael Moore explains why a lot of people are voting for Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Milo Yiannopoulos captioned the Facebook video with the following.
“Michael Moore Makes Case For Voting Trump. ‘Voting for Trump will be the biggest F you in human history and it will feel good.'”
Michael Moore has been an outspoken Donald Trump critic and will not be voting for Donald Trump. According to Snopes, the audio comes from Moore’s new documentary, TrumpLand, and the snippet was the filmmaker describing why people in the Midwestern states are voting for Donald Trump.
He dismissed the racist stereotype of Trump supporters in Michigan in the beginning of the audio.
“I know a lot of people in Michigan that are planning to vote for Trump and they don’t necessarily agree with him. They’re not racist or redneck, they’re actually pretty decent people and so after talking to a number of them I wanted to write this.”
The rest of the audio puts more context into what Michael Moore is saying in the snippet Yiannopoulos posted. Michael Moore went on to compare Trump supporters to the Brexit campaign supporters in the United Kingdom, many of whom regretted the decision to vote out, according to several polls.
“[Voting for Trump will feel good] for a day. Maybe a week. Possibly a month. And then. Like the Brits, who wanted to send a message, so they voted to leave Europe only to find out that if you vote to leave Europe you, actually have to leave Europe. And now they regret it. All the Ohioans, Pennsylvanians, Michiganders and Wisconsinites of Middle England, right, they all voted to leave and now they regret it. And over 4 million of them signed a petition to have a do-over, they want another election, but It’s not going to happen. Because you used the ballot as an anger management tool. And now you’re fucked. And the rest of Europe. They’re like, Bye Felicia.”

The documentary Michael Moore in TrumpLand makes a case for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Michael Moore recently spoke about being a Hillary Clinton supporter for over 20 years and stated that he is not trying to convince Trump’s core fan base to vote for Hillary Clinton. Rather, he wants to reach out to Democrats that are thinking about voting for Donald Trump.
While Hillary Clinton is ahead overall in the closely contested Presidential Election, recent reports suggest that Donald Trump is polling ahead of Clinton in Florida. Both candidates score low in trustworthiness and are not well liked by the American public.
Michael Moore has responded to the rumor that he is endorsing Trump on Twitter. Donald Trump Jr. also shared the audio, and Milo’s comment section seems to confirm that many supporters of Republican nominee Donald Trump believe the liberal filmmaker endorsed the candidate.
Moore wrote the following on Twitter.
“Hey everyone – Trump, Jr. & right wing thinks my movie called ‘TrumpLand’ is pro-Trump! Haha. Pls don’t tell them otherwise!”
Despite Hillary Clinton spending more money on ads, Trump is still close in many key swing states, according to many polls.
Michael Moore doesn’t seem to mind that several Trump supporters think he endorsed the Republican candidate because it is driving them to watch Trumpland, according to this tweet.
“They’re only helping us by sending thousands of Trump voters to iTunes to watch my movie. Then the truth’ll hit ’em.”
Milo’s Facebook video has over 6 million views and counting.
