Between evidence of campaign-approved “voter suppression” and his surprising wife Melania with upcoming speaking engagements, Donald Trump’s isn’t doing so hot right now. Maybe that’s why the embattled Republican nominee decided to spend his Thursday tweeting about his imagined best pal Michael Moore — the same Michael Moore who recently debuted a surprise film, Michael Moore in TrumpLand, decrying the real estate mogul and those who may vote for him.
The first tweet arrived at 10:32 a.m. ET, with a link to a YouTube video containing audio ripped from Moore’s new film. (The account hosting the video appears to be pro-Trump, but unaffiliated with the official campaign.) Trump said he agreed with Moore’s sentiments in the clip, and urged his supporters to vote on November 8th.
The second dropped nearly six hours later, complete with an embedded video clip ripped from Michael Moore in TrumpLand of the same clip from before. Trump didn’t @ Moore’s Twitter account this time, though much of the tweet’s copy remained the same.
