Well, Donald Trump has really done it. He’s angered political lightning rod Michael Moore to the point of utter embarrassment (which is, undoubtedly, how many people feel about Trump). At first glance, this news is not surprising. Trump’s views run so far to the right that they’ve fallen off the spectrum. Likewise, Moore embraces his independent stance, but he’s pretty darn liberal. These two seem like natural enemies, but not so fast.
Back in September, Moore amused a lot of people when he spoke at length with Entertainment Weekly about Trump. The filmmaker seemed oddly sympathetic and said Trump’s harsh immigration stance was somewhat softened by his Slovenian-born wife, Melania. Moore also conceded Trump’s political prowess and added, “I think people love batsh*t crazy.” This wasn’t exactly a diss and was almost a begrudging compliment.
