Michael Moore just embarrassed Bernie Sanders so badly it could end his 2020 campaign

52

Michael Moore is one of Hollywood’s most radical Leftists.

Naturally, he decided to publicly endorse socialist Senator Bernie Sanders.

But his endorsement did not go as planned and it could mean the end of Sanders’ campaign.

While speaking at Bernie Sanders’ “Bernie is Back” rally after his health issues, Moore unexpectedly embarrassed Sanders.

Recently, Bernie Sanders was hospitalized after having a heart attack.

This has brought his age and health into the spotlight.

During Michael Moore’s speech at the rally, Moore tried to address those concerns but ended up embarrassing the Senator in the worst way possible.

Instead of discussing Bernie’s health, he suggested they speak about the health of the planet that’s actually dying.

He went on to stress why “It’s actually a gift that we have a 78-year-old running for President”.

The entire speech was a massive embarrassment to Bernie Sanders.

Breitbart reports:

Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore dismissed mounting concerns surrounding Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) health and age during a “Bernie’s Back Rally” in New York City on Saturday, declaring that he is “glad” that Sanders is 78-years-old and arguing that he would rather “talk about the health of this planet that’s dying” than Sanders’ heart attack.

The Sicko director dismissed concerns over Sanders’ age — he would be the oldest president to take office if elected — and argued that he is “glad” that Sanders is 78-years-old.

“I’m glad he’s 78, and we will benefit for his wisdom and his experience and his knowledge and his love for the American people,” Moore said. “It’s actually a gift that we have a 78-year-old American running for President of the United States. You know why that’s a gift?”

“What has a 78-year-old seen? Bernie has seen many of the things we’ve never seen,” the filmmaker said, naming pay raises, pensions, and the defeat of fascism and white supremacy.

Bernie Sanders instantly regretted having Michael Moore speak at his rally.

The last thing he wants voters in the Democratic primary thinking about is his old age and deteriorating health.

The reality is, Bernie Sanders is not in a healthy condition.

And a number of Sanders’ younger opponents are beginning to chip away at his lead in the polls.

What do you think?

Should Bernie Sanders’ age be a factor during his campaign for President?

  2. Trump’s age isn’t an issue. Neither should Bernie Sanders’ age nor Joe Biden’s age be an issue!

    “Biden’s old age, constant gaffes, and inability to remember basic facts or get through a speech without stumbling over his words concerns many Democrats.

    “This debate – where Biden was called out for age by a fellow Democrat – shows the attacks on Biden’s growing senility are starting to take hold.”

    If elected president, Joe Biden would be the oldest president ever elected. In 1980, that’s what they were saying about Ronald Reagan. In 2016, Donald Trump became the oldest person ever elected president.

    A doddering figurehead? That’s the way we Democrats saw Reagan!

    “I just came into political consciousness when Reagan was Pres…Many hated and satirized him …That he was old and obviously not all there somehow worked to his advantage.

    “At end of his years Reagan seemed like an irrelevant figure always on vacation. He should have credit for recognizing the new Soviet generation of leadership, but his economic legacy pervades to this day and ultimately stifled his successor, Bush1″

    –SIlverSpringlib on Salon.com

    I was in high school during the Carter Administration, and in college during the Reagan years. Your observations are fairly accurate, especially when you write:

    “That he was old and obviously not all there somehow worked to his advantage.”

    Part of Reagan’s “charm” with the public was coming across as a kind, grandfatherly figure. Some of us saw through it, though. A female friend in college commented, “Oh, I think he’s awful!”

    You write: “At end of his years Reagan seemed like an irrelevant figure always on vacation.”

    That describes his second term as a lame-duck President, and that was especially true in the aftermath of the Iran-Contra scandal. But it is an eerily accurate depiction of his entire time in office.

    In 1984, my friend Greg commented that it seems like Reagan doesn’t do anything: we see him talk to reporters, make a few jokes, and then go inside the White House.

    Greg then began to paint a picture of Reagan going inside the White House, cozying up with a cup of chamomile tea, sitting on a rocking chair, pulling a shawl over himself…

    I broke up laughing: “It sounds like you’re describing a Norman Rockwell picture!” I exclaimed.

    “Well, look at who we’re talking about…” Greg responded.

    “He should have credit for recognizing the new Soviet generation of leadership, but his economic legacy pervades to this day and ultimately stifled his successor, Bush1″

    A politically liberal friend of my father’s commented once that Reagan forced the Soviet Union into an arms race they knew they couldn’t win, and thus brought them to the bargaining table.

    I’ll give Reagan the credit for having met with the new Soviet generation of leadership.

    During the 1980s, Dennis McKinsey, an agnostic schoolteacher in Ohio, was publishing Biblical Errancy: a newsletter pointing out biblical errors and contradictions, while giving equal time for Bible believers and/or apologists to respond.

    Dennis McKinsey commented in 1987 (to a Christian who had written in) that it’s possible to discuss our deeply held and cherished beliefs with our ideological opponents without resorting to personal attacks:

    “Just ask Reagan and Gorbachev!” he exclaimed.

    “…his economic legacy pervades to this day and ultimately stifled his successor, Bush1″

    Since Reagan, Republicans have embraced tax cuts as the solution to all social ills.

    When Republican Dan Lundgren ran for governor of California against Gray Davis in 1998, his television ads had him declaring, “I’m going to cut your taxes.”

    Lundgren lost, and one political observer said he ran what would have been a good campaign a decade earlier: in *1988* !

    Thom Hartmann eloquently responds to both the religious right and the conservative call for tax cuts in his 2003 book, What Would Jefferson Do?, by pointing out that our tax dollars provide us with roads, schools, and an infrastructure we tend to take for granted.

    “…That he was old and obviously not all there somehow worked to his advantage.

    “At end of his years Reagan seemed like an irrelevant figure always on vacation.”

    During the first few years of the Clinton Administration, my friend Ruth (pro-life feminist and pro-life Democrat) and I were attending Feminists For Life meetings together here in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 1994, Ruth said that when she told some friends of hers who were fellow Democrats but more liberal than herself about the recent news that Reagan had Alzheimer’s, they immediately responded:

    “Oh, we’ve known that for years!”

  3. Not this Moron again. Always writes a book that nobody reads. vasu go back to where you came from. You have no right to speak about America. michael moore is a Fat Moron & bernie is an old ass communist. Just google his video of his honeymoon in Russia where he is drinking & singing with his shirt off, if you can stand it!!!

  4. What is Michael Moore even talking about?
    We’ve all seen pay raises and we don’t have to be 78 years old to have seen them.
    Pensions aren’t working out too well. Just look at Illinois.
    Mussolini was executed in 1945, so Bernie isn’t old enough to have witnessed the death of fascism.

  5. Oh, Vasoline, get a life. This hanging around under bridges and getting beat up by Billy Goats cannot be any fun.

  6. I think Bernie’s health is more of a concern, and because of his health….his age becomes a concern. Bernie’s choice for VP should be campaigning with him so we can see who is really going to be President.

  7. Who cares what “comrade” Moore has to say about ANYTHING to begin with! And secondly, I wouldn’t vote for Sanders even if he wasn’t a Democratic . He does indeed have serious health problems. But perhaps this is the Demon party evil plan. Having Sanders as their choice to be their president. And having Clinton as his running mate. He wins(GOD FORBID) he suffers a massive heart attack, can not continue to function as president and PRESTO, Clinton is president!!! What a nightmare for this country!!!
    Please don’t be complacent come 2020. We all go out and vote for Trump!! And pray they Leftists will not interfere ,as they tried before, to rig the election….

  8. With friends like Moore, you might as well just vote for Trump. Maybe Moore said those things to help his prediction of a Trump victory.

  9. Bernie Sanders is an idiot too. When did he become and expert on climate change?
    Climate change is supposed to be a global phenomenon. So how stupid do people have to be to think democrats can fix it?

  10. Great comment Mike, I wish there was some way that they could stop this Moron from commenting on every article they post. Your description of that repulsive slob Moore and the Bern are a dead center bulls eye. Screw Moore, Bernie and the camel they arrived on.

  11. Great Dem ticket that would put the Hunchback of Chappaqua ‘over the edge’……Crazy Bern and Jill Stein. It would be every look, wackjob’s wet dream team.

  12. Carla: Yes indeed !! I stated my theory because we all know Hillary has NEVER accepted her defeat and will go to ANY extreme to get her evilness back into politics. Especially becoming our president…Hope GOD will prevent this from ever happening. I love the USA! Not what the demon party wants to turn our great country into….

  13. During the 2016 Presidential campaign after seeing a photograph of Sanders I thought to myself that man looks like a corpse and not someone who is physically fit enough to run our nation.

  14. But it was not Bernie ranting about climate change it was that disgustingly fat component of a terminal viral pandemic plague Moore.

  15. A planet is dying. Wow. Talk about the height of arrogance. We puny ass humans will go extinct and the planet will live on and not even notice. Species will evolve, new species will rise, life will continue until the sun snuffs it out. We arrogant, stupid humans are merely a tiny blip and not an important one at all.

  16. By raising taxes of course. That’s the dem solution to everything. Nothing ever works of course, but they do get to spend a lot of money.

  17. NASA just issued a report that climate change has nothing to do with mans involvement. It is due to “pole shifts” I would rather listen to a George so ros funded teenager named Greta than listen to NASA !! There is a bunch of teenagers who haven’t learned how to keep their pants pulled up yet. It makes you wonder about the future. Forget the future what about now. We have a presidential candidate that eats dirt ! Beto EATS DIRT to regenerate himself…………. In my opinion I have to add. I don’t really care what man does GOD controls this earth

  18. Vasu does not write anything he simply Copy/Paste whatever DNC talking point last week he was defending Warren…Vasu has no personal opinions- I doubt he is really even a Vegan as he claims!

    Vasu is just earning his daily Soros dollars.

  19. You should admonish the globule of Crisco about his ravenous destruction of so many Quarter Pounders and herds of cattle.!

  20. Yes, we have all seen Pay Raises but not under the 8 yrs of Obama or the 8 yrs of Bush- But significantly under TRUMP!
    And while Trump has released his health records (you know the left is so insistent on releasing personal records) Bernie has not, in fact, he thought for a week he could get away with not saying he had a heart attack…and we all know Trump passed his mental test with flying colors- NOW lets give it to the other 70 somethings Biden, Sanders, Warren and see how they fair!

    Oh and just for fun lets give it to Nutty Nancy, Dumb Chuckie, Mad Maxine…and a slew more. Everyone else has an age 65 for retirement- Why not the Congress and Senat- oh because the party that railed against Regan being too old now is his age- when he left office- and is unwilling to give up their gravy train of money and power!

    So, test them all and release their medical and mental health evaluations- We the People have a right to know if the person running for office has a serious heart problem, mental decline (dementia, senility, Alzheimers) Since they all insisted Trump do it at the beginning of his term. Funny, he can run both physical and mental laps around them all- yet the Dems and MSM claim he is unfit…Trump 2020!!!

  21. And Hillary and company would make sure Sanders did not last much past the inauguration…two maybe three days for appearance’s sake – then his Epstineesque demise will be initiated.

  22. Bernie’s STUPIDITY should be the ONLY factor! . . . Any THINKING human being WOULD NOT endorse Bernie for ANYTHING but the “LOONY FARM” with the REST of the CRAZIES. Lock him up with AOC. Neither one of them are “all there”. Their elevators not only don’t “go all the way to the top”, but doesn’t work AT ALL. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

  23. Probably not the best acronym (even though I agree) since that was the name of a WW-II Japanese aircraft carrier.

  24. Making “Canadian Bacon”, a fictional satire, was the only meaningful exercise of the first amendment that Michael Moore ever made. That was before he began masquerading fantasy drama as “documentary”, thereby blatantly lying to as many audiences as he could find. Meanwhile he egregiously disparages, whether deliberately or inadvertently, the second and the tenth amendments to the Constitution of the United States. He probably does not even care about the other parts of the “Bill of Rights” if believes that it will allow the state to seize and keep every weapon that it can with or without just compensation, whether the owner/bearer committed a crime or not.

  25. James we don’t know what Vasu said. It is impossible to get through his long, bloviating screeds full of Demwit BS.

  26. Linda I’m afraid that all this is smoke and mirrors and at the last minute the Demwits will spring someone like Obozo on us.

  27. ** Michael Moore only does something if there’s an agenda attached to it. THERE IS ……. A BIG ONE. He made a comment a couple months ago about how Michelle Obama is “a strong black woman” who should be the President. Notice in the last couple years everything in Hollywood movies/shows, Olympics, C.E.O.’s, big tech companies including Google and YouTube……etc. are all about “black woman empowerment”. It’s not because the left cares about “empowerment” or “equality”….. It’s because racism is their weapon of war which they’ll use to carry out their master plan and Michelle is the perfect one to carry that out. Michael Moore purposely did that in preparation to help Michelle get into office.

  29. Which party keeps the hard working black folk in continual poverty with their free handout entitlement dependency?
    Well that would be the racist white folk party. Hahahahahahahahaha

  30. Not only is Bernie’s age is a negative factor, his health is also a factor. Besides that Bernie’s Social Agenda is probably the most dangerous for the US. His close association with the squad and his leaning towards the Muslim ideology makes me wonder how long before he turns against the US? If he hasn’t already!

  31. It’s not just Bernie. They are all radical “social -ists” with a social agenda that is dangerous.
    All promising the same thing, FREE this and FREE that, but don’t worry how we’ll pay for it.
    No more guns, no more borders, no more private health insurance, no more paying for your own education, no more immigration laws, no border security, no more fossil fuels……………..

  32. Vasu shut up!! We hate you and your stupid “books” that you post on this site! Go to he|| ! You rag head!!
