Michael Moore's Message to Butthurt Dems Is BS: Trump Is Projected to Win the Popular Vote. Sorry?

Michael Moore says Clinton won the popular vote, so don't worry, you don't live in an "effed-up country." Ha ha. Except Trump is projected to win the popular vote. And Moore is a two-faced lard bucket.

We have to tip our MAGA hat to Michael Moore for being one of the few liberals to recognize why Trump actually has appeal, you know, aside from being a racist, sexist fascist — and would likely win on November 8. But Moore's viral "morning after to-do list" for Hillbots in mourning has reminded us why he is still a sad, confused man with cheeseburgers for brains.

It's a five point list about how to save America, or something. We want to focus on the fifth point, which is objectively bullshit:

5. You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: “HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!” The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Fact. If you woke up this morning thinking you live in an effed-up country, you don’t. The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump. The only reason he’s president is because of an arcane, insane 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we’ll continue to have presidents we didn’t elect and didn’t want. You live in a country where a majority of its citizens have said they believe there’s climate change, they believe women should be paid the same as men, they want a debt-free college education, they don’t want us invading countries, they want a raise in the minimum wage and they want a single-payer true universal health care system. None of that has changed. We live in a country where the majority agree with the “liberal” position. We just lack the liberal leadership to make that happen.

Where to begin?

Okay, first of all, even according to CNN, Donald Trump is likely to win the popular vote (click on the "popular vote" tab):

Yes, Trump's down by about 230k votes right now, but guess what? Arizona still has about 400k votes to count. And there are plenty of absentee ballots left too. (Here you need to be thinking: Military. Probably 80% of whom voted Trump.)

Even if Clinton does win the popular vote — big whoop. You think Moore would care at all if Clinton won the Electoral College, but lost the popular vote by 230k votes? Hell. No.

For months, the media and Hillary supporters have been gloating about Clinton's "Midwestern blue-state firewall" that would stop Trump. Were they talking about the popular vote? No. They were greedily counting up Electoral votes that Clinton lost on November 8.

And really, at the end of the day, there's no way you can say a majority of Americans prefer Clinton. More than 45% of eligible Americans didn't even vote. Of those who did vote, Clinton received well under 50%. (This is also true of Trump, of course.)

So please, stop with the bullshit, Mike.

We also want to add that we find it absolutely hilarious that Moore voted for Clinton while pretending to be anti-war. "So it goes."

We actually remember a time when we sort of respected Michael Moore. Have you ever seen Canadian Bacon? It's actually a brilliant satire on the "peace dividend" that Bill Clinton flushed down the toilet forever. Boy, how things change. Take the wheel, Paul:
