Leftist documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, reportedly worth $30 million, accused Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) of bringing a “tragedy” upon Michigan residents after “reopening the state of Michigan too soon.” Moore made his comments during an “emergency” edition of his podcast, Rumble, published Monday.
“I hate to say this, because I voted for her for governor, but she has been scared by people who seek to do violence to her, who bullied her. The business community — the Chamber of Commerce — who have insisted that she reopen everything and this has brought a tragedy upon this upon the state, and so I need everybody’s help in pressuring … Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, to close things down,” Moore said.
“Do not listen to the business community. Yes, they are losing money. There are programs to help them with getting some of this money back, and [for] what they can’t get back, there should be other programs that the Biden administration establishes so that these businesses don’t go bankrupt,” he continued.
“I just need you to help me put pressure on the governor of Michigan,” Michael Moore added. “She’s a pro-business governor. She comes from a business family. Her dad was a business executive.”
