Documentary filmmaker and noted liberal Michael Moore attacked President Donald Trump on Twitter Sunday as a "loser" who holds "fake power."
"Hey loser-you LOST. You lost on Nov 8 & you lost on Friday. You hold fake power that was not given to u by the majority of Americans. Loser," Moore wrote.

Moore's tweet came in response to a tweet Trump tweeted from his personal Twitter account on Saturday when he urged Senate Republicans to continue fighting to repeal and replace Obamacare, a core promise of the GOP for years, in addition to Trump's presidential campaign.
Trump even suggested only voting on an Obamacare replacement before voting on any other legislation.
"Unless the Republican Senators are total quitters, Repeal & Replace is not dead! Demand another vote before voting on any other bill!" Trump said.
Moore's statement that Trump "lost" on Friday is a reference to another failure by Senate Republicans to pass a full or partial repeal of Obamacare.
After failing to reach agreement on a full repeal last week, GOP leaders in the Senate unveiled a "skinny repeal" late Thursday, which sought to ease stiff Obamacare regulations and repeal the law's individual and employer mandates as well as the medical device tax.
However, the comprise also failed after three Republican senators, including Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), voted against it.
Still, Twitter users were quick to remind Moore who the real losers have been as of late: the Democratic Party, which has seen electoral losses nationwide since 2010.

Exactly how did he lose on Nov 8th? Seems to me the US Constitution and the Electoral College say other wise. Go learn your civics you tool!— Stephen Barrell (@BarelySmall) July 30, 2017
Good God. He won on Nov 8th by the rules. Just stop already.— Todd Shaffer (@ToddShaffer) July 30, 2017
He won the only way that mattered— ashley dotson (@adotson12) July 30, 2017
Indeed, despite Moore's claims, Trump didn't lose last year's election. While he did, in fact, lose the popular vote, according to the U.S. Constitution, the president isn't elected via a simple majority. Rather, the Electoral College elects the president — and last year they elected Trump.
