According to documentary filmmaker, Michael Moore, supporters of President Donald Trump are all racists. “If you vote for a racist, what are you then? Because it sure sounds like racism to me,” he told CNN’s Don Lemon in a late-night interview on Tuesday. “He’s absolutely a racist,” Moore said of Trump, then went on to say, “If you still support the racist, you are the racist.”
Moore was responding to the president’s press conference held earlier the same day, during which Trump said that “both sides” played a part in the Charlottesville violence between white supremacists and counter-protesters. Moore accused Trump of saying in the press conference, "that the white nationalists were the victims, that he equated George Washington and Thomas Jefferson with Robert E. Lee, and said that the people there trying to stop the racism, the anti-racism protesters, that they were the violent ones.”
Moore went on to draw what Lemon called a “powerful and uncomfortable anecdote,” saying, “If you hold down the woman while the rapist is raping her, but you didn’t rape her, are you a rapist?” Moore asked.
"Wow!" said Pat Gray in response to Moore's shocking comparison.
"That's a big jump there," said Stu Burguiere. "That is really, uh, bizarre."
