Michael Moore was shut down by an audience member when he tried to discredit Donald Trump Tuesday night.
The 62-year-old director was fielding questions from people on both sides of the political aisle during a town hall on CNN when man said he appreciated that Trump wanted to cut deals with companies and protect American jobs.
“No other politician in my lifetime has ever brought this issue to the forefront, and the fact of the matter is we do get screwed on trade,” the man told Moore.
“And when [Trump] doesn’t follow through, when he doesn’t get rid of NAFTA, when you’re still screwed in Michigan five months from now, two years from now — where are you gonna be then on this issue?” Moore replied. “There’s nothing in his behavior. The man is, first of all, a malignant narcissist, and he’s only about himself, folks. And you’re about to see that happen.”
“He has an ideology that he believes in, and it’s called Donald J. Trump,” he continued. “That’s what he’s going to make sure that he’s gonna take care of. I don’t think he’s going to do anything for you, the working person.”
But the audience member wasn’t going to let Moore have the last word.
“You could say the same about Hillary Clinton,” the man replied.
