'The Hypocrisy of Michael Moore': Tucker, Gutfeld on Filmmaker's Anti-Trump Rhetoric
Tucker Carlson and Greg Gutfeld called out the hypocrisy of Michael Moore ahead of the release of the liberal filmmaker's new movie, "Fahrenheit 11/9."
Carlson noted that Moore has portrayed himself as a champion of the people and an opponent of corporate greed, yet Moore's film festival has been sued for allegedly failing to pay vendors. Moore's ex-wife has also accused him of stiffing her on the profits from films she helped produce, including "Bowling for Columbine" and "Fahrenheit 9/11."
"He's a man of the people unless those people are working for him," Gutfeld quipped. "It's the truth of the activist, Tucker. They think globally, but they're jerks locally. The act of caring actually excuses their own obnoxious, self-involved, arrogant behavior."
Carlson said if someone really cares about making the world a better place, then they should start with the people around them.
"They're unimportant, Tucker," Gutfeld said. "Because [activists] have a greater mission in life, which is to save the world."
Moore made headlines earlier this week for saying it is "absolutely possible" that President Trump will be the last president of the United States.
Moore made the comment on Thursday during an MSNBC special on "Fahrenheit 11/9," which looks at the 2016 election and what's at stake in November's midterms.
At one point in the film's trailer, Moore refers to Trump as "the last president of the United States."
Host Chris Hayes asked Moore if he really believes that.
He said Trump -- like other billionaires and business leaders -- has no respect for the rule of law and dislikes democracy to an "incredible" degree.
"Putting somebody like that in charge of a democracy is a very dangerous thing, and especially, it’s more dangerous with him because he has a complete lack of ideology," Moore said.
"His only ideology is Donald J. Trump. That's what he believes in. Me, myself and I. That's a dangerous person to have in charge of a country."
