Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore asked for the “angry white men” of America to “just take a break” in an interview on Thursday.
During an appearance on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," Moore said that he, being an “angry white guy over 50 with a high school education,” is part of President TrumpDonald TrumpBiden heading to Kansas City to promote infrastructure package Trump calls Milley a 'f---ing idiot' over Afghanistan withdrawal First rally for far-right French candidate Zemmour prompts protests, violence MORE's targeted demographic.
But he said he and his “fellow angry white American guys” have been “running the show for 10,000 years," and it's time to give someone else a chance.
“It’s like, we’ve had a long run as men running everything and the Yankees could never win as many pennants as we’ve won in these 10,000 years as men,” Moore said.
“So, why don’t we just take a break? Let the majority gender run the show. What are you scared of?” he continued. “Women actually like us, most of us.”
The “Fahrenheit 11/9” director also said that he hopes “the majority” of voters haven’t fallen for the fear he believes Trump is trying to “whip up” to stimulate his base ahead of midterm elections on Tuesday.
“Trump is in there trying to whip up, as you were showing earlier,” Moore said to Meyers, all “that fear and all that ‘Here come the hordes,’ and doing this and that.”
“Hopefully, people have not fallen for it, not the majority. The majority are with us,” Moore added. “The majority believe in the liberal agenda.”
Moore has been a fierce critic of Trump throughout his presidency, and in June urged Trump’s opponents “rise up” and put their “bodies on the line” to stop his policies.
His remarks on Thursday come several days after CNN host Don Lemon captured headlines for saying that the "biggest terror threat in this country are white men" in response to the deadly synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh.
