We’ve heard a million theories as to why Donald Trump finally decided to take a real stab at the presidency in 2015, but this might be the strangest one to date. No doubt pulling information directly out of his oversized posterior, socialist filmmaker Michael Moore told the Hollywood Reporter this week that we can thank No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani for pushing the billionaire into the political arena.
“He’d been talking about running for president since 1988, but he didn’t really want to be president,” Moore said. “There’s no penthouse in the White House. And he doesn’t want to live in a black city.”
“He was trying to pit NBC against another network, but it just went off the rails,” he continued.
Moore’s story is that Trump found out that Stefani was earning more for appearing on NBC’s “The Voice” than he was for hosting the longtime hit, “The Apprentice.” He decided to hold the infamous Trump Tower press conference and announce his bid for the Republican nomination in an effort to boost his value to NBC.
Of course, if that was the plan, it immediately went off the rails. His opening remarks about Mexico and illegal immigration started a firestorm that still hasn’t died down, and NBC subsequently cut ties with Trump.
Moore told THR that he believed that Trump adored the attention he got from that first crowd so much that he decided to turn a publicity stunt into an actual campaign.
Which is pretty funny, considering that the left has been telling us for three years that Trump paid every member of that crowd to be there.
Moore, apparently giving us a preview of just how stupid his new movie, “Fahrenheit 11/9” is going to be, said that to stop a celebrity, you needed a celebrity.
“Say what you want about Trump, but tens of millions watched his show,” Moore said. “We need Tom Hanks, Oprah, Michelle Obama. Who would not vote for Michelle Obama?”
We’d probably just as soon vote for Gwen Stefani, to be honest.
