Donald Trump’s Only Path To Re-Election Is To “Cheat,” Michael Moore Tells ‘Real Time With Bill Maher’

It was the politics of pandemic that took over Real Time with Bill Maher tonight with Michael Moore as the marquee guest.

“The only way they are going to pull it off is if he’s able to cancel the election or postpone it,” the Fahrenheit 9/11 director said of Donald Trump’s chances at the ballot box in November against Joe Biden after this COVID-19 spring that has seen almost 100,000 deaths so far from the respiratory ailment. “I’m certain that’s what’s going on in his head right now,” Moore worried as he has before, pledging that people will need to take to the streets on January 20, 2021 to “get this motherfucker out.”

“The only way Republicans can win is if they cheat,” Moore declared to Maher as he stated that most Americans are actually in sync fundamentally with progressive policies.

Not that the Oscar winner was advocating to Trump rivals that things should to go that far or that they take the ultimate bait and switch as an easy blunted move – as you can see in this excerpt below:

“None of us should take him for granted,” Moore told the HBO host of Trump’s reign of error continuing, despite the Art of the Deal co-author’s disastrous fumble of the coronavirus crisis. “We need to behave as is if he will win a second term,” Moore added with a jab at Democrats who whine at such language.

And remember, love him or hate him, Moore has good pedigree on this. As Maher pointed out on Real Time today, the filmmaker was one of the few public figures who took Trump seriously in 2016.

“He knows exactly what he’s doing, he was in Michigan this week,” Flint-born Moore went on to say in the bi-coastal interview that was actually filmed yesterday. “It’s the third time he’s been in Michigan in three weeks,” he noted of the corona-campaigning in the vital Wolverine State, “he believes he is going to pull this off,” Moore noted, even as most polls have ex-VP and the Democrats’ presumptive nominee  Biden leading.

“Hillary won by three million votes in the popular vote, as we call it, I think Biden, he’ll win by five million,” said Rumble podcast host Moore in comparison between 2016 and 2020 from his NYC apartment on top of a shuttered movie theater. “But, I think that Trump could still win the Electoral College. So, all of us have to be really in fighting mode – cause he is.”

“If you listen to him and you take him at his word, understand that he is a lot of time telling the truth,” Moore very seriously stated about the 45th POTUS after Maher gave Trump a backhanded compliment of “speaking his inner monologue” in his political calculations. “Not the greater truth, but his truth …he’d pass a lie-detector if you wire him up.”

“He is just trying to scare liberals because liberals get scared easy,” he went on to say of heavily armed pro-reopening America mobs that have stormed state legislatures and protested outside lockdown governors and mayors’ home under nudging from Trump. “Don’t be scared, we are the majority!”

Before the Bowling for Columbine filmmaker joined the latest edition of the stay-at-home Real Time, a suited and booted Maher started the show with his traditionally timely and sometimes heavy-handed monologue from his spacious West L.A. backyard.

Joking about GrubHub delivery workers and spending Memorial Day weekend “at home” to big laughs from old crowd footage, Maher wasted little time launching into his primary foil – Donald Trump.

After dispensing with the former Celebrity Apprentice host’s current intake of hydroxychloroquine to ward off the coronavirus and with a quick scene of John Wilkes Booth preparing to shoot Abraham Lincoln, the Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death actor also mocked the largely stumbling efforts of most states to reopen. “No plan, no consistencies,” Maher said standing in his outside bar. “It’s the opposite of Afghanistan, we don’t have an entrance strategy

Along with Moore, Real Time had remote and split screen sit downs with New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman and LA Lakers’ nutritional consultant Dr. Cate Shanahan as guests tonight. The latter being another one of those insightful conversations on health and “realer foods” that Maher has come to specialize in over recent years.

Fresh off the much-watched YouTube success of the environmental aimed Planet of the Humans documentary that he executive produced, Real Time wasn’t Moore’s only media hit of the day on the topic of the election. Earlier on Friday, the Fahrenheit 11/9 helmer was on MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber proclaiming that Trump has “has to be fought tooth and nail” on probable efforts by the incumbent to hobble voting one way or another in November.

Worth Watching: All-Star ‘Drag Race’ and ‘Queer Eye,’ ‘Dear’ Letters to Role Models, ‘NewsHour’ Tackles Race

mm

Published

on

A selective critical checklist of notable Friday TV:

Queer Eye (streaming on Netflix): The new crew may have fallen short on Celebrity Family Feud last weekend while going up against the O.G. Queer Eye for the Straight Guy cast, but that is most surely not the case with their triumphant Netflix reboot. Queer Eye returns for an emotional and jubilant fifth season, as the Fab Five — Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming), Karamo Brown (Culture) and Tan France (Fashion) — head to Philadelphia for new transformative makeovers. What better setting for the upbeat ambassadors of stylish empowerment than the City of Brotherly Love?

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars (8/7c, VH1): They’ve already sashayed their way to fame on the drag runway, and 10 stars of past seasons of the Emmy-winning competition are back to lip sync once again for their lives — and a $100,000 grand prize. Ricky Martin is the guest judge for the opening episode, which welcomes back fabulous queens including Alexis Mateo, Blair St. Clair, Jujubee, Miz Cracker, Ongina, Derrick Berry, India Ferrah, Mariah Paris Balenciaga, Shea Couleé and Mayhem Miller. Their names are half the fun!

Dear … (streaming on Apple TV+): Though this weekend’s scheduled premiere on Hulu of We Are Freestyle Love Supreme, an uplifting documentary about the hip-hop improv group co-founded by Lin-Manuel Miranda, was postponed out of solidarity with the current protest movement, the Hamilton superstar is still represented as one of 10 pop-culture icons in this inspirational series from documentarian R.J. Cutler. Inspired by the “Dear Apple … ” spots, each episode gives a cultural role model the platform to present his or her biography with the help of admiring letters from those whose lives were touched by their work, actions and words. Others featured in the series include Oprah Winfrey, Gloria Steinem, Jane Goodall, Spike Lee, Stevie Wonder, Misty Copeland, Yara Shahidi, Aly Raisman and everyone’s favorite, Big Bird.

Race Matters: America in Crisis, a PBS NewsHour Special (9/8c, PBS, check local listings at pbs.org): The best, and certainly most thoughtful, daily news program anywhere on TV takes a step back for a hard look at racial disparity in America and other issues raised by the recent protests in a special prime-time hour. Managing editor Judy Woodruff anchors, with reports from White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, senior national correspondent Amna Nawaz and special correspondent (and PBS legend) Charlayne Hunter-Gault. The special will feature grass-roots voices as well as thought leaders and newsmakers in round-table conversations.

Trackers (10/9c, Cinemax): Though the premium channel is reportedly moving out of the business of airing original series, there’s still this six-episode action thriller set and filmed in South Africa, perfect for Strike Back fans going into withdrawal. James Gracie stars as the obligatory ex-Special Forces operative who’s part of an international team on the trail of a conspiracy involving terrorists, organized crime, diamond smuggling and endangered black rhinos. That’s a fairly full plate.

Inside Friday TV: YouTuber David Dobrik hosts Nickelodeon’s The Stars of SpongeBob Fan Favorites Special (7/6c), in which the voice actors of the classic cartoon gather for a table read of favorite scenes and a lightning round of top one-liners… It’s graduation day in the fourth and final season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, with one more round of dangerous secrets for TV’s most tiresome teens to fret over… Also new to Netflix: The Last Days of American Crime, a futuristic caper starring Edgar Ramírez and Michael C. Pitt as criminals planning one last major heist before the government puts out a signal that will make it impossible for people to knowingly break the law… Amazon Prime Video’s eight-part docudramedy El Presidente relives the 2015 “FIFA Gate” corruption scandal that rocked the international soccer world… For laughs, Amazon Prime Video streams Gina Brillon: The Floor Is Lava, a stand-up special for the Bronx-born Latina comic, riffing on newly married life with a Midwestern husband; and Comedy Central’s Esther Povitsky: Hot for My Name (10/9c) showcases the comic actress (Alone Together, Dollface) in a quirky autobiographical set.

Lady Bird (2017)

It is official, the glorious Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be returning for their eighth season. The news was announced in basically the nicest way, with the official Insta account sharing the moment with the cast was told they would be coming back next year.

The Release Date of Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8

As with so much else right now, this will be a difficult question to answer to the fans out there. So much depends on when the productions can start up again, with all the networks currently on a shutdown. We will not be able to guess when the series will air until the restrictions have been lifted.

And the lockdown will have an effect not just on the shooting schedule for Brooklyn Nine-Nine airing, it will have an impact on the plot- the show’s set in one of the worst-hit areas in the world, New York.

So, do not expect that your favourite comedy show to suddenly turn into a harrowing documentary. And there is plenty of comic potential to be minted from the other major plot element that will be explored in the eighth season.

The Plot: you can expect Jake and Amy’s baby to play a big role in season eight’s shenanigans. “We’re very conscious, similarly to when we coupled them up, that this is a workplace show,” Goor said.

“While we like doing comedy about them as a romantic item, or as a married couple, or [now] as parents, we primarily do comedy about them working together.”

“Hopefully we’ll be able to strike a similar balance, and I think we’ll be conscious of the fact that they have a kid.”

He added: “I think it’s an interesting element to have both Jake and Amy be working people who have to figure out how to balance the career they love with being good parents, which is what they want to be.”

Daaaaaw, we can’t wait.
