Michael Moore went onto ‘The View’ and advocate for ending the electoral college because President Trump won with the help of the electoral college. The electoral college was a brilliant way for people in less populous regions to have a voice, but Democrats lose because of it so they want it to be banned. Joy Behar was totally on board.
“Like you pointed out in your show last night, the electoral college is something the Democrats have not been able to get,” said Behar. “It’s the second time in 16 years, the first with Gore, that we win and then we lose. How does this happen? You know?” said Moore. “They steal it, that’s why,” Behar yelled. They are like a happily married couple.
“The Democrats have won the popular vote in six of the last seven presidential elections. The Republicans have only won the popular vote once since 1988. The country we live in actually agrees with the Democrats on the issues: women should be paid the same as men, there is climate change, there should be a minimum wage, basic things,” said Moore.
“That’s the good news of the country we live in. But we have this archaic thing that’s got to go, the electoral college,” said Moore. “They are never going to get it go, because it helps them,” said Behar.
Moore then admitted that President Trump “outsmarted” the Democrats. “I mean it’s hard to say this, but he did outsmart us. He was smart enough to go to Detroit… he was smart enough to figure out how to convince 53 percent of white women to vote for him after the Billy Bush,” said Moore. Check out the video below:
