1. When asked about the difference between the elections of 2016 and 2020 he says:

"The black community was pretty much ignored four years ago." No, Hillary was criticized for holding rallies in cities in swing states and not going to rural white areas, ignoring whites. For concentrating too much on "identity politics."

She was the first candidate to go to Flint and address the water crisis. She had solid support with the black community, especially women, because they knew her.

5. Also it was the candidate he supported that failed to win minority votes

but he never says that about his own choice that failed twice .

Right now it looks like he is trying to attach himself to Biden's win but he referred to South Carolina as a used condom during the primary.

8. At least he isn't scapegoating for why the election was so close

Did Police Protests Help Biden Get Elected? Black Swing State Activists Believe So

Since the election (which is still not technically over, although it’s very much decided), Congressional Democrats have squabbled over what is to blame for their less-than-stellar performance at the ballot box. Among the accusations, launched most vociferously by S.C. Rep. James Clyburn, is that “sloganeering” in the form of “Defund the police” was harmful for Democrats, particularly in congressional races.

Activists—and a bit of data—have challenged that claim.

According to a new Bloomberg CityLab report, which spoke to several activists for its report, noted that “pretty much every city in the U.S. that hosted protests” voted for President-elect Joe Biden, as did their surrounding suburbs. In fact, cities like Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Pittsburgh—all of which have relatively large Black populations and saw a lot of protest activity over the summer—were instrumental in giving Biden victories in their respective home states.

(Snip)

But the Pennsylvania-based activists Citylab spoke to said the “defund/abolish the police” language appeared to draw in more people than it turned away, especially first-time and infrequent Black voters who were pivotal to Biden’s victory. It also opened up crucial discussions about the nature of policing and what effective reform could look like—even if people misunderstood or didn’t agree with the stance.

I lost respect for Moore for putting his name on that climate film but at least he isn't like Manchin & others scapegoating the base for why the election was so close.

11. Why would anyone pay attention to Michael Moore?

Because we love him? Because he has been right in his analysis of the the problems in this country? Because he makes films which tell the truth? He told Hillary's campaign that she was in trouble in three key states. She ignored him. She lost. He was right.

13. Moore has been wrong on almost everything including his support of Nader in 2000

I am happy that this person has flopped badly at the box office in his last couple of films. I will not watch this idiot and I have no idea why anyone would think that this person has any credibiltty
