Michael Moore: Hillary Has Been ‘Abused’ In Ways a Man Wouldn’t, ‘Brings a Lot To the Table’ By Being a Woman In Feminist First Wave

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” filmmaker Michael Moore argued that Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “brings a lot to the table by having been a woman who went through the first wave of modern feminist era,” and has been “attacked, and harassed, and abused in ways that I believe, honestly, if she were a man, she wouldn’t have had to go through so much of this.”

Moore was asked, “There’s been this debate about is this economic anxiety that the left or liberals could find a way to draw people away from the allure of Trump, or is it so bound up in essentially white identity politics, racist backlash, that there’s no use. What do you think about that?”

He answered, “I think it’s male identity. And I think that that’s really what a lot of this — obviously the racism of Trump, and all that, it’s quite evident. … I wanted to make a film that focused on the fact that we know we have a woman running for president, and she may be our first — if she’s elected, she will be our first woman president, and she brings a lot to the table by having been a woman who went through the first wave of modern feminist era, and the way she was treated, the way women of her generation were treated, they haven’t forgotten that. She hasn’t forgotten that. And I think that she’s going to bring all of that into the White House, and I hope, I think, do a lot of good with that.”

Moore added that he was “surprised” more people don’t talk about the fact, and aren’t excited about Clinton being the first woman president, which is a “wonderful thing. Not just the fact that she’s a woman, but look at all that she’s done.”

He further argued, “The sort of the knock on her has been unfair. She’s been attacked, and harassed, and abused in ways that I believe, honestly, if she were a man, she wouldn’t have had to go through so much of this.”
