Monday on ABC’s “The View,” progressive liberal flimmaker Michael Moore made the case that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at the presidential debates did not “get out the club” on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump because of her Christian faith.
“I think that’s because honestly, when she says that she’s a Christian, I think she means it and I think she lives it.”
Partial transcript as follows:
MOORE: I can give you all the political reasons that I disagree with her on. But to think of her in the Oval Office, representing this country, come on. First of all, I say this to Bernie people: We’re not being asked to vote for Margaret Thatcher or Clarence Thomas or, you know. She adopted two thirds of Bernie’s positions I mean, she really went the extra mile to try and bring everyone into the tent, and I think her behavior during the debates, I was in a place where actually you were there watching it and we were hoping she would get out the club and just — you know.
BEHAR: But she didn’t.
MOORE: No, she didn’t. And I think that’s because honestly, when she says that she’s a Christian, I think she means it and I think she lives it.
BEHAR: She never works the Christian angle, I noticed. She doesn’t do the religion thing.
MOORE: Because the people who talk about it, ‘I’m a Christian,’ oftentimes aren’t. Because the idea of being a Christian is to just behave that way.
