Michael Moore Tells Colbert That a President Named ‘Hussein’ and Legal Weed Have Driven Conservatives Insane
Moore has been promoting his new documentary, Where To Invade Next, in which he analyzes American foreign policy and the overall dysfunctional nature of the United States.
Earlier in the day, Moore had protested Donald Trump, holding up a sign that read, “We are all Muslims” outside of Trump Tower.
“They are so unnerved and unhinged by the fact that we’ve had two terms of a president whose middle name is Hussein, gay people can get married now, and states are decriminalizing marijuana,” Moore ticked off. “I mean this is the direction the country is going.”
“Can I defend the appeal?” Colbert countered. “I’d like to defend the appeal, although I might not agree with what Donald Trump says, I can defend the appeal of the way he says it because so often we look at different problems we have in our country and people say, ‘We’ll, what is there to do?’ People sort of throw up their hands. At least he says, ‘Here is something to do!’ It may be a dumb idea, it may be unconstitutional, it may be a pure idea that is based on purely business practices, not based on ideas of liberty. Because it’s an idea and they want an answer.”
“Are there answers in this film that we haven’t thought of?” Colbert asked Moore.
“Yes,” Moore replied. “This is a film of all answers. It’s like no problems — all solutions.”
