Apppearing on “Real Time with Bill Maher” filmmaker Michael Moore claimed “The only way Republicans can win, and this has been true for a few elections, is to cheat. Is to somehow game it, rig it, do whatever they need to do.”
Per TheHill “The only way they are going to pull it off is if he’s able to cancel the election or postpone it,” Moore said of the Trump campaign. “That is what we’re going to have to fight against because I’m certain that is what is going on in his head right now.”
Moore noted that Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic candidate, won the popular vote against Trump by three million votes but still lost the election. He suggested that Biden will win by five million, but said Trump could still win the Electoral College with the help of his ardent fanbase of supporters.
Maher suggested that is why Trump is warning against making voting easier for more people, noting Trump’s comments earlier this month against mail-in ballots: “You’d never have a Republican elected in this country again.”
“That is actually what he said,” Maher said. “You’ve got to give it to this guy, he does speak his inner monologue.”
Moore said that if voting is made easier and there is no voter suppression, “Republicans are going to lose.”
“Because the majority of the country does not support the Republican agenda. The majority of the country are not climate deniers. The majority of the country believe women should be paid the same as men. Go down the whole list — the majority of the country takes the liberal, center, left Democratic Party position on most issues,” Moore said.
“The only way Republicans can win, and this has been true for a few elections, is to cheat. Is to somehow game it, rig it, do whatever they need to do,” he added.
