(NewsGlobal.com)- On MSNBC’s “Alex Witt Reports” on Saturday, left-wing activist and filmmaker Michael Moore claimed that Republican House members’ rivalry over leadership is “proof that there is a God in heaven.”
“I wanted to ask you about the tit-for-tat kind of fighting that’s going on in the Republican party,” Witt said.
He said to Moore that the controversial far-right congresswoman, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Lauren Boebert have been taking these swipes at each other over Kevin McCarthy’s bid for House speaker.
Does it highlight the current fractiousness of the Republican party, she questioned?
“It is evidence that there is a God in heaven,” according to Moore.
He said he wasn’t joking and “this is what will really see us through the next two years until we regain control of the House.”
Moore said that on the Republican side of the aisle, they are so confused. They’re squabbling. Even without those votes, Kevin McCarthy will not become the speaker.
“They are so discombobulated… They are fighting. Kevin McCarthy can’t even get the votes he needs to be the speaker. They are in such a wreck right now. We created that wreck because they literally did think, as McCarthy said back in the spring and summer, we’re going to pick up 60 House seats in our red wave.”
He said that at the moment, the thin margin the Republicans have means that out of the 200 or so Republicans who will be in the House, “only four or five of them need to change their vote on any given bill in order for us to pass that bill.”
“We can actually pass legislation,” the morbidly obese Moore said.
Moore also used the “there is a God in heaven” claim when lives were at stake.
“I was just thinking, this Gustav (hurricane) is proof that there is a God in heaven. To have it planned at the same time – that it would actually be on its way to New Orleans for day one of the Republican Convention, up in the Twin Cities – at the top of the Mississippi River.”
One way to put Moore’s case is as follows:
This week, the Republican Convention occurs at the Mississippi River’s “top.”
At the same time, Hurricane Gustav will hit New Orleans, which is located at the Mississippi River’s “bottom.”
These two events’ timings are not coincidental.
As a result, there must be a God who sent this human tragedy to draw attention away from the Republican National Convention.
The guy is a mean-spirited jerk.
