Wednesday, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore pleaded with Democrats to “reach across the turkey” during their Thanksgiving meals and explain to their conservative family members how Democratic policies will benefit them.
Partial transcript of Moore as follows:
A lot of people have mentioned this to me is that they have not invited the people who’ve been starting fights the last two years. And so especially, they are – families are not inviting the family bigot. They don’t want racism uttered at the Thanksgiving day table, especially with children at the table so they’re just having – they’ve had to tell, you know, brothers or uncles or whatever that, I’m sorry but there’s been now three years of this — 16, 17 and 18 where we’ve had to listen to this and the kids are not going to be listening to the you know misogyny and things like that. So, I think that’s going to help on some – with some dinner tables tomorrow. But I’d like to just suggest to liberals, lefties, Democrats you know, who are watching that there is a way to sort of reach across the turkey and, you know, try to help people...
You’re not going to – you’re not going to go bankrupt like half a million people did last year because of health care bills. Here’s what I think I’m going to do for you. I’m going to put your kids to college, not me personally, but me and my 330 million fellow citizens who are all going to chip in so that your kid can get a college education and not be in a debtor’s prison when she or he is out of college. That’s what I’m going to do for you.
