Michael Moore Suggests The Democrat Who'd Crush Donald Trump, If She Were Old Enough

“She is the leader, everybody knows it, everybody feels it," the documentary filmmaker said.

Michael Moore lamented the constitutional rule that sets a minimum age of 35 for the president on Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word.”

The documentary filmmaker said it was “too bad” because, otherwise, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) would have been able to throw her hat into the ring.

Moore appeared to suggest, in a roundabout way, that the freshman lawmaker could be one of the only Democrats who could not only beat President Donald Trump but also “crush” him in a presidential race.

“She is the leader, everybody knows it, everybody feels it, she’s the leader of this mass movement,” he said.

Check out the clip above and Moore’s explanation as to why Trump can “see the writing on the wall” in the Midwest below:
