While liberal media pundits gloated over the empty seats at President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa on Saturday night, leftist filmmaker Michael Moore has some devastating news for Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
Unlike Trump’s loyal base, Democrat voters are not exactly excited over the idea of Biden becoming president, Moore warned. “…deep down we know there’s no massive, intense love of Joe Biden, no one is all dreamy and jazzy when they think about Joe Biden’s jobs plan, Joe Biden’s health care plan, child care plan, criminal justice plan, income inequality plan …” he wrote on social media.
The Trump rally
The turnout for the Trump rally was not quite what everyone expected, but there were several outside factors that may have influenced the poor showing. Tthe Trump campaign blamed protesters for blocking access to the gates and for threats of violence that discouraged families from attending. Concerns about the coronavirus, amplified by the media, may also have dissuaded some attendees at the last minute.
Even with the disappointing total, no matter the circumstance, the attendance at Trump’s rally far exceeds anything Joe Biden has been able to turn out.
No love for Joe
Michael Moore, a prominent Trump critic who correctly predicted that Trump would win the election in 2016, is not buying into the idea that Trump is losing support or that he will be a walkover for Biden come election day. Quite the opposite, actually.
Moore wrote a post on Instagram warning that everyone rejoicing over the low turnout for the event better watch out because Trump’s support is far from waning in this country. Even more important, according to Moore, is there is simply no such excitement about Biden:
“They started lining up on Tues in Tulsa for Trump’s rally today. 100,000 are expected! Trump has lost none of his base and they are more rabid than ever,” he wrote. “Sleeping on the sidewalk for five nights just to get in to see Trump? THAT is commitment. Do not take Trump for granted. Don’t think he can’t win. Don’t get all cocky telling everyone there’s no way he’s winning the White House because, frankly, you sound a lot like yourself four years ago when you told everyone there’s no way this country is going to put a clown in the Oval Office. If you are once again not taking my warnings seriously, then I have a question I want you to answer, and I ask you to answer me honestly: ‘How many people would line up for five days just to hear Joe Biden talk?’ 12? 5? None?”
“The candidate who inspires the most people in the swing states to excitedly get to the polls — and ensure that each of them bring 10-20 of their friends & family w/ them on Election Day — all of them highly-motivated, fired-up, & ‘on a mission from God’ — THAT’S who wins the White House,” Moore wrote.
“Don’t think we don’t have a problem here. Don’t get all smug laughing at these Bubbas in Tulsa today & snickering over how many of them are going to come down with Covid-19. They live, eat and breathe Trump — and none of us do that with Joe Biden, Moore continued. “We’re counting on Hatred of Trump – not love of Biden – to win the day. Is that how you really think — hate beats love? Like, the more we ply our neighbor’s hatred of Trump, that’s the ticket to win? Because deep down we know there’s no massive, intense love of Joe Biden, no one is all dreamy and jazzy when they think about Joe Biden’s jobs plan, Joe Biden’s health care plan, child care plan, criminal justice plan, income inequality plan — ‘Mike! Stop! We get it.’ Trump’s ppl will pack the polling sites. Our people will, well…well…they’ll be there! That’s not enough. We’d better figure this out. Biden better get out of the basement. We need to know he’s ok. We need to know what Plan B is. Don’t be afraid to search your own mind about what you’re afraid to ask or say. We can’t risk ANYTHING with this election. Biden has to rock everyone’s world to win. I’m just the messenger.”
Moore’s warning should be heeded, because even on Trump’s worst day, he gets far better attendance than anything Biden is doing right now. During a recent event in Pennsylvania, Joe Biden had space for about 20 people, and he could not even fill the room…

The New York Times reported, “You could hear the clack of typing echoing across the room. The silence was striking.” The article went on to say, “Then, Mr. Biden appeared. He arrived with such little fanfare that I didn’t even notice him enter the room.”
Biden is still dominating Trump in polls both nationwide and in key battleground states, but that could all change in a flash if Biden continues to hide out or gets exposed during debates.
