Michael Moore to Biden: Why Are You Ignoring the Black Community in Michigan?
Liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore expressed concerns over Democratic nominee former Vice President Joe Biden’s outreach to Black voters in Michigan on Sunday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Weekends.”
Moore said, “I get calls every day from people in Michigan, ‘I can’t get a yard sign. I can’t get a yard sign’ Yesterday, a couple of friends of mine, we got together some art, we are just going to start printing our own yard signs for Biden. If we have to save the Democrats from themselves, that’s what we’ll do.”
He added, “This is a very good question to ask the Biden campaign because Hillary couldn’t get the yard signs. But Charlotte Alter points out in this TIME magazine article, there are not even field houses. You can’t go anywhere. There are no real Biden people on the ground in that way, in a way you would have. And the way they tried to kind of fluff it off is say ‘Well, it’s the 21st century, we do everything digital now.’ Man, why would you take—why would you use Michigan as the experiment? After what happened in 2016? When Hillary lost Michigan by only two votes per precinct, that’s all. Why risk anything? Why are you ignoring the black community? Biden has only come to Michigan once and only met —he went to two white towns, one in Macomb County and one what we call downriver Detroit.”
