Well, this is a new one.
In his new documentary Fahrenheit 11/9, Michael Moore acknowledges that there were many, many factors that led to the rise of Donal Trump, but says the person MOST responsible for his presidency is… Gwen Stefani?
Moore posits that when Trump realized Stefani’s performance fees as a coach on The Voicewere larger than his own on The Apprentice, he staged his now-infamous Trump Tower campaign announcement to prove his popularity to NBC, which aired both shows. Says Moore, “He’d been talking about running for president since 1988, but he didn’t really want to be president. There’s no penthouse in the White House. And he doesn’t want to live in a black city. He was trying to pit NBC against another network, but it just went off the rails.” After Trump’s accusation that Mexico was sending rapists across the border, NBC cut ties with him. But Trump, suddenly finding himself cheered on by massive crowds and an indulgent media, figured why not make a serious run for the highest office in the land?
That’s it. Gwen Stefani is DEAD to me. I’ve been on the fence about for a while now, but this is IT. I’m cutting ALL TIES. The Republicans can HAVE HER!
