It falls to Michael Moores empty stomach to help explain to me the difference between hope and optimism. Right now, Im hoping that somebody will feed me today, he says. But that hope is passive. It may whet his appetite, but the disappointment will be all the more crushing if it isnt satisfied. On the other hand, he explains, optimism is constructive, strategic. Im in a first world country, and somewhere I have a wallet with a credit card and some money in it. So the optimist in me has credibility, because its safe to say I will eat. Does that make any sense? I mull it over, and I think so. While hope is passive, optimism determines the actions we will take.
Throughout our conversation mostly in a London hotel as he munches on vegetarian dumplings he scrambles around for these illustrations: some work, some dont, sometimes he gets lost down a rabbit hole. But it is an insight into the mind of one of the western lefts great communicators: an almost obsessive desire to popularise political issues and causes, to trigger an emotional reaction among audiences that spurs them into action.

I’m not sure he has the power to crush a cheeseburger box
They do not have the power to crush Trump. He has millions of patriotic Americans behind him who will not allow it.
Something that fatso needs to remember is that we patriotic Americans have the power to end anybody who tries something so blatantly stupid.
I wonder if Moore got that idea from his recent visit with his pal Frankie.
His films were always propaganda for idiots. The fact that this author views Moore’s films as a “life raft” for leftists says it all.
“Lumpy Riefenstahl threatens to sit on Trump!”
LOL! That’s a perfect description of the guy.
Michael Moore: ‘We have the power to crush Trump’

In his dreams.
Whistling past the graveyard
If MM is one of the western lefts greatest communicators, they are in WAAAAYYYYY bigger trouble than they thought.
