Michael Moore reveals his “heartbreaking” conclusion about Biden

Filmmaker and activist Michael Moore said he believes President Joe Biden is the victim of “a form of elder abuse” as those around him pressure him to stay in the race.

“Watching the debate a week ago was heartbreaking,” Moore told MSNBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin. “Why was he allowed to go on stage in this condition? Who was looking out for him? Who is looking out for him right now?”

Moore said there are people capable of being president at 80, but Biden’s poor performance in the debate suggests something more than age.

“Something wasn’t right that night,” he said. “We all saw it. We can’t unsee it.”

Moore, a Michigan native, said most people who follow politics there believe Biden can now win in that key state, not only because of concerns about his cognitive health but also because Arab American and younger voters have turned against Biden over his Gaza policy.

Moore also praised Biden, calling him “the most progressive president we’ve had in my lifetime” and crediting him for defeating Trump last time around.

“He took out the devil in 2020,” Moore said.

On his podcast and website, Moore called on Biden to undergo a medical evaluation and, if he confirms “the obvious medical issues that were evident” during the debate, he should resign and hand over the Oval Office to Vice President Kamala Harris.
