Michael Moore Reveals the Reason He Believes Donald Trump Ran for President & It Has to Do with Gwen Stefani

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is making a shocking claim about why he believes Donald Trump ended up running for president.

Moore said it all started when Trump realized Gwen Stefani‘s performance fees while a coach on The Voice were more than he was paid while he starred on The Apprentice. Moore suggests that when Trump realized this, “he staged his now-infamous Trump Tower campaign announcement to prove his popularity to NBC.”

“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,” Moore said.

    Don’t know if the reasoning behind it is correct but I do agree Trump really didn’t want to be president. He just wanted to attention that comes with running for the job.

    I’m sick of Moore, as he continues to make comments, movies, and NO DIFFERENCE. He’s just another money grabbing Neo-liberal

    WTF? what a way to associate Stefani with Trump. not cool..

  • Jules

    I remember this story from a couple years ago. Not the part about Gwen but that Trump was trying to get more money from NBC and thought why not try to run for POTUS. No one ever thought he’d actually win. Now he regrets his decision.

    Ah yes, Michael Moore, the same guy who thought Hugo Chavez was doing such a great job in Venezuela with his brand of socialism. Moore is an idiot.

    Jeeze louise!! I like bits and pieces of Moore’s docs and I think that I share his political ideology but this? That’s just insane! And I’m certainly not insinuating that Trump is sane but …it seems as if Moore is surmising here. Oh! I’ll add that I’m positive that Michael Moore is going to do a documentary detailing the odd life of Donald Trump sooner or later.
