Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore asked for the “angry white men” of America to “just take a break” in an interview on Thursday.
During an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Moore said that he, being an “angry white guy over 50 with a high school education,” is part of President Trump’s targeted demographic.
But he said he and his “fellow angry white American guys” have been “running the show for 10,000 years,” and it’s time to give someone else a chance.
“It’s like, we’ve had a long run as men running everything and the Yankees could never win as many pennants as we’ve won in these 10,000 years as men,” Moore said.
“So, why don’t we just take a break? Let the majority gender run the show. What are you scared of?” he continued. “Women actually like us, most of us.”
