Sexist men are in for a rude awakening if Hillary Clinton wins next week’s presidential election, Michael Moore said Tuesday.
According to The Huffington Post, the documentarian remarked that male Americans will be forced to “get over it” and deal with the concept of a female commander-in-chief. “It’s the muscle memory of 10,000 years that’s in our DNA where we’ve run the show forever,” he explained to MSNBC host Chris Hayes. “Next Tuesday, possibly ― hopefully ― a woman is going to lead the most powerful country on Earth. In other words, the 10,000-year reign is over.”
Moore pointed out that racist whites also faced a mental adjustment when Barack Obama became the first African-American president. “I grew up in a time when the ‘N’ word was used as often as you would say the word Kleenex,” the filmmaker recalled. “Those people had to change. The future came in; everything moved forward. These men are not going to be able to stay this way. They’ll get on board the train and they’ll realize that actually having women having a say in what’s going on makes the planet ― makes your life, actually ― better.”
Moore added jokingly: “Let women run the show. It’s going to be a lot less stress on us. They live three years longer than us. We’re going to get to live those extra three years now.”
HuffPost reported that Obama declared recently: “Guys have got about a week to wrap their heads around the fact that Hillary Clinton is going to be president of the United States.”
