Was Donald Trump Really Encouraged to Run...by Gwen Stefani?
Mind you, this theory is according to Michael Moore (see Michael Moore: I’ll ‘Find Ways’ To Stop Trump’s Supreme Court Nomination and Michael Moore: ‘Put Your Bodies on the Line Against Trump’). But let me blow your mind. Underneath it all, there may be some truth to Gwen Stefani being Trump's rationale to run for president. And that The Donald thought he would make the great escape before Election Day. Instead, he started running running, as fast as he could.
The puns were why you clicked the link. No doubt. If not, don't tell me 'cause it hurts.
In Moore’s new Trump documentary, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” which debuts Thursday at the Toronto Film Festival, Moore alleges that when Trump still starred on NBC’s “The Apprentice,” he realized Stefani’s salary on the network’s hit “The Voice” was higher than his.
"Gwen Stefani? But she's just a girl." - Trump. Probably.
So as a negotiating tactic he staged his June 2015 Trump Tower announcement to prove his popularity.
Moore says in the film: “Trump found out that NBC was paying Gwen Stefani more on ‘The Voice’ than Trump got paid for ‘The Apprentice.’ So he planned a fake announcement to run for president . . . in order to prove to NBC he was more popular than Gwen and [they] would give him more money.”
Don't speak. I know just what you're saying.
There's a conspiracy about that Donald Trump didn't think this whole "running for president" thing through. Many people have assumed the initial run was just a negotiation tactic for something. Though Michael Moore isn't what we'd call a reliable source of information.
Big Mike also needs to fully transition. Michael, we know. Being transgender is all the rage these days. They're #1 on the left's pound-for-pound most marginalized rankings. We here at LwC know you have the courage to come out. It's time to bring Michelle out of the Dunkin Donuts of your heart. Not transitioning at this point is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-AS!
We can spend a few more times going around this track. So it's not just gonna happen like that. But come on Michael. We know you're a secret hollaback girl.
