We are speechless! Both Michael Moore and Bill Maher, the two outspoken liberals used their fame today to bash President Trump for his tribute to the wife of fallen Navy Seal William Ryan Owens at his Congressional address.
Both Moore and Maher have claimed she was used as “prop”.
Moore and Maher were guests on MSNBC’s “Hardball” with Chris Matthews in the aftermath of the speech.
Matthews said he was “taken” by the standing ovation Carryn Owens received but called it “grotesque” for Trump to seemingly brag about the length of the applause.
“I wasn’t crazy about the response to that,” Maher said. “I wish she hadn’t allowed herself to be used as his prop like that.
“And I don’t see any great courage here. Where is the courage? Who wouldn’t stand and applaud for a war widow?”
Michael Moore went even further when discussing Owens’ wife:
“And to use that to put another notch on his belt — and what is he thinking about? ‘My ratings. Record Applause. I’m going to get an Emmy for this, most applause for a dead soldier on my watch!'”
“This is the sickness of this man,” Moore concluded.
