  • ♪ >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'RE BACK HERE WITH MICHAEL MOORE.

  • NOW, YOU'VE MADE DOCUMENTARIES OVER THE LAST FOUR YEARS, BUT IF

  • YOU WERE GOING TO LOOK BACK AND MAKE A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE

  • LAST FOUR YEARS IN AMERICA, ABOUT THE SWEEP OF IT, WHAT

  • WOULD YOU SAY THE LESSON OR THE THEMES YOU WOULD TAKE FROM THE

  • LAST FOUR YEARS OF THIS PRESIDENCY?

  • >> FIRST, I WOULD NOT MAKE THAT FILM, IN PART BECAUSE WHO WOULD

  • WANT TO WATCH A FILM THAT SHOWED YOU THE LAST FOUR YEARS?

  • WE JUST LIVED THROUGH IT.

  • THE WORST THING I COULD DO TO PEOPLE IS SHOW THEM THE LAST

  • FOUR YEARS.

  • FOR THAT REASON ALONE, THE IDEA IS OUT, BUT YOUR QUESTION IS A

  • GOOD ONE.

  • >> Stephen: THANK YOU.

  • WHAT IF WE LEARNED?

  • AND I THINK THE THING THAT'S BEEN -- THE FACT THAT WE AS

  • AMERICANS WOULD ALLOW A SITUATION -- SO MANY SITUATIONS,

  • ACTUALLY -- TO EXIST, WHETHER IT'S TAKING BABIES OUT OF THEIR

  • MOTHERS' ARMS, PUTTING THEM IN CAGES, WHETHER IT'S ALL THE

  • OTHER STUFF THAT WE LET THIS GO ON, IT WAS DONE IN OUR NAME,

  • AND, YOU KNOW, IT'S -- YOU KNOW, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO ANSWER

  • FOR THIS SOME DAY BECAUSE IT WAS DONE IN MY NAME, AND MY TAX

  • DOLLARS PAID FOR IT.

  • SO I THINK THAT'S A VERY -- I THINK IT'S GOING TO TAKE A WHILE

  • FOR US.

  • IN A WAY, I GUESS WE CAN REDEEM OURSELVES WITH THIS IS OUR NEW

  • PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT ARE GOING TO DO THINGS THAT ARE

  • GOING TO BE THERE FOR PEOPLE.

  • I MEAN, JUST BEFORE WE STARTED, THE THING CAME ACROSS THAT THE

  • POPE HAD CALLED JOE BIDEN, AND THEY HAD A CONVERSATION, AND THE

  • BIDEN CAMPAIGN, THEY PUT OUT A READOUT OF WHAT THE CONVERSATION

  • SAID, AND IN THERE THEY TALKED ABOUT -- BIDEN TALKED ABOUT, TO

  • THE POPE, ABOUT HOW HE WAS GOING TO MAKE AMERICA A WELCOMING

  • PLACE FOR PEOPLE, FOR REFUGEES, FOR THE HAVE-NOTS, AND THE

  • HAVE-NOTS THAT WE HAVE HERE ARE GOING TO HAVE THE PRIMARY FOCUS

  • BECAUSE, I MEAN, THIS IS OUR SECOND CATHOLIC PRESIDENT, SO,

  • YOU KNOW, HE -- >> Stephen: THAT'S BEEN

  • OVERLOOKED A LITTLE BIT.

  • NOT AS MUCH A DEAL HAS BEEN MADE OF THAT.

  • >> RIGHT.

  • >> Stephen: BUT AS A CATHOLIC MYSELF, I WAS REALLY STRUCK --

  • FIRST OF ALL, I KNOW MR. BIDEN TO BE A FREQUENT IF NOT DAILY

  • COMCOMMUNICANT AND HE TAKES HIS FAITH SERIOUSLY AND I'M MOVED

  • WITH THE CONVERSATIONS I'VE HAD WITH HIM PUBLICLY AND PRIVATELY

  • ABOUT HIS FAITH, AND YOU'VE HAD AN OPEN CONVERSATION ABOUT HIS

  • RELIGION.

  • WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT TO YOU?

  • >> BECAUSE HE AND YOU AND I, WE ALL WENT TO CATHOLIC SCHOOL AND

  • LEARNED THE SAME LESSONS.

  • I SAID TO HIM IN THIS LETTER, WHAT ARE THE LESSONS?

  • THE LESSON IS THE RICH MAN WILL HAVE A HARDER TIME GETTING INTO

  • HEAVEN THAN A CAMEL GETTING INTO THE EYE OF A NEEDLE.

  • BLESSED ARE THE POOR, THAT WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE WHO

  • DON'T -- WHO ARE THE LEAST AMONG US, THAT'S HOW WE'LL BE JUDGED.

  • SO I SAID I'M ASSUMING -- I SAID THIS TO HIM -- THAT THESE ARE

  • GOING TO BE THE MORAL PRINCIPLES OF THE BIDEN PRESIDENCY.

  • I'M JUST GOING TO ASSUME THAT AUTOMATICALLY BECAUSE I DO

  • BELIEVE HE'S A MAN OF FAITH, AND I THINK THAT IS GOING TO SERVE

  • US REALLY WELL.

  • FOR THIS EXAMPLE, STEPHEN, THE FACT THAT HE PICKED KAMALA

  • HARRIS TO BE HIS RUNNING MATE, BUT ASIDE THE FACT THAT TRUMP

  • AND PENCE WERE RIGHT WHEN SHE IS RANKED THE MOST LIBERAL SENATOR

  • IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE, SO HE WENT TO THE LEFT WHEN HE

  • CHOSE HIS VICE PRESIDENT.

  • MORE THAN THAT, IN THE FIRST DEBATE, SHE WENT AFTER HIM.

  • >> Stephen: OH, THEY BUTTED HEADS, YEAH.

  • >> AND YOU COULD SEE ON HIS FACE, HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

  • SAY.

  • LATER I THOUGHT, HE HAS A CONSCIENCE, THERE'S A LITTLE

  • VOICE IN THERE SAYING, WELL, YOU KNOW, MAYBE SHE'S GOT A POINT.

  • YOU KNOW, BUT THAT WAS THE YOUNGER ME.

  • AND SHE WAS THROWING SHADE ON THE YOUNGER SELF OF JOE BIDEN.

  • BUT THE FACT THAT NOT ONLY HE FORGAVE THAT, THAT HE HELD NO

  • GRUDGE, THAT HE JUST DIDN'T FORGIVE, HE PUT HER ON THE

  • TICKET, WHO WOULD DO THAT?

  • I WOULD LIKE TO THINK I WOULD, BUT I DON'T THINK I WOULD.

  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WOULD.

  • YOU KNOW, WE WOULD LIKE -- HE DID THAT, AND I THOUGHT, WOW, IF

  • THAT IS HIS MORAL COMPASS, IF THIS IS HOW HE IS TOWARD PEOPLE,

  • PEOPLE WHO HE PROBABLY -- HE WAS PROBABLY MAD AT HER THAT NIGHT,

  • BUT HE DIDN'T HOLD IT AGAINST HER, SHE HAD A RIGHT TO SAY IT,

  • THEN HE PICS HER TO BE VICE PRESIDENT.

  • THIS IS SUCH A POSITIVE SIGN FOR ME THAT WE ARE GOING TO BE IN

  • THE POLAR OPPOSITE ERA THAN THE FOUR YEARS THAT WE JUST WENT

  • THROUGH.

  • >> Stephen: I WOULD AGREE.

  • WHILE THE UNITED STATES STILL HAS THE SAME PROBLEMS IT HAD TWO

  • WEEKS AGO, AT LEAST THE POSITION OF THE PRESIDENT WILL BE

  • OCCUPIED BY SOMEONE WHO IS GOING TO EMBODY SOME OF THE

  • PRINCIPLES, RELIGIOUS OR NOT, THAT WE NEED AS A MORAL EXAMPLE

  • FOR ALL OF US TO GET ALONG.

  • MYEL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

  • HIS PODCAST "RUMBLE WITH MICHAEL MOORE" IS AVAILABLE ON APPLE

  • PODCAST.

  • THE MAN IS MICHAEL MOORE, EVERYBODY.

  • WHEN WE COME BACK, ST STEVE CARE AND I DISCUSS EXCITING MOVIES WE

  • FORGOT WE MADE TOGETHER.

  • STICK AROUND, THANKS, MICHAEL.
