Talk about mansplaining . . . could Michael Moore possibly have been any more patronizing and condescending to women? Appearing on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show this morning, Moore approvingly cited and adopted actor John Leguizamo’s proposition that women who voted for Donald Trump were “victims” who did so out of “ingrained misogyny and sexism.”

Those poor, confused women Trump voters who thought they had the ability to make decisions for themselves. The dearies didn’t realize that they had been subconsciously programmed and were nothing more than—to use a favorite Rush phrase—mind-numbed robots.

But not to worry, Michael will be there to guide those benighted distaff souls. Moore ended by piously observing that the high percentage of women who voted for Trump “just says that we’ve got more work to do and we’ll keep doing it.”

MICHAEL MOORE: I was at this one thing, John Leguizamo, the brilliant actor and comedian, Hispanic, he says I’m Hispanic and I always thought racism was our number one problem that we are going to have to deal with, but this election really showed that we’ve ignored the misogyny and the sexism that is still so prevalent and ingrained.

And ingrained in many of the victims, the 46% of women that voted for Trump, and the 53% of white women that voted for Trump. And that’s — well, that just says that we’ve got more work to do and we’ll keep doing it.
