In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter posted last week, the filmmaker said that President Donald Trumps jealousy of singer Gwen Stefani led him to run for president.
The trade publication said Moore told them that when Trump learned Stefani’s performance fees as a coach on NBC’s “The Voice” were greater than what he earned for “The Apprentice” on the same network, he staged his Trump Tower campaign announcement in June 2015 to show NBC how popular he was. You now the escalator speech.
“He’d been talking about running for president since 1988, but he didn’t really want to be president,” Moore said. “There’s no penthouse in the White House. And he doesn’t want to live in a black city. He was trying to pit NBC against another network, but it just went off the rails.”
Do you think this is true??
