RUSH: You gotta hear this. This is Michael Moore, whose latest movie bombed big time. You know why it bombed? ‘Cause he’s charging people to hear his insanity, and you don’t have to pay for it anymore. You can turn onlate-night comedy shows on any network and hear the same crap and not have to pay a dime for it. Ditto, HBO. Well, you have to pay a cable subscription. So Michael Moore? No big deal!
So he’s doing anything he can to attract attention, and he was like on late-night on NBC last night.
MOORE: I said, “Do you believe that an economic system that benefits…?”
RUSH: Wait a minute. Wait a minute! Wait. We need to recue that. I left something out. He’s talking about having met the pope, and he was asked (paraphrased), “What was your interaction with the pope, Il Papa, the Vatican, the Catholic Church pope? What was it like?”
MOORE: I said, “Do you believe that an economic system that benefits the few, the wealthy, at the expense of the many is a sin?” And he said to me, “Si” in Italian, and I said, “So you believe capitalism, the kind of… The capitalism we have now is a sin?” He goes, “Yes, it is.” He says, “The poor must always come first,” and then he grabbed my hand he said, “You know, please pray for me,” and I said, “I will, and please pray for me,” and he said, “No, you have to make more movies.”
RUSH: Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho. So Il Papa. Pope what’s his name… Yeah, Pope Francisco, says, (impression) “You make more movies; I will pray for you.” Okay. All right.
