The documentary filmmaker noted for his liberal political stance made it clear that he wished the constitutional age restriction for those who could serve as president could be rescinded for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in time for 2020.
Michael Moore stated that the most important factor for Democratic voters should be ‘who can crush Trump’ after he was prompted by Ali Velshi on MSNBC’s The Last Word regarding the declared field of candidates.
‘It’s too bad you have to be 35 to be president,’ Moore said. ‘We put that in the constitution, the Founding Fathers, because people died at 38 or 40 back then. Y’know, we need to lower that. If that was lowered to 30 …’
After Moore left that hanging, Velshi asks him if Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is where he was going with that train of thought. Moore points out that if the restriction was lower now, she could be running for 2020.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on January 30. The 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez would not be able to run for president in 2020 due to the constitutional restriction on age

The 29-year-old freshman Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez from New York would be 30 by the time the next inauguration would be scheduled.
‘She is the leader. Everybody knows it. Everybody feels it. She is the leader of this mass movement,’ Moore says of Ocasio-Cortez.
To bolster the claim, he pointed to a poll shown on FOX News that the majority of Americans agree with her proposals to increase the marginal tax rate to 70 percent on the richest citizens.
When Velshi points out that FOX News likes to talk about Ocasio-Cortez and asks if there is a danger in alienating political moderates in having a figure as politically left-wing as she is be the face of the Democratic party.
Moore emphatically stated that political moderation could no longer be a consideration
Moore was responding to Velshi’s question on the various candidates who have already declared for the Democratic nomination in the 2020 race
‘I’m not, no. First of all, If you’re being moderate, stop being moderate. Take a position,’ Moore replied. ‘There’s no middle ground anymore. There’s no halfway point to should somebody be paid a living wage. “Well, I’m a moderate so I think they could be paid half of that living wage.”‘
‘You know, on the issue of choice, there is no halfway there. You’re either for it or you’re against it,’ he continued pressing his point. ‘Do you believe in equal rights for women? Do you believe we should have an Equal Rights Amendment? There’s no middle ground. There’s no time for moderation.’
At the end of the interview, Moore added another firm position as he told the New Orleans Saints, the team that lost to Los Angeles Rams playing in the Super Bowl, to ‘quit all the whining’ about controversial officiating during their game two weeks ago.
