Michael Moore appealed to supporters of President Donald Trump to wear a mask during the pandemic, stating that “if millions” of them “die off” that’s “a lot less Republican voters.”
“I have two words for MAGA Nation: Don’t Die,” the 66-year-old filmmaker captioned his post on Instagram Wednesday, along with a series of snaps showing Trump supporters at rallies, with some not wearing a face mask. It is unclear from the photos when any of them were taken.
“Your love of and loyalty to Trump isn’t worth your life,” he added. “With 73 million of you refusing to wear a mask and to social distance, there’ll be no way to eradicate this disease. And a lot of you are going to die.”

Moore then went on to appeal to the president’s supporters on the basis that if many of them lose their lives due to the coronavirus, that will mean the Democrats will “win every election from here on out.”
