Filmmaker Michael Moore announced he was hosting a star-studded protest of President-elect Donald Trumpâ€™s inauguration.
And who cares? No one.
At least thatâ€™s what the author of â€œMichael Moore is a Big Fat Stupid White Manâ€ says.
â€œI hate to admit it, but basically Michael Mooreâ€™s become irrelevant. I hate to admit it because that means that Iâ€™ve become irrelevant,â€ author David Hardy told the FOX Business Networkâ€™s Stuart Varney.
Hardy said Moore no longer has the clout and draw he once had. The liberal filmmaker made some of the highest-grossing documentaries of all time â€“ but his time has passed, Hardy said.
â€œIn terms of mobilizing people, he has a handful, small cadre of followers who are loud, but have no real world effect,â€ he said.
Hardy viewed Mooreâ€™s calls for protests more as a PR stunt, rather than a political statement.
â€œIn fact, Moore thrives on this sort of thing,â€ Hardy said. â€œHe desperately wants to be noticed, he doesnâ€™t want to face the fact that, you know, weâ€™re over the hill.â€
