Michael Moore just made Trump regret his oil drilling policy with a brilliant move

- 16.26

Michael Moore has figured out a way to get Trump to rescind his decision to expand off-shore drilling and imperil America’s coastlines with the threat of more frequent and larger oil spills like the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico. He detailed his strategy in a series of tweets today.

Moore’s reasoning is seemingly that since Trump cares about himself more than anyone or anything else and that since he’s a real estate developer at heart, causing falling property values at Trump’s own property will be the only thing that would motivate him to cease his environmentally destructive policies.

The administration announced on Thursday a proposal to allow oil exploration in most of the water off the U.S, coastline, including areas of the Arctic Sea and the Atlantic Ocean that have been off-limits as protected environmentally sensitive locations. State and local officials have wisely taken a not-in-my-backyard approach to an industry not known for resulting in pristine unspoiled beaches.

Moore’s stable genius is in realizing that Trump’s decision could cut both ways and affect the President in a very personal and unprofitable way and in weaponizing that realization into an effective manner that just may convince Trump to drop the plan.

Unfortunately, knowing Trump, he’ll simply ban fracking and drilling within a limited radius from Mar-a-Lago and let the peons everywhere else suffer the effects he wouldn’t want his own property to suffer.
