Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore says Democratic presidential front-runner Joseph R. Biden is too much like twice-failed candidate Hillary Clinton to win the 2020 election against President Trump.

“I don’t even want to say it out loud,” the “Fahrenheit 11/9” director told MSNBC on Tuesday. “Joe Biden is the center. Joe Biden is this year’s Hillary. Joe Biden is not going to excite the base to get out there and vote on November 3rd, 2020.”

Mr. Moore, who was one of the few prominent voices to correctly predict a 2016 election victory for Mr. Trump, said the Democratic nominee would have to be able to mobilize women, people of color and young people in order to beat the president in 2020. He’s previously expressed support for candidates Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Bernard Sanders of Vermont.

On Wednesday’s “Morning Joe,” Mr. Moore said “it’s possible” for Mr. Trump to pull off an election win if the Democrats take too long with their impeachment inquiry.

“If the Democrats go to do Mueller 2, that ain’t going to play well, and they’re going to lose the momentum that they need,” he said.
