indieWIRE's Online Video of the Day: Michael Moore Wants Matt Damon To Run For President

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has seemingly endorsed actor Matt Damon for President of the United States. During an online discussion for firedoglake.com on Sunday, Moore applauded Damon taking a “courageous” stand against key political issues, including the national debt crisis and the rights of teachers.

“I think that he’s been very courageous and not caring about who he offends by coming out and saying the things that need to be said here,” Moore said. “If you wanna win, the Republicans have certainly shown the way: that when you run someone who is popular, you win. Sometimes even when you run an actor, you win. I only throw his name out there because I’d like us to start thinking that way.”

Check out the audio from the interview below, and vote in the poll to voice whether you think Moore is barking up the right tree.
