Oh, Gwen Stefani, we used to love you. But Michael Moore‘s claim that you are the reason Donald Trump became a United States presidential candidate is making us rethink that. We kid, of course, Gwen. We could never not love you. If anything, it just reaffirms the ridiculousness that is Trump. Because of course only he would decide something as important as RUNNING A COUNTRY on money.
According to Moore, Trump decided to announce his candidacy after learning Stefani made more as a coach on The Voice than he did as host of The Apprentice, both of which aired on NBC.

“He’d been talking about running for president since 1998, but he didn’t really want to be president,” Moore alleged to The Hollywood Reporter. “There’s no penthouse in the White House. And he doesn’t want to live in a black city. He was trying to pit NBC against another network, but it just went off the rails.”
Trump’s role as host of The Apprentice ended after 14 seasons when the network cut ties with him following his comments about Mexican nationals. That was in 2015. By that point, however, Trump had already planted the seed of succeeding Obama and people were eating it up. Should he back down or continuing giving the public what they thought they wanted? And here we are today.
So, really, Gwen might have been the catalyst (pfft, she’s just a girl, after all) but everything else was and is all Trump. Now, that’s if you believe what Moore’s peddling. Considering everything else, we have no doubt.
