(CNN)—Outspoken documentary film-maker Michael Moore said Wednesday night Hillary Clinton is trying to scare voters away from casting a ballot for Barack Obama.
In a wide ranging interview, Moore told CNN’s Larry King he found the Clinton campaign’s recent approach “disgusting.”
“For her to try and make white—white working class, as they say - people vote for her and not for him, to frighten them with words like ‘Hamas’ and ‘Farrakhan’” was unnecessary, he said. “I think at some point she’s going to be disappointed in herself for having done that.”
The 54-year-old Oscar-winning filmmaker, who endorsed Obama’s presidential bid on his Web site one day before Pennsylvania’s critical April 22, said Wednesday he can’t support anyone who voted for an “immoral war [that] should have never happened,” and repeated his calls for Clinton to apologize for her Iraq war vote, as Sen. John Kerry and former Sen. John Edwards have done.
But Moore said the campaign should center on the idea that John McCain is four more years of George W. bush,” and “not [on] what an elderly black man is saying because […] we’re not voting for Reverend Wright.”
