Much like failed politician Hillary Clinton, Michael Moore should just learn when to shut up.
The aggressively liberal filmmaker launched a website Tuesday that allows “patriotic Americans” to anonymously notify Moore and his team of “crimes, breaches of public trust and misconduct committed by Donald J. Trump.”
In other words, it’s a tool specifically designed to appeal to Trump leakers, like alleged traitor Reality Winner.
Gee, that concept sounds awfully familiar. But not only is Moore’s website unoriginal and much more narrow-minded than WikiLeaks — he also gave it a horrific name.
Today, I’m launching TrumpiLeaks, a site that will enable courageous whistleblowers to privately communicate with me and my team. Patriotic Americans in government, law enforcement or the private sector with knowledge of crimes, breaches of public trust and misconduct committed by Donald J. Trump and his associates are needed to blow the whistle in the name of protecting the United States of America from tyranny.
We’ve put together several tools you can use to securely send information and documents as well as photographs, video and/or audio recordings. While no form of digital communication is 100% secure, the tools we’re using at TrumpiLeaks provide the most secure technology possible to protect your anonymity (and if you don’t require anonymity, you can just email me here).
Moore goes on to compare his courageous and “risky” act to those of the Founding Fathers, but no one cares about his heroics – they can’t even get past the awful name.

Sounds about as a legit as an unsecured server stored in the crapper…https://t.co/ZSZOVsWaSB

It sounds like an ad for adult diapers. “Blow the whistle and trust your Trumpileaks to avoid embarrassing stains!” https://t.co/RNuUCil5EJ

Ah, now it makes sense; the name is a meta-commentary on how liberal anti-Trumpers are still acting like a bunch of whiny babies seven months after the election.
WikiLeaks themselves responded, slamming Moore’s site as insufficiently secure:
Michael Moore’s #Trumpileaks is not secure enough to protect sources with classified information but it is better than many newspapers.

This isn’t the only anti-Trump project Moore has cooked up. His Broadway show, “The Terms of My Surrender,” will debut July 28. It’s billed as a one-man attempt to bring down the president.
Good luck with that.
Additionally, he and producer Harvey Weinstein announced a new film, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” a reference to the day after Trump’s election. The name is a play on Moore’s documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11,” his 2004 anti-George W. Bush film. Apparently Moore can’t be bothered to come up with his own titles anymore.
