Michael Moore Uses Andrew Breitbart Against Wife in Divorce Case

All is fair in love and war even when you’re an anti-war activist. And Michael Moore is using a Breitbart article about his $2 million vacation home to claim his wife was making him look bad.

With his divorce trial looming, Michael Moore is battling his wife over the valuation of the couple’s assets, while branding her a spendthrift who “unilaterally wasted a large percentage of the marital funds” building a lakefront mansion that has prompted mocking news stories about the activist filmmaker’s wealth.

Moore and Glynn jointly own “multiple substantial residences and multiple companies,” including Dog Eat Dog Films, the production company behind hit movies like “Roger & Me” and “Bowling for Columbine.” The couple’s real estate holdings include a total of nine properties in Michigan and New York. The duo co-owns a Manhattan condo that was created through the combination of three separate units.

But it is the northern Michigan mansion that appears to be the couple’s most contentious asset, and bad press about the home has apparently rankled Moore.

Included among the nearly 300 items on Moore’s trial exhibit list are six stories published in 2011 about the Torch Lake compound. Each of the articles described the luxury residence, while some of the reports noted that the Occupy Wall Street supporter was living like a member of the “1%.” One story described the residence as “Moore’s $2M hypocrite house,” while another article’s headline declared that the director’s “Massive Michigan Vacation Mansion Beyond 99 Percent’s Wildest Dreams.”

So according to Moore, owning nine properties in New York, including a triple Condo, was the problem because conservative sites such as Breitbart and the National Post began making fun of him.

Breitbart, seizing on Moore’s embrace of Occupy Wall Street and his denial that he’s among the richest 1 percent of Americans, has posted five photos of Moore’s lavish vacation home on Lake Torch in Michigan.

“No one begrudges Moore his wealth, but it is deceitful for him to claim poverty while encouraging class warfare among other Americans,” Breitbart wrote beneath one of the photos. “It is also purely narcissistic and selfish for Moore to back radical and destructive socialist policies that would deny other Americans the opportunity to become as rich as he is.”

I’ve seen the apartment listed at $1.27 million back in 1999. That means it could top $2 million today. But I’m sure that’s his wife’s fault too. And his wife, no doubt, made him buy Haliburton stock and then lie about it.

Or maybe it was George Bush. But it’s never Moore’s fault.

    Hey Team America, I got something for ya!

      And Bush TOO!

      Given his girth, I suggest we start referring to him as the the Moore brothers…

    Seriously, why is Michael Moore dumping his wife?

    Is it because he is richer, he can upgrade? Get that trophy wife.

    On a scale of 1 to 10 Glynn is equal to Michael or 1 or 2 points better looking.

    If it is because she is fat, he is fat also and there is that bit about on sickness or in health. Except liberals have thrown out all religious underpinnings to marriage and divorce so I guess Michael has carte blanche.

    Besides obesity has multiple causes. Glynn might be sick. And here is Michael throwing under the bus!

    And this obese hypocrite pig drones on about the Rich.

  • UCSPanther

    This hambone is a major hypocrite who has been caught so many times that it isn’t newsworthy any more.

    His wife is probably the same type of creature as well…

    I think that Moore’s soon-to-be ex-wife should be awarded some sort of prize, because (presuming she had sexual-relations with her hubby) she did NOT conceive any offspring from that fat-phucking-tub-o’-lard which means that (hopefully) Moore’s DNA will die off without further polluting our otherwise troubled gene pool.

    • Bigearsbarry

      One can only hope it does. The gene pool needs cleaning and this would be a great start.

  • catherineinpvb

    Do wonder what Roger’s ‘charitable deductions’ might be, on his tax return? Does he give up his old underwear, and claim it a charitable write off, as did the Clinton’s – or as they still do, as case may be?

    • Veruckteamericaner

      He probably leaves the skid marks in them too.

      • Frankie “da scarf”

        We’re talkin’ MAJOR swerve here!

  • BS77

    Surely his wife deserves some kind of Masochist Award or something for actually living with this Jabba the Hut for so long…..

  • Siritis

    Typical limousine liberal crap—-create a situation and then blame someone from actually pointing it out.

  • kogk1943

    Just another fake, phony, fraud neo-liberal POFS.

  • DemocratsAreRacists

    Poor frumpy. His wife is frumpy too.

      Just goes to show you, you can drinkem pretty, but you can’t drinkem thin.

    My son watched his anti gun movie.
    That is a tragedy of propaganda.
