Why is this so incredibly easy to believe, even though we’re talking about an anti-greed crusader for socialism, “share the wealth” and fairness?

Michael Moore stands firmly opposed to greed so there’s no way this would have happened (pause for laughter):
Documentarian Kathleen Glynn is cranking up the Fahrenheit on her fellow filmmaker-ex husband Michael Moore, hauling him to court for allegedly stiffing her on profits from their movie projects.
Glynn and the “Fahrenheit 9/11” director split in 2014 after 23 years of marriage, and an even longer business partnership.
“She was the driving force in the making of many of [his] films and other ventures in which Mr. Moore was the featured personality, dating back to their first big success, ‘Roger and Me’ (1989),” Glynn’s attorney Bonnie Rabin says in the new Manhattan Supreme Court suit.
He was supposed to pay her 4 percent of total revenue from his creative works — but he gave her just $541 in 2014, the suit says. That means he would have pulled in just $13,525 during a seven-month period, according to court papers.
And the best part? This is another thing the “rich don’t pay their fair share” lefty has been accused of:
And Glynn’s not buying the amount of income Moore reported to the IRS — negative $350,862 in 2014 and negative $221,025 in 2016.
What makes this all so totally believable is the sheer hypocrisy of it all, and Moore is no stranger to hypocrisy.
