Mike promoted Gamergate, a controversy during which several women in the video game industry were targeted by Internet trolls in 2014.

He published an article deriding Trump on Crime & Federalism in early 2006. It referred to the billionaire as a “media whore” who “casts his image to the world on demand and recasts it constantly to suit everchanging ratings and marketing schemes,” and advised to “never trust a man who combs his hair so as to cover his shiny dome, and then flaunts a wife young enough to be his daughter.”

Mike became influential on social media, initially as part of the manosphere movement and he later helped to shape far-right narratives in the United States. He then falsely claimed during the 2016 United States presidential election that Hillary Clinton had a “seizure disorder” and Parkinson’s disease. By September the same year, his #HillarysHealth hashtag had gotten 240,000 page views. It had also become a national trending topic on Twitter.

His tweets were seen more than 100 million times during that month.

Following an appearance on Fox News’s Red Eye in August 2016, Producers of the show felt compelled afterward to say that they had made a mistake in booking him when later learning of Cernovich’s history of online disputes.
