“Something else might happen, something crazy”
December 8, 2016
Michael Moore, who correctly predicted a Donald Trump victory over Hillary Clinton, has a new prediction – that president-elect Trump will quit before he even takes office in six weeks.
Moore made the prediction on “Late Night” with host Seth Myers, noting “He’s not president until noon on January 20 of 2017, so that’s more than six weeks away.”
“Would you not agree, regardless of which side of the political fence you’re on, this has been the craziest election year? Nothing anyone has predicted has happened. The opposite has happened. So is it possible that in these next six weeks something else might happen, something crazy, something we’re not expecting?” Moore suggested.
Myers asked Moore “Do you think it’s possible that he now realizes this job is way more work than he wanted it to be?”
“Oh, he is so bummed out,” Moore replied. “He may decide he just wants to quit before he even takes office. Everyone in the audience is saying that’s not possible. Everybody in this audience at some point in their life on the first day of their job knew they had taken the wrong job.” Moore added, also calling Trump “crazy.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Moore compared Trump to George W. bush before 9/11, suggesting that he is not taking the role of President seriously.
“If you go back to August 2001, there’s the famous photo of George W. Bush on vacation in Crawford, Texas, being handed a document — there’s a photograph of this — and it says, ‘Bin Laden to Attack U.S.’ and in the document it says, ‘may use planes.’ That’s on Aug. 6, 2001, a month before the attack. And he went fishing that day. He didn’t pay attention, he didn’t read it. He just wasn’t engaged,” Moore said.
“You kind of wish you had his version of non-engagement because this president-elect doesn’t seem engaged at all. He’s more engaged with tweeting about Alec Baldwin on SNL,” Moore said.
“It’s like, you’ve got time for that, and you haven’t taken one of the national security briefings, you’ve taken only three of them in this first month.” he jabbed.
Moore noted that he “never wanted to be more wrong,” when he predicted Trump’s election win would represent the American people’s biggest “f*ck you” to the Washington establishment, even naming the states Trump would go on to win.
Moore, still desperate for Trump not to become president, has called for the Inauguration to be “disrupted” on Jan. 20, 2017.

The filmmaker tweeted that those who did not vote for Trump do not have the option of remaining silent, adding a link to the website disruptj20.org, which is calling “A BOLD MOBILIZATION AGAINST THE INAUGURATION OF DONALD TRUMP”.
“We’re bringing widespread civil resistance to the streets of Washington, DC through protests, direct actions, and even parties and we want you there with us.” their website states.
The far left group’s call to action states that “Trump stands for tyranny, greed, and misogyny. He is the champion of neo-nazis and white Nationalists.”
They even claim that “Islamic State all cheered his victory.”
In separate appearance on CNN with Van Jones, Moore was temporarily silenced by a Chrysler worker who told him that Trump had done more for him than any Democrat ever had, just by merely raising the issue of unfair trade.

Moore responded by slamming Trump, stating “There’s nothing in his behavior. The man is, first of all, a malignant narcissist, and he’s only about himself, folks. And you’re about to see that happen.”
