Does Democratic activist and filmmaker Michael Moore know something the rest of us don’t?
Moore predicted President-elect Donald Trump may not become America’s next president, saying anything can happen between now and Jan. 20, 2017.
“Nothing anyone has predicted has happened,” Moore said of the 2016 election when he was a guest Wednesday evening on the “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” “The opposite has happened.”
Moore continued with what he called his “prediction”: “[Trump] is not president of the United States yet. He’s not president, right? He’s not president ’til noon on Jan. 20 of 2017. That is – what are we, Wednesday the 9th? – so that’s more than six weeks away. … So is it possible, that within the next six weeks, something else might happen? Something crazy. Something that we’re not expecting.”
Moore did not elaborate on what that “something crazy” might be.
However, he did say the Electoral College was a “stopgap” measure to keep a “madman who wants to be king” out of the White House. He vowed to “lead the charge” in abolishing the Electoral College.
Watch Moore’s comments:
“Here’s the Democrats’ biggest problem, and this includes people who voted for Hillary: they don’t act like they won. They won. She’s 2.7 million votes ahead of Trump tonight – almost 3 million, almost as many votes as Obama got in 2012. This is the second time this has happened in 16 years. It happened with [Al] Gore where they win the popular vote but lose the White House. We have to get rid of this Electoral College. Yes, it’s going to happen. I will lead the charge. … The majority of my fellow Americans do not want [Trump] in the White House.”
WND reported on Oct. 25, just two weeks before the election, when Moore made the stunningly accurate prediction that Trump would win his race for the presidency and America would deliver the “biggest F— you’ ever recorded in human history.”
Moore even correctly predicted the Rust Belt – Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania – would vote for Trump.
He told Meyers, “I never wanted to be more wrong. … It didn’t seem possible. [Hillary] was ahead in the polls. She was winning the debates. It was a great convention. And he’s crazy.”
After his spot-on prediction, Moore said people have been asking him to choose numbers for their lottery tickets.

On Wednesday, WND reported when Moore called for activists to “disrupt” Trump’s inauguration, citing Hillary Clinton’s 2.7 million popular vote lead and linking to the website of #DisruptJ20, a group of leftist activists plotting to “shut down” the event, forcing Trump to take his oath of office “behind closed doors” – “if Trump is to be inaugurated at all.”
The group, known as the D.C. Counter-Inaugural Welcoming Committee, or #DisruptJ20, says it calls on “all people of conscience to shut down the ceremonies.”
It continues, “If Trump is inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors, showing the world that the vast majority of people in the U.S. do not support his presidency or consent to his rule.”
Lacy MacAuley, a spokeswoman for #DisruptJ20, told WND the group is anticipating a “massive presence in Washington, D.C., during the inauguration.”
“We cannot yet say how significant this disruption will be,” she said. “We are creating a framework to support mass protests and direct action to shut down the inauguration of Donald Trump.”
WND asked MacAuley why members of law enforcement and media are not welcome at the community meetings and if the group is planning disruption activities that will break the law and cause protesters to be arrested.
“I can safely say that some groups are likely planning actions that might result in arrest scenarios,” she said. “Sorry, I cannot give specifics at this time, due mostly to the fact that plans are still in flux, but also due to the fact that not all information is public.”
As for the ban on police and reporters at meetings, MacAuley explained: “Our meetings are safe zones in which people want to speak freely without knowing that a police officer is listening, or thinking that they could be quoted in the press. This is especially important when Trump and Trump-affiliated people threaten intermittently to violate our freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of expression.”
In its call to action, #DisruptJ20 declares:
Trump stands for tyranny, greed, and misogyny. He is the champion of neo-nazis and white Nationalists, of the police who kill the Black, Brown and poor on a daily basis, of racist border agents and sadistic prison guards, of the FBI and NSA who tap your phone and read your email.
He is the harbinger of even more climate catastrophe, deportation, discrimination, and endless war. He continues to deny the existence of climate change, in spite of all the evidence, putting the future of the whole human race at stake. The KKK, Vladimir Putin, Golden Dawn, and the Islamic State all cheered his victory. If we let his inauguration go unchallenged, we are opening the door to the future they envision.
