Michael Moore goes on unhinged rant, claims ‘Trump will be president for life’

This might fairly be called another misguided liberal prediction, except that the speaker is Michael Moore, a man who doesn’t make predictions, preferring instead to invent facts about how things are and then display his musings on a big screen.

Moore made the bizarre comment during an interview with the Huff Post in which he warned readers that they need to take action to prevent Donald Trump from being “the last President of the United States.”

Moore has been engaged in interviews to promote his new film “Fahrenheit 11/9,” his latest effort to cut and paste events and comments to portray the president as what he describes as an “evil genius”:

He has no intention of leaving the White House. Whenever he hears that another country has a president for life, he perks up and thinks, ‘I like the sound of that!’

As an antidote, Moore encourages radical behavior from his side of the aisle. No longer content to hope things work out for the best, Moore laments (obscenities redacted):

F*ck hope. Seriously, f*ck hope. F*ck despair, too. But f*ck hope.

Hope is passive. Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work. Hope leads people to believe that tax returns, or a pee tape, or the FBI or an adult film star will save the country. Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with. It’s the lazy way out.

We don’t need hope. We need action.

Oddly enough, it was just last year that Moore was touting his new Broadway show as being about “hope” and a means for “self-hating liberals” to heal and feel energized in the fight against President Trump.

Moore goes on to suggest that a revolution is brewing to help bring Trump down.

The revolution is happening in the most unlikely of places. The resistance ― the true resistance ― is not coming from the Democratic Party or from the liberal establishment. I can’t reveal too much right now, but there is a real insurgency taking place.

The closest Moore has come to being part of an insurgency is when he infiltrates the buffet line, but I digress.

Several weeks ago, Moore was also encouraging people to fight the resistance by getting their lazy butts off the couch.

“Get off the couch,” “rise up,” and “put our bodies on the line,” he implored the resistance, unaware that he’s done none of those things in recent memory.

It’s highly likely that Moore’s calls to arms will amount to much. His previous attempt to spark outrage among the anti-Trumpers was his Broadway show, “The Terms of My Surrender,” which was billed as a one-man attempt to bring down the president. Instead, it was widely panned even by normally friendly media outlets.

Trump certainly won’t be a president for life, but Moore’s own words reveal that they won’t stop him in 2020 either – he will be re-elected.

“I should say re-appointed, because we will have an even larger population that will vote against him in 2020,” Moore told Fast Company. “But he will win those electoral states as it stands now.”
