Michael Moore weighed in on the current political climate, suggesting that “wimpy and weak” Democrats need to “rise up” and resist Trump by putting their “bodies on the line.”
Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote his new anti-Trump documentary, the filmmaker whose last documentary accidentally helped Trump win the 2016 election by delivering an unintentionally inspiring speech, said that despite inaction by many of the left “a few people want to stand up and say, I’ve had enough, that’s it.”
Moore, who says he “cries every single day when he watches the news,” initially stressed “We don’t have to be violent, we have to remain non-violent,” only to later ask “When are people going to get off the couch and rise up?” – adding:
“Sadly, Trump is not going to leave … He plans to be re-elected, he loves the term ‘president for life.’ The only way that we’re going to stop this is eventually we’re all going to have to put our bodies on the line. You’re going to have to be willing to do this.”
Moore also defended a Lexington, VA restaurant owner ejecting White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders one week ago.
If it were just basic political differences, Moore said he would not be in favor of throwing Sarah Huckabee Sanders out of a restaurant.
“But that’s not what’s going on now,” he said. “We’re not talking about political differences. We’re talking about thousands of children being kidnapped and put in jails.” –Daily Beast
