Moore to attend Woman’s March in protest of Trump
(INTELLIHUB) — Filmmaker and liberal icon Michael Moore has announced his plans to attend the Women’s March on Washington to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration later this month and has called for sore loser liberals to go further — by staging protests acts of resistance through the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency.
In an appearance, this weekend on MSNBC’s The Last Word, the 62-year-old Trumpland and Fahrenheit 9/11 director made a “call to arms” to those opposed to Trump’s presidency to join the Women’s March on Washington scheduled for January 21, the day after the presidential inauguration.
“It’s important that everybody go there,” Moore told MSNBC’s Ari Melber.
“This will have an effect. We need to throw everything at this. This man is slightly unhinged, if I can say that, and he’s a malignant narcissist. He cares very much about what people think of him. He wants to be the popular guy. And he’s going to be very upset if there’s a lot of people there.”
Moore, who was one of the first liberal political pundits to predict a Trump victory, also urged protesters to “get up off the couch” and to be a part of protests during the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency.
“We are gonna be busy, busy, busy,” Moore said, adding a rallying call to “a hundred days of resistance.”
The political pundit casually chatted about hearing the hair and makeup employees at MSNBC talking about going to the Women’s March backstage before his appearance on the program.
“That’s the new Americana. That’s what’s going to happen. And people are going to be relentless about this, so I’m optimistic,” he enthused.
In the lead up to the 2016 election, Moore labored to persuade voters to vote for former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Just weeks before election day, he released a critical documentary of Trump called Michael Moore in TrumpLand. Interestingly, a portion of the film in which Moore extols Trump’s appeal to Rust Belt voters was subsequently cut from the film and posted on the Internet where it went viral among Trump supporters.
Moore previously called for protesters to “disrupt” Trump’s inauguration on January 20th and even offered to bribe GOP elector’s to do a protest vote.
