Famed documentarian Michael Moore, who sadly predicted that Trump would win the 2016 election, went on Late Night With Seth Meyers to offer a different prediction – one that we all pray might come true.
Meyers begins the segment by addressing the first prediction Moore made – that Trump was going to win – with Moore saying that he “never wanted to be more wrong. It didn’t seem possible. She was ahead in the polls. She was winning the debates. It was a great convention, and he’s crazy. Ever since then, people have been asking me for my help with their lotto numbers.”
Meyers quips “It’s like you hit the lotto but instead of winning $6 million, you got kicked in the nuts.”
Then they get down to the brass tax, where Moore predicts that the Electoral College is going to deny Trump the presidency. “He’s going to not have a mandate, the majority of our fellow Americans do not want him in the White House, but because of an arcane law from the 1700s to placate the slave states… He’s not president of the United States yet.
“I’d like to make another prediction tonight. He’s not president till noon on January 20th of 2017. . . . 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 predicted has happened; the opposite has happened. So is it possible, just possible, that in these next six weeks, something else might happen — something crazy, something we’re not expecting?”
We can only hope he’s right. After Trump attacked a union leader last night for telling the truth about the Carrier AC handout Trump is trying to pass off as a “deal,” it’s clear that not even everyday Americans are safe from Trump and his rabid fans, While it would be unprecedented and highly unlikely for the necessary 37 electoral college voters to turn faithless and vote against Trump, it still could happen. We can’t lose hope yet.
