Michael Moore: ‘We Have to Put Our Bodies on the Line’ to Stop Donald Trump

Controversial filmmaker, on the late-night circuit, claims illegal immigrant kids are being 'kidnapped' and 'put in jails'

Michael Moore, hardly an impartial individual, appeared to call for violence against the president on Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show” Thursday night.

In usual Moore fashion, the controversial filmmaker seemed to contradict himself when he said critics of President Donald Trump must remain “nonviolent,” but they’ll need to “put [their] bodies on the line” if needed, he added.

“We don’t have to be violent, we have to remain nonviolent, but if the worst that happens to anybody in the Trump administration is that they don’t get to have a chicken dinner in Virginia, I mean, I don’t know,” Moore said. “But that’s not what’s going on now. We’re not talking about political differences. We’re talking about thousands of children being kidnapped and put in jails.”

He continued, “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 went on to say that most Americans are “very liberal.”

Moore should have nothing to complain about right now. The president has given a much-needed jumpstart to the filmmaker’s career. After capitalizing on the George W. Bush presidency with two highly disputed “documentaries,” Moore essentially disappeared during Obama’s eight years in office.

The opportunist could never quite figure out how to criticize a Democrat president — even though Obama took positions that should have angered Moore.

Under Trump, Moore is back in the game. He’s doing his best to be a leader in the so-called resistance, and he’s already released a movie and a Broadway show about the president. He has a new movie about Trump on the way, too.

If anything, Moore should be Trump’s biggest fan.
