Michael Moore Predicted Trump's Election, Here's How He Predicts We Can Defeat Him

Director Michael Moore was one of the few liberals who predicted that Donald Trump would win the 2016 election. Now he's predicting how we can stop Trump from winning a second term in 2020.

In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Moore said we can't rely on Democratic Party insiders to win back the White House. We have to rely on ourselves.

"The Democratic Party establishment is going to lead us to more losses," Moore said. "People reading this need to understand that the only people who are going to save us are us. People reading this have to run for office. People reading this have to find someone to run in their district that is going to win. Run an Iraq War veteran who is a good progressive Democrat. Run a woman. Run a beloved government teacher. If you keep listening to the New York Times, if you keep listening to the DNC, we will get the same results. We have got to think way outside the box now. We have to think way way outside the box. Also, please tattoo on your forearm, 'Bush got two terms.' Look at that every day. 'Bush got two terms.'"

And he thinks Trump stands a chance of serving two terms as well.

"I'd say there's a 55% chance of Trump being reelected," Moore added. "Better than half. We will get more popular votes in the next election than we did the last one. Absolutely that I believe, but will he win the same states? As of now, yes."

In case you think he's coming off a bit smug, keep in mind that being right about Trump was the last thing Moore wanted.

"I never wanted to be more wrong about anything in my life," he explained. "I was trying to tell anybody who was connected to the Clinton campaign that she needed to get out to Michigan and Wisconsin. Days before the election, The New York Times said he had a 15 percent chance of winning. Why would you believe anything The New York Times says after that? This is a paper that, like much of the media, has been out of touch. They’re still distracted about all the wrong things about Trump, and they are in many ways contributing to his being in office until January 2025."

But even if that happens, he thinks America's future is still bright. Why?

"Because we are going to end this," he said. "But you may have to scrape the bottom of the barrel I am sad to say. Two-term Trump is called the bottom of the barrel and then the country will respond to that."

Here's hoping Moore's wrong about Trump for once.

Rock icon David Crosby is not one to mince words - even when criticizing himself, which is a recurring theme in the new documentary 'David Crosby: Remember My Name.' And he's just as unapologetically candid when the cameras are off, I learned after chatting with Crosby over the phone to discuss the premiere of the doc, which opens this weekend (July 19) in New York and Los Angeles. So far, the doc has received excellent reviews from critics who find his frankness refreshing in an age when so many public figures are afraid to go off script and drop their filters. "Nobody does that anymore," Crosby told Civilized.

Can we see some ID please?
