Michael Moore stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to reminisce about his prediction in August that Trump was going to be elected president of the United States. Oh man I remember reading that at the time and thinking, “Jesus Michael Moore, you’re such a Negative Neil. Hillary is kicking his ass!” Well, that’s I get for being a smug liberal who should have known better. Michael Moore is right about another thing in this clip: nobody is acting like Hillary Clinton won almost 3 million more votes than Donald Trump. I think about this sometimes as I’m scrolling through my Facebook page and see all of the (virtual, digital) rending of garments and gnashing of teeth, all of the petitions and memes explaining how stupid and racist my neighbors in flyover country are. But this slacktivism is just noise, signifying to their friends and neighbors in San Francisco or wherever that they get it man. All this Facebook and Twitter rage that does nothing, ultimately.
Anyway, hey Michael Moore, what is the “crazy thing” that may happen in the next six weeks? Why did you cut it off? Come on Michael Moore, give us the goods!
