Michael Moore loves to predict the most frightening outcome possible for any given political situation. He correctly warned that Donald Trump would beat Hillary Clinton in 2016, and just days before the 2020 election, he accurately predicted that the current president would far exceed his polls.
Of course, it wasn’t enough to give Trump a second term – despite what he and his minions throw into the void – but that hasn’t stopped the filmmaker from imagining the worst-case scenarios.
When Colbert asked if he thought Biden could ‘take this one off,’ Moore laughed and replied, ‘He’s already taken it off. But if “we all feel good about it,” he added, “what we’re on our guard for is that Trump, once again, doesn’t care about reality. .
“And I never take anything for granted when it comes to him,” he continued. “What he can do, what he does, who he fires, who he replaces, the head of the Defense Department with a guy who stumbled trying to just climb the stairs to the Pentagon.” I think people are rightly nervous about going through the next 69 days.
Colbert did his best to keep Moore positive, making him admit that he felt “really good” to see his home state of Michigan go blue this year after going to Trump in 2016. “Embarrassment of these four last few years, every time I hear Michigan being called a red state, removing the scarlet letter last week was doing me good, I think, among most people I know in Michigan, ”he said. declared.
But before long he was back to reality checking. “Look, over 70 million people voted for Trump, so clearly we know the country we live in, the problems aren’t necessarily going to go away,” Moore said. “Bigotry, misogyny and all that stuff, we’re still going to have to work with people – and maybe their kids will go to school, they’ll read books, and the next generation will be better.
