In an interview this weekend to promote his latest film,Michael Moore in TrumpLand, the liberal documentary filmmaker says that anyone voting for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is a “legal terrorist” who wants to “blow up the old way,” and contends that Americans need to be protected from Trump as if he were a pedophile.
Moore told Rolling Stone on Friday that those disaffected with Washington and the political system in America have a unique opportunity to “blow up” that system on November 8, but he urged those people to think of the “damage” they could do by being a “legal terrorist.”
“You get to get back at the system now and blow it up and this is the only day you can do it legally,” Moore told the outlet of the act of voting for Trump. “He’s told everybody that’s what he’s going to do. He’s the outsider who is going to ride into town and blow up the old way. So you, as a voter, get to participate in the detonation. He’s going to get a lot of votes from people who actually just want to sit back and watch the thing blow up.”
Moore adds that he does not want to “pick on” Trump anymore, because, he says, the candidate has a “mental illness” and he would like for him to “get help.”
