Filmmaker Michael Moore issued a to-do list on his Facebook page following the surprising election of Donald Trump as president of the United States, urging people to take over the Democratic Party and "return it to the people."
Moore, a Trump critic who spent months on the campaign trail producing his film "Trumpland," said the Democratic Party had failed its base and that everyone shocked by Trump’s victory was in a bubble and not paying attention to their fellow Americans and "their despair."
"YEARS of being neglected by both parties, the anger and the need for revenge against the system only grew," wrote Moore. "Along came a TV star they liked whose plan was to destroy both parties and tell them all "You're fired!" Trump's victory is no surprise. He was never a joke. Treating him as one only strengthened him."
Trump was nominated as the President-Elect in a tight race, one where many pollsters and analysts predicted a landslide victory for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. But Clinton lost key swing states, including Florida, North Carolina, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. Trump also won Michigan, one he spent considerable time campaigning in with the message that he could bring jobs back to the area.
"They are being manipulated by a con artist," Moore said Tuesday night on Huffington Post of that mantra. "He’s not told them the truth. He’s not going to bring your jobs back. He’s a dying dinosaur. His way of doing things … that’s the old America."
