WATCH: Michael Moore Calls for '100 Days of Resistance' Starting With Donald Trump's Inauguration

Michael Moore, the Academy Award-winning documentarian who correctly predicted that Donald Trump would win the 2016 presidential election, is now urging Trump’s critics to engage in “100 days of resistance” starting at the president-elect’s inauguration.


“Trump gets upset if there’s 10 people outside Trump Tower,” Moore said on MSNBC’s “Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” on Sunday night. “What’s he going to think if there’s 100,000 or 500,000 (at his inauguration)?”

Moore added, “It’s important that everybody go there. This will have an effect. We have to throw everything at this. This man is slightly unhinged, if I can say that, and he’s a malignant narcissist. He’s going to be very upset if there’s a lot of people there.”

The Flint activist also added that he will be “busy busy busy” by leading “100 days of resistance” to Trump’s impending presidency. He will start by attending the women’s march, which he described as a “bold message” to remind the president-elect that “women’s rights are human rights.”

Moore also predicted that Trump would eventually wind up on the wrong side of a scandal.

“When you have a narcissist like that, who’s so narcissistic where it’s all about him, he will, maybe unintentionally, break laws,” Moore told O’Donnell. “He will break laws because he’s only thinking about what’s best for him.”

Although his star flagged somewhat during the Obama years, Moore re-entered the news cycle in a big way when he correctly foresaw that a “Rust Belt Brexit” in Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania would result in Trump’s upset victory over Clinton.

“Add up the electoral votes cast by Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin,” Moore wrote in July. “It’s 64. All Trump needs to do to win is to carry, as he’s expected to do, the swath of traditional red states from Idaho to Georgia (states that’ll never vote for Hillary Clinton), and then he just needs these four rust belt states. He doesn’t need Florida. He doesn’t need Colorado or Virginia. Just Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. And that will put him over the top. This is how it will happen in November.”
