Michael Moore correctly predicted that Donald Trump would win the election in November and is now predicting that the Electoral College will keep him from entering the White House in January.


“He’s not president of the United States yet,” Moore told Seth Meyers on his show, Late Night with Seth Meyers. “He’s not president ’til noon on January 20th of 2017… that’s more than six weeks away.”

Currently Hillary Clinton is ahead in the popular vote by 2.7 million votes, which constitutes the largest margin between an electoral college winner and loser in U.S. history.

“Would you not agree, regardless of which side of the political fence you’re on, this is been the craziest election year?” he asked. “Nothing anyone predicted has happened – the opposite has happened. So is it possible, just possible, that in these next six weeks, something else might happen – something crazy, something we’re not expecting?”

Moore correctly predicted a Trump win back when he was down in the polls, and everyone else was predicting a Clinton presidency. He explained that he thought Trump would target “the four blue states in the rustbelt of the upper Great Lakes – Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.”

Democrats and anti-Trumpers alike have been theorizing that the electors of the Electoral College were not required to vote for the candidate that won their state. One such elector, Christopher Suprun of Texas, has already pledges not to cast his vote for Trump. He will not give it to Clinton either, and has offered Ohio Governor John Kasich as a viable option.

“Federalist 68 argued that an Electoral College should determine if candidates are qualified, not engaged in demagogy, and independent from foreign influence,” said Suprun. “Mr Trump shows us again and again that he does not meet these standards… I owe no debt to a party. I owe a debt to my children to leave them a nation they can trust.”
