Filmmaker Michael Moore says he wants people to be “protesting, obstructing, disrupting,” and engaging in “civil disobedience” on inauguration day to fight against what he perceives as Donald Trump’s illegitimate win. “I mean, the man has no right to enter that house,” he stated.
He said people should be protesting during the Electoral College meetings at each state’s capitols. “We have to fight all the way to inauguration day,” he told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Sunday, “And then be ready for them to start the day after the inauguration passing law after law after law.”
MICHAEL MOORE: Listen, we are hours away now from the Electoral College coming together on Monday. This needs protest, this needs people’s voices. You can go to Vigils For America, I think it’s dot org, and they have a list of all the state protests at the state capitols this weekend and on Monday.
People need to have their voice heard. Don’t say to yourself, oh, what’s the use? How do we — nothing’s going to happen. You don’t know that. You don’t know that. That’s why we have to keep fighting. We have to fight all the way to inauguration day and then be ready for them to start the day after the inauguration passing law after law after law.
CHRIS HAYES, MSNBC: And you think protesting on Inauguration Day —
Protesting, obstructing, disrupting, civil disobedience. I mean, the man has no right to enter that house. There are too many questions about whatever collusion was going on. I mean, they admitted that they were in touch with the Russians during the campaign. They have said that.
MOORE: So we would need to know as Americans what the hell was going on there and he does not have a mandate. He does not have a mandate. And that just needs to be said over and over and over again. And the media, for God’s sake, please do your job.
HAYES: We try.
MOORE: You’re not trying hard enough, Chris.
