Michael Moore Hopes Electoral College Will Reject Trump

Donald Trump still might not become president, especially if “something crazy” takes place, Michael Moore said Wednesday night on “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”

The Hill reported that the filmmaker, referring to this year’s bizarre election campaign, pointed out that “nothing anyone has predicted has happened” and that “the opposite has happened.” He asked: “So is it possible, within the next six weeks (before the inauguration), that something else might happen? Something crazy? Something that we’re not expecting?”

Moore suggested that Electoral College members could thwart Trump’s presidential ambitions when they vote on Dec. 19, by denying him the 270 electoral votes he needs. The documentarian argued that the Electoral College is a “stopgap” created to prevent a “madman who wants to be king” from moving into the White House.

Moore said he would “lead the charge” to get rid of the Electoral College, which has awarded the presidency to the popular-vote loser four times in the nation’s history. Before this year’s election, the last time it had happened was when the Supreme Court declared George W. Bush the winner over Al Gore in 2000. “The majority of our fellow Americans do not want (Trump) in the White House,” Moore said. “The irony is unbearable.”

A group of Democratic college members, the “Hamilton electors,” is encouraging Republican electors to vote for Ohio Gov. John Kasich or another leader of their party rather than the president-elect.
