After predicting Donald TrumpDonald TrumpEx-CIA analyst resigns rather than serve Trump administration Matt Schlapp op-ed: Challenges, controversy won't stop CPAC 2017 Anti-Trump protests swell outside Parliament during debate on official visit MORE would win the presidency, documentary filmmaker Michael Moore speculated as to whether Trump will make it to the Oval Office.
Moore described the unpredictable nature of the election, telling Meyers that anything could happen between now and the inauguration on Jan. 20, 2017.
"So is it possible, within the next six weeks, that something else might happen? Something crazy? Something that we’re not expecting?" Moore asked.
Without specifying what that "something crazy" might be, Moore described the Electoral College as a "stopgap" meant to keep a "madman who wants to be king" from becoming president.
Moore, a staunch opponent of Trump, made waves in July with a post on his website that predicted Trump would win the presidency. He also correctly predicted the Rust Belt — Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — would turn red for Trump.
“I never wanted to be more wrong,” Moore said Wednesday night.
While Moore's prediction that Trump would win now looks prescient, his new prediction looks far more unlikely. Efforts among the self-proclaimed "Hamilton Electors" to convince Republican electors to defect from Trump have so far fizzled.

“The majority of our fellow Americans do not want him in the White House,” Moore said. “The irony is unbearable.”
As a result, Moore said he would "lead the charge" in abolishing the Electoral College.
