Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore on Tuesday detailed his five-step strategy for countering President-elect Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for ‘serious case of amnesia’ after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don’t want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE.

“All hands on deck!” Moore wrote on his Facebook page.

“Brush yourself off and let’s get busy because: a.) All hope is not lost; b.) There are more of us than there are of them; and c.) The roadside is littered with the ended careers of self-absorbed, narcissistic politicians whose arrogance led them to do things that caused their early resignation or impeachment. Don’t think that can’t happen here.”

Moore then predicted Trump would be “a lot worse” than many expect before calling on voters to pressure their lawmakers to oppose the president-elect.

“If he/she is a Republican, they will explain why they ‘support the new president,’” he said. "You then must politely tell them you and everyone you know will work to unseat them in 2018 if they don’t act independently from Trump.”

“If your rep is a Democrat, tell him/her you expect them to AGGRESSIVELY fight the Trump agenda — and if they don’t, you will work with others to support a true progressive in the Democratic primary in 2018.”

Moore also urged voters to form their “own rapid response team” to quickly react to Trump and the GOP-led Congress.

The "Fahrenheit 9/11" director then called on those frustrated with Trump to personally protest events surrounding the Jan. 20 inauguration in Washington, D.C.

Moore added Democrats needed fresh leadership after losing to Trump, pointing to Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), a candidate for chairman of the Democratic National Committee, as a good starting point.

“Here’s what the old guard gave us: TWICE in 16 years the Democratic candidate WON the [popular] vote for president but LOST the White House,” he said. "Incredible! This has got to stop!”

“[Ellison] is the future and everyone else is the past,” Moore added. "He will fight to turn this around and, as a son of the Midwest, bring that part of the country back from the dark side.”

Moore concluded that Americans frustrated with establishment politicians could personally run for office against Trump and his allies.

“It’s time to stop carping about politicians and become one. But a different kind of one! We have no choice. We’ve left it to others — yes, Democrats — and they are inept and continual losers. Haven’t you had enough? Run for office, any office!"
