Donald Trump’s supporters view the Republican presidential nominee as a “human Molotov cocktail” they can throw into a political system that has left them behind, filmmaker Michael Moore said Sunday. 

{mosads}”Across the Midwest, across the Rustbelt, I understand why a lot of people are angry. And they see Donald Trump as their human Molotov cocktail that they get to go into the voting booth on Nov 8. and throw him into our political system,” Moore said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” 

“I think they love the idea of blowing up the system,” he said. 

Moore, a supporter of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, said her campaign needs to keep its “game face” on to defeat Trump. 

“Trump is not just comedy to me. I think that people see that he is maybe their messenger,” he said. 

He went on to criticize people who look down on millennial voters. 

“The last thing you want to do is wag your finger, your adult finger, at these millennials,” Moore said. 

“They’re upset about the whole thing. They’re upset about the world that’s been handed to them.”
