Michael Moore: Trump going to ‘get us killed’ while he’s busy fighting ‘Alec Baldwin in a wig’
In a long Facebook post late Monday night titled “Donald Trump Is Gonna’ Get Us Killed,” film director Michael Moore said he believes the president-elect will hurt the U.S. by paying too much attention to twitter feuds and ignoring intelligence briefings.
The liberal documentarian attacked Trump for blowing off a majority of his presidential intelligence briefings, saying the real estate mogul was too distracted by attacking his critics, such as “Saturday Night Live.”
“When the next terrorist attack happens — and it will happen, we all know that — and after the tragedy is over, amidst the death and destruction that might have been prevented, you will see Donald Trump acting quickly to blame everyone but himself,” Moore said.
“When this next terrorist attack takes place, it is YOU who will be charged by the American people with a gross dereliction of duty. It was YOUR job to pay attention, to protect the country. But you were too busy tweeting and defending Putin and appointing cabinet members to dismantle the government,” he added. “While the plot to kill Americans was being hatched, your time was consumed by whom you saw as the real threat to America: Alec Baldwin in a wig.”
Trump told Fox News on Sunday regarding the highly classified daily briefings that he didn’t need “to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years. Could be eight years — but eight years. I don’t need that.”
The president-elect has been a big critic of “SNL” since the election, specifically targeting Baldwin for his Trump impression. Earlier this month, Trump called the show “unwatchable.”
Moore correctly predicted that Trump would win the presidential election and has made a series of predictions about his presidency since, including that Trump won’t finish his first term.
