Michael Moore is urging President TrumpDonald John TrumpThe Guardian slams Trump over comments about assault on reporter Five takeaways from the first North Dakota Senate debate Watchdog org: Tillerson used million in taxpayer funds to fly throughout US MORE’s opponents to “rise up” and put their “bodies on the line” in order to stop the commander in chief.

“When are people going to get off the couch? And when are we going to rise up? Trump is not going to leave,” Moore said during a Thursday appearance on CBS’s “The Late Show.”

“He plans to be reelected. He loves the term, ‘president for life,’” Moore told host Stephen Colbert, while promoting his upcoming documentary about Trump’s political rise, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” due out in September.


“The only way we’re going to stop this is eventually we’re all going to have to put our bodies on the line. You’re going to have to be willing to do this,” added Moore, a fierce critic of the president who last year performed a one-man, anti-Trump Broadway show.

When asked by Colbert about calls for civility after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was booted from a Virginia restaurant last week because of her work for Trump, Moore blasted his own party.

“The calls that are coming from the uncivil, asking Democrats who are usually so wimpy and weak,” Moore said, before speaking in a meek, whimpering tone, "‘No, it’s OK, we’ll take half of universal health care. We don’t need the whole thing,’ That’s how our side sounds all the time.”

“We’re constantly giving in. And then a few people want to stand up and say, ‘No, I’ve had enough.’”

The 64-year-old “Bowling for Columbine” director emphasized he wasn’t advocating for violence: “We don’t have to be violent. We have to remain nonviolent. The worst that’s going to happen to anybody in the Trump administration is that they don’t get to have a chicken dinner in Virginia?”

“Seriously, if it was just that we had these differences — I don’t think it’s right to throw Sarah Sanders out of the restaurant because I disagree with her politically," the Academy Award winner said. "If I see her going to my movie I’m not going to say, ‘You can’t see my movie.’ But we’re not talking about political differences — we’re talking about children being kidnapped from their parents and put in jails.”

Referring to the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy that separated migrant children from their families at the Texas border, Moore said to applause, “When I see those children down in Brownsville, I don’t see them as somebody else’s children, I see them as my children. Those are my children.”

Moore told Colbert that for him, tearing up every day while reading the news has “become the norm.”
