Michael Moore is an American documentary filmmaker and author. He is the director and producer of Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004), a critical look at the presidency of George W. Bush and the War on Terror, which is the highest-grossing documentary at the American box office of all time and winner of the Palme d’Or. His film Bowling for Columbine (2002), which examines the causes of the Columbine High School massacre, won the Academy Award for Documentary Feature.
He predicted a Donald Trump win in the 2016 elections when it seemed most unlikely. And now he has another prediction that Trump may not go on to serve out his term.

The Oscar-winning director made waves back in July when he predicted that Trump would win, and now he says he takes no pleasure in being right.
“I never wanted to be more wrong,” Moore told Seth Meyers on Wednesday’s “Late Night.” “I remember when I said this on the show, the audience moaned, like ‘no,’ all because it didn’t seem possible. She was ahead in the polls, she was winning the debates, it was a great convention. And he’s crazy.”

Michael Moore, who even correctly named the states that would clinch the election for Trump, joked that people had begun to ask him for the winning lottery numbers.
To which Meyers responded, “It’s like you hit the lotto, but instead of winning $6 million you got kicked in the nuts.”
While he was right before, Moore said he had a new Trump prediction and told the crowd to prepare its moans.
“He’s not president until noon on January 20 of 2017,” Moore said. “So that’s more than six weeks away. Would you not agree, regardless of which side of the political fence you’re on, this has been the craziest election year? Nothing anyone has predicted has happened. The opposite has happened. So is it possible that in these next six weeks something else might happen, something crazy, something we’re not expecting?”

To which Meyers asked, “Do you think it’s possible that he now realizes this job is way more work than he wanted it to be?”
“Oh, he is so bummed out,” Moore said. “He may decide he just wants to quit before he even takes office. Everyone in the audience is saying that’s not possible. Everybody in this audience at some point in their life on the first day of their job knew they had taken the wrong job.”
