Michael Moore: Trump is 'Encouraging' the Mail Bomber
Liberal filmmaker blasts President rump during MCNBC interview
After a series of prominent liberal figures received fake "pipe bombs" through the mail this week, Michael Moore has accused President Trump of knowingly "encouraging" the mail bomber to take action.
Speaking during an interview on MSNBC's "All In" on Thursday, filmmaker Moore claimed that the president knows his rhetoric will "encourage" people to send "bombs" through the post.
“I think that everybody should stop pretending that Trump doesn’t really know what he’s doing.
"When he says these things he knows exactly what he’s trying to encourage.”

He continued, “Jeff Zucker from CNN made a comment yesterday that he seemed—that Trump seems to lack comprehension over his actions.
"I think he completely comprehends his actions and what he’s doing.
"And how he’s trying to encourage his nationalist people to make sure they get out to the polls on November 6.
"And they’re counting on liberals and Democrats and people on the left to scare easily, to, you know, get all like this and not have the sort of vigor that the other side has.”
Host Chris Hayes said, “I just want to make sure I’m clear what you’re saying, you’re saying you think he knows what he’s doing in terms of rhetoric, encouraging people to take action, like the action of the person who sent the bombs?”
Moore answered, “Yes.”
Moore continued, “He said, I believe on August 9, 2016, that he was saying that the election was going to be rigged and he was calling upon his Second Amendment people to be there.”
He added, “I think he was calling for violence if he lost.
"He probably will not take it very well when he loses on November 6.”
Earlier this week, Left-wing documentary maker Moore warned an audience in Italy this weekend that the United States and other Western states could be in their “last days of democracy,” according to Breitbart.
A reality he blames on the Democratic Party’s failure to abolish the electoral college after the 2000 presidential election.
Moore made the remarks while speaking at the Italy premiere of his new film about the Trump presidency, Fahrenheit 11/9, which was among his worst box office disasters.
Michael Moore was asked to compare the Trump administration with that of George W. Bush.
“We will always, always, always hold George W. Bush responsible for war crimes for invading Iraq, a country that did nothing to us,” said Moore.
“He’s a criminal and I think there’s a reason why he and Cheney stay away from Europe because they’re afraid of being arrested.”
“Bush and Trump both lost the election. Both got the least number of votes. Al Gore won by a half a million votes. Hillary Clinton won by 3 million votes,” he added.
“The left, the Democrats, the liberals after Gore was denied the White House, should have fought to remove that clause of the Constitution that allows the loser to sit in the White House. We should have done that 16 years ago.”
It is not the first time that Moore, who is one of Hollywood’s most prominent anti-Trump activists, has warned that American democracy may be in danger.
Appearing on ABC’s The View last month, Moore suggested that America might not reach 2020 with its democratic institutions intact.
“The honest answer to that is I don’t even know if we’re going to get to 2020 as a democracy,” he said when asked which Democratic candidate he would be supporting. “I don’t know.”
