Michael Moore Offers Assistance to Iran: Let Me Help Remove Trump
Liberal filmmaker sends direct message to Iranian leader, vowing to 'fix this'
Far-left filmmaker Michael Moore has offered his personal assistance to Iran's leader, requesting that the Iranian regime "let me & millions of Americans" help remove President Donald Trump from office "peacefully."
Moore begged Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei not to respond with violence to the drone strike that killed the country’s terror chief Major General Qasem Soleimani.
The radical documentary maker vowed that he and "millions of Americans" will "fix this" by getting rid of President Trump at the ballot box in November.
Soleimani and at least three other anti-American militiamen were killed by a US drone strike at Baghdad International Airport in Iraq last week.
Ayatollah responded to the death of terrorist Soleimani by pledging “harsh vengeance” against the United States and Trump, raising fears of a potential war between the two countries.
Addressing his listeners and the Iranian people during an "Emergency Podcast," Moore said that although he does not favor theocratic regimes, he sympathizes with Iran because of the way they have been treated by the United States.
“I would like to ask you, as much as you have the right to and as much as you want to, I would like you, the leadership of the country of Iran, to not respond with violence to the United States,” Moore said.
Taking to Twitter, Moore notified his followers, “I have just sent the Ayatollah of Iran a personal appeal asking him not to respond to our assassination of his top General with violence of any kind, but rather let me & millions of Americans fix this peacefully.”

Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei promised to enact revenge against the American “criminals” who killed Qasem Soleimani on President Donald Trump’s orders, according to the Daily Caller.
Soleimani was believed to plotting more operations against U.S. forces stationed in Iraq following the storming of the American embassy in Baghdad last week.
The ayatollah said the although the loss of the general is a grievous one for Iran, his death will only increase their motivation to fight the United States and Israel, Reuters reported Thursday.
Khamenei said Iran will honor Soleimani with three days of mourning and announced that the late general’s deputy, Brigadier General Esmail Ghaani, will replace him as Quds Force commander.
The terrorist cell’s objectives “will be unchanged from the time of his predecessor,” Khamenei said in a statement reported by Reuters.
On Saturday, President Donald Trump issued a stern warning to Iranian leaders that if the country attempts any sort of revenge attack in response to Soleimani’s death, the United States will target 52 areas of opportunities in Iran, including historical sites.
Trump said he chose the figure 52 because that is the number of hostages that Iranian militants took hostage over 40 years ago at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran.
In a responsive tweet, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told Trump that “targeting cultural sites is a war crime.”
He said that the “end of U.S. malign presence in West Asia has begun.”
Moore, who is a rabid supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, appears to have developed newfound confidence that Trump will be voted out of office in November.
Just last month, he predicted that Trump would win reelection for similar reasons that he famously foresaw his victory in 2016.
“The problem is, is that he will — if the vote were today, I believe, he would win the electoral states that he would need, because, living out there, I will tell you, his level of support has not gone down one inch,” he said during an interview on Democracy Now!.
