Michael Moore to Help Lead Trump Inauguration Protest

"This impending disaster requires everyone to get involved now — all hands on deck! This is not a drill!," filmmaker says of January 20th protest

Michael Moore has vowed to help lead the national protest against Donald Trump when (and if) the President-elect attends his inauguration in Washington, D.C. on January 20th.

In a letter to The Hollywood Reporter, the TrumpLand filmmaker pledged, "If by some awful happenstance Trump shows up to be sworn in on January 20th, I will be there helping lead the national protest and non-violently disrupting the Inauguration of a man no one other than the electoral college elected — and I'll also be doing my own thing as a private citizen (activities I won't disclose now)."

On Wednesday, Moore tweeted a link to the Disrupt the Inauguration protest to his 3.4 million followers. "DC will not be hospitable to the Trump administration," organizers write. "Every corporation must openly declare whether they side with him or with the people who will suffer at his hands. Thousands will converge and demonstrate resistance to the Trump regime."

Moore warned of the aftermath of Trump's inauguration, "I expect the Republicans to call a Saturday session on Jan. 21st and start enacting an assembly line of legislation, passing bills into law by voice vote, and rushing them up Pennsylvania Ave. for Trump's signature. This impending disaster requires everyone to get involved now — all hands on deck! This is not a drill!"

However, the filmmaker isn't entirely convinced that Trump will be inaugurated at all. "If there's one thing we've learned from this election, don't assume anything that's supposed to happen will," he wrote.
