In the wake of Trump’s major upset victory, Michael Moore (who predicted Trumps win) took to Facebook to make a game plan. He posted a five-point plan to counteract Trump on his personal Facebook page.

The plan is funny enough on its own, so I won’t be adding much commentary afterwards. Below is the full post, but you can find it in its original form here.

Morning After To-Do List:

1. Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably.

2. Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn’t let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on. Those same bloviators will now tell us we must “heal the divide” and “come together.” They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. Turn them off.

3. Any Democratic member of Congress who didn’t wake up this morning ready to fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years must step out of the way and let those of us who know the score lead the way in stopping the meanness and the madness that’s about to begin.

4. Everyone must stop saying they are “stunned” and “shocked.” What you mean to say is that you were in a bubble and weren’t paying attention to your fellow Americans and their despair. YEARS of being neglected by both parties, the anger and the need for revenge against the system only grew. Along came a TV star they liked whose plan was to destroy both parties and tell them all “You’re fired!” Trump’s victory is no surprise. He was never a joke. Treating him as one only strengthened him. He is both a creature and a creation of the media and the media will never own that.

5. You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: “HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!” The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Fact. If you woke up this morning thinking you live in an effed-up country, you don’t. The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump. The only reason he’s president is because of an arcane, insane 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we’ll continue to have presidents we didn’t elect and didn’t want. You live in a country where a majority of its citizens have said they believe there’s climate change, they believe women should be paid the same as men, they want a debt-free college education, they don’t want us invading countries, they want a raise in the minimum wage and they want a single-payer true universal health care system. None of that has changed. We live in a country where the majority agree with the “liberal” position. We just lack the liberal leadership to make that happen (see: #1 above). Let’s try to get this all done by noon today. — Michael Moore

Moore may have been right about the election outcome, but we seriously doubt his game plan. It’s fair to say that his plan is unrealistic in a number of ways, not to mention that you literally can’t stump the trump. Just ask Hillary.

    I didn’t want Hillary as president, Michael Moore. The soft elitist in this country…including you, sir, wanted another four years of the bloated luxury you’ve grown accustomed to. Riding on the fabulously phony Clinton coat tails. I do hope all the shocked and stunned people who think no kid gets left behind and that everyone gets a trophy in life really looks at what this is about. People are tired you, and of all the Lenas and the Katys and the flag burners. Leave the country as you’ve all threatened to do. Please hurry. The rest of us want to rebuild. .

  2. If would have been paying attention for the last 8 years you would know that the republican racist have no blocked anything that looked like it would help the middle class. There hate for President Obama has festered and Trump is the fruit produced. The Republicans resisted every effort the modify the ACHA to make it work better. The republicans have been the party of ” let’s stop Obama at all costs” from the very first day.
    Obama inherited the President Bush unfounded wars and collapsed enconomy and the 2008 market crash and the Republican tried to blame it on President Obama.
