Liberal activist and documentarian Michael Moore called for a "million other people" to come and surround the U.S. Capitol building with him to prevent a Senate vote to confirm President Trump's yet unnamed nominee for the Supreme Court. On Friday's edition of HBO's Real Time, Moore told host Bill Maher if Trump's nominee for Associate Justice is confirmed, "it's over."
"We first have to find ways to stop that vote from happening," Moore said.
"Find ways? What does that mean?" Maher asked.
"Well, I'll join a million other people surrounding the United States Capitol," Moore declared. "I will stand there."
"Bill, let me tell you something. This judge goes through... at least all of our lives it's a right-wing court. That's it. It's over," Moore said.
BILL MAHER: Somebody told me you had a hail mary solution to this Supreme Court pick. You think it's not a done deal?
MICHAEL MOORE: The Senate right now is 51-49. Sadly, McCain, will not be able to vote so it's a 50-49 vote. C'mon. C'mon!
We've got to push it off until after November.
MAHER: I don't trust every Democrat.
MOORE: We have to hold the Democratic seats we have.
Look, 90% of incumbents are always returned, so that -- the Democrats in Montana, North Dakota, West Virginia, they've got to do their job. They'll do their job. Our job is to win Nevada, Arizona, and Tennessee and they can all be won.
MAHER: But the vote's going to take place before that.
MOORE: No. The idea is -- they first -- we first have to find ways to stop that vote from happening.
MAHER: Find ways? What does that mean?
MOORE: Well, I'll join a million other people surrounding the United States Capitol. I will stand there. I will put my -- Bill, let me tell you something. This judge goes through for the rest of -- at least all of our lives it's a right-wing court. That's it. It's over.
