During an interview with the Daily Beast, the filmmaker explained why he made “Michael Moore in TrumpLand” — a film of his one-man stage performance that champions the Democratic nominee.

“I noticed the people that support Hillary were feeling really confident, and I thought that was dangerous,” Moore said. “The more Trump screwed up and the more she won the debates, people just thought more and more that it was in the bag. I didn’t feel that way at all.”

“Ten percent of the Hillary vote got depressed with the FBI announcement,” he continued. “They’re still going to vote for her, but they’re not as enthusiastic, and maybe won’t do the work for her this weekend that they were going to.” (RELATED: Michael Moore Just Declared The Republican Party Dead)

“I watch Celebrity Apprentice,” he said. “It’s a very good show.”

“Trump is a well-liked, very popular TV star. And one thing the Republicans have learned — when they run Ronald Reagan, when they run Arnold Schwarzenegger — when they run stars, they win. Democrats don’t do that. We don’t run Oprah or Tom Hanks or any of a number of other people that would win. I’ve never understood that.”

Moore said his fellow Sanders supporters should rally behind Clinton because she “adopted two-thirds of his platform.”

“It’s amazing,” he said. “So I say to my fellow Bernie supporters, what more do you want? She”s gone more than halfway! And she isn’t Margaret Thatcher. What is your problem? Come on!”

“There should be no anger. There should be joy, because we did something historic. We got a socialist elected in 22 states. Nearly half the states voted for a socialist for president. That is stunning! People shouldn’t be angry—they should be taking a bow. We set the tone of the whole election in terms of income inequality! If the Democrats win the Senate the chairman of the budget committee is a guy named Bernie Sanders! A socialist will be in charge of the budget!” (RELATED: Michael Moore: ‘People Don’t Trust Democrats Anymore’)
