Read Michael Moore's eerily accurate prediction of Donald Trump's victory

While much of America sat back, relaxed, and waited for Hillary Clinton to seize victory in Tuesday's election, filmmaker Michael Moore was having some doubts. Weeks before Election Day, Moore not only predicted "this wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full-time sociopath is going to be our president," he also hit the nail on the head on just how exactly Trump would win.

Moore credited "Midwest Math, or Welcome to Our Rust Belt Brexit," predicting Trump would reach the magic number of electoral votes by sweeping states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. He did. Moore also pointed to the "last stand of the angry white man" and "the depressed Sanders vote." And while Moore said, personally, he does "actually like" Hillary Clinton, he knew that "nearly 70 percent of all voters think she is untrustworthy and dishonest" and, damningly, representative of "the old way of politics."

Last but not least, Moore listed the "Jesse Ventura Effect." While the anger seething in America caught many off guard, Moore already knew that because of "the anger that so many have toward a broken political system, millions are going to vote for Trump not because they agree with him, not because they like his bigotry or ego, but just because they can."
