Michael Moore to Trump: ‘Vacate You Russian Traitor’
Michael Moore called President Trump a “Russian traitor” and refuses to acknowledge his legitimacy as President over Twitter.
The Hill reports:
Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore blasted President Trump on Tuesday, calling the commander in chief a “Russian traitor” while urging him to “vacate” the White House.
“Um, @realDonaldTrump — It’s now noontime in DC & it appears you are still squatting in our Oval Office. I gave u til this morning to leave,” Moore wrote in a tweet.
“What part of ‘vacate you Russian traitor’ don’t you understand? We can do this the easy way (you resign), or the hard way (impeachment),” he added later.
The documentary filmmaker has been a vocal critic of Trump and has repeatedly questioned his connections with Russia.
His latest comments come a day after Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, announced his resignation over his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.
Flynn initially misled White House officials, including Vice President Pence, about the contents of his conversation while denying that he discussed the topic of sanctions, the White House has said.
“I have sincerely apologized to the president and the vice president, and they have accepted my apology,” Flynn wrote in his resignation letter.
Early on Tuesday morning, Moore accused Trump of instructing Flynn to call Russia and offer reassurances after then-President Obama announced new sanctions on Moscow in December.
“Hey @realDonaldTrump-1hr after Obama put sanctions on Russia YOU told Flynn 2 call them & promise em it’ll be OK. Traitor!Resign by morning!” the filmmaker tweeted.
