Provocative documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has declared Donald Trump will become the Unites States' next president for five reasons, not the least of which is because rabid Americans will be the ones coming out to vote.
"This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full-time sociopath is going to be our next president," he has written on his blog.
"... It is happening. And if you believe Hillary Clinton is going to beat Trump with facts and smarts and logic, then you obviously missed the past year of 56 primaries and caucuses where 16 Republican candidates tried that and every kitchen sink they could throw at Trump and nothing could stop his juggernaut.
"... Who is going to have the most motivated, most inspired voters show up to vote? You know the answer to this question.
"Who's the candidate with the most rabid supporters? Whose crazed fans are going to be up at 5 AM on Election Day, kicking ass all day long, all the way until the last polling place has closed, making sure every Tom, Dick and Harry (and Bob and Joe and Billy Bob and Billy Joe and Billy Bob Joe) has cast his ballot? That's right.
"That's the high level of danger we're in. And don't fool yourself – no amount of compelling Hillary TV ads, or out-facting him in the debates or Libertarians siphoning votes away from Trump is going to stop his mojo."
Moore became world famous for his 2002 documentary Bowling for Columbine on the issue of gun control but his latest project, Where to Invade Next, has put him at odds with the Democrats' candidate Hillary Clinton, for supporting the original decision to invade Iraq.
Moore is an outspoken political commentator who has made no attempt to disguise that he is a Bernie Sanders' advocate (Mrs Clinton's main Democrat rival), even telling Fairfax Media in April that Mr Sanders was the only one who could stop Mr Trump's stampede towards the White House.
Taking this a step further in his blog, it seems "The Hillary Problem" and the "Depressed Sanders Vote" will contribute a large part to Mr Trump's ascension.
"I actually like Hillary – a lot – and I think she has been given a bad rap she doesn't deserve. But her vote for the Iraq War made me promise her that I would never vote for her again. To date, I haven't broken that promise. For the sake of preventing a proto-fascist from becoming our commander-in-chief, I'm breaking that promise.
"I sadly believe Clinton will find a way to get us in some kind of military action. She's a hawk, to the right of Obama. But Trump's psycho finger will be on The Button, and that is that. Done and done."
According to Moore, "70 per cent of all voters find Clinton untrustworthy and dishonest", and even though Mr Sanders' supporters will vote for her ,they won't be dragging friends along to ensure she makes office.
"No Democrat, and certainly no independent, is waking up on November 8th excited to run out and vote for Hillary the way they did the day Obama became president or when Bernie was on the primary ballot. The enthusiasm just isn't there."
Mrs Clinton is also hugely unpopular among the middle classes in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, where factories have been left to rust, and Mr Trump is gaining traction over promises to stick it to Ford Motor's Mexican cars or Apple's Chinese-produced iPhones.
According to Moore's number crunching, Mr Trump doesn't need Florida or Colorado or Virginia. Just "the swath of traditional red states from Idaho to Georgia (states that'll never vote for Hillary Clinton), and then he just needs these four rust belt states".
As Moore puts it: "Welcome to Our Rust Belt Brexit."
"What happened in the UK with Brexit is going to happen here. Elmer Gantry [Mr Trump] shows up looking like Boris Johnson and just says whatever shit he can make up to convince the masses that this is their chance! To stick to ALL of them, all who wrecked their American Dream! And now The Outsider, Donald Trump, has arrived to clean house! You don't have to agree with him! You don't even have to like him! He is your personal Molotov cocktail to throw right into the centre of the bastards who did this to you!"
Moore argues it doesn't even take dumb Americans to be responsible for some of the more outrageous elections in the US, as in when a professional wrestler becoming the governor of Minnesota in the '90s, known as "The Jesse Ventura Effect".
"They didn't do this because they're stupid or thought that Jesse Ventura was some sort of statesman or political intellectual," he writes. "They did so just because they could. Minnesota is one of the smartest states in the country.
"It is also filled with people who have a dark sense of humour – and voting for Ventura was their version of a good practical joke on a sick political system. This is going to happen again with Trump."
And his final reasoning for Mrs Clinton's failure to stop Mr Trump comes down to "The Last Stand of the Angry White Man".
"There is a sense that the power has slipped out of their hands, that their way of doing things is no longer how things are done," Moore writes. "This monster, the 'Feminazi', the thing that as Trump says, 'bleeds through her eyes or wherever she bleeds', has conquered us – and now, after having had to endure eight years of a black man telling us what to do, we're supposed to just sit back and take eight years of a woman bossing us around? After that it'll be eight years of the gays in the White House! Then the transgenders!
"You can see where this is going."
But that's not the last of it for Moore, who hopes to get US voters to sit up and pay attention.
"In order to deal with it, I need you first to acknowledge it, and then maybe, just maybe, we can find a way out of the mess we're in.
"... And there is no doubt in my mind that if people could vote from their couch at home on their X-box or PlayStation, Hillary would win in a landslide.
"... This election is going to come down to just one thing – who drags the most people out of the house and gets them to the polls – Trump right now is in the catbird seat."
