He correctly forecast for Donald Trump to win the U.S. election, and now documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is predicting that the presidency will end with impeachment or resignation.
“Here’s what’s going to happen, this is why we’re not going to have to suffer through four years of Donald J. Trump, because he has no ideology except the ideology of Donald J. Trump,” Moore said Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“And when you have a narcissist like that, who’s so narcissistic where it’s all about him, he will, maybe unintentionally, break laws. He will break laws because he’s only thinking about what’s best for him.”

In a blog for The Huffington Post in July, Moore outlined five reasons why he believed Trump would win the presidential race — and he was right.
“We are going to resist, we are going to oppose,” he told MSNBC. “This is going to be a massive resistance. Women are calling for a million-woman march on the Inauguration Day, and there is going to be the largest demonstration ever on Inauguration Day.”
On Saturday, he entered Trump Tower in New York City with a camera crew and asked to see the president-elect.
"I just thought I'd see if I could get into Trump Tower and ride the famous escalator," said Moore, who did just that until he reached the fourth floor and the Secret Service told him he could go no higher.
Moore is not alone in his prediction that Trump will not last the full four years as U.S. president.

Allan Lichtman, a history professor at American University who has now correctly forecast nine consecutive presidential election results based on a model he created, is predicting that Trump will be impeached by the Republican Congress.
"They don't want Trump as president, because they can't control him. He's unpredictable," he told The Washington Post. "They'd love to have Pence — an absolutely down-the-line, conservative, controllable Republican. And I'm quite certain Trump will give someone grounds for impeachment, either by doing something that endangers national security or because it helps his pocketbook."
New York Times columnist David Brooks also wrote that "the guy will probably resign or be impeached within a year."
