Filmmaker Michael Moore went on “Real Time with Bill Maher” Wednesday night to give the liberal audience a rude awakening: He thinks Donald Trump will win this fall’s presidential election.   

Moore (who starts speaking at 9:53 in the YouTube clip below ) told the show’s panel and the audience that even though the crowd inside the Republican National Convention hall chanting “Guilty” and “Lock her up” about Hillary Clinton might seem crazy to them, but to millions of Americans “this was music to their ears.”   

“One of the things I have been concerned about this week is that … we’ve been sitting in our bubble, having a good laugh,” Moore said to Maher. “I’m sorry to have to be the buzzkill here so early on, but I think Trump is going to win.”  

The crowded then quickly started to boo. But Maher interjected, “Boo if you want, I’m glad you are saying it. Everybody should say that,” Maher said. “The enemy is complacency. Say it everyday.”   

Moore’s 2004 film “Fahrenheit 9/11” is the highest-grossing documentary film in the U.S., according to imdb.com. He won an Academy Award in 2003 for best documentary feature for his film “Bowling for Columbine.”
