Donald Trump’s candidacy means that “white privilege” and “racism” are on the ballot on Nov. 8, and supporters of Bernie Sanders need to turn up for Hillary to “save her from herself” and stop Trump’s “legal terrorist” voter base from blowing up the country, according to Michael Moore, who sat down with Rolling Stone magazine recently for a chat about the election.

The left-wing documentary filmmaker — who is promoting an anti-Trump documentary called “Michael Moore in Trumpland” and who backed the socialist senator from Vermont in his primary contest against Hillary Clinton — made his case for the former secretary of state in the interview published Friday.

“We’re not being asked to vote for Margaret Thatcher or Sandra Day O’Connor or Clarence Thomas. We’re being asked to vote for Hillary Clinton and that’s a good thing. Really,” he said. “She’s not any of those people. Do we have our problems? Yes. Do we have our disagreements with her? Yes. She is not exciting the base to get out and vote for her. So we, the Bernie revolution, have to help save her from herself. We know how to do this.”

Mr. Moore went on to point to Mr. Sanders’ 22-state win as a “historic moment” for the Left that portends a larger political shift in favor of socialism, but one that “will only get better and they will remember us as the ones who almost made it happen.”

“We almost got to see the billionaire versus the socialist in this campaign.”

Mr. Moore also made his case for Mrs. Clinton by saying Mr. Trump was simply unfit for the office by virtue of some sort of mental illness.

“[H]e’s not a well person and he needs help. And once you realize that he has a mental illness, at that point, if you’re a human being with a soul and a conscience, you want him to get help.”
