    • Michael Moore Predicts Electoral College Will Deny Trump the Presidency, Gives Hope For Humanity

Now, he's back with another prediction that many will take pleasure in. In a recent interview on Late Night With Seth Meyers, the documentary filmmaker spoke about his belief that something could prevent Trump from assuming the presidency. For example, right now two Democratic electoral college members are trying to sway Republican members to change their votes in what is being referred to as a "hail Mary" move.

      It would be the final question Brooke Miranda Hughes would hear before a tractor-trailer plowed into the back of her car as it crawled down Interstate 380 in Pennsylvania just after midnight Tuesday. Chaniya Morrison-Toomey, the passenger who posed the question, was referring to Facebook Live, which Hughes had just launched to broadcast live from her moving vehicle, according to the Scranton Times-Tribune. The final moments of their young lives — marked by a flash of lights, screeching tires and then seven minutes of blackness — were captured on the live-streamed video after Hughes, sitting behind the wheel, held her phone near her face for the rest of the world to see. Hughes, 18, and Morrison-Toomey, 19, were declared dead at the scene.
