Michael Moore Warns Trump Victory Would Be 'Biggest F--- You Ever Recorded'

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Hollywood filmmaker Michael Moore is doubling down on his criticism of Donald Trump supporters - sort of.

Moore - in a newly-leaked audio recording - says a potential Trump victory on Nov. 8 will be the "biggest f--- you ever recorded in human history". (Warning: audio contains explicit language)

The audio recording went viral on the heels of an interview with Rolling Stone in which Moore described Trump voters as "legal terrorists".

In the undated Ohio speech, Moore referenced a speech Trump delivered in August to economic leaders in Detroit outlining his economic plan.

"Donald Trump came to the Detroit Economic Club and stood there in front of Ford Motor executives and said, 'If you close these factories as you're planning to do in Detroit and build them in Mexico, I'm going to put a 35 percent tariff on those cars when you send them back and nobody's going to buy them'," said Moore.

"It was an amazing thing to see. No politician, Republican or Democrat, had ever said anything like that to these executives, and it was music to the ears of people in Michigan and Ohio and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin - the 'Brexit' states," Moore added.

The "Bowling For Columbine" filmmaker - who recently released the documentary "Michael Moore in TrumpLand" - concluded the speech by warning that "Trump's election is going to be the biggest 'f--- you' ever recorded in human history and it will feel good."

In July, the famously liberal Moore - who initially supported Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary before throwing his support behind Clinton - stoked similar controversy during an appearance on HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher" when he predicted a Trump victory in November.
