Flint native Michael Moore says he feels really good about President-Elect Joe Biden's win in Michigan but expressed concern that Donald Trump may not be dealing with reality.

The 'Roger and Me' creator appeared on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert' to discuss Michigan's flip back to a Democratic state in the 2020 presidential election.

"He's already pulled it out," Moore said with a laugh, referring to Joe Biden's victory in Michigan. "We all feel great about that, but what we are on guard for is the fact that Trump is once again not dealing with reality and I never take anything for granted when it comes to him, what he can pull off, what he's up to, who he's firing, who he's replacing."

Moore said he feels that people are nervous about what's in store during the time leading up to the inauguration in January.

When asked how he feels about Michigan's Electoral College votes going to Biden after giving the nod to Donald Trump in 2016, Moore responded, "Really good," which struck a chord with Colbert.

"Let me write that down," the host quipped. "Michael Moore said, 'Really good,' that's very rare."

Moore went on to say that cities with a large Black population such as Detroit, Flint, and Pontiac, were largely ignored by Democrats in 2016, therefore granting a win in Michigan for the Republicans. By contrast, voter turnout in those cities was much bigger this time.

"There's about 83 counties in Michigan. Biden won 11 of them, that's it," he said. "Up the I-75 corridor, all these majority Black cities came out in huge numbers."
