Michael Moore, the liberal documentary filmmaker who is a staunch “anti-Trumper,” tweeted a threat Saturday afternoon to start fracking off the coast of Florida, near President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

The new attack came in response to another Twitter user, who sent Moore an article from the New York Times, published Thursday, titled, “Trump moves to open nearly all offshore waters to drilling.”

The Times lamented, “The proposal lifts a ban on such drilling imposed by President Barack Obama near the end of his term and would deal a serious blow to his environmental legacy.”

Twitter user George Polisner tweeted the article to Moore, writing, “I’m waiting for @MMFlint to show up with some massive industrial fracking equipment at Mar-a-Lago. Please Michael? Bring back TV Nation?”

Moore responded with, “We are back on the air in September — in prime time! “Michael Moore LIVE FROM THE APOCALYPSE!” Our fracking off the coast of Mar-a-Lago begins right after Labor Day. I’ve already got the rig — a beautiful Halliburton G-0008 fracking system with a monster Caterpillar engine!”

In a follow-up Twitter post, Moore sent a picture of a drilling rig, and wrote, “Here’s our fracker! We’ll be drilling right off the coast of Mar-a-Lago. God Bless You Donald Trump for making this possible! The oil we drill just off your beach will pay 4 our entire show! And any spills – we’re going to let the ppl of Florida keep whatever they collect 4 free!”
