Over the past two years, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore has repeatedly targeted and taunted President Trump, participated in anti-Trump events, and even called for his impeachment.
However, following the FBI raid Monday of the offices belonging to Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney, Moore posted a long letter to Trump on Facebook Tuesday morning, challenging the president to FIRE special counsel Robert Mueller… NOW.
“I know you and I have had our differences, but I want to talk to you this morning, if not as friends, then as fellow Americans who oppose any abuse of our great constitution,” Moore wrote.
“Look, sir, you and I don’t agree on much. But on this one issue, we must see eye to eye: No federal law enforcement officer has the right to barge in and steal privileged documents from your own lawyer!” he added.
“Time to grow a pair, Mr. President. BE A MAN! Fire Mueller, Sessions, Rosenstein in the next half-hour! It will feel good! It must be done! OFF WITH THEIR HEADS! LEAD!!! ACT!! NOW!!” Moore challenged. (Read his complete letter to the president below.)
President Trump! You let Mueller get away with breaking into your lawyer’s office!! Mueller & Sessions & Rosenstein are laughing at you! I got up early to write u ‘cause I knew you’d be watching “FOX and Friends.” Put down your Egg McMuffin & fire Mueller! https://t.co/MkC7h38Dsz

Below is Moore’s complete letter, which he shared on his Facebook page:
Dear President Trump:
I got up early ’cause I know you’re already up and watching “FOX and Friends” (how do they look so fresh and alive this time of the morning?!). I know you and I have had our differences, but I want to talk to you this morning, if not as friends, then as fellow Americans who oppose any abuse of our great constitution.
Mr. President, it’s now been nearly 24 hours since the renegade prosecutor Robert Mueller illegally raided the offices of your PERSONAL lawyer, Michael Cohen — the PERSONAL LAWYER of the President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief, the Leader of the Free World! — and you have just sat by and done nothing. Nothing! I can’t believe it. I am sitting here in stunned disbelief that you are letting them get away with this!
Look, sir, you and I don’t agree on much. But on this one issue, we must see eye to eye: No federal law enforcement officer has the right to barge in and steal privileged documents from your own lawyer! In America we consider few things as sacred and sacrosanct as the lawyer-client privilege and relationship. Do you realize that NO American president has EVER been subjected to such a search? NEVER! YOU are the first to whom this has happened — and THEY think they can get away with it! YOU MUST NOT LET THIS HAPPEN!
Why are you sitting silent, eating your Egg McMuffin in front of the TV right now and just TAKING this? YOU MUST FIRE MUELLER NOW! Pick up the phone, call Jeff Sessions, and tell that little gnome of a weasel to fire this loose cannon lawbreaker right now. And after Sessions fires Mueller, please fire Sessions and his assistant, Rod Rosenstein, neither of whom have served you well. You have the power, you have the authority, they work for you and I can’t believe you’re going to just let them show up to work this morning and walk into the JustIce Department building as if they’re in charge and not YOU! Madness! Stop being a wuss and clean house! Pick up the phone to downstairs and tell Stephen Miller to eliminate the whole rotten lot of them!
If they had suspected that Michael Cohen was a Russian agent, or was in the act of committing a crime — ok, I get it, they would have had to do their job. But to break in to to the PRESIDENT’S lawyer’s office over a check he wrote to a beloved porn star who was just a friend of yours — I’m sorry, that’s a bridge too far! The American people will not stand for this!
Time to grow a pair, Mr. President. BE A MAN! Fire Mueller, Sessions, Rosenstein in the next half-hour! It will feel good! It must be done! OFF WITH THEIR HEADS! LEAD!!! ACT!! NOW!!
Yours for America,
Attorney–client privilege is dead!

You are correct Mr. President! Why haven’t you fired Mueller? What are you waiting for? YOU LOOK WEAK! It looks like Mueller owns you. I can’t believe you’re putting up w/ this! I thought u were a strong man. Americans want a strongman in the White House! https://t.co/MkC7h38Dsz https://t.co/fkNOLZwai0
