"Trump's election is going to be the biggest f— you ever recorded in human history and it will feel good," is a line that is circulating out of context, thanks to Trump himself.

Michael Moore is self-distributing his latest film Michael Moore in TrumpLand, in which he tells Ohio residents to vote against Donald Trump.

However, an audio clip has been cleverly edited and is circulating as a pro-Trump title. Trump himself shared the clip on Thursday on his social media platforms: "I agree, Michael Moore- To all Americans, I see you & I hear you. I am your voice."

Moore then released the full clip to clarify the misconception: "I can't keep taking Trump's voters $$. Folks, your leader has deceived u again: 'Michael Moore In TrumpLand' is a funny love poem to Hillary," he tweeted. "Here's the actual end to that scene in my film Michael Moore In TrumpLand, the end Trump doesn't want you to see."

The clip in question is from the end of the film, during which Moore admits his understanding of why people might be inclined to vote for the Republican presidential candidate. "He's saying the things to people who are hurting, and that's why every beaten-down, nameless, forgotten working stiff who used to be part of what was called the middle class loves Trump. He is the human Molotov Cocktail that they've been waiting for; the human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them. ... The dispossessed will walk into the voting booth, be handed a ballot, close the curtain, and take that lever or felt pen or touchscreen and put a big f—ing X in the box by the name of the man who has threatened to upend and overturn the very system that has ruined their lives: Donald J Trump. ... Trump's election is going to be the biggest f—you ever recorded in human history and it will feel good."

However, Moore's speech actually goes on to note that the "feel good" moment will be brief and, like Brexit voters, those who vote for Trump in this way will come to regret their decisions. "You used the ballot as an anger management tool, and now you're f—ed," he says. "When the rightfully angry people of Ohio and Michigan and Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin find out after a few months in office that President Trump wasn't going to do a damn thing for them, it will be too late to do anything about it. But I get it: you wanted to send a message, you had righteous anger, and justifiable anger. Well, message sent. Goodnight America. You've just elected the last president of the United States."

Moore also shared another clip in which he outlines exactly why some men fear Clinton and love Trump. Watch the videos below.
