What the rock band Rage Against the Machine saw as a joke seventeen years ago has turned into reality.
Giving the band real Nostradamus street cred, their 2000 video shoot for “Sleep Now in the Fire” foresaw Donald Trump’s run for president — that the video was directed by Michael Moore and filmed on Wall Street makes it that much better.
At the 1:04-minute mark of the video, a man appears holding a sign that says “Donald J. Trump for President.”
Rage guitarist Tom Morello explained in an interview with the New York Post that it might have been Moore’s idea.
“I think it was either Michael Moore’s idea or one of his staffers,” he said. “It wasn’t a warning, it was just meant as a joke — pure humor. But it turned out to be Nostradamus-like.”
The rotund filmmaker must lie awake at night wondering if he was the one who planted the seed in Trump’s head.

Morello now plays in the super-group Prophets of Rage and the band kicked off their 2016 North American tour, aptly titled “Make America Rage Again,” at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
A nifty hat borrowing from Trump’s campaign tag line, “Make America Great Again,” was crafted with the name of the tour emblazoned on it.

But a cynical Morella is no fan of either major political party in America.
“Money rules everything,” he told The Post. “Democrats, Republicans — all of them sold out and are beholden to corporate interests. Period.”
