The year was 1998, and both Moore and Trump were guests on Roseanne Barr’s short-lived syndicated talk show. As Moore told Meyers, the producer came up to him in the green room before the show and told him Trump was “really nervous” about him being on the show and was threatening to leave before the taping. They asked Moore to try to reason with him and get him to stay.
“So I walk over to him, and I said, ‘Mr. Trump, it’s Michael Moore.’ And I shook his hand, and it’s all clammy.” Before Meyers could ask, Moore added, “I don’t remember the size of the hand.”
