Uh oh. Briarcliff Ent. has unveiled the first trailer for the new documentary by Michael Moore, titled simply Fahrenheit 11/9, a spin on the title of his Oscar-winning documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 released in 2004. He later introduces Trump as "the last president of the United States" as a shot of Trump flashing a menacing glance at the camera appears onscreen. The scene in which an incensed Moore sprays water from Flint onto the home of MI governor Rick Snyder stands out in particular, made all the more meaningful as Moore himself is a Flint native.
Additionally, the film will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival first next month, before the wider release date of September 21. "That all ends with this movie".
And you don't need a Michael Moore documentary to tell you that; American social and political division is apparent on the nation's news channels which, in unison, have become a cacophany of opinion, spin and argument. This puts us all in grave danger.More news: Perseid meteor shower peaks this weekend - here’s how to watch
Moore has previously said Trump will win the next presidential election in 2020 but speaking to chat show host Bill Maher in June, he said: "I'm finishing my movie and getting it out before the midterms because I want millions of people to get to the polls".
He emphasizes that having "hope" alone is passive, saying our nation should not rely on this to solve our problems. Moore won the Academy Award for best documentary for his 2002 film "Bowling for Columbine". November 9th was, of course, the day the Associated Press called the election for Trump. "Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work".
The trailer for "Fahrenheit 11/9" is fairly unfocused, but it seems to be pulling the usual leftist talking points: Trump is a dictator, his supporters are racist, America is not the greatest country in the world, pigs will soon fly, blah, blah, blah.
