Michael Moore Calls Trump the Last POTUS in ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Documentary



Today Michael Moore is unleashing a followup, of sorts, to that game-changing documentary, which takes on the current Trump administration.

Flint, Michigan's man-made, lead-poisoned water crisis began in 2014 and resulted in strict regulations being enacted at a state level in 2018, with the water's lead levels finally dropping below federal safety levels in 2017.

The release of the trailer was accompanied by an interview with Moore by The Huffington Post where the filmmaker made sure to attack the president.

The trailer includes footage of Trump rallies, neo-Nazi protests, Roger Stone, Parkland shooting survivors, and Moore himself hosing down the gated lawn of MI governor Rick Snyder with water from Flint.

While Trump's election in 2016 is the obvious pivot for the trailer, the documentary appears to explore a broader raft of issues which the United States is tackling. "He has no intention of leaving the White House", Moore told the far-left news outlet.

Michael Moore shook the world up when he released his polarizing documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. It received a 20-minute standing ovation at its Cannes premiere. Moore won the Academy Award for best documentary for his 2002 film "Bowling for Columbine".

On a side note, "Fahrenheit 11/9" is a play on the title of Moore's biggest hit, the anti-Bush documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11".

In the first footage from the film, we see Moore speak to the Parkland student and activist David Hogg and rising Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. "Donald Trump is an evil genius". He hopes this film will "end the madness" that people seem content to let continue.

According to HuffPost, the film "juxtaposes footage of Trump rallies and neo-Nazi protests with images of Moore using Flint water to hose down the MI governor's gated driveway". We don't need hope. "No matter what you throw at him, it hasn't worked", says Moore.

Following Fahrenheit 11/9's TIFF world premiere, the film will debut in the United States on September 21st.
