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

Fahrenheit 11/9: first trailer for Michael Moore's Trump documentary

Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 11/9 is a provocative and comedic look at the times in which we live. The doc, a sort of sequel to Moore's anti-W film Fahrenheit 9/11 is set to hit theaters September 21, a date chosen by Moore to spread the anti-Trump word before the mid-term elections.

The trailer shows clips of interviews with activists, politicians and former members of Trump's 2016 campaign, including Parkland shooting survivors David Hogg and Emma González, Democratic House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone. He emphasizes that having "hope" alone is passive, saying our nation should not rely on this to solve our problems.

Besides heavily hinting at a dystopian reality here in the United States, just as Fahrenheit 9/11's title did, Moore's new doc switches the titular date to reference Trump's appointment as president.

"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader", Moore said about the documentary.

The documentary will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival and is set for release in U.S. cinemas on 21 September 2018. "Our media has no idea what it is up against".

Moore has spoken out voraciously against Trump for months, encouraging the president's detractors to "put [their] bodies on the line" to stop his policies. Moore won the Academy Award for best documentary for his 2002 film "Bowling for Columbine".

It's the latest offering from Moore aimed directly at the effect of Trump, following on from his filmed one-man talk Michael Moore in TrumpLand and his Broadway show The Terms of My Surrender.

Help is on the way from "the most unlikely of places", Moore said. We don't need hope.

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.
