Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore hopes the sequel to his award-winning documentary about the Bush administration could deliver the final blow to Trump. Even though the documentary dubbed Fahrenheit 11/9 may end up as being a necropsy than the real cause of death by the time it reaches the theaters, it could shed light on Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s wrongdoings.
Trump Presidency to End with This Movie
Moore unveiled the new documentary at the Cannes Film Festival where he and producer Harvey Weinstein were selling the movie to global distributors. The last time Weinstein and Moore worked together on a project was in 2004 when they produced Fahrenheit 9/11.
In a recent statement, an exasperated Moore noted that no matter what the media throws at Trump he remains standing. “Facts, reality, brains cannot defeat him,” the documentary maker added.
Even when he commits a self-inflicted wound, [Trump] gets up the next morning and keeps going and tweeting. That all ends with this movie,
Moore’s Other Anti-Trump Film
His original blockbuster movie, Fahrenheit 9/11, which documented how the Bush administration pushed America into the war with Iraq because of the Bush family’s oil interests, earned more than $20 million and was awarded the Palm d’Or at Cannes.
However, Fahrenheit 11/9 is not Moore’s first anti-Trump movie. During the presidential campaign, he released TrumpLand, a documentary filmed in Ohio with genuine Trump voters. In that movie, the filmmaker likened the then-presidential candidate Trump to the Brexit and warned that he might secure most of the Rust Belt states, which he did.
Moore is also very active on social media giving daily inspiration to the resistance:
