Moore appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to spill the beans on his new project
Michael Moore, eh? Doesn’t like that old Trump fella, no siree - not a member of his fan club, that’s a fact. He’s so not a member, that he’s done a whole movie about it - an entire, full-length film all about how he won’t be inviting Donald Trump to his birthday party. Really gone to town on this one, has Moore.
We’ve previously reported on the film here, including the fact that the now-disgraced Roseanne Barr will also be in his sights, but now Moore’s announced the official title: Fahrenheit 11/9, taking the title of one of his previous docs, Fahrenheit 9/11 and substituting in the date that Trump was elected.
He told Colbert:
“Sadly, Trump is not going to leave.
“He plans to be re-elected. He loves the term ‘president for life.’ The only way that we’re going to stop this is eventually we’re all going to have to put our bodies on the line. You’re going to have to be willing to do this.”
Here’s Moore talking about the doc, as well as an exclusive clip (and who doesn’t like an exclusive clip?? Not you!):
Moore also appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher over the weekend, and had another selection box of choice words concerning Trump. He said:
“Fascism is at the doorstep.
“People are afraid to use the word, but I think that we have got to be very serious about this. [Franklin Delano Roosevelt] and [Winston] Churchill defeated fascism. … If they defeated fascism, look what we’ve got. We’ve got a country where the vast majority believe in women’s rights, environmental stuff, don’t put people in jail for using drugs. All of that stuff, the majority are with us. We are the majority. Why don’t we start acting like the majority?
“This is the beauty and the genius of Trump and why you have to step back for a second and admire him the way Patton admired Rommel. That Trump — when he says he’s going to do something, he’s going to do it. And he is relentless…
“They are never going to stop. And we never act like that on any of the things that we say we believe in. They are relentless, they are motherfuckers to the core, and we are like, oh …”
In case you hadn’t noticed, Big Mike is nay a fan of the president, so you’d better expect a searing takedown with this latest doc.
We’ll find out for sure when it hits cinemas on September 21.
