In time to stir up more divisiveness before the 2018 mid-term elections, Michigan’s own Michael Moore has released his trailer for his latest documentary, Farenheit 11/9.
Bent on seeing Trump impeached and ousted from office–throw the bum out!– the trailer leaves one thinking that Moore has thrown together, yet, another formulaic montage, this one suppose to excite the left and get the right–those who still support the Trump presidency– to dig in deeper.
Does he miss a trick? It seems as though it is all here. This doc features a phantasmagoria of clips from the past few years, including the Flint water crisis, the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, the aftermath of the Parkland massacre complete with student survivors, congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and clips of Trump speaking to his supporters at his rallies, and clips of Trump speaking to his supporters at his rallies and clips of Trump speaking to his supporters at his rallies, are just some of the voices Moore captures in his film.and more.
“How the fuck did this happen?” It seems Moore would have an answer. He predicted that Trump would be president before the 2016 elections. In July 2016 he offered 5 scary reasons why Trump would win. What’s more, he has recently predicted Trump would win again in 2020. That is, unless, something is done.
“I’m finishing my movie and getting it out before the midterms because I want millions of people to get to the polls,” Moore told the Real Time with Bill Maher host. “We’re going to bring Trump down.”
Is this all it takes? Is this the magic panacea–another Michael Moore documentary? Is this all that it takes to motivate the left to vote? Is it possible that we have seen enough of Trump already with all of the daily news coverage we have seen since he has been in office to make it a reality? Or like Trump, if we do see a big Blue Wave sweep in and clean up the country, will Moore credit his movie with that?
Judge for yourself. Just remember after all the docs he has produced, and the box office numbers which he has tallied, Moore is one of them. He is another member of the 1%; his thing is selling us his bite-size takes on matters that he sees as topical and relevant today.
Is this what is called FAKE NEWS? Or is this OLD NEWS?
How the fuck did this happen?
