If the national mood was splintered when that movie opened in 2004, it’s nothing compared to what it is now, almost two years into Donald Trump’s presidency.

The Oscar-winning film-maker has been focusing on the effect of the president in an attempt to shift public perception before November.

“I’m finishing my movie and getting it out before the midterms because I want millions of people to get to the polls,” he said to Bill Maher in June. “We’re going to bring Trump down.".....

“On opening weekend, Fahrenheit 9/11 was the No 1 movie in every red state in the country,” he says in reference to his award-winning documentary. “It was a hit in military towns and on military bases.

 

Your right gordy, "it’s nothing compared to what it is now".  Fair is fair and since dt continues to lie in his weak efforts to shift public opinion that he is not a criminal, Moore's work is right on time.

I will definitely go watch this when it comes out.


Of course you will. First of all it supports a fellow hater. And secondly, it will probably provide more to churn your stomach acid.

Me too, even though I'll probably have a rather long drive to the theater with a lot of traffic. Should be at the very least interesting.

Coming to Theaters September 21 (Before the Election)....


"Fahrenheit 11/9"...November 9 -- The Day Donald Trump Won the Election...


Question: Given the title’s connection to “Fahrenheit 9/11,” what’s your assessment of American politics today compared to when you made that film?


Michael Moore: When we started making “Fahrenheit 9/11,” George W. Bush had a 70 percent approval rating, 29 Democratic senators had voted for the Iraq war, and The New York Times and the liberal establishment were all aiding and abetting Bush and his war. Every TV network was waving the American flag, and those of us who dissented were in a lonely minority and called unpatriotic. Outlets like HuffPost didn’t exist and MSNBC was trying to out-Fox Fox News. It was a dark, dark time, and America and the world has paid a very steep price for it.

 

Now we live in even darker times. So that hasn’t changed.
