Still, Michael Moore's brazenly antagonistic and confrontational style is probably just the thing needed for these times and if this first trailer is anything to go by, he's not even close to pulling his punches.
Shortly before its theatrical bow, Fahrenheit 11/9 - a pseudo-sequel to Moore's anti-George W. Bush documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 - is set to world-premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival in early September. It also sees Moore ominously refer to Trump as "the last president of the United States".
Based on the trailer, the Oscar-winning Moore will tackle everything from the Parkland, Florida, school shooting, gun ownership, and the rise of young gun-control activists David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez to the ongoing water crisis in his hometown of Flint, Michigan, and those standing opposed to Trump.
In terms of calling Trump America's last president, Moore recently spoke to HuffPost about the film, and he said Trump "has no intention of leaving the White House". HuffPost also premiered a trailer for Fahrenheit 11/9, which drops on September 21. "That all ends with this movie".
MICHAEL MOORE Michael Moore has released a trailer for his forthcoming documentary Fahrenheit 11/9
-Michael MooreThe ultimate message of film-which Moore describes as a "comedy/horror documentary"-appears to be a bridge between the argument that Trump presents an existential and unique threat and this message to those who oppose him: Stop despairing". "Our media has no idea what it is up against".
Speaking to RTÉ Entertainment in 2016 on the eve of the release of his last film Where to Invade Next Moore advised Irish people to ridicule Trump on a planned but subsequently cancelled visit to Ireland.
"If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out", Moore said".
