    Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore was an unwitting participant in a November anti-Trump rally that was allegedly organized by the Russians indicted last week for meddling in the 2016 presidential election.According to the indictment of 13 Russian nationals released Friday by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the defendants and their co-conspirators tried to sow discord in the U.S. political system by organizing dueling rallies for and against then-President-elect Donald Trump in New York City on Nov. 12, 2016.One of those rallies, called “Trump is NOT my President,” was promoted on social media and MSNBC by Mr. Moore, who has routinely accused...

    It falls to Michael Moore’s empty stomach to help explain to me the difference between hope and optimism. “Right now, I’m hoping that somebody will feed me today,” he says. But that hope is passive. It may whet his appetite, but the disappointment will be all the more crushing if it isn’t satisfied. On the other hand, he explains, optimism is constructive, strategic. “I’m in a first world country, and somewhere I have a wallet with a credit card and some money in it. So the optimist in me has credibility, because it’s safe to say I will eat. Does...
  • Michael Moore: ‘Beloved Americans’ Tom Hanks, Michelle Obama Could Defeat Trump in 2020

    Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore believes “beloved Americans” such as actor Tom Hanks or Michelle Obama are some of the few possible candidates who could defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. In an interview with Good Morning Britain‘s Piers Morgan, Michael Moore said that the Democratic Party needs to put forward a candidate with widespread appeal. “Democrats need to run a beloved American, someone people want to vote for,” Moore explained. “I’ve said for years that Oprah should run. I’ve asked Tom Hanks twice to run.” “Who doesn’t like Tom Hanks? Nobody, right? Tom Hanks would win,”...
  • Why Michael Moore is irrelevant in the age of Trump

    Michael Moore set the record for the highest-grossing documentary of all time (1989’s “Roger & Me”). Then he broke his own record (2002’s “Bowling for Columbine”). Then he broke it again, with what remains the highest-grossing doc in US history, 2004’s “Fahrenheit 9/11.” Along the way he won an Oscar and predicted Donald Trump’s presidential victory when no one else saw it coming. That was then. These days Moore’s IRS-reported income is (according to legal papers filed by his ex-wife, Kathleen Glynn) negative-$350,862 (in 2014) and negative-$221,025 (in 2016). He’s still making movies, but America is yawning. Already there have...

    Kathy Griffin had some sharp words for Michael Moore on Thursday, after “Fahrenheit 11/9” filmmaker implored the left to “Stop hoping & start acting!” In a tweet published Thursday, Moore made an apparent reference to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who became the subject of an FBI investigation due to a sexual misconduct accusation leveled against him by Christine Blasey Ford..... ...“When is our side going to wake up and start FIGHTING? Stop hoping & start acting!” he added.... ....To which Griffin replied, “Michael…WE LOST.” “What more could we have done? We don’t have the Senate or the Presidency. What...

    It’s been almost two years since Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election to Donald Trump in a stunning upset. Director Michael Moore lays out his take on how Trump pulled off the surprise victory in his latest film, Fahrenheit 11/9, in theaters Friday. (The title is a riff on the day when the race was called for Trump and the title of his 2004 movie Fahrenheit 9/11). In his new doc, the liberal Moore slams Republicans, showing footage of Adolf Hitler dubbed with Trump speeches. But he also criticizes Democrats, claiming that the party rigged the Democratic National Convention to...

The films of Michael Moore have been faltering at the box office for several years now.  This weekend, though, the lackluster performance of his latest truth-to-power opus, "Fahrenheit 11/9," was notably dramatic, if not downright stark.

    Michael Moore's latest anti-Republican documentary tanked at the box office compared to his movies from a decade ago, as “Fahrenheit 11/9” barely registered with a $3.1 million take on its first weekend. The title was a play on his 2004 documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11” that sought to expose mishandlings in President George W. Bush’s White House following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The latest film, as Fox News previously reported, sought to do the same to President Trump at a key time for the country: the 2018 midterm elections. “Fahrenheit 11/9” took in $3.1 million in 1,719 cinemas — a large debut for...

    [Snip] So, in that sense, it’s no surprise that Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 tanked in its whopping 1,719 theater wide release debut. [Snip] folks are even less likely to flock to an openly political documentary, and frankly even those on the left don’t necessarily want to pay to see a 125-minute crash course of the current horrors of the day. I’d gladly pay triple the ticket price to see a version of the movie without you-know-who babbling incoherently. I’d argue that Moore’s motives in making the movie were less about spreading the word through its contents than in using the...

    You’ll cry laughing at Michael Moore’s new doc Fahrenheit 11/9, an unmissable provocation about the rise and rise of Donald J. Trump that should help get out the vote in November better than any limp recruitment outreach. One of Moore’s best and most incisively funny films — right up there with Roger & Me (1989), Bowling for Columbine (2002) and Sicko (2007) — his latest goes way past taking potshots at the Donald, though it does that with piercing intelligence and wounding wit. Rather, he wants to show us that this celebrity Commander-in-Chief didn’t just fall from the sky. The...

    The “Fahrenheit 11/9” director also said Americans should expect the “evil genius” to be re-elected in 2020. Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore said he believes President Donald Trump either wrote or directed one of his staffers to write the anonymous Op-Ed in The New York Times that described an alleged “resistance” effort within his administration. “Trump or one of his minions wrote it,” Moore told CNN in an interview published Sunday. “He’s the master distractor. He’s the king of the misdirect. If we have learned anything by now, it’s that he does things to get people to turn away.” He continued:...

    "Too many people in the summer of 2016 were so sure Hillary [Clinton] was going to win, saying no one is going to vote for this idiot," Moore said. "He could win again. I operate as if he is a two-term Trump. I have to. If you think any other way you are guaranteeing that whoever is going to run against him will lose." Moore's explanation to the phenomenon of a Trump presidency? "I think the man is an evil genius and he was able to outsmart the smartest person ever to run for president," Moore said.

    FULL TITLE: Michael Moore Thinks Donald Trump Wrote NYTimes Op-Ed Piece: “He’s the master of distraction, he wants us to believe there are adults in the room” Michael Moore made the scary prediction that Donald Trump was “the last president of the United States” in the trailer to his new documentary “Fahrenheit 11/9,” which premiere in New York Thursday evening at Alice Tully Hall. On the red carpet I asked the filmmaker exactly what he meant by that. “It’s that we may not have our United States the way that we knew it. If he’s successful in dismantling our democracy...

    "The pair have a storied bromance, which began when Mr Trudeau visited the White House for a state dinner last year" Even going-for-Trump-jugular Michael Moore realized that anti-gun activist David Hogg got it bass-ackwards by asking Canadians to meddle in American elections. Bass-ackwards because former President Barack Obama got away with meddling in Canada’s 2015 federal election by sending his top campaign team to help Justin Trudeau get elected as Canada’s prime minister.

    There are many theories as to why Donald Trump ran for president. Some say it was because Seth Meyers and President Obama made fun of him at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, others say it was to further his business, and this week, Michael Moore told The Hollywood Reporter that Trump ran for president because of former No Doubt front woman and The Voice judge Gwen Stefani. According to THR, Moore suggested that Trump was inspired to announce his run for president after learning that Stefani was earning higher performance fees from NBC as a judge on The Voice...

My kids. My home. One way or the other, I would have the last word. As I have throughout my life and career. And I was...

Moore’s counting on cashing in on a pandemic Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) and making box office millions by linking President Donald Trump’s America with neo-nazi riots and school shootings.
