Michael Moore Calls Trump the Last POTUS in ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Documentary

Fahrenheit 11/9 will see Moore sink his teeth into the phenomenon of Donald Trump and all the unusual things that have come with it - the emergence of the alt-right, total reversals of decades of American foreign policy, and a society more disillusioned than ever.

It is also a play on Moore's earlier documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11, about the presidency of George W. Bush. The "11/9" in the title refers to the day Donald Trump was declared President of the United States, at 2:29AM in the morning of November 9th, 2016. Trump won the presidency by just 77,000 combined votes from those three states.

In an interview with HuffPost, Michael Moore said that Trump "has no intention of leaving the White House" and that the Republican party will be "backing him up" all the way. Over a year after that letter's publication, things haven't changed, which is why Moore made a documentary about the Trump administration. Rick Snyder might also make an appearance since Moore previewed a clip of himself spraying lead-contaminated water from Flint, Michigan on the governor's front lawn. "That all ends with this movie".

It's the latest offering from Moore aimed directly at the effect of Trump following on from his filmed one-man talk Michael Moore in TrumpLand and his Broadway show The Terms of My Surrender. "Our media has no idea what it is up against", he continued.

He added that: "If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out".

Moore released the footage Thursday, six weeks before the documentary hits theaters on September 21.

In the first footage from the film, we see Moore speak to Parkland student and activist David Hogg and rising Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The movies is expected to hit American theatres on September 21.
