Fahrenheit 11/9: first trailer for Michael Moore's Trump documentary

Fahrenheit 11/9: first trailer for Michael Moore's Trump documentary

Documentary fans have known that Michael Moore's documentaries are not to be missed, ever since the days of the Oscar-winning Bowling For Columbine.

The film will feature cameos from Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and former Trump advisor Roger Stone. The scene in which an incensed Moore sprays water from Flint onto the home of MI governor Rick Snyder stands out in particular, made all the more meaningful as Moore himself is a Flint native.

Saudi Arabia pulls scholarships for students in Canada amid diplomatic tensions
Last week, Canada's Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed concerns over the arrests of seven Saudi civil society activists. Traders said they had received an official notice from the Saudi Grains Organization (SAGO) about its decision.

Fahrenheit 11/9 will release on September 21.

"Can't take the insanity anymore?" the trailer reads before footage from Trump rallies and the Charlottesville protests previous year. He essentially wants to expose Trump's "evil genius" by examining the cascade of events and sentiments that followed his presidency. "This is the movie that will end the madness".

39 people killed, 51 others injured, mostly children, in Yemen bus attack
Worldwide rights groups repeated calls for an end to the war and strongly condemned the bus attack and other civilian massacres. After today's strike, Lise Grande, United Nations humanitarian coordinator in Yemen, urged all parties to come to the table.

The "Fahrenheit 11/9" footage also shows Moore speaking to David Hogg, the activist student who survived the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on February 14, 2018, and progressive Democratic Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who won a stunning victory in the primary earlier this summer. "Our media has no idea what it is up against", he continued. This time Moore digs deep into the American culture to ask two provocative questions about the "Trump era": How the f**k did we get here, and how the f**k do we get out? This puts us all in grave danger.

That city's water supply was poisoned when, in 2014, its source was switched from Lake Huron and the Detroit River to the cheaper Flint River, whose water flow was exposed to lead contamination. The title is a retread of his 2004 work 'Fahrenheit 9/11, ' with the reversed date referring to Election Day 2016.

Drama grips court as Manafort lawyers accuse Rick Gates of multiple affairs
Prosecutor Uzo Asonye asked if Manafort would have qualified for the loan if he had known DMP's profit for that year was in fact $400,000.

That last part seems like a naive statement, and unless Moore is hiding some bombshell reveal in his movie, I feel like this film isn't going to have much of an impact on the national conversation.
