Outspoken documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has been very vocal as of late, especially when it comes to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Moore even made an anti-Trump documentary, titled Michael Moore in Trumpland, that came as a surprise to everyone, including fans of the filmmaker. He announced the release of the movie on Twitter on Oct. 17.
The film is based on a one-man show,October Surprise, that Moore recently performed in Ohio and shows Moore “diving right into hostile territory,” according to a brief description. Essentially, Moore meets and talks to Trump supporters for much of the movie.
What’s most surprising about Trumpland is Moore’s conclusion: that Trump will win the election over rival Hillary Clinton, and it’ll be the “biggest ‘F**k you!’ ever recorded in human history.”
“[Trump is] saying the things to people who are hurting,” said Moore. “And it’s why every beaten-down, nameless, forgotten working stiff who used to be part of what was called ‘the middle class’ loves Trump. He is the human Molotov cocktail that they’ve been waiting for. The human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them.”
“And on November 8th, Election Day — although they’ve lost their jobs, although they’ve been foreclosed on by the bank, next came the divorce and now the wife and kids are gone, the car has been repo-ed, they haven’t had a real vacation in years, they’re stuck with the s**tty Obamacare Bronze plan where you can’t even get a f**king Percocet — they’ve essentially lost everything they had,” he continued. “Except one thing. The one thing that doesn’t cost them a cent and is guaranteed to them by the American Constitution: the right to vote.”
He elaborates further on his logic, saying that these middle-class Americans see how much powerful elites “hate” Trump, and how much the media — among many other public bodies — “hates” Trump, and their faith in him stems from that. “The enemy of my enemy is who I’m voting for on November 8th,” quipped Moore about the mindset.
“Yes, on November 8th, you — Joe Blow, Steve Blow, Bob Blow, Bill Blow, Billy Bob Blow, all the Blows — get to go and blow up the whole goddamn system because it’s your right,” Moore concluded. “Trump’s election is going to be the biggest ‘F**k you’ ever recorded in human history. And it will feel good.”
For the second half of Trumpland, Moore wholeheartedly insists that Americans vote for Clinton. The filmmaker previously supported former Democratic nominee (and Clinton opponent) Bernie Sanders.
