Michael Moore has emerged as one of the fiercest critics of President Trump… but even he admits that Trump’s likely a shoe-in for a second-term.
“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.”
“I think the man is an evil genius and he was able to outsmart the smartest person ever to run for president,” Moore added. “He figured out how to win by losing the election. How did that happen? Historians are going to deal with this for years to come.”
Moore is one of the first to produce a “larger picture” of the Trump Administration: his latest film Fahrenheit 11/9—a reference to his anti-Bush film released shortly before the 2004 election, and November 9, the day Trump was elected President—opens in theaters on September 20.
“We made a decision on the first day of this film that we were not going to chase the news cycle,” Moore explained. “Because why do that? People see on the nightly news they don’t need to go to a movie theater to watch that.”
“We are presenting the larger picture of what is going on,” he added. “I’m also going to show people how Trump didn’t just fall out of the sky. There’s a long road to Trump and we have all sadly been on it.”
