Still, Michael Moore's brazenly antagonistic and confrontational style is probably just the thing needed for these times and if this first trailer is anything to go by, he's not even close to pulling his punches. It will explore the two most important questions of the Trump Era: How the f**k did we get here, and how the f**k do we get out? He later introduces Trump as "the last president of the United States" as a shot of Trump flashing a menacing glance at the camera appears onscreen. "That all ends with this movie".
To call Michael Moore one of Donald Trump's most outspoken critics is an understatement.
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.More news: Chelsea, Real Madrid agree to Thibaut Courtois deal

Now Moore has turned his lens on America under the reign of Donald Trump, going after the lawmakers in Flint, Michigan over their disastrous handling of the city's water crisis and talking to people like David Hogg, one of the survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida that happened earlier this year. This puts us all in grave danger.
Speaking to RTÉ Entertainment in 2016 on the eve of the release of his last film Where to Invade Next Moore advised Irish people to ridicule Trump on a planned but subsequently cancelled visit to Ireland. Hope leads people to believe that tax returns, or a pee tape, or the Federal Bureau of Investigation or an adult film star will save the country.
Fahrenheit 11/9 opens on September 21.
