#TRAILERCHEST: Michael Moore releases trailer for Trump documentary Fahrenheit 11/9

In the trailer, Moore also hoses down Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's lawn with water he says is from Flint, a city that made headlines for the risky amounts of lead in its water sources.

The first trailer for Fahrenheit 11/9 debuted on HuffPost Thursday, teasing what looks like more of the same politically charged action we've come to expect with Moore, this time taking a look at U.S. President Donald Trump, the rise of white nationalism in the U.S., and the reaction of the left in a post-Trump world. To make the Trump documentary, Moore has reunited with his acclaimed team from Fahrenheit ‪9/11 - Oscar-nominated documentary directors/producers Meghan O'Hara, Tia Lessin and Carl Deal. He began shooting the film past year with the "11/9" in the title referring to the day Trump was declared President of the United States on November 9, 2016.

Released on September 21 ahead of the USA's upcoming midterm elections, the title Fahrenheit 11/9 refers to the date the Associated Press called the election for Trump, while also alluding to Moore's 2004 documentary Fahrenheit 9/11.

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. "It was a hit in military towns and on military bases".

Many of Moore's prior movies caused a stir, but that was before the omnipresence of social media, Since we're all constantly drowning in the never-ending news cycle of Trump's latest idiotic statement or decision, I'm not sure how effective this film can be. "I will at least give them a song they can belt out". "If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out". "Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with".
