Michael Moore comes back with another documentary containing political hot takes about why Republicans, according to his opinion, will destroy America.
In his latest film, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” Moore speculates that President Donald Trump is very likely to be “the last president of the United States.”
Watch the trailer below:
Moore joined MSNBC host Chris Hayes to talk about his film. Hayes asked the question on most people’s minds: “You really think that?”
“I think it’s possible, absolutely,” Moore said. According to Moore, Trump could end American democracy because he is a businessman, not a politician.
“I think that we have someone in the White House who has no respect for the rule of law, who dislikes democracy by an incredible degree, which doesn’t really make him that much different from other billionaires or CEOs because their businesses are not democracies. They rule by fiat. They decide. They make the calls, and they don’t like having anybody else having a say. They also like to take home the bulk of the money with them. So putting somebody like that in charge of a democracy is a very dangerous thing.”
Moore maintained that having any businessman in charge is dangerous but that it is “more dangerous with [Trump] because he has a complete lack of ideology.”
The filmmaker noted that he would prefer to have Vice President Mike Pence running the country because “at least he believes in something,” adding that “Trump’s only belief system, his only ideology, is Donald J. Trump. That’s what he believes in. Me, myself, and I.”
Hayes urged Moore on his statement that Trump could be the last president since the filmmaker had shown former President George W. Bush in the same light in his film “Fahrenheit 9/11.”
“Bush believed in something,” Moore said. “I didn’t agree with him, but he actually had a belief system. That’s not what’s going on now.”
He also put Trump’s legitimacy into question because he won the Electoral College, not the popular vote.
“The Republicans have only won the popular vote once since daddy [former President George H.W.] Bush was elected in 1988,” Moore said.
