“F—k hope,” because it’s “the lazy way out,” Marxist propaganda film maker Michael Moore says in an interview promoting his new anti-Trump film, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” which opens in theaters on September 21.
Legal means and exposing scandals can’t “save the country,” Moore told The Huffington Post in his vulgar attack on “hope”:
“F–k hope. Seriously, f–k hope. F–k despair, too. But f–k hope.
“Hope is passive. Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work. Hope leads people to believe that tax returns, or a pee tape, or the FBI or an adult film star will save the country. Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with. It’s the lazy way out.
“We don’t need hope. We need action.”
“There is a real insurgency taking place” – and it’s coming from an extremely surprising source, Moore said:
“The revolution is happening in the most unlikely of places. The resistance ― the true resistance ― is not coming from the Democratic Party or from the liberal establishment. I can’t reveal too much right now, but there is a real insurgency taking place.”
“Ladies and gentlemen: the last president of the United States,” the trailer for Moore’s film declares while showing a clip of President Donald Trump.

In an excerpt from the interview, Moore says:
In starting “Fahrenheit 11/9,” what was your intention? Did it change at all during the course of production?
Donald Trump is an evil genius. He has no intention of leaving the White House. Whenever he hears that another country has a president for life, he perks up and thinks, “I like the sound of that!” And he has an obedient political party that holds every seat of power backing him up.
American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader. Our media has no idea what it is up against. They’re getting steamrolled by a tyrant because Trump understands media and understands the country he lives in more than those that cover him do. This puts us all in grave danger. If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out.
In other news about Michael Moore’s desperation, it was reveals that serial rapist & infamous Hollywood pervert Harvey Weinstein bankrolled the latest propaganda piece.
Moore has been working on the film in secret for months and fantasizes that it will help puncture Trump’s seemingly impenetrable armor.
“No matter what you throw at him, it hasn’t worked,” Moore said. “No matter what is revealed, he remains standing. Facts, reality, brains cannot defeat him. Even when he commits a self-inflicted wound, he gets up the next morning and keeps going and tweeting. That all ends with this movie.”
For Fahrenheit 11/9, Moore has reunited with Fahrenheit 9/11 producers, Bob and disgraced Harvey Weinstein, who faces life in prison for multiple counts of sexual assault.
The birds of a feather shopped the film to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival. Moore and the Weinsteins scored a massive hit with Fahrenheit 9/11, which won the Palme D’or at Cannes and went on to become the highest-grossing documentary of all time.
Meanwhile, a potential legal battle is brewing between Michael Moore and Harvey and Bob Weinstein over Fahrenheit 11/9, the sequel Moore is making to his 2004 film, which became the biggest grossing documentary of all time.
Titled Fahrenheit 11/9 to commemorate the day Donald Trump pulled off a shocking victory to become U.S. president, the new film focuses on how it happened and all the chaos that followed in Trump’s first year in office. The Weinsteins have controls over the docu, and sources said they are right now blocking Moore and his WME reps from being able to set the film with a theatrical distributor or a premium broadcast outlet.
