Michael Moore, Harvey Weinstein Team Up to Take Trump Down

It seems as though Michael Moore is still bitter from last November’s election and directing anti-Republican movies as a creative and cathartic outlet. After all, who can forget his movie Fahrenheit 9/11 mocking George W. Bush and his War on Terror. Brent Bozell called it a "flagrant foul on the facts."

Moore has now teamed up with his former collaborators to produce Fahrenheit 11/9, a play on the title of his Bush-bashing movie, though this time the date signifies the day after Donald J. Trump was elected president...and liberals compared it to a "moral 9/11." An announcement about the movie this past Tuesday stated the movie “is aimed at dissolving Trump’s 'teflon' shield and his presidency.”

Harvey Weinstein’s company the Weinstein Company (TWC) is producing the film, much like the tag team they were back in the days of producing Fahrenheit 9/11.  It’s no surprise, considering Weinstein is one of the most powerful, influential and richest heavy-hitters in Hollywood, not to mention one of the most liberal.  Weinstein oozed over the new project:

 “There is no greater part of what we can do right now than to have the power to bring Michael Moore to a mass audience. When we had the opportunity to work with him on Fahrenheit 9/11, we were so persistent that we ultimately had to part ways from Disney and we lost our beloved Miramax, named after our parents, because we believed so strongly in the message. The movie broke all records then [as a documentary, albeit hardly "nonfiction"], and we plan to do so again. This movie will have one of the most innovative distribution plans ever. Now more than ever, Michael’s appetite for the truth is crucial. We are ecstatic to be a part of this revolution.

Um, wait a minute. Does anyone remember George W. Bush losing the election in 2004 due to Michael Moore? And yet, Moore thinks his new movie will be the end of Trump:

"No matter what you throw at [Trump], it hasn't worked…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."
