‘The Misogynists’ Labels Trump Voters ‘Misanthropic Sociopaths’

The entertainment industry has made it clear: they really don’t like President Trump. After the hundreds of angry celebrities, anti-Trump songs, and anti-Trump television, finally Hollywood is ready to sell a movie about the election.

Deadline reported that in November, the film The Misogynists will be released, arguably the first film that specifically addresses Trump. According to Mike Fleming Jr., the plot is a “satirical dark comedy about two Trump supporters celebrating in a hotel room on election night.”

The two main characters are middle-aged men, estranged from their wives, who somehow end up with two prostitutes who are “having an existential crisis of their own.” Basically, the film paints Trump voters in the most unflattering light possible.

The film follows “an ensemble of characters” who “venture in and out of the room, challenging each others’ beliefs, questioning what it means to be an American.” Sounds deep and beyond the scope of a movie aimed at taking down Trump voters.

But its art, isn’t it? Director Onur Tukel admitted, “I’m fascinated by hypocrisy and the contradictions of living in a free society. Plus, I’ve always been drawn to misanthropic sociopaths.”

The director plans on unveiling his masterpiece at an unnamed film festival around the anniversary of Election Day.
