Here's the trailer for Michael Moore's Donald Trump doc, 'Fahrenheit 11/9'

Fahrenheit 11/9: first trailer for Michael Moore's Trump documentary ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Trailer: Michael Moore Doc Targets Mid-Term Elections

Fahrenheit 11/9 will see Moore sink his teeth into the phenomenon of Donald Trump and all the unusual things that have come with it - the emergence of the alt-right, total reversals of decades of American foreign policy, and a society more disillusioned than ever.

Moore's new documentary, scheduled to hit theaters on September 21, seeks to "bring Trump down" before the November midterms.

The new trailer includes a Michigan-centric trip to Gov. Rick Snyder's home, where Moore pulls out a fire hose and sprays "Flint Water" out of a tanker truck and over the fence onto the property. "This is the movie that will end the madness".

"Hope is passive", Moore said about the movie. The clip refers to Trump as "the last president of the United States".

"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader", Moore said about the documentary. "He's taking a much bigger perspective on American politics", Thom Powers, the docs programmer for the Toronto International Film Festival, where Moore will premiere the film, told the Los Angeles Times. 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.

Moore, an Academy Award-winning director, is helming the film. But months before that infamous night, Moore had already begun ruminating on what could be done to stop the, according to him, "carnage Trump would inflict while president".

To call Michael Moore one of Donald Trump's most outspoken critics is an understatement. Now, Moore has found a new form for this highly original title with Fahrenheit 11/9.

The trailer for "Fahrenheit 11/9" is fairly unfocused, but it seems to be pulling the usual leftist talking points: Trump is a dictator, his supporters are racist, America is not the greatest country in the world, pigs will soon fly, blah, blah, blah.
