    • Michael Moore: Are We Going to Be Like the "Good Germans" Who Let Hitler Rise to Power?

      In his new documentary "Fahrenheit 11/9," filmmaker Michael Moore interviews the last surviving Nuremberg prosecutor, Ben Ferencz, who describes President Trump's policy of family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border and the large-scale detention of immigrant children as a "crime against humanity." Moore also looks at the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany and compares it to the rise of Trump in the United States.

    • Michael Moore: Democrats Made Fatal Mistake in Not Taking Trump More Seriously in 2016

      In July, 2016, Michael Moore wrote a column titled "Five Reasons Why Trump Will Win." In it, Moore wrote, "Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, 'cause you'll be saying them for the next four years: 'PRESIDENT TRUMP.'" He went on to list the five reasons why Trump would be elected: Trump's focus on the Midwest, "The Last Stand of the Angry White Man," "The Hillary Problem," "The Depressed Sanders Vote" and what he called the "Jesse Ventura Effect"—people voting for Trump simply to disrupt the system. We talk to Michael Moore about his predictions and how Democrats failed to take Trump more seriously.

    • Trump Warned Michael Moore Not to Make a Film About Him in 1998 Interview on Roseanne Show

      We continue our conversation with Michael Moore about his interaction with Donald Trump on Roseanne Barr's talk show in November 1998. Moore had released the film "Roger & Me" nine years earlier. Trump was upset to learn the two would be appearing together and threatened to leave, Moore says. Michael Moore negotiated with Trump, asked him not to leave, and promised not to "go after" him over real estate dealings and charges of racism—and now says he was "played."

    • Michael Moore vs. Donald Trump in "Fahrenheit 11/9": New Film Warns Our Democracy Is At Risk

      "Fahrenheit 11/9"—That's the name of the new documentary premiering today by Oscar-winning filmmaker Michael Moore, a stunning retelling of the 2016 election and its aftermath. 11/9. That's November 9, the day Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election. In the film, Michael crosses the country, documenting not only the rise of Trumpism but also the teachers' strikes sweeping the nation, the "blue wave" of progressive candidates in the 2018 primaries, the rise of student activism after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, and the water crisis in his hometown of Flint, Michigan. Moore spares no one in the wide-ranging documentary, which takes aim at the Democratic establishment, The New York Times and other mainstream media outlets, the Electoral College, Barack Obama, Donald Trump and even himself. Michael Moore joins us in our studio to talk about the film and much more.
