The first trailer for Michael Moore's Donald Trump documentary Fahrenheit 11/9 has been released, promising an incendiary look at modern life in America. "Roger Stone, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Parkland massacre survivor Emma González and a host of others from both sides of the so-called aisle appear in the film".

Here's the exclusive trailer for Michael Moore's (@MMFlint) newest documentary "Fahrenheit 11/9".

Moore has spoken out voraciously against Trump for months, encouraging the president's detractors to "put [their] bodies on the line" to stop his policies. "We're going to bring Trump down". The title refers to the date when Trump became president-elect of the United States, and following the news that this movie will play at the Toronto International Film Festival, the first trailer has arrived.

"On opening weekend, Fahrenheit 9/11 was the number one movie in every red state in the country", he says in reference to his award-winning documentary. Conservatives won't watch it (unless they convince themselves to hate-watch it to somehow "own the libs") and liberals may be too exhausted with the onslaught of political news to give it much thought.

Lindsay Lohan isn't letting the backlash from her recent comments on the #MeToo movement keep her from doing her thing in Greece. Lindsay Lohan criticized some women for speaking out about their experiences with sexual misconduct, saying they "look weak".

Moore's controversial 2004 documentary "Farenheit 9/11", which explored former President George W. Bush's War on Terror, is the highest-grossing documentary of all time.

Moore, who is known for his antagonistic style, calls Trump the "last president of the United States" and follows his election campaign in 2016, his first year in office, and how Trump's victory has led to division and confrontation in the USA over issues of immigration, the far right, fake news, and white supremacy. It was originally set to be released with the Weinstein Company before Harvey Weinstein was hit with multiple allegations of sexual assault. "That all ends on September 21", he said, referring to the documentary's release date. We don't need hope.

"If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out". "Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with".
