Michael Moore released the trailer for his anti-Donald Trump documentary, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” on Thursday.
The film is a sequel of sorts to “Fahrenheit 9/11,” (his anti-George W. Bush film). The transposed numbers refer to Nov. 9, 2016, the day after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States.
The trailer was released by The Huffington Post in a tweet, which you can see below.

In his latest doc, which will hit theaters on Sept. 21, the film’s release is ahead of November’s midterm election where Democrats are hoping to gain control of the House of Representatives and/or the Senate, which the director told Bill Maher was his plan.
“We are living ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,'” Moore said during a June appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher.” “This is a serious point. The best part of the show is the flashbacks, where she tries to figure out where was the point where it was too late. Where was the point that if we all just had risen up, just done something? But because it happens in little increments. That’s how fascism works.”
He hopes the movie’s premiere several weeks before the November midterm elections will help “get millions of people out to the polls.”
