President Donald Trump called Michael Moore’s one-man Broadway show “a TOTAL BOMB” Saturday after hearing its 12-week run had come to an end. But Moore took a swing right back, tweeting, “On Broadway, Donald, they call it a ‘LIMITED ENGAGEMENT’ — just like we’re planning on making your presidency.”
And Moore didn’t stop there. In a string of tweets Saturday night, the documentary filmmaker laid it on pretty thick, pointing out that there were other more important things the President of the United States should be spending his time thinking about, like dead soldiers, Americans in Puerto Rico still in dire need and, of course, the pending criminal indictments.
“You must have my smash hit of a Broadway show confused with your presidency– which IS a total bomb and WILL indeed close early. NOT SAD,” Moore tweeted.
“Today, 1 U.S. service member was killed & 6 injured in our never-ending war in Afghanistan,” Moore went on. “You, our President, are not even aware of this… Prosecutor Mueller’s Grand Jury has just approved the 1st criminal indictments of your administration. R u trying 2 distract us from this? … 38 days after Maria, 3/4 of PR (our fellow Americans) have NO electricity. Yet u are more upset that so many ppl saw my B’way show. SAD.”
Moore continued: “They say Twitter ‘distracts’ you from your presidency. But Twitter IS YOUR PRESIDENCY! It’s all you know how to do. #LOSER! … And now, for this weekend, I’m your latest distraction from your crimes. Ha! Raucous & joyous crowds every nite on B’way- & u missed out! It was the highest grossing play (non-musical) of the summer, despite my offering $29 cheap seats + free student tix so ALL could afford.
“As announced on May 1st, it was always a ’12-WEEK-ONLY’ run, due to my commitments to my upcoming primetime TV series & my new movie. On Broadway, Donald, they call it a ‘LIMITED ENGAGEMENT’ — just like we’re planning on making your presidency.”
With the looming indictments in the investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, Moore went in for the k.o. Sunday morning.
“What’s it like to be Donald Trump today, just hrs away from the first of many criminal indictments that could send friends & family to jail?,” Moore tweeted.
“So after thousands of tweets where u mock disabled ppl, trash Gold Star wives & parents and just make shit up in your crude & vulgar way… I’m the1st u decide to apologize 2 for being ‘not at all presidential’? Tomorrow’s arrests of your family/friends must be messing u up.”
