"Ladies and gentlemen, the last president of the United States," Moore says in a voiceover as Trump stares into the camera. 

The trailer, released by HuffPost on Thursday, shows Moore and some of the prominent public figures of the Trump era: Parkland, Fla., shooting survivors David Hogg and Emma González; former Trump campaign adviser Roger StoneRoger Jason StoneBannon asked Trump DOJ to reimburse his legal fees from Russia probe: report Feds charge members of Three Percenters militia group over Jan. 6 attack Biden's anti-corruption memo is good news — and essential to US national security MORE; and rising progressive star House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. 

"Can’t take the insanity anymore?" reads text that emerges in between clips of last year's protests in Charlottesville, Va., and Trump rallies. "This is the movie that will end the madness." 

Moore told HuffPost that he hopes the film exposes the "grave danger" posed by Trump.


"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader," Moore told the online media outlet. "Our media has no idea what it is up against. 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. This puts us all in grave danger."

"If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out," Moore said.

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. His new documentary's title is a reference to that film and the day after Trump was voted into office: November 9, 2016. 

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.

In the trailer, Moore also hoses down Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's lawn with water he says is from Flint, a city that made headlines for the dangerous amounts of lead in its water sources. 

"The majority of Americans agree with me on the issues," Moore told HuffPost. "I’m part of the majority. Our choir is much bigger than Trump’s choir or Fox News’s choir."

"Unfortunately, our choir is out of tune, and it’s hard to hear our voices through all the sobbing and despair. That all ends on Sept. 21," he said, referring to the documentary's release date.
