Fahrenheit 11/9 will see Moore sink his teeth into the phenomenon of Donald Trump and all the odd things that have come with it - the emergence of the alt-right, total reversals of decades of American foreign policy, and a society more disillusioned than ever.
Provided exclusively to the Huffington Post and then posted online Thursday morning, the first trailer of Michael Moore's upcoming film "Fahrenheit 11/9" reveals the filmmaker's attempt at making sense of the rise and reign of President Donald Trump.
The trailer includes footage of Trump rallies, neo-Nazi protests, Roger Stone, Parkland shooting survivors, and Moore himself hosing down the gated lawn of MI governor Rick Snyder with water from Flint. Stop hoping for a magic solution that will thwart him. In June of 2016, Michael Moore famously and publicly predicted that Trump would indeed win the White House in November by winning the states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. To make the Trump documentary, Moore has reunited with his acclaimed team from Fahrenheit 9/11 - Oscar-nominated documentary directors/producers Meghan O'Hara, Tia Lessin and Carl Deal. Trump won the presidency by just 77,000 combined votes from those three states.More news: Another strong quake hits Indonesia's Lombok, witnesses say buildings have collapsed

What do you think of the Fahrenheit 11/9 trailer?
Many of Moore's prior movies caused a stir, but that was before the omnipresence of social media, Since we're all constantly drowning in the never-ending news cycle of Trump's latest idiotic statement or decision, I'm not sure how effective this film can be.More news: Roku's free streaming service is on the web now
