Ouch! The Numbers Are In From Michael Moore’s Latest Anti-Trump Film’s Opening Weekend, And They’re Not Pretty

Published

on

While the majority of mainstream news outlets have been gushing over Michael Moore’s new anti-Trump film, Fahrenheit 11/9 (although they weren’t all great), ticket buyers weren’t so thrilled.

Perhaps it’s because the film seems to have essentially conducted of a long-form version of everything every single anti-Trump liberal has already said about Trump.

Perhaps it’s because Michael Moore isn’t even trying anymore and simply assumes audiences will show up to see his movie because of his name recognition.

Or perhaps it’s because Trump is the President America elected and many of those who didn’t emphatically support him in 2016 find themselves now, nearly two years later, more appalled by the way the media and entertainment industry has treated him than they are by his policies or character.

Whatever the reas, the film tanked–badly.

The Daily Wire has the story:

Michael Moore’s latest documentary, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” is not doing well at the box office. In its opening weekend, the anti-President Trump movie was set to earn just $3 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

That would put the film at eighth place for the weekend. On Friday, the day it debuted, the movie brought in just $1 million from more than 1,700 screens. The film was projected to haul in $5 million to $8 million.

For comparison, Moore’s biggest hit movie — “Fahrenheit 9/11,” also an anti-Republican president movie — opened in 2004 with a near $24 million haul in its first weekend.

To put it all into perspective, “The House With A Clock In Its Walls,” a kids movie, looked set to haul in $25 million, easily the weekend’s big winner.

While documentaries certainly have their place in the Hollywood cannon, these days, most people probably want to go to the movies to get away from all the noise of the mainstream media complex and Washington circus.

Whether you’re hip to the anti-Trump bias of Hollywood or totally agree with it, perhaps the last thing anyone needed was an entire movie outlining what everyone already knew liberals think about Trump.

CNN’s Don Lemon Becomes Hate Hoax Apologist Overnight

While the accusations are far, far different, this “court of public opinion” is in fact the same figurative judicial institution that condemns Brett Kavanaugh still to this day.

Don Lemon

We live in strange times, my friends, as the liberal left continues to turn toward socialism and antisemitism in some strange repeat of not a century ago.

Hate is in the air, both literally and in the sense of aura surrounding the act.  Television “news” networks, sensing an opportunity to race bait you into watching a commercial break, have been working overtime in recent days, attempting to downplay their once exuberant belief in the story of Jussie Smollett.

Smollett, an actor, has now been implicated in at least one hate crime hoax, in which police say the television star paid two on-set extras to racially harass him for his own publicity.

Smollett has been arrested on charges of filing a false report, yet CNN’s Don Lemon seems to still find the actor a victim…somehow.

During his opening monologue, Lemon told his viewers that the story was “personal” since he and Smollett had been acquaintances and were in constant communication since the alleged incident and that Smollett told Lemon what he said had happened to him, which he admitted raised lots of questions.

He stressed that while Smollett is “innocent until proven guilty,” he still “squandered the good will of a whole lot of people” if his story wasn’t true.

“He even lied to a lot of people… including me. And that’s not cool,” Lemon said to his viewers. “He squandered the good will of very high-profile people who one day may be running this country like Kamala Harris and Cory Booker and people like President Trump.”

But then came a perspective that perhaps crossed the line for many viewers.

Lemon insisted that Smollett has already “lost the fight in the court of public opinion,” but he hesitated to blame him for that defeat.

While the accusations are far, far different, this “court of public opinion” is in fact the same figurative judicial institution that condemns Brett Kavanaugh still to this day.

Worse still, this puts Don Lemon squarely in the corner of a near-serial hate crime hoaxer.

Actor’s Hate Hoax Planned After Previous Propaganda Effort Was Panned

It is only with the sharpest of hatreds that someone could stitch together a diabolic piece of propaganda such as this.

Published

Jussie Smollett

There are very, very few things in this world that are more despicable than hate crimes or hate speech, but faking one for attention is certainly on that short, short list.

That’s exactly what actor Jussie Smollett is being accused of this week after police interrogated two extras from the set of Empire, who claim that the actor paid them a significant amount of money to “attack” him, yelling racial and homophobic slurs.

Smollett’s credibility is falling apart, and police would like to have another word with the actor ASAP.

Now, evidence of Smollett’s premeditation is coming to light, and it doesn’t look good for the Fox actor.

Empire actor Jussie Smollett “concocted” a “staged attacked” against himself after receiving a racist letter addressed to him failed to evoke a “bigger reaction,” a source tells CBS 2.

“When the letter didn’t get enough attention, he concocted the staged attack,” one source told CBS 2’s Brad Edwards, who reported “other sources corroborated that information.”

A letter contained “white powder” was delivered on January 22 to a Chicago set where Empire was filming in the days leading up to the alleged staged assault. In a statement to CNN, Chicago police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi confirmed a HAZMAT team scrambled to Cinespace Studios, where the program was being shot, after the letter was found.

It is only with the sharpest of hatreds that someone could stitch together a diabolic piece of propaganda such as this, and Smollett’s future in the industry isn’t looking too good.
