Michael Moore announced the release date of and showed footage from his upcoming documentary about President Donald Trump during his appearance in The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday night.
The Fahrenheit 9/11 filmmaker revealed that the documentary will be released on September 21 and confirm that the title Fahrenheit 11/9 will be the target of his earlier 2004 film President George W. Bush.
Although the director said he "can not reveal too much about the documentary now," he showed footage of trying to enter Trump National Golf Club Mar-a-. Lago, or as he said to someone when he tried to enter the "Southern White House". He is held out by a door through an iron gate as the camera zooms in to see who is in it. "Just tell him that it's me," Moore says to a porter.

After the footage was aired, Colbert Moore asked what he thinks about calling for "courtesy" after an opportunity in which press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was brought in by the Red Hen Restaurant because, she said, she worked for Trump. Moore said, "Our side is constantly giving in," and said that Democrats must resist, but be "non-violent." But he added, "We do not talk about political differences, we talk about thousands of children who are separated from their parents and put in prisons … That's amazing, it's not who we are, is it?" he asked to cheer from the audience.
When asked if he hopes for political change, rather than just confrontation, Moore admitted he cries every day as he reads the news. After adding, "the only way we'll stop is that we need to get our bodies aligned," he said, "the reason he does movies is that he thinks there's a chance. "
In a further reference to what Trump expects in the documentary, the filmmaker made a warning to President and Comedian Roseanne Barr last month, tweeting a vintage clip from a 1998 episode of Barr's Syndicated Talk Show The Roseanne Show She, in which Moore appeared with them both. In the clip, Trump congratulated Moore on his film Roger & Me who also jokingly said, "I hope you never do anything to me."
"I know Roseanne and I know Trump They'll regret the day they knew me …" Moore warned. The tweet followed a previous post in which Moore wrote: "So @therealroseanne woke up this morning and wrote hateful, slanderous tweets about me, Valerie Jarrett, George Soros and Chelsea Clinton – and ABC fired them – if only NBC fired Trump He would not be in the White House today in 2011, he would not be in the White House today. "
Moore announced last year that he would schedule a documentary about Trump and his presidency entitled Fahrenheit 11/9 , The new documentary refers to the date on which Trump was elected president.
The film was officially announced at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017, when Harvey and Bob Weinstein said they had acquired rights worldwide under their Fellowship Adventure Group when presenting the film to potential distributors. While it was originally planned for a possible summer issue of 2017, Moore instead turned to his Broadway show The Terms of My Surrender, which had a twelve-week run.
Following the revelations about Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual assault, Moore and his agents began negotiations to free his Trump Doc, who was not part of the auctioned TWC holdings, from the Weinsteins
