Documentary filmmaker and political activist Michael Moore has officially declared Obama’s presidency as “a big disappointment” and said that he will only be remembered for one thing.
“OK, Not a bad accomplishment, but that’s it,” Moore continued. “That’s it Mr. Obama, 100 years from now, ‘he was the first black American that got elected president’ and that’s it. Eight years of your life and that’s what people are going to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, knowing you, that — you’d probably wish you were remembered for a few other things, a few other things you could’ve done.”
Moore endorsed President Obama in 2008 but concluded that he had no experience or voting record.
“My endorsement is more for Obama the Movement than it is for Obama the candidate,” he said.
He also called Hilary Clinton disgusting for trying to “smear” Obama.
Around the same time, Moore criticized the Bush Administration for the ‘irreversible damage’ it did to America and the rest of the world.
“I, like the majority of Americans, have been pummeled senseless for eight long years,” he wrote. That’s why I will join millions of citizens and stagger into the voting booth come November, like a boxer in the 12th round, all bloodied and bruised with one eye swollen shut, looking for the only thing that matters– that big ‘D’ on the ballot.”
Lastly, Detroit is apparently better off as an Iraqi or Syrian city.
Moore was at the Toronto Film Festival celebrating the 20th anniversary of Roger & Me.
