There used to be this silly premise in old-time cinema where great social change could be achieved by putting on a play. This concept was updated in the 1980’s where a totally rad dance number could take down the evil bad guys. It is of course preposterous to think this is how things work in the real world, but Michael Moore has announced that he will destroy Donald Trump with a Broadway play. This is honestly how pathetic the anti-Trump resistance has become.
Fresh off his interview where he said he was rooting for North Korea to annihilate America in a nuclear war, below-average documentary filmmaker Michael Moore announced his next assault on common decency. The Guardian reports that Moore will be staring in a Broadway play titled The Terms of My Surrender. I’m guessing those terms would involve endless popcorn shrimp and a couple of cases of raw cookie dough.
The promotional poster for this play asks: “Can a Broadway show bring down a sitting president?” According to Moore, yes it can.
After running through a series of questions ranging from “why?” to “WTF?” the big noodle-scratcher that comes up here is: Does Michael Moore actually expect people to pay Broadway show prices to watch his fat ass rant and rave about how much he hates Trump when they can see it for free on CNN, MSNBC, and Bill Maher? The answer sadly is: well yeah, kinda. But don’t worry, Moore is promising some more dazzle dazzle.
“We’re 10 blocks from Trump Tower, we’re in the corporate capital of America, we’re in the financial capital of America, we’re in the media capital of America. If one was going to stand on a stage and do the things that I’m going to do, there’s only one place to do it, and it’s here in this city and it’s right here at the epicenter of creative expression and free speech,” said Moore.
The play’s director Michael Mayer (weirdly similar name, eh?) gave even more insight into this ground-breaking piece of theater:
“It’s a humorous play about a country that’s just elected a madman – I mean, there’s really no other way to put it,” said Mayer adding it is a “very developed piece of entertainment for people who like to think.”
If any part of the anti-Trump movement appealed to people who like to think, it wouldn’t be as stupid and directionless as it is. Intelligent people don’t think they can get rid of a sitting US President with a moronic play starring a morbidly obese pain-in-the-ass.
Let’s not forget that Moore released a film before the election called TrumpLand that he said was going to decimate Donald Trump. Instead of doing that, it actually made a pretty good case that he should be president over Hillary Clinton. What makes him think his play is going to pack more of a punch?
A silly recount, an inept Electoral College revolution, fake news, Russian conspiracy theories, and liberal temper tantrums have all failed in taking down Trump, but Michael Moore thinks a play will do the trick. Instead of trying to take Trump down, he should worry about getting his cholesterol and weight down. I’m being serious. The guy is dangerously unhealthy and being furious about everything isn’t helping things because stress is as big of a killer as saturated fats.
Now that I’ve written that, I’m thinking “Saturated Fats” would be a great nickname for Michael Moore. He gets way more exposure than he deserves and he’s plump and jiggly.
