Cesar Sayoc, the man accused of sending pipe bombs in packages to several prominent Democratic lawmakers and a news organization, can be seen chanting at a rally for President Donald Trump in unused footage Michael Moore shared from his latest movie, Fahrenheit 11/9.
The footage, which Moore shared on Facebook, shows Sayoc chanting at a rally in Melbourne, Florida, shortly after Trump’s inauguration in early 2017.
In the clip, Sayoc, who was charged with five federal crimes for allegedly sending the bombs, can be seen holding up a large sign with similar iconography that was on his van. He also shouts “CNN sucks” in the clip.
“Here in this outtake from Fahrenheit 11/9 is 3 minutes and 38 seconds of raw, unedited footage–and you can see what Sayoc had become by early 2017, his body grossly deformed into what he thought a man should be, muscles the size of basketballs, he’s wearing a sleeveless white T-shirt, holding a big anti-CNN sign and, along with his fellow Trumpsters, is yelling at the journalists who had gathered in the media pen,” the filmmaker wrote.
“You’ll see him two or three times, each for a few seconds, but if you pause on him you will also see something profound. Underneath his threatening Hulk-like exterior, there is fear in his eyes and, for a quick moment, you can see he is already gone, a lost dog with no direction home.”
Sayoc was charged with sending more than a dozen packages to several prominent liberal figures who were critical of Trump and the offices of CNN.
The packages were sent to former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, Bill and Hillary Clinton, billionaire George Soros, John Brennan, Eric Holder, actor Robert DeNiro, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), James Clapper, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.).
Authorities said Sayoc’s Twitter account included misspellings “consistent with the packages” and they found a “latent fingerprint” on a package sent to Waters.
