Michael Moore—the well-known, left-wing filmmaker—is on a press tour right now to promote his newest activist artwork, the documentary film Fahrenheit 11/9. The film’s title, a reference to the date President Donald Trump was elected, is also a play on Moore’s highest grossing film Fahrenheit 9/11, which was released during the George W. Bush’s presidency.
Whoa! It’s coming! OPENING JUST 4 WEEKS FROM TONIGHT! “Fahrenheit 11/9”, my new film — it will %#€&@£ you up!! September 21st, in theaters all across the US. You’ve been warned... pic.twitter.com/g4XnRupHBL— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) August 25, 2018
Hogg, who recently turned 18, took the stage to cheers and began a short speech for the crowd.
“I have a question for you guys,” he said. “Who is ready to save America?” He went on to talk about racial inequality and voting rights, before addressing the crowd directly, making a gaffe about basic election law.
David Hogg thinks that Canadian nationals can donate to political campaigns in the United States.— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) September 9, 2018
Michael Moore has to correct him and then gently takes the mic away. pic.twitter.com/ja008pqYio
“I think Canadians can donate to political campaigns in the U.S.,” he said, looking to Moore for confirmation. Moore shook his head, taking the mic a moment later to correct the young man. Moore, seasoned speaker that he is, quickly got things back on track and let Hogg continue. The moment passed, though the young activist is already receiving heat for his misstep.
It's amazing how the Left champions activists that just sound dumb as a box of rocks.— Brent Bozell (@BrentBozell) September 9, 2018

David Hogg + microphone = 😳— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 10, 2018
Instead of an indulgent roadshow with man-child Michael Moore, young Hogg needs to get off the stage, have an adult intervention, and submit himself to a proper education. https://t.co/hmBz7nVa94
Following his mistake, Hogg went on to encourage Canadians to vote and criticized the IRS for refusing to audit the president, whom he says “likely got $30 million from Russia via the NRA.”
Overjoyed & grateful by the overwhelming response to "FAHRENHEIT 11/9" last nite at #TIFF18! Thankful to share stage w/ @Apriltcook & Pastor Hawkins of Flint and @davidhogg111, @Ryan_Deitsch & @MattxRed of Parkland, FL. Rage, laughter, tears & amazing standing ovation! Thank u! pic.twitter.com/r82AmeWMmw— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) September 8, 2018
The film, which is set to be released Sept. 21, is a critical look at the Trump presidency. It will address the danger that Moore says Trump presents and features interviews from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Roger Stone, and Emma Gonzalez, another survivor of the Parkland shooting.
