Michael Moore: Obama First Black President, 'And That's It'

By    |   Wednesday, 10 Sep 2014 07:35 PM

Liberal documentary filmmaker and iconoclast Michael Moore – who's been tough on President Barack Obama in the past — eviscerates him in a new video interview, saying he'll be remembered as the first black president — and "that's it."

Moore unloaded while talking with The Hollywood Reporter at the Toronto Film Festival, where Moore helped celebrate the 25th anniversary of "Roger & Me," the award-winning movie that chronicles his attempts to connect with General Motors chairman Roger Smith to discuss GM layoffs in Flint, Mich.

"He's been a huge disappointment," Moore says, noting that he once wrote the president to scold him for taking credit for saving Detroit.

Obama "did not save Detroit," he said, adding that he told the president in a letter, "You saved General Motors… Chrysler."

"Obama, sadly, has done many many good things but has been a huge disappointment," Moore told the interviewer.

Then, pretending to speak directly to the president, Moore pushed the knife a little deeper.

"When the history is written of this era, this is how you'll be remembered: 'He was the first black president,'" Moore said.

"Okay, not a bad accomplishment, but that's it. That's it, Mr. Obama. A hundred 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 got 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 turned back to his interviewer, and remarked:

"It's on that level," he said of his personal displeasure with the president's tenure. "A big disappointment."

The political activist supported Obama in both of his presidential campaigns, but has broke with the Democrat over a range of issues, including Obamacare, NSA snooping, and drone strikes.
