If this is the resistance, we might as well celebrate Trump’s 2020 win now.
Michael Moore, the radical liberal filmmaker who spent 8 years obsessing over George W. Bush, now has his sights set on President Trump.
Rather than make another documentary that nobody watches, Moore, apparently bitten by the drama bug, has written and produced a one-man play.
The star, of course, is Moore. The play is called “The Terms of My Surrender.” Moore has described it as a “12-step meeting for the Democratic Party,” which is fitting given that Trump mopped the floor with the party of Clinton and Obama last Election Day.
The play opened at New York City’s Belasco Theater yesterday. The reviews are already in. And the verdict is near-unanimous: Moore’s latest is a great big stinker!
From the Washington Free Beacon:
Here is a round-up of critics who reviewed Moore’s Broadway debut:
“You don’t have to disagree with Mr. Moore’s politics to find that his shtick has become disagreeable with age,” the New York Times‘ Jesse Green wrote. “‘The Terms of My Surrender,’ which opened on Thursday at the Belasco, is a bit like being stuck at Thanksgiving dinner with a garrulous, self-regarding, time-sucking uncle. Gotta love him — but maybe let’s turn on the television.”
“Audiences hoping for a bit of feel-good liberal therapy, let alone a good show, may be disappointed to find that Mr. Moore isn’t very interested in them. He’s not preaching to the choir: He’s bragging to it,” Green added.
“Michael Moore looked like a fish out of water — or was it a deer in headlights?” the Los Angeles Times‘ Charles McNulty wrote.
Well, that’s a shame. Liberals are supposed to be good at art. They’re the ones who write librettos, compose poetry, paint pictures, and sing songs, all while conservatives pay taxes to support them. That’s the traditional arrangement anyway.
But rather than provide an actual usable blueprint for the Democrats to pick their battered party up off the ground, Moore went for petulant self-indulgence.
Like I said before, if Moore’s the resistance, President Trump has nothing to fear.
