Michael Moore's new documentary Fahrenheit 11 / 9 portrays the tremendous consequences of the Trump era.

"Never has an assembly looked so defeated beyond winning the presidential post," says Michael Moore with his distinctive humor in a voiceover clip that shows the historically small group of people gathered in the Trump camp on election night in November 2016. Like everyone else, they believed until the last minute that Hillary Clinton would surely become the next president of the United States.

As we now know, this did not happen. Following the election results announcement, it became an easy joke to show cascades of clips, with political experts rejecting even the slightest possibility that Donald J. Trump would ever occupy the White House – as Moore does in his latest documentary. Nevertheless, this easy point is an important memory cookie. The Democrats were so confident in the victory that they did not hesitate to wipe out the only person who might have prevented the defeat: Bernie Sanders, who locally won the electorate but whose candidacy was obstructed by the party machinery.
