Controversial filmmaker Michael Moore had a few choice words about President Barack Obama during a recent interview at the Toronto Film Festival.
“When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: He was the first Black president,” Moore said.
“OK, not a bad accomplishment, but that’s it,” Moore explained. “That’s it, Mr. Obama, 100 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 going 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, who was once a Obama supporter, also said that he doesn’t think Obama “saved Detroit,” and said his presidency was “a huge disappointment.”
