Ever since President Trump was elected, Michael Moore tried to cash off of his success by insulting him. Moore is making documentaries, tv shows, and has even premiered his one-man Broadway show of him insulting President Trump. Maybe it’s a one man show because no one else wants to have anything to do with it? Even the New York Times, who agrees with his point of view, thought the show was pretty pathetic.
They started by writing how they love his politic. “Still, you don’t have to disagree with Mr. Moore’s politics to find that his shtick has become disagreeable with age. “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,” writes the New York Times.
““I’m not coming to this stage every night to conduct a political rally,” Mr. Moore told The New York Times in July. “This is not a kumbaya piece of theater.” That’s true: “The Terms of My Surrender” is not organized well enough to be either of those things,” writes the New York Times. Ha!
The NYT writes that the show tries to teach people how to ‘resist’ Trump in vague ways, but the only thing people learn to ‘resist’ is the play itself. “I actively resisted plenty of material that might otherwise be amenable to me politically,” writes the NYT.
They even called him out for being a hypocrite. “Mr. Moore’s valorization of the Midwestern working class from which he hails cuts against his claim that ordinary Americans, like the ones who voted for Mr. Trump, are stupid. “America,” he says, has been “dumbed down and now can’t think,”” they write.
