Michael Moore in TrumpLand

Synopsis: Oscar-winner Michael Moore dives deep in the heart of hostile TrumpLand territory with his daring, profound, and uproarious one-man show. When the show gets banned from the first town they tried, Mike moves on to an even bigger community of Trump supporters in the ironically-named Clinton County, Ohio. Performed, shot, and edited just weeks before the 2016 election, this heartfelt, honest, and hilarious concert film is essential election viewing for a divided America. With a title like Michael Moore in TrumpLand, you may think you know what's in store, but the film is sure to surprise. Entertaining, outraging, and informing in equal measure, no matter who you're voting for, this movie has something for everybody.

("When Johnny Comes Marching


- [Reporter] It's

Support the Troops Week

here in Wilmington, Ohio.

Plus it's Homecoming weekend

for Wilmington's

Fighting Quakers.

And don't forget the

big county Corn Festival

is just around the corner.

- If this is any indication

of how Mr. Trump's gonna do,

it's gonna be a

landslide for Trump.

- [Reporter] Also

a reminder about

that big Wilmington gun festival

which is going to be held

at the Roberts Center

at the end of the month.

- You wanna see my 357?

- A lot of people say

that Trump is a clown.

He won't be when he's president.

- Around here, I ain't

heard nobody for Clinton.

- [Reporter] And

speaking of guns,

and the people who want

to take them away from us,


filmmaker Michael Moore

will perform a one man show

tonight at the Murphy Theater.

- Trump lost $914

million dollars,

but he got out of a lot

of taxes for that, too,

so probably just a good idea.

- You know, he didn't

get it handed down to him

like Hillary did

from her parents.

- [Reporter] Ohio Republicans

have tried to block

Moore from performing

in the state,

with one local leader

threatening to cut public funds

for the theater if

the show goes on.

- I think it's gonna be close,

and I think that Hillary's

going to have dead people vote.


- [Reporter] There's no word

from the theater's benefactor

Conservative icon Glenn Beck

where he stands on the issue.

- Michael Moore needs

to go a little right.

- (laughs) He needs

to go a little right.

- He needs to go to the right.

- We put the word out,

we wanted all types of

people to come here tonight.

Do we have anybody here

who's thinking about

voting for Donald Trump?

(audience applauds)

Good, thank you, welcome.

And how many people here

are voting for Hillary?

(audience applauds)

Wow, so we've got a

good mix here tonight.

Trump voters, we've

got Hillary voters,

we've got people who aren't

sure who they're gonna vote for,

we've got people who

aren't gonna vote at all.

How about third party people.

Anybody voting for a

third party candidate?

Can I ask you where Aleppo is?

(audience laughs)

Just kidding, just kidding.

The only thing you need

to know about Wilmington,

it's the birthplace

of the banana split.

How about that, huh?

(audience applauds)

Hold the nuts!

(audience laughs)

Well, Wilmington, Ohio here

is the county seat of

Clinton County, Ohio.

The irony was not lost on me,

probably from the first

minute I entered this town.

It may be called Clinton County,

but it's not Clinton country.


I mean seriously.

Trump got four times

as many votes here

than Hillary did in the primary.

(light smattering of applause)


I mean I think in

part it's because

the people who are

more conservative,

Republicans, Trump

voters, whatever,

It's something I actually

admire about conservatives.

You have the courage

of your convictions.

You are relentless.

You're like, "This

is the way I believe!

"Damnnit, that's it!"

and we're like, "Well,

I, I don't know,

"I could think about it

a little bit and maybe."

(crowd laughs)

You know, these Trump

voters, my friends,

are gonna be up at five in

the morning on Election Day.

They're up at five

in the morning a lot.

The only time we see

five in the morning

is when we've been up

partying all night.

That's five in the

morning, yeah right.

(audience applauds)

Come on, everybody

in here has got

a conservative in

the family, right?

Many of you brought that

person with you tonight.

A brother, a father, an uncle,

a brother-in-law, a sister,

not a sister, I know, I

just threw that in there.

And they are the organized

one in the family.

They never lose their car keys.

The conservatives, they've

got little hooks in the,

by the back door, with

a label on each hook.

That's my Beamer key,

that's my F-150 key,

that's the key for the car

Mathew McConaughey drives.

(audience laughs)

Our side, we're like,

this is how we, this

is how we sound.

This is how we sound,

"So, uh, where do you

want to go eat tonight?"

"I don't care, where

do you want to go?"

"I don't know, wherever

you want to go."

"No, no, no you

picked last time."

"No, seriously

wherever you want."

This is right?

Like the conservative,

they're like,

"Get in the car, we're

going to Outback!

"Get in there!"

(crowd laughing and applause)

Decisive, organized, discipline!

You've got to admire

that about them.

(audience laughs)

No but, all kidding aside, as

it says out on the marquee,

Trump voters welcome

here tonight.

And I really wanted to invite

people who are thinking of

voting for Donald Trump,

might be leaning toward Trump.

So, I just wanna, as

a gesture of good will

to those of you who are thinking

of voting for Donald Trump,

tonight I've done something

to make you comfortable

in here amongst these

liberals, and Bernie voters,

and third-party people, and

undecideds and whatever,

and on the way in,

you might have noticed

the ushers asked Mexicans,

and Mexican-Americans

who were coming in

if they would sit in a

special Mexican section.

We've segregated

them out for you.

Where, oh there

you are over there.

We gave them their

own little, what?

She said she's from Guatemala.

Close enough.

It's, it's just so the Trump

people wouldn't be nervous
