Michael Moore teases ‘secret project’ about Trump and Roseanne

Filmmaker Michael Moore has teased an explosive ‘secret project’ that will feature President Donald Trump and Roseanne Barr.  

‘I know Roseanne. And I know Trump. And they are about to rue the day they knew me…’ Moore wrote in the caption of a video tweet on Wednesday. 

The video shows Moore and Trump during their appearance on Barr’s 1998 talk show.

In the clip, Trump praises Moore’s 1989 documentary, Roger & Me, which reveals the regional economic impact of former General Motors CEO Roger Smith’s action of closing several auto plants in Flint, Michigan, in 1992.

‘It was terrific, I tell ya. I loved what he did,’ Trump tells Moore. ‘If I was Roger I wouldn’t have liked it. But I enjoyed it,’ Trump added.

‘I hope he never does one on me,’ Trump says, as Barr and Moore laughed. 

The Fahrenheit 9/11 director said on his website that he’s been ‘working on a secret project for the last few months’. 

He was said to be working on Fahrenheit 11/9, an anti-Trump documentary and quasi-sequel to Fahrenheit 9/11.

But in the wake of sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Moore decided he no longer wanted the documentary to be associated The Weinstein Company, according to blog Slash Film. 

The Weinstein Company had reportedly committed $6million to Moore’s film.

Moore’s tweet came just one day after ABC pulled the plug on Barr’s show, Roseanne. 

Barr came under fire after she tweeted a racist message aimed at former White House adviser to Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett.

She tweeted: ‘Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.’

Barr was responding to a comment about Jarrett, and claimed she was joking. 

Moore took to Facebook to address Barr's message, saying 'one down, one to go'

But then she deleted the tweet and issued an apology to Jarrett and ‘all Americans’.

Moore also took to Facebook to address Barr’s message.

‘So Roseanne Barr woke up yesterday morning & posted hateful, slanderous tweets about me, Valerie Jarrett, George Soros & Chelsea Clinton — and within hours, ABC fired her. 

‘The same ABC who hired her after years of her posting other tweets saying Hillary was running a child sex abuse ring out of a pizza restaurant in DC, that the Clintons had murdered people, and anyone who criticized Benjamin Netanyahu was a Nazi,’ Moore wrote. 

‘The same Roseanne who referred to black people (even back then) as apes, and Arabs as, well, every racist thing you can imagine. That Roseanne. Like Trump, went on a Wild White Racist tear during the Obama years,’ he added.  

The Oscar-winning director then issued a warning to Barr.  

‘Roseanne, the viscous slur at me you retweeted yesterday — if I had the time I’d sue you and drain you of every dime you have. But I’ve got a better idea. As they say in the movies: one down, one to go,’ he wrote.
