Michael Moore Enters Saturday Twitter War With Trump Over Saudi Arabia & It Is Awesome

Prominent liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore took to Twitter this Saturday to troll President Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia, and it would be glorious if it wasn’t so painfully on point.

Trump took his trip to the Saudi monarchy with little to no regard for the nation’s past of human rights abuses and with no apparent regard for the nation’s established, “socially acceptable” sexism. In fact, it’s pretty much a given that President Trump is not going to ever speak out as forcefully against Saudi-style sexism as his and his Vice President’s predecessors have.

After all, Trump has spent decades building himself up on a foundation of sexism, and he didn’t stray from that course during the campaign season.

As another issue, President Trump notably left Saudi Arabia out of the list of countries that he targeted in the creation of his repeated Muslim targeting travel bans. This flies in the face of the fact that the Saudis promulgate at least as much Islamic extremism as the countries that he did target, including having even been complicit in the 9/11 terror attacks.

Trump appeared ready and willing to put concerns for all of that aside, signing a deal to provide the Saudis with a massive cache of weapons in the name of “creating jobs” in the defense industry.

With all of this in mind, Michael Moore skewered Trump on Twitter this Saturday, posting a mock schedule for Trump’s time in Saudi Arabia.

He wrote, “Trump Saudi Arabia schedule Sun morn: 7am: Breakfast/Beheading. 8am: Melania “ceremonially” to be dragged out of car she attempts to drive.”
