Michael Moore is not a fan of President Trump, and he made his feeling crystal clear in his speech during the Cannes Film Festival Awards.
“Picassso said ‘Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth.’ Or, as we say in America, Trump is the lie that enables us, well, more lying," he said per Deadline.
“Art in dark times is what has helped saved humanity,” added Moore, “It’s the arts and the filmmakers who inspired the masses to not give up, to not despair, to think, to laugh at the madness, to mourn the loses, to rise up and defeat the insanity with love.”
This is not the first time that the 'Fahrenheit 11/9' director has criticized Trump.
Last year, during an appearance on 'Late Night With Stephen Colbert,' he said:
“Sadly, Trump is not going to leave,” he said. “He plans to be reelected, he loves the term ‘president for life.’ The only way that we’re going to stop this is eventually we’re all going to have to put our bodies on the line. You’re going to have to be willing to do this.”
