Filmmaker Michael Moore posted a video clip of alleged bombing attacker Cesar Sayoc at a rally for President Donald Trump last year, apparently singing "CNN sucks" with a group of Trump supporters.
The clip is a preview of Moore's current movie "Fahrenheit 11/9".
It was filmed in Melbourne, Florida, at the first Trump 2020 re-election rally, which took place just one month after Trump's inauguration in 2017.
Moore said that his instructions for the scene were do not to film Trump at the rally, but only the people in the crowd.
"My feeling was that, after a month in office, we did not need to hear anything else from Trump's mouth, we already knew everything we needed to know about him," Moore wrote Sunday. In a Facebook post that accompanies the clip.
"Those of us who needed to understand were our American compatriots, lost souls full of anger and possible violence, who easily fed a lot of lies so big and toxic that we wondered if there was ever a chance we could bring them from the dark side," he said.
Sayoc, 56, was arrested Friday for allegedly sending more than a dozen pipe bombs by mail to Democratic political figures and other Trump targets. The van he lived in was filled with Trump photos, pro-Trump slogans, "CNN sucks" and photos of the faces of Trump's critics marked with a sight.
"Needless to say, I was a little surprised to see that Sayoc had placed a picture with a crosshair on the side of his truck," Moore said in his message. Moore said police authorities have been monitoring a pipe pump they have sent him, but "so far, all right."
CNN's New York offices, a frequent Trump target at rallies, were evacuated last week after a bomb threat in a pipeline linked to Sayoc. CNN president Jeff Zucker said then that Trump and the members of his administration "should understand that their words are important."
Men like Sayoc, Moore said in his publication, "Trump told them they are at war … against the rest of us, the vast majority who believe that climate change is real, who unambiguously affirm that women are equal." citizens … and that require that all people have the right to cast their votes easily without any interference. "
Today "we mourn the last loss of life this weekend in Pittsburgh," Moore said, referring to the 11 killed by suspected gunman Robert Bowers in an anti-Semitic attack at the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday.
He concluded that the next "electoral tsunami of voters we bring to the polls" on November 6 "will end this madness."
