Michael Moore Filmed Video Of Mail Bomb Suspect Cesar Sayoc Chanting ‘CNN Sucks’ At Trump Rally

Social activist and documentary filmmaker Michael Moore (Roger & MeCapitalism: A Love Story, Sicko, and Bowling for Columbine) took to Instagram to share some footage of Cesar Sayoc, the man allegedly responsible for mailing pipe bombs to prominent Democrats. Sayoc can be seen along with other Trump supporters chanting,”CNN sucks,” “Take our country back,” and, “Freedom! Freedom!”

Moore’s film crew shot the footage in Melbourne, Florida, at a Trump rally for Moore’s 2018 documentary on the aftermath of the 2016 election, Fahrenheit 11/9.

Moore wrote, in part:

My crew first encountered Cesar Sayoc, the mail bomber/terrorist, 20 months ago when we went down to Melbourne, Florida, to film Trump’s first “Trump 2020 Re-election Rally” — just one month after his inauguration. My direction to my producer Basel Hamdan and our longtime collaborator Eric Weinrib was to NOT film Trump, but rather only film the people who came out to see him. My feeling was, after one month in office, we didn’t need to hear anything more from Trump’s mouth — we already knew everything we needed to know about him. Who we needed to understand were our fellow Americans, lost souls full of anger and possible violence, easily fed a pile of lies so large and toxic that we wondered if there would ever be a chance that we could bring them back from the Dark Side.

Our footage of Mr. Sayoc would never make it into the final cut of what would be the film that is now in its last week in cinemas across America. But I’d like to share it with you, if only to give you a momentary glimpse of him in action (all are free to use this video and share it). You’ve seen the photos of him on the news over the past couple days– a slight, normal, everyday American. But those are from before. Here with our footage I can show you what he had actually become — overdosed on steroids in what looks like some desperate attempt to hang on to what was left of his manhood. Men, people like Cesar have been led to believe, were and are under attack by the likes of Hillary and Michelle and all those “feminazis” who’ve had but one mission: political castration. The theft of power from the patriarchy that had been in place for 10,000 years. The end of men…[1/3]

Moore released the unseen footage on YouTube. Sayoc appears around the 45-second mark.

Moore’s followers found the mob disturbing.
