As far as liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is concerned, President Obama won’t have much of a legacy once he leaves the White House.
While chatting at The Hollywood Reporter‘s video lounge at the Toronto Film Festival, Moore let loose on Obama.
“When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: He was the first black president,” Moore said.
“OK, not a bad accomplishment, but that’s it,” Moore explained. “That’s it, Mr. Obama, 100 years from now: ‘He was the first black American that got elected president.’ And that’s it. Eight years of your life and that’s what people are going to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, knowing you, that — you’d probably wish you were remembered for a few other things, a few other things you could’ve done.”
Like many other liberals, Moore now views Obama’s presidency as a wasted opportunity.
