Liberal Hack Michael Moore Humiliated After Ticket Sales Numbers Come in

Poor Michael Moore. During the Bush years, the everyman socialist was the hottest documentarian there was. Alas, the Leni Riefenstahl of the Midwest experienced diminishing returns during the Obama years, as the left seemed to move on from his particular brand of manipulated outrage.

Of all of the people on the left who stood to benefit from Trump’s ascension, one suspected Moore would be one of the most prominent. He quickly capitalized upon this; during the campaign, he released a slapdash anti-paean to the then-Republican nominee called “Trumpland,” and once his subject was elected, he quickly moved to put the hamfistedly-titled sequel “Fahrenheit 11/9” into production.

He even did what all aging liberal stars do when they need to squeeze some quick money out of their remaining fan base: put on a one-man show on Broadway. Called “The Terms of My Surrender,” New York City theater goers can now spend an entire night with Moore.

His hopes for a quick Trump-fueled revival, however, were dashed more thoroughly than the day he found out that Fast Food Nation wasn’t an actual place he could expatriate himself to. The ticket sales numbers for the liberal hack’s one-man show are in, and let’s just say Max Bialystock and Leopold Bloom couldn’t have picked a better flop.

According to Broadway World, the show has been performing at less than half of its potential, even with a big name like Moore. And, according to Mediaite, things are getting even worse.

“People in the Broadway industry are taking note of the paltry sales and whispers are already circulating that the numbers for the week ending September 10th will put the show in the sub-$275,000 range which is… really, really bad,” the website, which isn’t necessarily known for its pro-Trump sentiments, noted earlier this week. “With the cost of theatre rent, advertising, salaries and fees, the show is losing money, Bigly.”

And even The New York Times, Moore’s target demographic if there ever was one, didn’t like it.

“Don’t get me wrong: Mr. Moore has led an exemplary life of progressive activism, both in the trenches and as a filmmaker. His early movies, like ‘Roger & Me,’ represent an impish moral intelligence at its most incisive,” Jesse Green wrote on Aug. 10. “Still, you don’t have to disagree with Mr. Moore’s politics to find that his shtick has become disagreeable with age. ‘The Terms of My Surrender,’ which opened on Thursday at the Belasco, is a bit like being stuck at Thanksgiving dinner with a garrulous, self-regarding, time-sucking uncle. Gotta love him — but maybe let’s turn on the television.”

OK, so maybe “The Terms of My Surrender” is just an aberration? Well, not so much. As The Daily Wire noted, “The Terms of My Surrender” is far from Moore’s only failure of late. His last two movies — the aforementioned “Trumpland” and “Where to Invade Next” — have both been unqualified disasters, financially speaking. Moore’s last box-office success was “Capitalism: A Love Story” all the way back in 2009.

That’s eight years and one president ago. Back then, the rotund propagandist could at least count on the left to come out to his movies. Now, it seems everyone from MAGA-cap wearers to antifa apologists has finally tired of his facile routine.
