On Thursday, activist and filmmaker Michael Moore released a trailer for his new documentary, "Fahrenheit 11/9" -- a play on his classic film Fahrenheit 9/11, which addressed the global crimes of the Bush administration.

In the new film, Moore appears to try and make sense of the seething national rage that propelled Donald Trump to power. At one point, Moore is left speechless when an angry white man pledges to commit violence for seemingly indiscernible reasons.

The Huffington Post published the trailer.
