Controversial documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is not one to mince words. While speaking at the Toronto Film Festival, Moore didn’t hold back his opinion on President Barack Obama’s legacy.
"When the history is written of this era, this is how you'll be remembered: he was the first black president," Moore said according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Moore went on to say while that’s not bad, he’s sure the president wishes he would be remembered for a few other accomplishments.
Moore doesn’t seem confident that any such milestones will be achieved during the rest of Obama’s term.
Moore is known for his political activism. He strongly supported Barack Obama for both of his presidential campaigns. But Moore has become disillusioned with the Obama administration over issues like the NSA leaks, campaign financing and drone strikes.
