“TOTAL BOMB”: POTUS Trump Trolls “Sloppy” Michael Moore For Broadway Show Failure
President Trump is deeply loyal to those who have his back. Just make sure you don’t get on his bad side, because it will not be forgotten.
President Trump is no fan of director Michael Moore and the feeling is mutual. In fact, it is difficult to find someone in Hollywood who suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome worse than Moore.
In a Saturday night tweet, President Trump ripped Moore’s failed Broadway show.
“While not at all presidential I must point out that the Sloppy Michael Moore Show on Broadway was a TOTAL BOMB and was forced to close. Sad”,” tweeted Trump.

According to the Wall Street Journal, ‘Michael Moore’s Broadway show fell short at the box office.’
After a 13-week run, the show only made $4.2 million.
Film director Michael Moore may have arrived on Broadway with the self-professed goal of taking down a sitting president. But in the end, his politically liberal-minded show, “The Terms of My Surrender,” which closed this past weekend, failed to wow at the box office. In its 13-week run, including a preview period, the show had ticket sales of $4.2 million, according to BroadwayWorld.com, a theater website that tracks grosses based on data from the Broadway League, a trade group. That figure represents only about 49% of the show’s potential gross. Mr. Moore’s largely one-man production started on a strong note, taking in $456,000 in its first full week. But it quickly fell well under that mark, with ticket sales dipping below $300,000 in some subsequent weeks.
