Michael Moore is teasing his controversial new documentary about the environment.
During an appearance on MSNBC Sunday, the filmmaker, 66, shared how the coronavirus pandemic is related to the themes of “Planet of the Humans,” which examines climate change and the green energy movement.

What do you guys think is happening?
Is Michael Moore making a brutal power grab, maybe even an eventual run at the Presidency, by putting down all his potential rivals as corporate sellouts?
Is “Planet of the Humans” an exercise in integrity, is Moore an honest man who is maybe dead wrong on a few issues, who can no longer stand the money grubbing hypocrisy of his green fellow travellers?
Or is there another explanation?
