WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 latest documentary film explores on the father-daughter relationship of Donald and Ivanka Trump.
The filmmaker muses that Ivanka Trump may have allegedly been abused by her father, Donald Trump.
Moore questioned why Trump was given a pass on being “handsy” on her daughter in national TV.
Fahrenheit 11/9, the newest documentary film by Michael Moore takes a critical view at President Trump’s disturbing sexual comments about her daughter Ivanka Trump. This has led to the filmmaker’s speculation that she “may have been a victim” of child abuse at the hands of her father.
Moore attended the premiere showing of his documentary at Ryerson Theater during the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival on September 6 in Toronto, Canada.
ET Canada’s Roz Weston asked Moore if he knew more than they do, with regards to the president’s relationship with his daughter, including memes of Trump, and other questionable pictures of the two.
“I’m seeing what you see, except I’m not making a joke out of it. I don’t think child abuse is a joke,” replied Moore. Then Moore went on to make a shocking claim: “If anything, Ivanka may have been a victim here.”
He offered a scenario as he explained. “If I were a teacher in a public school, and a 13-year-old student of mine, a girl, came to me and said, ‘My dad, every time he describes me, he says I’m voluptuous, and he tells people if I wasn’t his daughter he’d be dating me.’ And showed you pictures of her on his lap, kissing him, you as a teacher, by law, is required to report that to Child Protective Services,” Moore continued.
Moore questioned why Trump was given a pass on being “handsy” with his daughter on the “Howard Stern” show. He also allowed magazines to take pictures of her on his lap and kissing him. Moore said Trump’s hands were always too low on the hips and too high on the chest, as a child.
“What dad do you know that describes his minor child as ‘voluptuous’? Or is she wasn’t his daughter, he’d be doing this to her. Who talks like that?” asked Moore.
When asked if he looks forward to Trump’s response to the film’s scrutiny of his relationship with his daughter, Moore said that he’s not looking forward to it.
“I hope he has a response because I think it’s one piece of what makes him a truly evil person,” he added.
During the Wendy Williams show in 2013, Trump was asked what he and his daughter had in common.
The future president jokingly replied, “Well, I was going to say ‘sex’, but I can’t relate that to her.”
So far, no evidence came up that Trump abused his daughter.
