Michael Moore, the left-leaning, anti-capitalistic millionaire filmmaker who nonetheless tries to maintain a man-of-the-people image, has issued a scathing assessment of President Obama — simply that he’s a big letdown.

“He’s been a huge disappointment,” Mr. Moore said, adding that Mr. Obama is likely to be remembered as the nation’s first black president — and “that’s it,” he said, Newsmax reported.

Mr. Moore made the statements while speaking with The Hollywood Reporter at the Toronto Film Festival.

There, he also noted that falseness of Mr. Obama’s earlier claims that he saved Detroit.

“[He] did not save Detroit,” Mr. Moore said, explaining how he once penned a letter to the president that said: “You saved General Motors … Chrysler.”

Mr. Moore’s more complete statement to the press, as picked up by Newsmax: “Obama, sadly, has done many many good things but has been a huge disappointment. When the history is written of this era, this is how [he’ll] be remembered: ‘He was the first black president.’ Okay, not a bad accomplishment — but that’s it. … Eight years of your life and that’s what people are going to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, knowing you, that you’d probably wish you were remembered from a few other things, a few other things you could’ve done.”
