One month prior to any presidential election, each candidate dreads the potential release of an October surprise. For Donald Trump, the hits just keep on coming.

Moore on Trump

To the start the month of October, a leaked audio tape revealed Trump's private sexual thoughts during a 2005 hot mic moment with former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush. Since that time, multiple women from Trump's past have come forward, alleging that the Republican nominee sexually assaulted them at different points in time.

While that might be the October surprise many were waiting for, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore has one of his own. On Tuesday, Moore announced that he had been secretly putting together an anti-Trump film, with the release taking place at the IFC Center in New York City, before opening in Los Angeles later in the week. As reported by Yahoo on October 19, the film is sure to turn some heads.

Unlike Moore's previous political documentary films, "Michael Moore in TrumpLand" is more of a stand-up act than anything else.

Shot over the course of 11 days, Moore went to the conservative town of Wilmington, Ohio where he performed a one-man show to a largely Republican audience. Moore makes the case for a Hillary Clinton presidency, while focusing on Trump's appeal to mostly older white men. At one point, Moore cites that Trump's key, and really only, demographic is a dying breed, with older white men making up less than 20 percent of the United States population.

Moore does agree with one argument on the right, that Trump will rip apart and destroy the current status quo in Washington, but adds that he will bring everyone else down with him in the process. "Michael Moore in TrumpLand" will be soon be available on iTunes, presumably before Election Day.

Moving forward

Trump's entrance into the presidential race has highlighted the political divide in the country, that appears to have only widened since the election of Barack Obama in 2008. According to the most recent round of polling, Trump is trailing Clinton by nearly double digits nationally, putting himself in a position to lose by historic margins in less than three weeks.
