Michael Moore calls Barack Obama drinking Flint water 'disappointing'
Michael Moore is not impressed with President Barack Obama's visit to Flint today.
Moore, the 62-year-old Flint native and documentary filmmaker, joined CNN earlier this afternoon to discuss Obama's pledge to Flint -- saying "I've got your back" while drinking a glass of filtered Flint water -- and why he's upset with that message.
"He is just trying to reassure people that everything's okay," Moore said. "To drink from a glass of Flint water when a number of experts are still saying this water's not safe? It's still going through the same corroded lead pipes? It was such a disappointing thing to see.
"Your clip you just showed about he hopes that Flint can get back to where it was. Where was that? You mean before the water crisis two years ago, after we'd lost 75,000 General Motors jobs? Back to then? Or are we talking about back to 20-30 years ago? I mean, Flint is a city that's really been destroyed."
