Oscar-winning documentary film-maker Michael Moore officially endorsed Bernie Sanders at the Bernie Is Back! rally in New York on Saturday. It was the 2020 presidential candidate’s first big campaign event since he suffered a heart attack earlier this month.

The Fahrenheit 9/11 director joined New York’s Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the rally held at a park in Queens, New York. 

Moore blamed political pundits and the media for making the 78-year-old politician’s age an issue by recycling tired “tropes.”

Moore said: “They are doing everything they can to throw everything they can come up with, to get people to think differently about Bernie. So what do they say? Bernie’s too old.”

“Yeah. Well, here’s what’s too old,” he continued. 

“The electoral college is too old. That’s what’s too old. A $7.25 minimum wage, that’s too old. Women not being paid the same as men, that’s too old. Thousands and thousands of dollars of student debt. What is that? Too old,” added Moore.


Moore won the 2002 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature for Bowling for Columbine, which examined the causes of the Columbine High School massacre and the overall gun culture of the United States. 

He also directed and produced Fahrenheit 9/11, a critical look at the presidency of George W Bush and the war on terror, which earned $119,194,771 to become the highest-grossing documentary at the US box office of all time.
