The man accused of sending 14 pipe bombs to various political opponents of U.S. President Donald Trump can be seen in footage Michael Moore filmed for “Fahrenheit 11/9”.
Moore, 64, revealed unused footage his camera crew filmed for a documentary about the 2016 U.S. presidential election and Trump’s subsequent presidency.
The video shows Cesar Sayoc — who has been accused of mailing bombs to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and even actor Robert De Niro — amid a crowd of angry Trump supporters in Feb. 2017.

My crew first encountered Cesar Sayoc, the mail bomber/terrorist, 20 months ago when we went down to Melbourne, Florida, to film Trump’s first “Trump 2020 Re-election Rally” — just one month after his inauguration. My direction to my producer Basel Hamdan and our longtime collaborator Eric Weinrib was to NOT film Trump, but rather only film the people who came out to see him. My feeling was, after one month in office, we didn’t need to hear anything more from Trump’s mouth — we already knew everything we needed to know about him. Who we needed to understand were our fellow Americans, lost souls full of anger and possible violence, easily fed a pile of lies so large and toxic that we wondered if there would ever be a chance that we could bring them back from the Dark Side. Our footage of Mr. Sayoc would never make it into the final cut of what would be the film that is now in its last week in cinemas across America. But I’d like to share it with you, if only to give you a momentary glimpse of him in action (all are free to use this video and share it). You’ve seen the photos of him on the news over the past couple days– a slight, normal, everyday American. But those are from before. Here with our footage I can show you what he had actually become — overdosed on steroids in what looks like some desperate attempt to hang on to what was left of his manhood. Men, people like Cesar have been led to believe, were and are under attack by the likes of Hillary and Michelle and all those “feminazis” who’ve had but one mission: political castration. The theft of power from the patriarchy that had been in place for 10,000 years. The end of men…[1/3]
Sayoc can be seen multiple times in the video holding up a sign that reads “CNN sucks!” Moore has his own interpretation of why Sayoc supports the U.S. President and why he allegedly mailed pipe bombs to Trump’s political opponents.
“If you pause on him you will see something profound. Fear in his eyes,” Moore writes. According to Moore, Sayoc belongs to a group of men “led to believe, [they] were and are under attack by the likes of Hillary and Michelle and all those ‘feminazis’ who’ve had but one mission: political castration. The theft of power from the patriarchy that had been in place for 10,000 years.”
Sayoc can be seen at the 0:42, 1:34, 1:44 and 3:15 marks of the video.
