Michael Moore: All Obama Will Be Remembered For Is Being The "First Black President"

"I got a feeling, know you, that you’d probably wish you were remembered for a few other things, a few other things you could’ve done.”

Award-winning filmmaker and political activist Michael Moore has been critical of President Obama in the past, but his frustrations with the administration's list of accomplishments boiled over in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter:

When the history is written of this era, this is how you'll be remembered: 'He was the first black president.' Okay, not a bad accomplishment, but that's it. That's it, Mr. Obama. A hundred years from now, 'he was the first black American that got elected president.' And that's it. Eight years of your life and that's what people are going to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, know you, that you'd probably wish you were remembered for a few other things, a few other things you could've done.

The Michigan native and one-time Obama supporter also said that he doesn't think Obama "saved Detroit," calling his entire presidency "a huge disappointment."
