They're not afraid to bash their fellow liberals if warranted. I truly believe Moore's best doc was Roger and Me. This is probably because I'm a Rust Belt dweller and he resonated with me. Some of his other ones were pretty good, but this last one sucked. There were way too many topics for one documentary. But yeah, he bashed the Dems just as bad as he bashed Trump.
Definitely too many topics.  It felt crammed with lots of liberal talking points that had nothing to do with the main theme of the movie.  But when he was focused, it was very good. 

His worst movie IMO was the healthcare one where he did the stunt of going to Castro's personal hospital in Cuba and trying to make the case that you were better off getting sick there than in America.  That was just filled with stunt after stunt and I wondered if he even remembered how to make a documentary.  But this was a good step back for him.  "Roger and Me" and "Fahrenheit 9/11" were really strong too.
