Michael Moore shares his personal history with both Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, who both starred in 2009's "Capitalism: A Love Story." In very personal terms, he addresses the possible fracture within the progressive movement and why we must move past this in order to ensure the defeat of both Donald Trump and the rotten system that produced Trump.
