Michael Moore stopped by to promote his new film, “Capitalism: A Love Story,” and explained the security detail he brought with him by citing some people’s reaction to his infamous “We live in fictitious times” Oscar acceptance speech. ”The next day our home was vandalized,” he recalled of the 2003 incident. “People posted signs saying ‘Move to Canada’ on our trees.

The director admitted he has a galvanizing effect on people. ”When they see me on the street, they go crazy,” he noted before blaming conservative talk show hosts for telling people his films are filled with lies without ever actually naming one. “The opinions in my films are mine … but the facts are facts. I offered $10,000 to anyone who can prove there is a factual lie in one of my movies.

After discussing his new film and President Barack Obama, Michael then tackled his home life. “I’m actually a very conservative person,” he revealed. “I’ve been with the same woman for 30 years. We don’t let our daughter have a TV in her bedroom.”
