Michael Moore was busy stalking President Obama’s whereabouts Wednesday since his hometown of Flint, Michigan, is undergoing a major crisis surrounding lead-contaminated water.
Comparing Obama to George Bush, who presumably flew over New Orleans after hurricane Katrina, Moore sent Obama a message:
PresObama: R u enjoying the nice cars at the Detroit Auto Show? Your plane leaves in an hr. FLINT! We’re right here. pic.twitter.com/XRz3KyfgsA

Obama was visiting Detroit when he apparently overlooked stopping in nearby Flint to take a tour — or provide a photo-op for attention-seeking Moore.
Hours later, when reality set in, Moore, apparently feeling dissed and dismayed, vented his frustration on Twitter.

You can almost hear the violins playing in the background.
While Moore felt sorry for himself, others, with more grounded perspectives, offered some harsh lessons of reality. (Warning for strong language.)

@MMFlint I’m sure his fridge on the plane is filled with clean, bottled water. He’s got everyone’s back-from a safe distance

@MMFlint He doesn’t give a fuck. Never has, never will. Seat of power is all that matters. People, not so much.

@MMFlint just figured that he doesn’t give a shit, eh? If he did show up, some might have asked why EPA did nothing despite knowing of prob

@MMFlint I thought for sure there were enough muslims there that he could care about

There was also a healthy dose of Obama supporters who blasted Moore for the tweet; either way, the mega-liberal couldn’t win:
@MMFlint Such an unfair tweet.

@MMFlint please STFU, you don’t give a damn bout the situation, just exploiting it.

@MMFlint Really Michael..I always give you props but I think PBO gets enough crap..I’m not amused..

@MMFlint did you consider he didn’t want to make it about him, which the right-wing freaks would have done
