Arguably one of the most anti-American filmmakers, Michael Moore is recovering from a days-long stay in the ICU after being diagnosed with pneumonia, even though “things didn’t look good” soon after he was admitted.
Moore revealed his health struggles, which led to the cancellation of multiple planned public appearances, in a pair of Facebook updates published Friday.
“Between running all over the place lately promoting my new movie … plus going to Flint to help the people of my hometown, plus jumping in to support Senator Sanders, plus doing a dozen other things – well, I read somewhere you can’t burn it at both ends, and if u do, it’s best not to do so in the winter nor anywhere near a place full of toxic water!” wrote Moore, 61.
“The truth is, I’ve actually been in the ICU since Sunday night. Let’s just say things didn’t look good Sunday night,” he wrote. “But thanks to a combination of good doctors, decent hospital food and 2nd-term Obamacare, I’m doing much better the last couple of days.”
Moore has also struggled with years of physical neglect leading to a problem of morbid obesity. It has been estimated that he has weighed upwards of 300lbs.
