Michael Moore Takes Audience of Broadway Play to Protest Outside Trump Tower
Filmmaker Michael Moore wrapped up his one-man show on Broadway on Tuesday night by leading the audience over to Trump Tower to join a protest against President Trump’s comments on Charlottesville. Moore announced the move on Facebook, saying he and his audience members wanted to “nonviolently express our rage” over Trump’s assertion that counter-protesters were partly to blame for violence at a white nationalist rally that left one woman dead and 19 people injured on Saturday. Joined by actor Mark Ruffalo, Moore and at least a dozen of his fans called for Trump’s impeachment, chanting, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go.” In a video of the protest, Moore and Ruffalo were seen weighing whether to invite former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci to join in, as he was apparently spotted having a drink nearby. They ultimately decided against it because he “still likes Trump,” Moore said.
