Michael Moore marches his Broadway audience to Trump Tower

Michael Moore, Mark Ruffalo lead theatregoers to protest at Trump Tower following Broadway performance

So it should come as no surprise that some of Donald Trump's famous (and wealthy) opponents went on a loud chanting protest in front of the Trump Tower on August 15, led by everyone's favorite wealthy protester, director Michael Moore.

In an interview on CNN following the protest, Moore elaborated on his reaction to the president's remarks.

Moore was referring to Trump's remarks Tuesday in which he condemned the neo-Nazi and white nationalist protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend at which 32-year old Virginia native Heather Heyer was killed when James Fields Jr. deliberately drove his vehicle into a counter-protest march. "I have no doubt about it, and you don't have any doubt about it either". Moore asked. "Let's cut the BS, let's start speaking honestly". The demonstration - which doubled as a candlelight vigil for Charlottesville victim Heather Heyer - followed the rally that took place the day before, when Trump first arrived in NYC.

Ruffalo took to Instagram to record a message to his followers, explaining that he and Moore, along with his Broadway audience were "going to walk the next three blocks down to Trump Tower to get as close as we can so he can hear us".

"Moore said due to Trump's, ".praise by hate groups like the KKK and neo-Nazis, the time has come for Republicans and Democrats to put aside our political differences and philosophical debates for a higher cause".

"America has to stand up", he declared. They were disheartened two days later, when Pres. Trump, facing huge bipartisan pressure, belatedly criticized their hate groups by name and called them "repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans".

"If you still support the racist, you are the racist", he said.

"If you still support the racist, you are the racist", Moore added. "Two thirds, sixty four percent, nearly two thirds of white men voted for Trump. I'm sorry, but there is redemption for you".

"America has to stand up", he continued. When asked by host Don Lemon if he believes Trump is a racist, Moore responded without hesitation. "We can no longer be mealy-mouthed about this".
