Shortly after President Trump held a press conference during which he condemn "both sides" for the deadly violence in Charlottesville Saturday, Moore posted a message on Facebook inviting people to join him in protest outside Trump Tower Tuesday. "He's allowed these people, he's allowed facism, he's allowed the KKK, he's allowed Nazis to show their ugly face, and we're here to remind him there's a cost for that!"
Trump initially condemned acts of violence "on many sides" in Charlottesville, a declaration he later reiterated.
While reviews of Michael Moore's Broadway debut have not been kind, that hasn't stopped the liberal firebrand from stirring the pot when it comes to criticizing U.S. President Donald Trump, and he took things to a whole new level on Tuesday night - with the help of one of the Avengers. Police said one of the white nationalists plowed a auto into a crowd, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and wounding many others. Trump said to reporters during a news conference Tuesday at Trump Tower in NY.
Thirty-two-year-old Heather Heyer was killed and at least 19 people were injured after a driver, who allegedly had ties to white supremacists, plowed his auto into a crowd of counterprotesters.More news: Boston, Gillette Stadium On List Of Potential World Cup 2026 Host Sites

Also on Monday, white nationalist Richard Spencer - who popularized the term "alt-right" to describe the fringe movement mixing white supremacy, white nationalism, anti-Semitism and anti-immigration populism - told reporters that Pres. Trump's prepared statement "sounds like we might want to all bring out an acoustic guitar and sing "Kum ba yah". "You look at both sides, I think there's blame on both sides".
Moore, who led groups of people on buses to the tower, described the president's comments as "just very bad, disgusting".
Moore also addressed Trump's defense of the Charlottesville rally at the top of the show, when he usually discusses the latest headlines.
"Not all, I said the vast majority", he answered. You are culpable, white America.
