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 auto into a counter-protest march.
After President Donald Trump doubled down on his assertion that "both sides" were responsible for the deadly violence at a white supremacist march in Charlottesville on Saturday (Aug 12), scores of celebrities have taken to social media to excoriate his response. Back when we fought World War II and there were two sides, it was the Nazis and the rest of the world trying to stop them, and that's where we find ourselves in America today, sadly.
He felt compelled to go after hearing Trump's most recent comments on Charlottesville.
Moore said during Tuesday night's demonstration, which took place alongside the protests that kicked off earlier in the day as Trump returned to NY, that the press conference "really showed me that this guy is not just crazy-he has an agenda, and he's mad that he said what they made him say, and he walked it all back".
A day earlier, Duke had posted a video mildly criticizing Pres. Trump's prepared statement, saying "President Trump, please, for God's sakes, don't feel like you've got to say these things". Trump said. "You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent".
"You want him impeached?"
In an August 15 interview with CNN's Don Lemon, filmmaker Michael Moore likened supporters of President Donald Trump to rape enablers (video below). "He knows exactly what he's doing, he knows the words to use, and I'm certain that the 63 million people who voted for him, actually the vast, vast majority loved that press conference". Stand up for America!
Moore emphasized that nearly two-thirds of white men and a majority of white women voted for Trump. "I mean let's just, really, let's cut the BS and start speaking honestly".
