Filmmaker Michael Moore is leading a massive protest of thousands on Thursday evening outside of Trump’s New York City International Hotel, alongside prominent celebrities like Robert De Niro and Mark Ruffalo.
The Hill reports that the protest started on the eve of the inauguration around 6 pm with De Niro “reading off imagined tweets” that he expected to see from Trump following his appearance at the rally, including “‘De Niro should give back his Oscars. Voting was rigged. There’s only one true Raging Bull and that is Vladimir Putin.”
A short time later, a host of celebrities including Moore, Alec Baldwin, New York Mayor Bill De Blasio, Ruffalo and Rev. Al Sharpton gave speeches to the masses in attendance.
Moore called for “100 Days of Resistance” and yelled, “With a lot of work on our part, we will stop this man.” He will not last four years.” He also urged massive protests for Friday inauguration and for voters to create their “own rapid response team” and form a resistance against Trump and the Republican-controlled House.
“If your rep is a Democrat, tell him/her you expect them to AGGRESSIVELY fight the Trump agenda — and if they don’t, you will work with others to support a true progressive in the Democratic primary in 2018,” Moore ranted.
Al Sharpton took his turn as well:
