(Newser) – Michael Moore led the audience of his Broadway play to Trump Tower on Tuesday to protest President Trump's comments about the deadly violence in Charlottesville. On Facebook, Moore urged people to join him at the tower following Tuesday night's performance of his one-man show The Terms of My Surrender to "nonviolently express our rage," per the AP. After the play, the 63-year-old liberal activist led a group of people on buses to the tower, where the president is staying for the first time since his inauguration. Moore was joined by actor Mark Ruffalo, who led a chant of "Heather Heyer," the name of the woman killed in Charlottesville. (See video of Ruffalo's speech.) Moore and Ruffalo held a candlelight vigil and urged the crowd to never forget Heyer and make sure she didn't "die in vain." (Read more Michael Moore stories.)
