Michael Moore is lining up celebrities for a pre-inauguration protest in front of Trump International Hotel and Tower in New York and defending Rep. John Lewis’ assessment that Donald Trump’s election was not legitimate.
Moore tweeted Saturday “Avengers” actor Mark Ruffalo and Alec Baldwin, who has been impersonating Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” would join him in front of the Trump-developed building about a half-mile from Trump’s residence in Trump Tower on Thursday at 6 p.m. to protest Friday’s inauguration of Trump in Washington.
Mark Ruffalo, Alec Baldwin & myself will be holding a massive rally in NYC in front of Trump International Hotel this Thursday, 6pm! Come!

Moore and his motley crew of D-list celebrities have repeatedly slammed Donald Trump since his surprise victory.
Moore and his comrades are still whining over Hillary Clinton’s loss, and are encouraging mass protests to disrupt Trump‘s January 20 inauguration. Moore has also urged Democratic lawmakers to obstruct Trump on Capitol Hill.
“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 urged his followers.
It’s unclear what Michael Moore is hoping to achieve with his protest next week, since his last protest (in December 2015, outside the Trump Tower) drew only a small crowd.
Moore will also protest Trump’s presidential inauguration on January 20. For his sake, he better hope he doesn’t run into Bikers for Trump, which is providing backup to the police in case riots break out.
“We are prepared to form a wall of meat [against protesters],” the group’s founder Chris Cox said. “We don’t condone violence. But in the event that we’re needed, you can certainly count on the Bikers for Trump.”
Twitter responded by saying Bikers versus Snowflakes is hardly a fair fight.

Others noted that contrary to what Michael Moore declared in his absurd protest sign, we are NOT “all Muslim.”
@AIIAmericanGirI re: 'We are all Muslim.' We all want to subjugate women? And kill cartoonists? And beachgoers? And Xmas party revelers? OK.
