Michael Moore Shows Off $10,000 Check to Support Trump 'Assassination' Play

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore is showing off his $10,000 check to the theater group that “assassinates” President Donald Trump in its production of “Julius Caesar.”

In Twitter posts, Moore (who is currently putting on an anti-Trump Broadway show) says he’s giving his entire advance pay to The Public Theater - and even posts a picture of the check.

Moore says he’s doing it because “conservative media bullied” corporate sponsors into withdrawing their support of the play that caused scandal by staging Trump’s “assassination.”

He says the theater group was attacked by right-wing media who claimed Trump’s on-stage assassination was “anti-Trump.”

As a result of public backlash against the play’s violent treatment of the president of the United States, both Bank of America and Delta withdrew their financial support of The Public Theater.

But, Time Warner stood by its financial support of The Public Theater - and taxpayers continue to fund it, as well, to the tune of nearly a million dollars a year.
