(CNSNews.com) – During an anti-Trump rally near the White House Friday, political activist and documentary filmmaker Michael Moore had a message for the crews of helicopters flying overhead.

“There’s no reason to keep flying over us,” he said, drawing laughter from the protestors gathered in McPherson Square. “The terrorists are about three blocks away!”

“You got nothing to worry about with us,” he continued. "All we have are some signs and a little weed. Oh, maybe that’s what they want – the weed!”

A group was handing out free marijuana joints in Dupont Circle to encourage President Trump to relax drug laws, and some at the McPherson Square rally were smoking joints. Distributing marijuana in the District of Columbia is legal; however, smoking it in public is not.

Moore encouraged the crowd to “form an army of comedy and satire” against Trump, arguing that he has “thin skin.”

“I want to see Trump implode from the constant ridicule day after day,” Moore said. “It’s like we don’t need to point out anymore the things that are just so obviously wrong about what he says or does.”

He also called for “a militancy of love and peace and kindness and tolerance and compassion” against Trump.

Moore made headlines the next day at the Women's March on Washington where he ripped a copy of Saturday’s Washington Post bearing the headline “Trump Takes Power.”

“I don’t think so!” he declared. “We are here to vow to end the Trump carnage!”
