Michael Moore Participated In Anti-Trump Rally Allegedly Organized By Russians
Michigan born filmmaker Michael Moore was raised Irish Catholic. He says that his religious leanings contribute a lot to his current stand on politics and activism. However, Moore is more liberal than party-affiliated as the Catholic Church and its principles are not entirely partial to any brand of politics.

Furthermore, he has been particularly vocal about his distaste for President Trump. He even participated in anti-Trump campaigns after the election in November 2016.
In addition, Michael Moore in Trumpland received a lot of angst from the Republicans. His biting criticism of Trump and the Republican party has earned him a reputation in American politics.
Well before the election, Moore predicted a Trump's win. Still, he fought to mobilize Americans against voting for Trump in the presidential elections.
He attended a Russian organized rally
Government prosecutors on Friday announced the indictment of several Russians for meddling in the US elections. The individuals were accused of organizing anti-Trump rallies in hopes of sowing discord in the process. And the November 12th rally was one of them.
The adults of America have made every child fear they might be shot to death one day at school. It is time now for the adults to fear the children who are rising up, who will walk out & shut down these schools — and who will very soon be voters. Students! Revolt! We support you!

Moore was at the Manhattan event and even shared a video of himself and other protesters at the “Trump is NOT my President” protest. They marched all the way from Union Square to Trump Tower
The irony and the backlash
From accusing Trump of collusion with the Russians, Moore is now being accused of the same.

Was he aware of the connection?
Last year, Moore wrote on Facebook:
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what was going on: TRUMP COLLUDING WITH THE RUSSIANS TO THROW THE ELECTION TO HIM.
Just heard that Michael Moore participated in an anti Trump Rally thrown by the Russians. Where did he get the tickets to attend? Was it from the DNC, Hillary Clinton or her campaign? Just asking....... pic.twitter.com/pwRzyhcWNw

Why are Trump supporters making fun of Michael Moore for accidentally attending a rally Russians promoted?
If you attended a Trump rally, you did the same thing. The entire Trump campaign was promoted by Russians.

How are democrats going to spin Michael Moore attending an anti-Trump rally organized by the Russians?

Now, many Americans are wondering how Moore and the Democrats will explain the irony. And Moore is yet to make any comment on the situation.
