'We're all in the same boat' _ Michael Moore preaches unity

NEW YORK — Michael Moore showed his patriotism by marching down the Avenue of the Americas with a drum and fife corps after making his Broadway debut.

"I say this to the people who disagree with me, we're all Americans. We're all in the same boat, and we're going to sink or swim together. I prefer not to sink. So let's find a way, if we can, to work together to save this country," Moore said Thursday night.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker starred in the one-man show "The Terms of My Surrender" and then walked arm-in-arm to a party afterward with a variety of celebrities, including Christie Brinkley, Rosie O'Donnell, and Gloria Steinem.

The 63-year commentator and liberal activist made it clear that his show is aimed at his supporters, and not an attempt to open a dialogue with Donald Trump supporters.

"I'm here to preach to the choir, because the choir needs a song to sing. The choir has been severely depressed since November, and it's time to rise up and get out of it. Snap out of it. We're the majority. This is our country. We hold the reins, now we want the power back," Moore said.

While Moore's nightly 90-minute tirade puts his disdain for the president front and center, he also tackles other hot-button topics such as the Flint water crisis, race relations, and the latest restrictions from the Transportation Security Administration. Moore tweaks each performance to address the headlines of the day.

He feels humor is the best way to tackle worrisome issues. "It is scary and sometimes satire is our only way to get through the horror and find a solution to make things better," he said.
