Another day, another fervour caused by Donald Trump on Twitter.

This time the US President's target was Michael Moore’s Off-Broadway show “The Terms of My Surrender”.
The POTUS wrote: “While not at all presidential I must point out that the Sloppy Michael Moore Show on Broadway was a TOTAL BOMB and was forced to close. Sad!”.
The show, which had its last scheduled performance on 22nd October, closed after its scheduled 12-week limited run ended.
It grossed over $4 million (£3 million), making it the highest grossing, non-musical play of the summer in the United States.
On the final night of the show a press release stated that, far from being the last night, the show will tour the US in the summer of 2018.
In reply to the tweet itself, Michael Moore sent multiple replies including: “You must have my smash hit of a Broadway show confused with your presidency-- which IS a total bomb and WILL indeed close early. NOT SAD”.
The Terms of my Surrender is a one-man play directed by Tony-winner Michael Mayer.
It opened at the Belasco Theatre on 28th July and closed on 22nd October.
Following on from the last performance Moore proclaimed: "My 100 performances on Broadway represent perhaps the most fulfilling experience of my career."
