'TEARS OF JOY': Celebs React to Trump Verdict

May 31st, 2024 11:58 AM

As I’m sure you’re all aware, former President Donald J. Trump was found guilty on all 34 counts in his so-called “hush-money” trial. As a result, celebrities all over the place reacted to the verdict in predictable fashion.

“Comedian” Kathy Griffin shared a few tweets on X. “Thank you” she wrote while tagging Stormy Daniels. “He is awful,” she wrote in another tweet before saying “TEARS OF JOY.”

If you don’t remember, Kathy Griffin was the freak that posed with a bloody decapitated Trump head back in 2017. As a matter of fact, she was fired from CNN over it, so this “TEARS OF JOY” response regarding the verdict is unsurprising. 

Singer Barbra Streisand wrote “Hallelujah! TRUTH WON. I hope Trump’s constituents keep their word when they said they wouldn’t vote for him if he was convicted,” the morning after the verdict came out.

Author Stephen King replied to Tucker Carlson’s tweet about the verdict. “Sorry, Tucker,” King wrote on X. “He did this to himself, having sexual intercourse with a porn star. Crookedy-crook-crook-crook.”

To nobody’s surprise, washed up actor and director Rob Reiner wrote, “Donald Trump is a Convicted Felon. Now it’s up to the the voters of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania to make sure that a Convicted Felon does not become the President of the United States.” 

Witch and actor Bette Midler cheered, “GUILTY ON ALL CHARGES!!!!” And actor John Leguizamo wrote, “We are all cheering for justice that no one is above the law!”

Mark Hamill, actor (kinda), posted a graphic that had the word “GUILTY” in red written all over it.

On the contrary, some celebrities used the opportunity to question the legitimacy of our justice system. 

X CEO Elon Musk wrote that “Great damage was done today to the public’s faith in the American legal system. If a former President can be criminally convicted over such a trivial matter – motivated by politics, rather than justice – then anyone is at risk of a similar fate.”

Caitlyn Jenner, transgender father of the Jenner girls and former Olympian, agreed with Musk’s statement saying “Thank you! 1000%.” In a separate tweet on Jenner’s own X page, the celebrity wrote, “An outrageous day for America. The entire process has been outrageous, of course. Shame on the state of New York. Shame on the corrupt DOJ.”

I can’t wait for the sentencing, scheduled for July 11, to see what these loonies have to say then!
