As President Trump delivered his State of the Union address on January 30, Hollywood expressed its outrage that Trump actually followed tradition and spoke to the people. Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Wil Wheaton posted before the address: “Tonight, Shitler is going to read a speech filled with lies and falsehoods. He will say things that sound reasonable, but won't mean any of them. Pundits will declare him to be Super Totally Presidential For Real This Time. Do not be fooled. He is a liar, a racist, and a disgrace.”

While the world was clamoring for alleged sex harasser Al Franken to resign from the Senate on December 7th, Hollywood was at a loss as to how one of their own could be crashing. Just hours before Senator Franken told the Senate that he would resign, angry feminist and Trump resistor Rosie O’Donnell tweeted multiple times in support of the senator from Minnesota. The actress tweeted the hashtag #stayAl, and retweeted a Hill story speculating on Franken’s resignation, saying “I HOPE THIS IS FAKE NEWS.”
SMILF continues its attack on Christianity in the November 27 episode "Deep-Dish Pizza & a Shot of Holy Water," but this particular episode of the Showtime series takes it to another level when it's suggested, less than a month before Christmas, that the Virgin Mary's Immaculate Conception of Jesus Christ was rape.
It was the year of the F-bomb -- every single one of them aimed at the president of the United States. It’s been 12 months since the 2016 election and already at least 63 of the angriest Hollywood elites -- A-listers, has-beens, teen stars, rappers, and wannabes alike -- have delivered a collective middle finger to the president.
If there was a fancy Malibu rehab center for Trump Derangement Syndrome it would be jam packed with celebrities right now. Ten months into Trump’s first term Hollywood actors, directors, comedians and singers are STILL having trouble coping with life under President Trump. The following are the craziest examples of celebrities attempting to cope with Trump from the past few months:
Hollywood has its standards: President Trump isn’t allowed to politicize after a terrorist attack, but after a shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, actors and actresses can shred prayers, the NRA, and the GOP to bits and pieces.
Rosie O’Donnell’s best route to getting publicity is by bashing Trump. But late night talk shows can’t wait to hear her rant and rave.
Someone is still suffering from snowflake syndrome, so it seems. In an interview with W magazine, Rosie O’Donnell couldn’t keep Trump out of the discussion, focusing on politics and how she feels about the administration. News flash: she thinks America won’t last. O’Donnell stated: “I seriously worry whether I personally will be able to live through [his presidency] and whether the nation will be able to live through it and survive.”
Eminem’s rap lyrics used to be called “sexist” and “promoting rape.” Now it’s applauded as “beautiful” and “strong.”
The unhinged celebrity left is at it again. This time they are promoting a sick internet game in which people are encouraged to push Donald Trump off a cliff or into molten lava. On Saturday, the liberal Rosie O’Donnell offered her support, tweeting, “Push Trump Off a Cliff Again.”
It’s not just the press that are freaked out by Donald Trump. Talk show hosts and celebrities from Stephen Colbert to Robert DeNiro, Katy Perry and Rosie O’Donnell are losing their minds over the new president: DeNiro claimed Trump was worse than con-man Bernie Madoff: “He’s a pig”; Perry whined that Trump’s election brought “a lot of trauma for me”; Colbert infamously characterized Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin in the most obscene terms; and O’Donnell sounded like she was fomenting a revolution: “We have never had this kind of treasonous madness in power before. Desperate times - desperate measures.”
