Hollywood celebrities were glued to their TVs as the Senate kicked off its impeachment trial of Donald Trump on Tuesday. The stars took to social media to live tweet their feelings, which included contempt for Trump’s defense team and a desire to see the former president convicted as early as possible.
Celebrities including anti-Trump stalwarts Rob Reiner, Alyssa Milano, Bette Midler, Debra Messing, George Takei, Rosie O’Donnell, Barbra Streisand, and Patricia Arquette led the hate parade during the trial’s first day.
Some of them stooped low enough to make fun of Trump’s defense attorney David Schoen for touching his head as he drank from a glass of water — a religious custom for some observant Jews.
As Breitbart News reported, lead House impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), a Trump impeachment enthusiast for four years, argued Tuesday that it is lawful to impeach a former president, while Trump attorney Schoen declared that the trial is a politically motivated affair, adding that Trump hasn’t been given due process under the law.
Alyssa Milano tweeted that Trump attorney Bruce Castor is “making zero sense and is really bad about this.” Comedian John Stewart joined in the dog pile, joking that Trump was assigned “a shitty Public Defender.”
What the fuck is this Bruce guy talking about? He’s making zero sense and is really bad at this.
I can’t believe they assigned Trump such a shitty Public Defender.
Barbra Streisand — who campaigned for Joe Biden — tweeted that Rep. Jaime Raskin (D-MD)’s testimony about the January 6 riot “moved me to tears.”
Rob Reiner took the leaad in the Hollywood hatefest on Tuesday, declaring somewhat prematurely, “It’s clear. Trump has no case.”
