Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that he’s running for president in 2016, and celebrities have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.

As Gossip Cop reported earlier, Trump made the announcement in New York during a press conference at Trump Tower. The business mogul has teased for the past couple years that he was going to run for the Oval Office, but now he’s finally doing it. The news is eliciting a range of responses from fellow stars, though most fall under the category of humor.

Before Trump even took the stage, Bryan Cranston tweeted, “What fun if Trump runs for pres. I’ll celebrate with Heisenberg’s Vodka. If he wins I’ll drink into a coma.” Then Albert Brooks joked afterward, “Donald trump announces this morning that he will run for president. His hair will announce on Friday.” And on the topic of hair, Olivia Wilde posted a picture of a lady parts wig, writing, “This merkin also has cash to burn and might as well run for president.”

Seth Meyers reminded followers that he make cracks about Trump at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and sarcastically said, “Obviously, he’s a lot more serious now!” John Groban revealed, “I’m protesting trump’s speech by eating a croissant in bed. CRUMBS DE LA RESISTAAAANCE!!” Meanwhile, Jay Duplass requested, “PLEASE let Don King be Trump’s running mate,” while Andy Cohen quipped about “Real Housewives” star and former “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant, saying, “I am looking forward to seeing which cabinet position Trump gives @NeNeLeakes.”

Andy Lassner, best known as Ellen DeGeneres’ hilarious producer, tweeting a conversation with his boss in which he quit because “making fun of Trump just became a full-time job.” On similar lines, Paget Brewster predicted, “Right now in New York: Wholesale Madness at @nbcsnl. Frantic Trump impression tweaking, papers flying, writers screaming…” Kat Dennings even said, “Literally thought Trump’s speech was a digital short.” And Audra McDonald wondered, “Where is the petition to force John Stewart to stay on as host of the @TheDailyShow now that Trump is running?”

And Alec Baldwin, who spent much of the day bashing Jeb Bush, amusingly tweeted, “What America needs is a strong, decisive president, who can fire people on a game show. Trump 2016!!!” Craig Ferguson even admitted, “Hearing Trump is running for president is the first and only thing that has made me miss late night. I’ll get over it but…damn.” The most serious reaction, however, came from Larry King, who tweeted, “I must stay impartial for #president2016 but having @realDonaldTrump in the race will sure make things interesting.” Gossip Cop will update with more reactions.
