Celebrities React: Second Presidential Debate With Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton
As Gossip Cop reported, the second presidential debate between Trump and Clinton, moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC News’ Martha Raddatz, was held at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. Unlike the first debate, Sunday night featured a town hall format that allowed audience members to ask questions.
The overwhelming majority of celebrities tweeted in support of Clinton, while also taking jabs at Trump. Rosie O’Donnell kicked it off by writing, “think he wants to grab her pussy? #Debates2016.” Many stars also noted that Clinton didn’t shake Trump’s hand. Patton Oswalt remarked, “NO. SHAKE. Didn’t even acknowledge he was there. OMAR COMIN’. #debates,” and Sarah Silverman tweeted,”Oh sh*t no shake #debate.” Debra Messing expressed, “No hand shake!!!!! YES!!” And Emmy Possum also felt, “Good for you. I wouldn’t touch him with a 10 foot pole.”
A few mocked Trump for how he held his microphone. Judd Apatow wrote, “When you hold the mic too close to your mouth you sound like a sexual deviant on the phone.” And Seth MacFarlane offered, “Trump holds the mic like aging crooner.” “I guess his mic is messed up again. Because his sniffing is out of control. Oh and he’s horrible,” stated Christina Applegate.
Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain tweeted, “I feel sad that @HillaryClinton has to be a part of this disgusting circus #debates.” And John Cusack noted, “Trump is low energy tonight – maybe he feels shame.” Leslie Jones shared, “Ok I’m like Robert Deniro right now I want to punch that mf in the face!” Josh Gad spewed,”Hillary. Please take his f**king head off. America has your back.”
Chris Harrison wrote, “This is the most #Dramatic debate ever!!! But I do feel like I’m watching an #SNL skit.” “This is so unsettling #debate,” added Tracee Ellis Ross. Kristen Bell offered, “I’d like to apologize to the rest of the world. #debates.” “Hopefully someone is explaining all this to Melania right now,” cracked Chelsea Handler.
