GOP Presidential Debate Twitter Reaction: Stars React To Republican Candidates
The second Republican presidential debate is taking place at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California on Wednesday, and celebrities are reacting on Twitter to the GOP candidates, mostly especially Donald Trump. See star reactions below.
The 11 candidates who are sparring are Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Donald Trump, and Scott Walker. The debate, airing on CNN, is being moderated as best as possible by the cable network’s anchor Jake Tapper. Joining him are CNN correspondent Dana Bash and conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.
As the debate began, Bill Maher tweeted, “To sum up opening statements: God bless America, too bad its such a sh*thole.” He later added, “Trump used to hang out with serious people like @LouFerrigno and @LaToyaJackson and now he has to share a stage with these losers. #Sad.” Arsenio Hall noted, “Does Sen. Rand Paul have a throwback Jheri-Curl? So distracting.” And Raven-Symone expressed, “#RepublicanDebate very well rehearsed so far.”
Seemingly pointing out how much of the debate early on were a series of personal attacks, Katie Couric wrote, “Would be great to hear specific policy proposals since 84% of Americans think there’s too much money in politics. #gopdebate” “Watching the #CNNdebate. Clearly no moderator. Politics 2015,” cracked Lance Armstrong. And Patrick Stewart mocked, “Donald Trump’s platform: I have made billions and I want to make the American people rich. Yeah, go, Donald. That’s why we have a President?”
Tara Killam joked, “Big money on Trump inviting Fiorina to join him in a three way post debate.” And when Jeb Bush praised his brother for keeping America safe, John Legend tweeted, “How do you get to say you kept America safe when you presided during 9/11? That’s a major asterisk.” Cher felt, “WOULDN’T WANT ANY OF THE REPUBLICANS ON STAGE IN REAGAN LIBRARY, HOWEVER THEY KNOW POLICY & R DRAGGING TRUMPS ASS.”
Kathy Griffin wrote, “Wow, these #GOPDebate candidates are scary. They can dress up their rhetoric however they want, but, um they just hate Mexicans.” “Having the #CNNDebate in front of Air Force One is distracting. I keep waiting for the cockpit crew to pop out,” tweeted Tom Bergeron. And Alyssa Milano noted, “Trump really does have an amazing resting bitch face.”
