Stars are mocking and slamming Donald Trump Jr. for his tweets during the James Comey Senate hearing. See the reactions from celebrities below.

As Gossip Cop has reported, on Thursday celebrities have been reacting to Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. While under oath, he’s discussing his dealings with the president, Russian meddling in the presidential election, and the investigation into Michael Flynn. While Trump Sr. has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on social media as the proceedings take place, his eldest son has fired off a number of tweets ripping Comey.

Trump Jr. essentially live-tweeted as he watched the hearing unfold, writing comments like, “Hoping and telling are two very different things, you would think that a guy like Comey would know that. #givemeabreak.” He said in another, “So if he was a ‘Stronger guy’ he might have actually followed procedure & the law? You were the director of the FBI, who are you kidding?” In a different post, the First Son summed up the testimony has a “#NothingBurger.”

Hollywood stars, however, did not think the hearing was revealing “nothing,” and took issue with the younger Trump’s remarks. Katie Couric initially alerted followers, “Donald Trump Jr. weighing in… #ComeyTestimony.” And then upon seeing a years-old tweet from him about lactation and being a “boob guy,” she exclaimed, “oh my.”

“Hahahahaha! Shhhhhhhh,” Alyssa Milano replied to Trump Jr. Andy Cohen told him, “Sweetie he thought your dad was a liar.” And John Cusack wrote back, “Shhh- [Don] your daddy’s. Going down.” Retweeting a screengrab of the tweetstorm, the actor further declared, “He better lawyer up too – assh*le.”

And he agreed with those who wondered if the president was directing his sons to react online to the hearing. “He’s totally telling his kid what to tweet,” Cusack claimed, adding, “Can see him saying gimme that phone – running to bathroom to tweet under Eric’s name- totally see it.” Donald Trump Jr. has not responded to any of the celebrity comments on his tweets. Meanwhile, Chris Evans actually wrote on Twitter, “I’ve never wanted Trump to tweet so badly in my entire life. Pick your phone up! Do it!! DO IT!!!!” He later added, “Tweet, Donald….Tweet.”
