Celebrities are slamming Donald Trump for his tweets about Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. See Twitter reaction from Hollywood stars below.

Brzezinski and Scarborough are the co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” and they recently got engaged. They’ve had an up-and-down relationship with Trump, but have mostly panned him in the last few months, including on Thursday morning. And a short time later, the president fired back with rather inflammatory, insulting tweets.

He wrote across two messages, “I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

Within minutes of Trump’s attack, “Psycho Joe,” “Morning Joe” and “President of the United States” all became trending topics on Twitter. Most of the responses, including those from celebs, expressed disgust at the president for writing such tweets. Some threw disses right back. Rosie O’Donnell, for example, replied, “babyman @realDonaldTrump its not just joe and mika – the world hates u – and jail awaits u – and u suck at being human.”

Chelsea Handler, tweeted, “Like every woman you’ve married hasn’t had a face lift. U should also get one. And a body lift. And yes, w/this duck, its ok to man shame.” Chrissy Teigen wrote, “You are a national embarrassment. It’s like you have no idea how to even fake being a normal human being. You are the proud type of insane.” John Legend bluntly stated, “America elected a very sh*tty person to be President.” Star Jones said, “I’ve heard of ‘SunDowning’ effects of Alzheimer’s on folk but I swear ya’lls president is affected any time of the day or night. #pettyfool.” Albert Brooks cracked, “To say our president is not maturing is an insult. His latest woman bleeding tweet was above the neck only.”

Josh Gad reacted, “What was said this morning about @morningmika & @JoeNBC by the President of the United States is disgusting, disgraceful & beyond the pale.” Tom Arnold retweeted a Melania Trump parody account, which commented, “I could not be more proud of my husband, our 45th president, for tackling the important issues of our day & helping my antibullying campaign.” Will Arnett retweeted a CNN producer, who noted, “Ivanka Trump this month: ‘There is a level of viciousness that I was not expecting. … I was a little blindsided by on a personal level.'” Eliza Dushku tweeted, “Sickening. Just when you think he/it can’t get worse.. #nightmare.” Rainn Wilson simply declared, “Presidents should be kind.”

“Hey @IvankaTrump — Say something. This stuff has to stop,” pleaded Jedediah Bila. JK Rowling quoted Abraham Lincoln as saying, “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” Andy Lassner posted, “After today’s tweets by the President of the United States, the single most important job I have is to teach my sons to be gentlemen.” Jesse Tyler Ferguson told Trump, “My faith in our country forces me hope that even your supporters think this is in bad taste. I’m shocked by this new disgraceful low.” Mark Ruffalo replied, “You are the President of the USA and yet you gossip like a mean girl.” Elizabeth Banks suggested, “Silver lining of Trump tweets: teachable moments for young boys. ‘Don’t u ever act like that. Real men don’t speak this way to women.’ #Mika”

Emmy Rossum retweeted Jake Tapper, who said, “This reminds me: how is @FLOTUS’s campaign against cyber-bullying going?” Valentin Chmerkovskiy replied to Trump’s tweets with the face-palm emoji.” Rachel Dratch remarked, “Every time someone says the president is a child or a toddler all I can think of is I’ve never met a child who’s this much of a d*ck.” Willie Geist said, “Good time to remind you that @MorningMika is smart as hell, stronger than any critic, & a role model for what we hope our daughters can be.” Stephen King posted, “The president is a hurtful, bullying, boorish, ridiculous, undignified, childish asshat. And it hurts to say that.”

“Thank you @FLOTUS for working on cyber bullying,” Ike Barinholtz tweeted sarcastically. Paul Feig posted, “Hey, it’s the President of the United States, inspiring children and people worldwide with America’s greatness and shining beacon of hope!” Patton Oswalt joked that Trump was using his “Truman Capote voice.” Chaz Bono expressed, “I am so disgusted by this and @POTUS attempt to discredit our free press!So sorry @morningmika keep up great work.” Rob Reiner told followers, “Besides possible obstruction of justice & treason, we have a childish mentally unstable bully in the WH. We have 25th Amend. for a reason.”

And MSNBC said in a statement, “It’s a sad day for America when the president spends his time bullying, lying and spewing petty personal attacks instead of doing his job.” Brzezinski responded by tweeting a photo of a Cheerios cereal box that said “made for little hands.” That was apparently a dig at Trump’s insecurity over his hand size. For his part, Scarborough retweeted various comments on the situation, including MSNBC’s PR head, who had posted, “Never imagined a day when I would think to myself, ‘it is beneath my dignity to respond to the President of the United States.'” Gossip Cop will have updates.
