Celebrities are reacting to President Donald Trump’s rally speech in Phoenix on Tuesday, during which he railed against the “dishonest” media, which he claimed misrepresented his remarks about the bigotry and hatred in Charlottesville. He also touched on a number of other topics, including trade deals, Obamacare, North Korea and its leader Kim Jong-un, Arizona’s senators, and illegal immigrants. See Hollywood reactions below to Trump’s speech.

After Trump blamed the media for “fomenting divisions” and “trying to take away our history and our heritage,” a reference to the removal of statues of Confederate figures, George Takei wrote, “Trump in Phoenix: ‘They are trying to take away our history and our heritage.’ We all know the code he’s speaking. Disgraceful.” Meanwhile, Don Cheadle tweeted, “This man is a menace. Divider in Chief. Fear/hate mongering, shameful ‘leader.'” He included the hashtags “#ImpeachTrump” and “#PhoenixRally.” And Alyssa Milano taunted the president, “Oopsie! You forgot the ‘on many sides,’ @realDonaldTrump. #PhoenixRally.”

Jesse Tyler Ferguson joked, “This #PhoenixRally is basically the equivalent of watching a baby splash around in a toddler pool.” In a series of tweets, John Cusack expressed that Trump is “clearly mentally ill & unfit- removed in a straight jacket or cuffs – he’ll defecate on stage at a rally next – who would be surprised?” He continued, “Really he’s foaming at the mouth,” and “he’s a blathering maniac. Its a matter of public safety to have him removed asap.” “Weekly reminder of normal vs. not normal. A President holding an election rally in his 1st 8 months explaining he isn’t racist is not normal,” added Josh Gad.

Rosie O’Donnell sent a number of profanity laced tweets, including “‘ON MANY SIDES – ON MANY SIDES’ trump – u cowardly muthaf**ker – a national disgrace – u liar – mueller is coming for u – u stupid s**t.” She further slammed, “trump u pathetic piece of human waste – god will never forgive u – neither will AMERICA – u lying sack of s**t – f**k u and ur paid crowd.” And Albert Brooks cracked, “Watching Donald Trump’s hour long rant against the news. I don’t say this lightly but this guy is mentally ill.”

Josh Groban wrote, “Trump just said with a straight face that his ‘movement’ has always been about loving everyone and inclusion.” He followed that up with another couple of messages that read, “Trump rally cheerers and chanters, you are pawns for his ego. He wants your cheers more than he wants to work for you. It isn’t about you…. He’s sick. This speech is insane. He’s insane.” Samantha Ronson reminded her followers, “You know you don’t have to watch, right? #NotMyPresident.” And Dan Rather tweeted, “This was Trump as candidate, uncaged, unscripted, unabashed, and frankly unhinged.” Gossip Cop will continue to update as more celebrities react to Trump’s rally speech in Phoenix.
