President Donald Trump has declared that “the state of our union is stronger than ever before.”
As Trump, 73, discussed unemployment, the economy and more, those stars — and more — offered their opinions online.
“Where does he get the stats from? Stephen Miller?” tweeted Midler, 74. “He lies so much, why should we believe him tonight or ever? He THREW PEOPLE OFF food stamps, and didn’t ‘lift’ people off welfare, he kicked them out to join the homeless.”
“The horror is the point The cruelty is the feature,” said actor John Cusack. “…Trump is literally lauding himself for kicking 7 million people off of food stamps and millions more off of welfare. He’s proud that struggling families are struggling more. The GOP applauded him. SMH.”
“He literally has no idea what he’s saying,” said Natasha Rothwell.
Rosie O’Donnell chimed in, saying “oh my god where is the lie counter?”
“So many black folks for the #SOTU,” wrote actor Jeffrey Wright. “So few for positions of power.”
Wanda Sykes said that she’s avoiding the address this year, saying, “That j—-ss is not going to ruin my #TacoTuesday.”
Silverman, 49, simply said: “fearmongering pig.”
While many were in opposition, there were some stars that threw support behind Trump, as well.
“Democrats are seething as Trump introduces and lifts up and recognizes achievements of one Black person after another,” tweeted Woolery, 78.
Actor Robert Davi joined in on the conversation, saying, “GREAT NEW LAW BY @POTUS @realDonaldTrump PROTECTING LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AGAINST THE CRIMINALS IN SANCTUARY CITIES LIKE SOME IN CA – here that STINKY NEWSOM @GavinNewsom.”
