Celebrity supporters of Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign blasted FBI Director James Comey’s decision not to recommend charges be brought against Hillary Clinton after an investigation revealed that she sent classified materials held on private email servers during her tenure as Secretary of State.
Among the stars who took to Twitter Tuesday to air their frustration were longtime Sanders backers Rosario Dawson and actor Mark Ruffalo.
Ruffalo, an ardent Sanders supporter, simply said: “We’re in trouble.”

“Now that email investigation is behind us, can we focus on keeping the lying, racist, misogynistic fraud @realDonadTrump out of White House,” Reiner’s tweet read.
