Celebrities rushed to social media Friday to celebrate the news that the Robert Mueller-led Special Counsel investigating President Donald Trump’s campaign announced a plea hearing for former National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, who has reportedly entered a guilty plea and is set to testify against Trump.

Outspoken Trump critic Rosie O’Donnell tweeted the hashtag “Best day ever” with a screenshot depicting breaking news alerts about Flynn.

Flynn has been charged with lying to the FBI, according to court documents released by the special counsel.

“On or about January 24, 2017, defendant MICHAEL T. FLYNN did willfully and knowingly make materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements and representations in a matter within the jurisdiction of the executive branch of the Government of the United States,” the documents said.

Star Wars star Mark Hamill tweeted: “If you guessed Michael (“Fear of Mueller is Rational”) Flynn as the next to go down- CONGRATULATIONS! (you’re even closer to a #TraitorBINGO!) Wonder how the “#POTUS” will strategize & pick his next move?”

Hamill’s tweet included the hashtag that spelled out the phrase “All I Want 4 Xmas Is 4 Santa 2 Lock Them Up LOCKTHEM UP.”

Actor Jeff Daniels tweeted, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.”

Flynn appeared Friday at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia where he entered his guilty plea, as part of a plea deal.

Below is a roundup of all the celebrity reaction, from gloating to the outright praise of Mueller.
