Hollywood celebrities went into full meltdown mode Tuesday before President Donald Trump’s address to the nation from the Oval Office on the crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Tonight the media will turn the oldest living Democracy into a reality show by allowing a pathological liar to treat American citizens like suckers. THERE IS NO CRISIS AT THE BORDER!” director Rob Reiner shouted.

Late-night host Stephen Colbert attacked his own network for deciding to air Trump’s address.

“My network will be carrying Trump’s Wall speech live. So at 9pm Tuesday, tune into CBS to See B.S.,” Colbert said.

President Trump announced his intention to deliver an address from the Oval Office on the issue of border security Monday. Many networks were at first unsure if they should air the address or not, but later, all major television news networks confirmed their plans to air the president’s address. In response, Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi demanded equal time for a rebuttal.

Other celebrities continued the meltdown. Comedian Sarah Silverman bemoaned networks airing “Drumpf’s blatant propaganda.”

“They want ratings AND integrity and you can’t have both. Not in this case. Nope,” Silverman said.

Bette Midler joined the meltdown, saying networks should air Trump’s speech “ONLY if they have the technology for an instant bullshit-to-English translation.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea Handler pleaded, “Please do not put this man on air. We have given him his power by bathing in his idiocy every day. Stop helping him.”
