Left-wing Hollywood stars have spent the past two years spreading wild conspiracy theories about President Donald Trump and Russian “collusion,” with a slew of celebrities calling him a “traitor,” a “puppet,” a “thug,” a “urine-lapper” for Putin and predicting that he will be “in chains” soon.
Many Hollywood stars made these accusations following Trump’s press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland. Others accused Trump of treason for no apparent reason at all.
Yet, according to the Attorney General William Barr’s letter to Congress Sunday, special counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence whatsoever of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia during the 2016 election.
Here are 50 Hollywood stars who participated in the conspiracy smear campaign against the president.
“HE’S A TRAITOR; HE HAS SOLD HIMSELF, AND SOON HE WILL SELL US,” Bette Midler panicked in July.
"Asked if he trusted U.S. intelligence agencies which concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, HE SAID HE HAD BEEN TOLD BY HIS CIA CHIEF THAT IT WAS RUSSIA, BUT THAT HE SAW NO REASON TO BELIEVE IT."
HE'S A TRAITOR; HE HAS SOLD HIMSELF, AND SOON HE WILL SELL US.

Rosie O’Donnell, like many in Hollywood, called Trump’s summit a “#TreasonSummit.”

“Arrest Trump when Air Force One lands. I want to see him in chains,” filmmaker Michael Moore said.
Trump: “They (my intelligence officers) said, ‘I think it is Russia.’ I have President Putin (standing here). He just said it is not Russia. I will say this: I do not see any reason why it would be (Russia).” Arrest Trump when Air Force One lands. I want to see him in chains.

Late-night hosts went nuts, with CBS’ Stephen Colbert calling the Helsinki meeting “treasonous.” Jimmy Kimmel also piled on Trump at the time, and has since repeated the insinuation that Trump has committed treason. The View‘s Joy Behar also accused Trump of “treason” over the press conference with Putin.
In December, TBS late-night crank Samantha Bee also repeated the “treason” smear against the commander-in-chief.
Since 2017, HBO’s Bill Maher has made similar accusations against Trump, which he repeated this year.
Trump can’t demand that everyone stand for the flag if he colluded with a foreign Gov't to subvert the very democracy that flag represents. pic.twitter.com/6uomqdqLKQ

Rob Reiner also recently accused Trump of treason, saying in an unhinged social media post that the president is “committing Treason against The United States of America.”
“He is aiding and abetting the enemy in The War against Isis and The Cyberwar against Russia. He has turned the world’s oldest Democracy into a wholly owned subsidiary of Vladimir Putin. GOP, WAKE UP!”

In one of his deranged social media posts last month, Jim Carrey accused Trump of “child imprisonment, money laundering, racism, misogyny, infidelity, environmental rape, and high treason.”

Actress-turned-activist Debra Messing accused Trump of “putting PRO-RUSSIA agenda BEFORE the United States best interests” in September.

“Putin is giving trump talking points and actions to take to help undermine the very country he is from. We have a domestic enemy running our country pissing on about allies who shows fealty only to Putin. This is not America. This is Russia,” Netflix host Chelsea Handler said last year.

“To think Putin only has a pee tape at this point seems unrealistic. I mean, Trump is certainly a urine-lapper (I mean, how else did he get HIS nickname, #UrineLappingDonny), but for Trump to be this submissive to Putin, there must be something more. #TreasonSummit,” disgraced filmmaker James Gunn said.

Author Stephen King accused Trump of being “in Putin’s pocket” because he congratulated his election victory.
Trump actually congratulated Putin on his re-election. Either he's in Putin's pocket, he's incredibly stupid, or both. I vote for both.

Even minor stars got in on the action. Rapper Ice Cube called for Trump to be arrested, calling him “Russian intelligence,” while Sons of Anarchy star Ron Perlman simply predicted that Trump will soon be “in chains”.

Putin stood on the world stage and said he helped elect Trump, and wanted Trump to win. This was LAST WEEK. And today Trump is claiming the Russians don’t want him to win. Is he ill!? Or just so sure that we’re all stupid? *He has made NO efforts to quell their interference* https://t.co/OHdh3LalYE

Today Trump sided with Russia. Russian interference with #Midterms2018 is a clear + present danger to our electoral system of government.
That is “adhering to their enemies” in the #Treason section of the Constitution, an impeachable offence.

Russia is all in on oil. The sanctions Obama put into effect cost them a massive deal and hurt their economy a lot. Trump immediately wanted to get rid of them and refuses to enforce new ones. If I were Putin with an asset like Trump it would be important to keep up appearances
