The left-wing Hollywood celebrities were fuming as President Donald Trump accepted his party’s nomination on the final day of the Republican National Convention. Not only did left-wing stars lash out at the commander in chief, they also singled out first daughter Ivanka Trump and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani for their nastiest insults.
“Here comes the asshole,” Rosie O’Donnell tweeted as her president took the stage at the White House late Thursday. The outdoor ceremony on the South Lawn triggered celebrities who complained about the lack of social distancing. Actress Mia Farrow compared it to Jonestown — “an adoring cult waiting for Jim Jones to appear.” The West Wing star Bradley Whitford called it a “desecration” of the White House.
Other left-wing celebrities to fling mud on the RNC’s last night include Alyssa Milano, Rob Reiner, Dave Bautista, and bestselling author Stephen King.
Actor-comedian Jim Gaffigan swooped in to defend Joe Biden from claims that he’s a socialist and to decry the president’s speech as “all lies to scare” Americans. “to those of you who think Im destroying my career wake up.
Please dont buy that socialist crap either. Obviously Obama wasn't a socialist. This is all lies to scare you and you know it. Biden is not radical. Are you serious?

“And I could see the pain in my father’s eyes as he said…”
— Julie Cohen (@FilmmakerJulie) August 28, 2020
I have met @IvankaTrump a few times. In 2015, when she guest judged a show I hosted, she told me I was her hero.
I’m sad to see her now. #RNC2020 #TeamJoe #TrumpChaos

The @senatemajldr is actively lying to you right now.
He does not care about you. If he did he would hold a vote in the senate for the #HeroesAct.
As you prioritize voting @realDonaldTrump out, please #VoteBlue up & down the ballot ESPECIALLY if you’re in Kentucky.#RNC2020
