Celebrities from Hollywood rushed to send their “thoughts, and prayers” after Russia invaded Ukraine on Wednesday. Stars took advantage of the crisis and attacked former President Donald Trump, while leaving out any mention of President Joe Biden.
Celebrities such as Barbra Streisand and Mark Ruffalo, along with George Takei, offered their support for peace with a few self-important but mediocre pleas. Rosie O’Donnell and Albert Brooks, Bradley Whitford and others took aim, accusing Trump of being on Vladimir Putin’s team.
Reiner tweeted, “Donald Trump is rooting for the murderer.”
“Exactly #ArrestTrump,” O’Donnell wrote.
After sanctions failing to stop Putin, President Biden is now trying to respond to his aggression with Hollywood emotions. Biden’s weak leadership is believed to have encouraged Putin to invade Ukraine, something that didn’t happen under Trump’s presidency.
Rob Reiner claimed that Donald Trump and the GOP were rooting for the murderer, but he didn’t provide any evidence. He was referring to Putin.
Bradley Whitford, West Wing star, offered his anti-Trump rant, declaring that Putin was his “object of affection.”
Rosie O’Donnell, Trump’s nemesis, bizarrely used Ukraine’s crisis to call for Trump’s imprisonment — something she repeatedly demanded over the years.
Albert Brooks, a Broadcast News star, used the crisis as an opportunity to revive the conspiracy theory that Trump was a Russian asset.
Judd Apatow, a filmmaker for This Is 40, used the crisis to suggest that Trump was working for Putin.
Disney’s Frozen star Josh Gad attacked Trump during a recent appearance at “The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show.”
Randy Mayem Singer, Mrs. Doubtfire’s screenwriter, falsely claimed that Trump and the GOP are cheering on Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
Rosanna Arquette suggested that some GOP members are Russian assets purchased by Putin.
Bette Midler, star of Disney’s Hocus Pocus 2, bizarrely used the crisis as a platform to promote climate change.
Stephen King, a novelist, appeared to be calling for war against Russia.
Jim Gaffigan, anti-Trump comedian, joked that Putin is the “new variant”.
Ellen Barkin, TNT’s Animal Kingdom star, appeared to be agitating for the seizing of assets of those with ties to Putin.
Others celebrities from Hollywood offered similar wishes in the form of “thoughts & prayers”
