The Rushmore Report: Hollywood Goes Nuts Over Trump Election


Hollywood joined the rest of America in watching the 2016 election returns with bated breath. The reaction from a largely liberal entertainment industry was one of shock. Judd Apatow lamented, “After the wonderful Obamas, it is going to be horrifying to see that awful family in the White House.” Here are the reactions of many of the mortified Hollywood stars.

Cher – “The world will never be the same.”

Rosie – “I am not scared – I’m sad. For all of us. For humanity.”

Madonna – “We must never give up.”

Lindsay Lohan – “Retweet if you want a recount.”

Christina Applegate – “We are heartbroken.”

Stephen King – “I am shutting down.”

Mandy Moore – “I am just absolutely beside myself right now. I can’t believe the way this thing turned. Trying to remain hopeful but geeez louise.”

Jamie Lee Curtis – “People are angry. People are broke.”

Bradley Whitford – “This is a call to arms.”

Jennifer Lawrence – “Do not let this defeat you – let this enrage you! Let it motivate you! Let this be a fire you didn’t have before. If you are an immigrant, if you are a person of color, if you are LGBTQ+, if you are a woman – don’t be afraid, be loud!”

Joshua Malina – “Somewhere tonight there’s a little racist, narcissistic, woman-hating, Jew-baiting kid who now knows that he can grow up to be President.”

Mia Farrow – “A racist President.”

Katy Perry – “The revolution is coming.”

Josh Charles – “I’m going to kiss my sleeping son and go to bed. Tomorrow I’ll keep trying to raise him right in a world that just got a whole lot scarier.”

But not all of the Hollywood crowd is going insane. A few actually supported Mr. Trump . . .

Stephen Baldwin – “God is moving – and America is speaking. PTL.”

James Woods – “Dear President-elect Trump, please seize this historic moment and make America a nation for us all.”

Steven Seagal – “Congratulations @realDonaldTrump for your stunning victory over your opponent! Looking forward to making America great again!”

Scott Baio – “Great faith in God works. @readDonaldTrump I’m proud to call you President of the United States of America. And First Lady @MelaniaTrump.”

Kirstie Alley – “Congratulations President Trump! Against all odds, against the establishment and even against most of the GOP, you did it!”

Piers Morgan – “Congratulations to my friend – an astonishing achievement.”
