Trump's Address to Congress: Hollywood Reacts
Stars were quick to react on social media to the president's first address to Congress.
Following his first address to Congress, stars took to social media to voice their reactions to President Donald Trump's comments.
Trump addressed concerns about immigration, citing his controversial planned wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, repealing Obamacare and heralded a "new chapter of American greatness" during his congressional address.
Trump also praised "great American companies" such as motorcycle manufacturer Harley Davidson and how he said "no, thank you" to riding one.
"Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed," Trump told the crowd.
Stars were quick to respond on social media. "I shouldn't have pledged to drink every time there's a tentative applause," wrote comedian Patton Oswalt, while Sarah Silverman called Trump a "boob."

I call on Trump to only hire American citizens at Mar-a-Lago starting tomorrow.— John Hodgman (@hodgman) March 1, 2017
Trump: "I want to... update the Nation on the progress I've made in keeping those promises." -- interesting use of I, not we. #JointAddress— Maria Shriver (@mariashriver) March 1, 2017
Trump paints very bleak picture of country he inherited. Fascinating compared to one Obama described in his outgoing speech. #JointAddress— Maria Shriver (@mariashriver) March 1, 2017
Weird. He didn't mention Sweden or the Bowling Green Massacre. #JointAddress— Robin Thede (@robinthede) March 1, 2017
A Great Great Wall? What the hell?— Whoopi Goldberg (@WhoopiGoldberg) March 1, 2017
I am 100% sure that Trump ran for president specifically for these standing ovations.— Josh Gondelman (@joshgondelman) March 1, 2017
Too bad Paul Ryan doesn't have white hair. Then him and Pence'd look like those 2 old men hecklers in the muppet.— Larry The Cable Guy (@GitRDoneLarry) March 1, 2017
I cannot even tell you how much more scared I am of Trump, Bannon and Miller than I am of the average illegal immigrant— billy eichner (@billyeichner) March 1, 2017
