Hollywood celebrities couldn’t contain their joy on Wednesday after Democrats voted to impeach President Trump a record-breaking second time.
Ten Republican lawmakers caved into the anti-Trump mob and sided with Democrats to remove the President of the United States from office just days before his terms is due to expire.
The Dem-controlled House voted 232 to 197, with 10 Republicans supporting the sham measure.
Breitbart.com reports: It remains unclear what effect the vote will have on the president’s final seven days in office. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has stated that he believes the president committed an impeachable offense, but added that he won’t reconvene the Senate before January 19, the president’s final full day in office.
The Democrat-controlled House previously voted to impeach the president in late 2019. But their efforts to remove him ultimately failed when the Republican-controlled Senate voted against impeachment.
The latest effort comes a week after a crowd of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in a display of rage over what they have argued to be a rigged election against the president. While the commander in chief never encouraged his supporters to engage in physical violence — and even urged them to disband and return home “in peace” — many lawmakers have nevertheless blamed the president and used the riot as an opportunity to revive impeachment proceedings.
Wednesday’s House vote elicited smug cries of victory from Hollywood celebrities, including anti-Trump stalwarts Michael Moore, Alec Baldwin, Rob Reiner, Patton Oswalt, and model Chrissy Teigen.
Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore called the president “sociopathic” and urged authorities to “convict” him.
Rob Reiner, who has repeatedly smeared the president as a murderer and his supporters as white supremacists, also crowed his approval.
Alec Baldwin, who has faced his own accusations of physical violence, tweeted his optimism after the news broke.
Alyssa Milano noted that Trump is the only president to be impeached twice. Bette Midler was also in a celebratory mood.
Star Wars actor Mark Hamill mocked the president following the House vote.
Model Chrissy Teigen tweeted: “I didn’t even know you could be impeached twice.”
Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah tweeted out: “We got you.”
Actor Michael Rapaport tweeted: “Wow, what a pick me up.”
Actor Michael Ian Black joked, “Let’s go for three.”
Actor Jeffrey Wright misleadingly claimed that the House vote was “bi-partisan” when only ten Republicans broke ranks to side with Democrats.
Actor Don Cheadle used the vote as a chance to mock White House advisor Stephen Miller.
Comedian Patton Oswalt joked that this is the “gritty reboot” impeachment.
