We can all agree that Hollywood and the music industry is notoriously left-wing. It’s probably safe to assume if you don’t know for sure that they are a bleeding heart liberal. For the most part, who cares? You can appreciate an actor or an artist’s talent without politics getting in the way. But, lately, celebrities are so obsessed with politics, particularly Trump hatred, that they won’t shut up about it.
There are plenty of celebrities, whose political views are hardly a secret, that don’t obsess constantly over Donald Trump. Jerry Seinfeld doesn’t tweet much, but when he does, politicals are refreshingly absent. Madonna, who infamously said she wanted to blow up the White House, isn’t ranting like lunatic about Trump on her Twitter feed. Mark Ruffalo uses his Twitter account to draw attention to various causes he supports, but Trump is mostly absent from those tweets. There are plenty more examples of celebrities in the entertainment industry that are not using their Twitter feeds as anti-Trump soapboxes, but I wanted to look for those that have—the celebrities who are using anti-Trumpism to prove their liberal bona fides or maintain relevancy or something.
10. Rob Reiner (@robreiner)
The Meathead couldn’t even say Happy Thanksgiving to his followers without making it about Trump. “Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Now back to Impeaching and Removing the most Criminally Corrupt President in US History,” he tweeted on Friday. Nearly all of his recent tweets are about Trump or impeachment. His Twitter bio calls himself “Filmmaker, actor, producer, husband, and father,” but “Trump hater really should be at the top of that list, because what else is he even doing right now?
9. Jason Alexander (@IJasonAlexander)
Jason Alexander’s career certainly peaked with his role as George Costanza on Seinfeld, because now all he can talk about is politics. Is he doing anything else? He’s a talented, versatile actor who’s even won a Tony Award, but if you want to know what he’s up to with his career, don’t bother with his Twitter feed. It’s just him ranting about Trump and Republicans, and occasionally publicly shaming fans who thought they were following an actor, not a pundit. Compare this to Julia Louis-Dreyfus (@OfficialJLB), who, like her former Seinfeld co-star, can’t seem to separate herself from politics either. She’s arguably had a more successful post-Seinfeld career, so while she tweets about Trump occasionally, her political tweets tend to split her focus more equally with political causes she supports.
8. Rosie O’Donnell (@ROSIE)
Rosie is so overcome with Trump hatred, that her bio reads “IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT AND ALL HIS MEN.” Rosie’s career peaked in the 1990s, and has been mediocre ever since. I’m guessing she had plenty of time to watch the impeachment hearings because what else does she have to do—besides retweet negative Trump articles and tweets?
7. Bette Midler (@BetteMidler)
Is she on tour? Is she working on a new album? Has she had an album recently? Beats me. All I can see are tweets about Trump and the GOP and how awful they are. Some choice tweets include one mocking his “Rocky” photoshop next to a more unflattering version—which could be considered fat-shaming, and others mocking his hair. Very insightful stuff.
6. Cher (@cher)
Aside from an apparent inability to tweet without all caps on, Cher can’t go long without ranting about Trump. She’s so distracted by anti-Trumpism, her profile cover photo is promoting the launch of album from 2018.
5. Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself)
Mark Hamill owes his career to George Lucas, but he owes his Twitter account to Donald Trump, and those two things dominate his Twitter feed. Luke Skywalker may have been told not to be consumed by hate, but Mark Hamill routinely hates on Trump in the most juvenile ways it’s hard to even scroll down his feed without shaking your head.
4. Barbra Streisand (@BarbraStreisand)
Word on the street is Barbra Streisand was a singer, but lately, she’s just a wannabe Rachel Maddow, foaming at the mouth about impeachment and tweeting anti-Trump articles. She simply won’t shut up about him.
3. Debra Messing (@DebraMessing)
One might think the cancellation of the Will & Grace reboot after three seasons would be a sign that alienating fans is not a good career move. I guess the message wasn’t received because as you scroll down Debra Messing’s Twitter feed it is overwhelmed with anti-Trump tweets. I was never a fan of Will & Grace during its original run, but I know of plenty of conservatives who were that were put off by the cast’s rampant anti-Trumpism they didn’t bother watching the revival.
2. George Takei (@GeorgeTakei)
While he was perfectly willing to go on The Celebrity Apprentice to win Trump’s money for charity, since then he’s decided to jump on the I Hate Trump Bandwagon, and is attempting to be an anti-Trump cultural influencer. Despite himself being accused of sexual assault (and denying it) Takei couldn’t find it in himself to concede that Brett Kavanaugh may have been falsely accused. For Takei, his anti-Trumpism is good business. Takei’s feed is full of anti-Trump tweets and links, often from one of his pop culture websites.
1. Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey)
To be fair, Jim Carrey appears to be having severe mental health issues. If he’s still acting, I’m not sure what’s he’s up to, because his Twitter account is full of postings of his artwork, which I think is a psychologist’s dream. It’s not the most talented work out there, but the root of his art is a deep, dark, hateful place. The work is visually frightening and crude, at times. This guy needs therapy.
