13 Celebrities Trump Absolutely Broke (Updated)

Hollywood made it abundantly clear where it stood regarding Donald Trump prior to Election Day.

The industry despised him. Full stop.

So what happened when the real estate mogul shocked the globe by defeating Hillary Clinton on Nov. 8, 2016? About what you’d expect. Stars marched against the new president. They pounded him on social media, in press interviews and on screens large and small.

Some, like “Avengers” director Joss Whedon, wished he would die.

In short, they flexed their constitutional rights. And, given Trump’s bombast and occasionally tacky tweets, most of that could be deemed appropriate. Or at least within the bounds of accepted behavior.

Except a few stars went a mite too far. You might say President Trump broke them given their wide-eyed obsession. See if you agree…

Kathy Griffin

The self-described D-lister famously held a decapitated Trump head aloft for all to see. That ISIS-style photo shoot caused a commotion which she claimed came unexpectedly. Hmmm. She later begged for our collective forgiveness for the cruel, unfunny and undignified act. Then she attacked the Trump clan for firing back during a disastrous press conference. Next? She un-apologized and went on tour attempting to milk the controversy.

It all played out like some sad performance art. We felt pity for the clown sporting tear-stained greasepaint.

Ron Perlman

The “Sons of Anarchy” standout did’t attempt anything as ugly as Griffin’s shock photo shoot. Nor did he make many public attacks on Trump. Instead, he used his Twitter account as a 24/7 Trump hate fest. Here’s just one example, with apologies for the mature language:

Day after day, hour after hour, Perlman lashed out the president with hipster cursing and outright rage. And there’s no end in sight. In February, the actor said he was willing to die to defeat Trump.

More recently?

Perlman had a mini-meltdown on Twitter, vowing to temporarily leave the social media outlet.

Joss Whedon

How do we know Trump broke the man who gave us “Firefly” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer?” Whedon told us so.

That partially explained how he weaponized a group of cancer-stricken teens to attack Rep. Paul Ryan.

He still tweets despite temporarily leaving the social media platform following that embarrassing moment. He still attacks the GOP, though. He recently shared an image of Rep. Paul Ryan with blood dripping from his mouth. Once broken, it’s not easy to be repaired.

Chelsea Handler

Netflix’s lightweight comic spends much of her waking hours attacking President Trump. She’s all but demanded a military coup to take him down. That’s one of her lesser moments as a self-styled activist.

Her Twitter feed is a one-stop shop for limp Trump jokes and outright rage against the president. Yet her fury doesn’t stop with Trump:

Handler quit her self-titled talk show to focus full time on activism. If you buy that we’ve got a Nigerian prince who has a great deal you need to hear.

She also confessed she turned to therapy after Trump’s victory, pummeling her therapist with her progressive rants.

Rosie O’Donnell

The former “View” host isn’t in the news much these says. She snagged a supporting role on the Showtime series “SMILF” but otherwise is keeping a low profile.

Her venom toward Trump, a nemesis from back in the mogul’s pre-presidential days, never waned. Last month she dubbed the Commander in Chief a “child rapist.” Her rage transitioned into Trump’s policies earlier this month in a way that drew Twitter’s attention.

She first blasted the GOP tax reform by offering to bribe two Republican senators to vote against it. Then, she slurred conservative pundit Ben Shapiro of The Daily Wire fame with a Tweet that the social media outlet yanked from the service. Yes, it was that disturbing.

This week?

The former “View” host got caught by The New York Post going over the legal limit on campaign contributions, using different variations of her name and New York addresses in the process.

Madonna

The Material Girl didn’t spend the year fighting Trump or his administration. She actually did something far worse.

On a cold January day she took to the streets during the Women’s March against the new president. And while fellow celebrity Ashley Judd played the Hitler card against Trump Madonna topped that idiocy.

How?

Let’s let Madonna’s words speak for themselves.

“Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outrage. Yes, I’ve thought a lot about blowing up the White House, but I know that this won’t change anything.”

Eminem

Here’s an abridged version of the famed rapper’s media push for his new album, “Revival”

“Please pay attention to me, Mr. Trump.”

Eminem, once a dangerous voice in pop music, echoed virtually every entertainer this year with his multiple Trump rants. The saddest part? He’s repeatedly begging President Trump to respond.

The year’s biggest shock is that the president did no such thing. Or, at least not yet. That left a former superstar shaking his fist in the air … just like every other celebrity. Sad.

Bette Midler

The multi-talented diva didn’t fully engage in politics prior to Trump’s arrival on the scene. Sure, she used her Twitter account to share uninformed global warming updates based on the weather outside her New York abode. In between, she might plug an occasional project.

Now?

Her Twitter feed is as unhinged as the rest of this curious group. She apologized for invoking the n-word in one Tweet, saying Trump’s selection of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court made her do it.

She also joked about an attack on Sen. Rand Paul that left him hospitalized with broken ribs.

Her Trump hatred even spread to the First Lady. Midler recently attacked Melania Trump’s breasts, drawing outrage given it’s no longer comically acceptable to do so.

Jim Carrey

The former funnyman now spends most of his waking hours painting fever dream portraits of Team Trump.

He also uses public forums to smite Trump and the GOP with all the unhinged rhetoric he can muster.

“These are not people you can deal with. You cannot be bipartisan with a criminal. A rapist needs to be removed, not negotiated with. These people are raping our system, they’re destroying it right in front of us,” Jim Carrey said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“These people have to be removed from our system because they’re bad for us,” Carrey continued. “Trump is a melanoma, and anybody that covers for him, including Sarah Sanders, is putting makeup on it. It shows that there’s a deeper problem in this country, and that problem is greed.”

Note: Carrey is a millionaire many times over.

Judd Apatow

The comedy maestro’s last funny movie came with Amy Schumer’s 2015 hit “Trainwreck.” He’s still busy, cranking out mediocre fare like the Netflix comedy “Love” and spreading fear on his Twitter account. Note: Apatow blocked this reporter on Twitter.

“Trump is a Nazi. The debate is over,” he declared, earning a stern rebuke from The Federalist.

Ellen Barkin

The “Animal Kingdom” actress drew headlines, but not an ounce of punishment, when she wished death to President Trump on Twitter.

She was just warming up, sadly.

Here, she blames Trump, the most pro-Israel president in recent times, for the death of 11 Jewish people in Pittsburgh.

Then again, maybe Trump did less to Barkin than we thought. In 2012 she wished for Hurricane Isaac to “drown Republicans.”

Jeff Daniels

The other “Dumb and Dumber” star on this list gets political from time to time. He let his HBO show, “The Newsroom,” do the talking a few years back.

Now, he’s sounding the siren against a second term for Team Trump. How? In the most hysterical way possible at, where else, MSNBC.

“I think there are people in the Midwest, between the coasts, who don’t know anything about this, who don’t care about this, they don’t have time for this, who have to make a decision now. You have to decide whether, like Atticus, you believe there is still compassion, decency, civility, respect for others, do unto others — remember that? Do unto others. All that stuff you guys believe in, and you still voted not for Hillary, or for Trump, where are you now? Because your kids are looking up at you going, ‘but he lies.’ And I think there are a lot of people in the Midwest who are going—it might be enough for them. We’re going to find out if the big gamble is to go all the way to November 2020, which I agree, and lose, it’s the end of democracy.”

Julianna Margulies

The “ER” and “Good Wife” alum made a startling confession to viewers of “The Late Show” recently. She no longer reads the news before going to bed.

Why? It gives her horrendous nightmares … like this:

“I was waking up in the middle of the night from nightmares of just screaming. I had one dream … I was in a boardroom. There was a long table, and it was just the guy who’s in the Oval Office right now sitting there, and I walked in, and I was screaming, screaming, don’t you care about the next gen– I mean, I was going crazy at him and screaming and yelling, and that was 2016. I woke up in a sweat and I went, ‘Oh, my God I’ve gone insane and I have to stop reading the news at night.’

A quick note: Late night shows routinely do “pre-interviews” where the stars share some tidbits they may want to share while on the couch. Imagine Margulies volunteering this information…

HONORABLE MENTIONS: Johnny Depp, Jimmy Kimmel, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Robert De Niro.

  1. I regret Ron Perlman. Been a fan of his work for a long time.
    Joss Whedon made The Avenger but…fuck him.
    The rest barely qualify as celebrities.

    1. Whedon also did Buffy and Firefly. I suspect he saved the recent Justice League movie as well with a last-minute rewrite. Still it’s disturbing to see him melt down like that.

      Perlman is entitled to his opinion. I’m entitled to never pay for any work involving him again, and I plan to exercise said right.

  2. Shia LaBeouf doesn’t get an honorable mention? Granted, he was crazier than a shithouse rat before PDT, but the election really put it on display.

      1. Far as I know it is. Pretty sad when you have to move to the land of Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys so as not to keep getting your “spirit broken”.

      2. You didn’t know? He moved it multiple times, and the /pollacks used everything up to and including contrails and flight schedules to pinpoint his flags and abduct them until he gave up.

    1. Their heroes ran this nation into the ground like the narcissistic brats that they are.

      Now the grown-ups have to clean up the mess … so we don’t have as much time or money to watch them play these days, and are therefore more choosy about what we watch.

  3. These dumb celebs are finally realizing their true value to American culture, and as it approaches zero, they are lashing out.

    Meanwhile Trump keeps the MAGA rolling.

  4. Ol’ dog Joss is quiet because he has his own skeletons #too. Confessing to boffing underlings in the 90’s needs only to have the other shoe drop as to the power imbalance of that.

    1. Weekly Standard sent me a letter. “Please subscribe. Please!”

      I wrote Kristol’s “I prefer the Deep State over Trump” on the request and sent it back. They paid the postage.

      1. Bill K. appears to be both stubborn and highly sensitive. It is really sad to watch. I get no joy from his isolation. He is no doubt dreaming of his vindication when Trump does something incredibly stupid.
        I just hope we are right and he is wrong. But his bizarre stubbornness gives me no joy.

  5. Sarah Silverman too. Who is now doing her Condescension Tour of the flyover states. You should watch a little of it. She’s oblivious. She thinks she’s “reaching out.”

    The Brokest of those Broken by The Donald are the comedians. He’s killed their funny mojo. Silverman, Handler, Oswalt, Kimmel, Whedon, Schumer, Griffin…. All have been reduced to impotent ranting self-ruining scolds.

  6. How’s Madonna doing with the 63,000,000 “servicings” that she promised ahead of the election last year? Poor woman. She’s going to spend the rest of her life on her knees.

  7. I tweeted Chelsea Handler about her disgusting tweets about Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, saying she should put some mirrors in her house where she hangs upside down in the daylight like a bat, so she could see that she’s pretty fugly herself………Twitter suspended my account saying it was “threatening and offensive” And would not restore it until I deleted the tweet.

  8. Hollywood, and its Bigly cousin MSM, are today’s definition of Insanity: Doing the same things & expecting different results!

    Trump is pretty much an Open Book (yet Muller keeps on trying to find some `missing’ chapter written by his Clinton-led enemies) while the `Celebrities’ have a whole bunch of closets filled with Dirty Laundry & the brains of minnows.

    Hey, anti-Trump Celebs, when you feel the urge to `out’ yourself, just do stuff like these “7 Celebrities President Trump Absolutely Broke in 2017”!

  9. The beauty is they acted so terribly they made themselves irrelevant. Few people, except the diehards listen to them any more.

  10. Celebrities are those who you celebrate. I celebrate the cops, the Men and Women who are out there in shit holeistans and those of us that will get up , go to work and pay our own way. Shia Leboeuf, Chelsea Handler et al….they ain’t crap

  11. Google is paying 97$ per hour,with weekly payouts.You can also avail this.On tuesday I got a great new Land Rover Range Rover from having earned $11752 this last four weeks..with-out any doubt it’s the most-comfortable job I have ever done
