Celebrities With Conservative Derangement Syndrome Fall 2017
Is it Fall 2017 already? I first started these Conservative Derangement / Trump Derangement Syndrome posts around January 2017.
In some cases, liberal celebrities don’t just bash Trump, they bash anyone who voted for Trump.
As fall melts into winter, I will edit this post to add any new anti-Trump or Conservative Derangement comments or behavior by celebrities.
Chrissy Tiegen | September 2017
All I know is that she is supposedly a celebrity, but I don’t know who she is. I’m not sure if she is an actress or a model or what.
Robert Redford (movie actor) | September 2017
by C Weaver, Sept 13, 2017
Starring in movies about politics allegedly gives celebrities a political background. At least, that’s what Robert Redford thought in his latest interview.
The actor spoke with Esquire’s Michael Hainey in an interview published on September 13, where he talked about Nixon, Trump, and Mitch McConnell. …
On the subject of Donald Trump, Redford said, “I just think he is who he is. You can’t blame him for being who he is. He’s always been like that. He’s our fault — that’s how I see it.”
Since he starred in All the President’s Men, Redford decided that he had enough political credibility to be able to compare Nixon to Trump: “Whatever Nixon was, whatever his dark side, he was an accomplished politician … I think on the other side, there’s more ignorance.”
Danny Zucker (TV producer) | September 2017
It seems like DACA has brought out the ugliest (and most hilarious) deleted tweets from our ‘friends’ on the Left. Suppose that’s what happens when your whole set of political ideals is based on emotion rather than fact or reality.
Like this winner from Danny Zuker, producer of Modern Family:
Dear Christians, if you support @realdonaldtrump’s decisin to end DACA your Christianity is bullshit. But on the other hand fuck you. 9/3/17, 10:13 PM
/// end Tweet
Guess Danny doesn’t think Christians watch his show? Or maybe he just doesn’t want them to.
Follow-up Tweet by Danny Zucker:
I do wish people had half the “outrage” they have for me typing “fuck” for Trump literally tearing families apart.
/// end Tweet
Perhaps their outrage is that Zuker doesn’t really understand Christianity, doubt anyone on Twitter was all that upset over some jackass in Hollywood dropping an f-bomb.
Tim Commerford (bass player) | September 2017
Anyone who voted for President Donald Trump is as racist as the man himself, according to Rage Against the Machine bassist Tim Commerford — but the musician says there is a way that Trump voters can absolve themselves and “make it right.”
In an impromptu interview with TMZ this week, Commerford said that the most urgent issue facing the world today isn’t a threat of war from North Korea, or environmental concerns, but rather racism. The bassist said that so-called “Dreamers,” or those benefitting from former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, are “Americans” and “have rights just like all of us do.”
When the TMZ cameraman asked Commerford about the prospect of some DACA beneficiaries being deported, he replied: “Because our president is a racist.”
Amy Schumer (stand up comic, actress)| Sept 2017
Amy Schumer agreed with Shaun King who slammed people for voting for President Donald Trump following the rollback of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
“Same. Sickening. We will keep fighting for you #dreamers,” the 36-year-old comedian and wrote Tuesday in the caption next to a screen shot of King’s Facebook post. (RELATED: TRAINWRECK — Tampa Crowd Eats Amy Schumer Alive For Going After Trump [VIDEO])
….Reading through the comments left by Schumer’s 6.3 million followers, not everyone agreed with her, and one person even pointed out the hypocrisy of her support for abortion versus defending the “dreamers” program.
“Sorry but how is it bigotry to deny illegal immigrants the right to stay when they broke the law to get to the U.S. in the first place,” one wrote.
Another added, “Not defending him but how is ending DACA ‘inhumane’ but abortion isnt?”
Alyssa Milano | September 2017
September 5, 2017
Even on National Prayer Day, Milano couldn’t contain her anti-Trump hatred.
There’s a lot of noise about so-called Trump Derangement Syndrome; while this seems like an over-used hyperbolic swipe at lefties, the term is actually fitting for actress Alyssa Milano.
On National Prayer Day, a day designated by President Donald Trump to offer prayer for the victims and the people fighting through the destruction of Hurricane Harvey, anti-hate Milano sought to bash the president, instead of applauding or merely ignoring the nonpartisan move like all the sane people.
The actress captioned the tweet with, “Remember, Sunday is National Asshole Day (by Presidential Proclamation)!”
Milano was then hammered by folks across the political spectrum for her moronic tweet.
To be fair to Milano, she’s been going through some hard times. Since November, Pantsuit Queen Hill lost the election, Hollywood favorite Jon Ossoff lost the special election in Georgia, Milano reportedly evaded taxes (which is ironic because liberals love taxes and big government), and President Trump has remained in office despite her temper tantrums.
Life is hard.
The nerve of President Trump calling for a National Day of Prayer after Texas and Louisiana were both hit by Hurricane Harvey last week. Who does he think he is asking Americans to pray for their fellow Americans who may have lost their homes, their belongings, their families or even their lives.
Tweet by Trump:
Remember, Sunday is National Prayer Day (by Presidential Proclamation)!

Joshua Milana | Sept 2017
by C. Weaver
Some rich Hollywood actors apparently have so much money, they can scribble on it like children.
West Wing’s Joshua Malina decided on August 31 that one of the best ways to #resist is to write “Harriet Tubman” across every $20 bill. In a tweet to his followers, he shared a picture of his latest artistic work.
Followers immediately responded with their own pictures of defaced $20 bills, with “Harriet Tubman” scribbled in permanent marker across the currency. While Malina’s own handiwork isn’t enough to count as defacement of the bill, the sharpie-ing of some of the bills is enough to fall under defacement. Some eager person just might go too far in trying to #resist.
According to U.S. law, “Defacement of currency is a violation of Title 18, Section 333 of the United States Code. Under this provision, currency defacement is generally defined as follows: Whoever mutilates, cuts, disfigures, perforates, unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association,” is guilty of breaking a law.
Jemele Hill (ESPN host) | Sept 2017
by Andrew Buncombe
The network has distanced itself from her comments
One of the most watched sports networks in the US it at the centre of controversy after publicly scolding an African American anchor who called Donald Trump “a white supremacist” and “a bigot”.
Jemele Hill, a presenter for ESPN, made the comments during a series of postings on Twitter, where she claimed the President was not only a white supremacist “but has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists”.
“Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy. Period,” she wrote in one of those tweets.
…Among those to voice their support for Ms Hill were Colin Kaepernick, the currently unemployed American Football quarterback…
Jennifer Lawrence (movie actress) | September 2017
September 8, 2017
Jennifer Lawrence spoke out against climate deniers and said she was ‘startled’ that people voted in President Trump during an interview on her film ‘Mother!’
The actress blames the recent hurricanes to strike the US on the president’s denial of climate change
Lawrence caught backlash for the comments made during her interview
Viewers of the interview called her said she should keep quiet on political issues
Appearing on British network Channel 4 to discuss her new horror film, mother!, Lawrence was asked about the sort of “end-of-days feeling” in America.
“You know, it’s this new language that’s forming. I don’t even recognize it,” the actress said. “It’s also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting.”
When the reporter mentioned that Americans did vote, Lawrence replied saying “it was really startling” when Trump was elected.
The Academy Award-winner continued, suggesting that the deadly devastation of Hurricane Harvey and Irma, a massive hurricane headed for Florida, may be nature’s response to Trump.
Bono (lead singer of U2) | September 2017
…U2 talked about many things in their appearance Thursday on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon”:
….But, most strikingly, they [U2] discussed President Trump’s controversial decision to “wind down” DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) which protects approximately 800,000 “dreamers” — people who were brought into the country illegally as children.
“Every night [on the group’s ongoing 30th anniversary ‘Joshua Tree’ tour], we’re reminded why we fell in love with this country,” Bono said. “And it’s not just a country; it’s an idea. It’s a great idea, one of the best ideas ever. But you can feel in recent times that idea get a bit twisted. And then you have the ‘dreamers.’ I mean, we’re Irish! We’re the ‘dreamers.’ This country was built for and by ‘dreamers.’ … If there’s no room for ‘dreamers,’ where are we in America? It’s the American dream!”
U2 frontman Bono blasted President Donald Trump’s decision to rescind the DACA amnesty program on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Thursday, after performing a politically-charged rendition of the Joshua Tree track “Bullet the Blue Sky.”
“It’s a strange place we find ourselves in. It’s dangerous out there when you have a little emperor there with a bad haircut and his finger on the nuclear arsenal. And a lot of people in silly costumes following me around. And then you have the dude from North Korea,” Bono joked about Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
Later in the interview, the Irish rocker said the idea of America is being “twisted” following Trump’s decision to end DACA.
“Every night we’re reminded why we fell in love with this country,” Bono said. “And it’s not just a country; it’s an idea. It’s a great idea, one of the best ideas ever. But you can feel in recent times that idea get a bit twisted.”
“And then you have the ‘dreamers,’” he said, referring to the estimated 800,000 people who illegally entered the U.S. with their parents as children and who had been previously shielded from deportation, thanks to Obama’s controversial Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty program.
“I mean, we’re Irish! We’re the ‘dreamers,’” Bono said. “This country was built for and by ‘dreamers.’ … If there’s no room for ‘dreamers,’ where are we in America? It’s the American dream!”
Earlier in the night, Bono changed the lyrics of the hit song “Bullet the Blue Sky” to negatively reference President Trump.
“Suit and tie comes up to me, face orange as the rose on a thorn bush/ Skin as thin as an Orange Crush/ He’s peeling off those dollar bills,” Bono sang on stage, in one altered anti-Trump lyric.
“Ground shakes, but the children can’t weep/ Vaporized in a single tweet/,” he sang in another scathing modified line.
U2 frontman Bono unloaded on President Donald Trump in a Rolling Stone interview published Wednesday, revealing that his Irish rock band’s new album will take on the “bully on the bully pulpit” because “silence is not an option.”
In January, U2 founding guitarist The Edge revealed that “Songs of Experience,” the band’s follow-up to its platinum-selling 2014 album “Songs of Innocence,” was delayed because of Trump’s election. Now Bono says “there’s a couple of reasons why we delayed Songs of Experience. One personal, one political.”
Robert De Niro (actor) | Sept 2017
Friday on CNN, actor Robert De Niro said it was “disgusting” that President Donald Trump and his administration would not link the devastation of Hurricane Irma to climate change.
Chef Anthony Bourdain | Sept 2017
by Tim Graham
CNN’s non-news hosts have a serious hate problem with President Trump, from Kathy Griffin to Reza Aslan, and now to Anthony Bourdain, the chef who hosts their food/travel show Parts Unknown. TMZ interviewed Bourdain and asked him about being invited to cooking for President Trump and North Korean dictator. Asked what he would serve, Bourdain said “Hemlock.”
When reached by Fox News, Bourdain, apparently joking, said that he meant to say “kale” instead of poison.
The TMZ producer began by asking Bourdain if he would film a show in North Korea, which Bourdain said would be ridiculous since the people are starving, and Kim Jong Un is a “chubby evil little f–k.”
This isn’t surprising, since Bourdain told TheWrap.com last year that he wouldn’t eat with Trump. “Absolutely f—ing not,” Bourdain said. “I’ve been a New Yorker most of my life… I would give the same answer that I would have given 10 years ago, when he was just as loathsome.”
Bourdain’s CNN show bowed in deep respect to President Obama. The chef dined with Obama in Hanoi, Vietnam and then announced said “the president’s chopstick skills are on point.”
Stephen King (author) | Sept 2017
Stephen King thinks President Trump has a “severely f***ed-up mind”:
[Tweet by King saying as much]
That’s rich coming from King, the king of the “severely f***ed-up mind”:
Dude, at the end of “It” you have a bunch of 11-year-old boys have sex with one 11-year-old girl

EMMYS (award program) | Sept 2017
A lot of celebrities (and of course most are left wingers) at the 2017 Emmys bashed Trump, but the show also got very low ratings.
With 11.38 million viewers tuning into the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards is even with last year’s show on ABC, which was the all-time low. The 2016 show was down 5% from the 2015 show, which was the previous low. Among adults 18-49, last night’s Emmys snagged a 2.5 rating. That’s down 10% from the Jimmy Kimmel hosted show of last year, the previous demo low.
Diversity may have scored several big wins at Sunday night’s Emmys, but Issa Rae’s comment ahead of the show that she’s “rooting for everybody black” is raising some eyebrows — at least, those of Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Rae made the comment to Variety on the red carpet Sunday night. Carlson, on his Fox News show “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” began a segment lambasting the politics of the Emmys by taking aim at the “Insecure” star’s comments.
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has weighed in on the Emmys, which were heavy on humor and swipes at his expense.
“I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night – the worst ever. Smartest people of them all are the ‘DEPLORABLES,’” he wrote on Twitter on Tuesday night, two days after Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards telecast. The President is in New York, staying at Trump Tower, during the United Nations General Assembly.
The latest telecast of the Emmy awards on CBS drew the lowest audience ever, 11.4 million, and that is no surprise. This show could not have been more predictable — quickly devolving into a boorish hours-long festival of Trump-bashing and Hillary-mourning.
Awards shows used to be blockbusters for TV. But in the Age of Trump, they’re becoming screaming political spectacles, like the infamous Paul Wellstone funeral/pep rally of 2002. The red-state audience knows it’s going to be a leftist hootenanny attacking conservatives, all night long. Why put up with it? So they don’t bother.
CHRIS EVANS (movie actor) | Sept 2017
NFL (football sport) / NBA (basketball sport) | Sept 2017
In the months since the Golden State Warriors won the NBA championship, it’s been unclear if the team will make the traditional visit to the White House.
All-Star point guard Stephen Curry has repeatedly said that he wants to skip the trip because he disagrees with President Donald Trumpand he wants to “inspire some change.”
At the team’s media day on Friday, Curry bluntly said, “I don’t want to go.”
On Saturday, Trump took to Twitter to say that the invitation has been withdrawn:
[Tweet by Trump]
Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!
Prominent athletes lined up to denounce President Trump after he rescinded a White House invitation to Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry on Saturday morning and attacked Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem, indirectly calling the NFL quarterback a “son of a bitch,” at a rally on Friday night.
NFL (American football)
After President Trump lambasted unpatriotic players who “take the knee” during the National Anthem, Goodell issued a statement condemning the former and backing the latter.
At an event yesterday for a US Senate candidate in Alabama,Trump asked, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b—- off the field right now, he is fired?’”
by David Hookstead, Sept 2017
The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium.
Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans.
…This is not a great look for the NFL. TV ratings are already on the decline, and now people aren’t even going to the games.
The NFL is the crown jewel of American sports. It can’t be overstated how awful the optics of an empty stadium for a primetime game is.
September 23, 2017
…NFL players on Saturday ripped into Donald Trump for comments he made that those who sit during the national anthem should be fired.
The president made the comments Friday night at a rally for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Luther Strange, saying in part “Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired. He’s fired!”
Commissioner Roger Goodell on Saturday morning said in a statement that Trump’s remarksshowed a lack of respect for the game and players. The players’ union also criticized Trump for the remarks.
Players took matters into their own hands, laying into Trump via social media.
Lena Dunham | Sept 2017
by Kate Feldman
Lena Dunham took her attacks on the President to a new level Monday when she directly compared him to a white supremacist convicted of mass murder.
“Not only is he a racist but he’s a racist with untreated mental illness,” the “Girls” star wrote on Twitter.
“So under diff circumstances he’s Dylann Roof.”
Roof was convicted in December of 33 hate crimes after he shot and killed nine people at a Charleston church in June 2015.
He pleaded guilty to nine counts of murder, three counts of attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and was given nine life sentences without parole.
Dunham’s comments come amid the President’s feud with the NBA and NFL, as football players around the league took a knee during the National Anthem Sunday to protest racial inequality and police brutality.
Trump has been lashing out against the athletes on social media for several days.
The 31-year-old actress also weighed in on the protests.
…Dunham was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton during the presidential race and has continually spoken out against the President since the election.
James Cameron | Sept 2017
Director James Cameron has described Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord as “insanity,” in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
EMINEM (rap singer) | Oct 2017
Oct 10, 2014
During the annual BET Hip-Hop Awards, Eminem came out swinging at Donald Trump. In the course of his prerecorded freestyle rap, the artist described the president as “a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust” and ripped on the politician’s track record, from the wall to Charlottesville, touching down on several unpopular tweets along the way. He was particularly critical of the commander-in-chief’s response to the NFL protests…
George Lopez (stand up comic, actor) | Oct 2017
Oct 14, 2017
By Mara Siegler
Comic George Lopez was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd.
We’re told the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball.
Robert DeNiro (movie actor) | Oct 2017
Robert De Niro regaled the starry crowd at the Annual Hudson River Park Gala on Thursday night where he was honored and a park bench dedicated to him.
“One of my pleasures will be keeping people off my bench who don’t deserve a view of the park like Donald Trump,” he said during a speech.
“F–k you, Donald Trump. It’s a horror with this motherf—er.” The “Good Fellas” actor also described the President as a low life.
Snoop Dogg (singer) | Nov 2017
Rap artist Snoop Dogg posted a photo Wednesday promoting his album and newest single, “Make America Crip Again.”
The image features what appears to be President Donald Trump’s dead body draped in a flag.
The Instagram post — which appears to have since been removed – showed the rapper with a cup in his hand standing over a cadaver with a toe tag reading “Trump.”
The image practically mirrors that of Ice Cube’s 1991 album, “Death Certificate,” in which the dead body is tagged “Uncle Sam.”
In the single titled “Make America Crip Again,” released ahead of the album, Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, takes jabs at Trump.
