Singers, actors, comedians and entertainers – including Cher, Bette Midler, Mia Farrow, Seth MacFarlane, Rose McGowan, Michael Ian Black and Kathy Griffin – joined the chorus of critical tweets leveled at Trump, who used his speech to repeat multiple falsehoods about immigration.
This entire Trump speech has the cadence of a Wheel Of Fortune contestant solving the puzzle.

I may not always agree with him, but I have to admit that nobody slurs his lies better than Trump.

Straight lies from the Oval are nothing new. What is new is that @realdonaldtrump is losing base support, and fast, as his failures pile up. @speakerpelosi and @senschumer spoke truth to faux power as they pulled at the threads of an unraveling administration.

#munchausensbyproxy We’re living it every day. It might be called something else; a person holds an entire nation hostage so that they will pay attention to him. What is that called?? Anyone??

Trump was grooming hard tonight. Hitler-Ian rhetoric. Wake up. Fight back or sit down Democrats

Only of these two things is actually getting built, brick by brick:
1) your damned border wall, or
2) Mueller’s case against you.
Guess which it is? 🤣🤣🤣

No state of emergency declared. No new policy. Just a bunch of lies about process and racist scare stories.
Good job, networks.
