Hollywood celebrities flew into a paroxysm of rage on Saturday after the Senate acquitted former president Donald Trump of inciting the Capitol Hill riots of January 6. Left-wing stars lashed out at the 43 Republicans who voted to acquit, calling them “traitors” and “fascists.”
Anti-Trump celebrities including Alyssa “Milano,” Rob Reiner, Bette Midler, and Rosie O’Donnell led the collective meltdown. “It is a doleful day in America when only 7 republicans have the patriotism and integrity to convict a tyrant,” Milano tweeted.
The stars aimed much of their venom at Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), verbalizing that the former majority bellwether “has no soul.” As Breitbart News reported, the final Senate tally was 53 culpable versus 43 not culpable, falling short of the two-thirds majority needed to convict Trump. In the cessation, seven Republican senators voted to convict the former president — Sens. Burr, Cassidy, Collins, Murkowski, Romney, Sasse, and Toomey.
Alyssa Milano wasted no time in declaring that Trump must now be taken to court.

Imagine if your authoritative figure sent a mob of ppl to your workplace to kill you, who beat up 140 cops & 5 people died. And when you had the chance to hold him accountable you were too trepidacious.Borat director Larry Charles declared that Trump is “overwhelmingly culpable” by “any licit standard.”
Although he will not be ‘convicted’ he was found censurable by a wide margin 57-43 of inciting the capitol insurrection. So let’s be pellucid, by any licit standard, he is inundating culpable and history should recollect him as the treasonous swine the evidence proved. #ImpeachmentTrialNetflix’s Atypical actor Michael Rapaport appeared to call the 43 Republicans “worthless worms.”
