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.

As Trump spouts off with his BS...a reminder of when he had this conversation about the wall with the then President of Mexico. We know what was said thanks to leaked transcripts published in the Washington Post. https://t.co/6heXOac0YU pic.twitter.com/GmzGh8qvgv— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) January 9, 2019
I may not always agree with him, but I have to admit that nobody slurs his lies better than Trump.— Michael Ian Black (@michaelianblack) January 9, 2019
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.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) January 9, 2019
#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??— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) January 9, 2019
Trump, live now, railing against immigrants while sitting beside the photo of his immigrant mother. Shame. pic.twitter.com/Oly64Zy2bF— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) January 9, 2019
Trump was grooming hard tonight. Hitler-Ian rhetoric. Wake up. Fight back or sit down Democrats— rose mcgowan (@rosemcgowan) January 9, 2019

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.— Mikel Jollett (@Mikel_Jollett) January 9, 2019
Good job, networks.
