Rather than wear a gaudy sandwich board in support of the donkey party, Mother Monster showed her support through the magic of song!
Lady Gaga performed at an invitation-only concert for DNC delegates in Camden, New Jersey. Her setlist included some spirited covers: Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land”, Neil Young’s “Old Man,” The Beatles’ “Come Together” and Edith Piaf’s “La Vie en Rose”, which she performed as an encore.
When you start your speech at the DNC with a cry of elation, you're telling the world you're a bit of an optimist.
“Tonight, more than 200 years after Deborah Sampson fought and nearly 100 years after women got the vote, you people have made history,” Streep said proudly. “And you’re going to make history again in November because Hillary Clinton will be our first woman president.”
Lena Dunham & America Ferrera
The TV stars struck the perfect balance of humour (“I’m America Ferrera and according to Donald Trump, I’m probably a rapist.”) and gravity, taking the Republican candidate to task for previous disparaging statements regarding women's rights and Latin America.
“This man would have you believe," said Dunham, "that our differences are more important than what unites us.”
While Ferrera flipped Trump's campaign slogan by stating, "Donald is not making America great again — he’s making America hate again.”
It is no surprise that Angelina Jolie, as United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) special envoy, should take issue with Trump's desire to institute a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S., including refugees from Syria.
When asked her thoughts, Jolie shook her head and replied, “To me, America is built on people from around the world coming together for freedoms, especially freedom of religion. So it’s hard to hear this is coming from someone who is pressing to be an American president.”
Elizabeth Banks's issue of contempt with Donald Trump rests not in his politics but in his flagrant plagiarism.
Speaking at the DNC in July, Banks explained. “I’m Elizabeth Banks. Some of you know me from ‘The Hunger Games’, in which I play Effie Trinket, a cruel, out-of-touch reality-TV star, who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded speeches to a violent dystopia. So, when I tuned in to Cleveland last week, I was like, ‘Hey! That’s my act!’”
Perhaps comedian Sarah Silverman should consider a career in politics. She took to the podium on Day 1 of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia to put things into perspective, much to the delight of celebrities on Twitter. She condemned the 'Bernie or Bust' crowd before her then explained who or what was getting her support.
“I support Bernie Sanders and the movement behind him… Not only did Bernie wake us up, he made us understand what is possible and what we deserve. Hillary is our Democratic nominee and I will proudly vote for her.”
On the flipside of Sarah Silverman's coin is another S.S. who, it seems, supports the individual, not the party. Whether her words are merely rhetoric intended to express her disappointment in Bernie Sanders' loss to Hillary Clinton. who can say; what is clear is that the first woman to represent a major political party in the presidential election should not assume she has the vote of the female population -- o Susan Sarandon's vote at least.
The 'Bull Durham' actress has said that Hillary Clinton would be more dangerous in office than Donald Trump. “I don’t pretend to be an expert in anything but I am sometimes privy to information. I go by issues; I don’t vote with my vagina.”
A douche bag is a useful hygiene feminine product and yet, when the 'Late Show' host calls Donald Trump one, it's meant as an insult.
Yeah, we don't get it, either.
In any case, the intent is what matters, as Colbert was responding to comments Trump made at the expense of Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the Muslim parents of a fallen U.S. soldier -- comments that earned the "politician" the ire of Democrats and even some Republicans.
As far back as 2014 (in political terms that's a long time ago) Pharrell was adamant the former First Lady was going to win. Here's why...
“A world where 75 per cent of the prime ministers and the presidents were women: that’s a different world. That’s gonna happen, and it’s gonna happen when Hillary wins. Because you know what? No matter how staunch of a supporter you are of no-abortion, whatever you are: you’re a woman, and there’s no way in the world you’re going to vote for somebody that’s going to try to tell you what to do with your body. Hillary’s gonna win. Listen, I’m reaching out to her right now. She’s gonna win.”
One of the youngest on this list is Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence whose ire for Donald Trump, what it lacks in panache makes up for in enthusiasm. On the Graham Norton Show, <a href="https://etcanada.com/news/44880/jennifer-lawrence-reveals-the-two-words-she-wants-to-say-to-donald-trump/"she revealed the two words she wanted to say to the Republican candidate (and they are not "Mr. President").
Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen had a lot of good years together working on the uber-popular sitcom, 'Two And A Half Men', but when Cryer compared his former castmate to Donald Trump, we don't think he was paying the Republican candidate a compliment.
“I worked with a guy who — also — whenever he said whatever came to the top of his head, people loved it! And they loved it even more when he said horrible things. So there was an interesting overlap between … Charlie and Donald Trump."
Admittedly this doesn't identify outright Cryer as a Democrat but it definitely means he's anti-Trump and therefore, anti-Republican.
Like the Shakespearean fool, comics of today have made careers out of lampooning the rich and famous. Take Louis C.K., for instance. The comic not only lampoons Trump, he absolutely decimates him with a comparison that is anything but funny.
Earlier this year he pleaded with his fans: "Please stop voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the '30s. Do you think they saw the s**t coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb-over who would say anything at all."
We should point out that Louis refrains from endorsing any one party. However, comparing a candidate to the most evil man of the 20th century doesn't make it seem like he's sitting on the fence for this one.
A bit of an obvious one. Katy has been a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton if not the Democratic party, with her latest act of allegiance coming at the DNC where she lent her voice -- both speaking and singing -- to the proceedings.
Plus, she brought Orlando Bloom along. So she's spreading the gospel of Clinton... one boyfriend at a time.
Given the Dixie Chicks' vocal opposition to former president George W. Bush, it's not shocking to see singer Natalie Maines take a similar stance on Republican candidate Donald Trump. This time round, however, she's calling out Trump AND the country music world.
On Aug. 11, 2016, she tweeted: "I get banned for not liking Bush and now Trump can practically put a hit out on Hillary and he's still all over country radio! Hypocrites!"
The long-time Democrat had her own agenda when she took the stage at the DNC -- namely, to refute Trump's assertion that Mexican immigration brings criminals, drug dealers, and rapists into America.
“When Donald Trump calls us criminals and rapists, he’s insulting American families. My father is not a criminal or a rapist, in fact, he’s a United States veteran.”
Some late-night hosts get political through the use of irony, others through characters. Seth Meyers, however, uses foul language.
“It is possible to take [Trump] seriously and also remember he’s a clown,” riffed the 'Late Night' host..“Yes, he’s a dangerous clown. He’s a clown with a knife, but at the end of the day he’s still a f***ing clown.”
We can't remember the last time Ashley was active in Hollywood but we can definitely recall the last time she was active in politics. The Kentucky-raised Judd is an activist whose humanitarian work has seen her traverse the globe.
With the national election on the horizon she has lent her voice to the Democratic party and perhaps more vociferously, against Donald Trump.
“I’ve known Donald for 15, 17 years? I’m friends with someone who married into the family,” she said. “Anyway, I would bump into him at the U.S. Open, for example, and I think I can say the amount of time he has spent looking at my chest rather than my face is proportional to his insanity and functionality.”
There are two certainties in this world: death and taxes. That said, you could probably add another to that list: Rosie and Donald hate each other. With Trump's foray into politics, their feud has grabbed the attention of a nation, not just the entertainment industry.
Who does Jake Gyllenhaal support? Why, the Spartans of Michigan State, of course! Who else does Jake Gyllenhaal support? Democrat Sen. John Kerry (for those too young to remember, Kerry was the Democratic nominee in the 2004 election. Who doesn't Jake Gyllenhaal support? Donald Trump. Said the actor, “Sometimes, I find myself seeing certain candidates like Trump where I say, “Oh, it excites the pre-adolescent in me,’ which is prevalent many times. But I want a leader who is an adult.”
Though this photo was taken at the Democratic National Convention in Boston in 2004, the antics of Republican candidate Donald Trump have only fuelled the passion with which many Democrats have supported their candidates. Dreyfuss, like many other celebs, has taken to social media to vent his frustration over the success Trump is enjoying.
Calling Trump's celebrity supporters "whores" and the man himself "an unqualified racist," the 'Jaws' star makes it clear which side he's on.
Clooney, Hillary Clinton Push For 2-1-1 Community Number
Unless he's a handsome double agent (which, we suppose, is entirely possible), Clooney is firmly in Clinton's corner. Here he is with the then-U.S. senator at a United Way news conference to announce the Call for 2-1-1 Act back in 2003 in Washington, DC.
More recently, the actor and wife Amal held a benefit dinner at their home, with proceeds going towards Clinton's campaign. Plates were $33,400 -- for that price we hope diners got the chicken AND the fish.
Much was made of the 'American Sniper' star's appearance at the DNC. Certain members of the GOP just couldn't wrap their heads around a Democrat actor playing a real-life Republican in a film. Seems appropriate Donald Trump is their candidate -- a man with delusions of grandeur and the inability to tell fact from fiction.
