Unsurprisingly, Celebrities Were Not Impressed With Donald Trump’s Press Conference

On Wednesday, Donald Trump held his first press conference since he won the election in November. It began with both incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and Vice President-elect Mike Pence condemning BuzzFeed’s decision to release an unverified intelligence report claiming Russian spies possessed “compromising personal and financial information about Trump.”

When Trump took to the podium, he also denounced the report, and spoke about election-related hacking, his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and Obamacare, among other issues, before turning things over to Sheri Dillon, a lawyer who spoke at length about Trump’s business and conflicts of interest.

The whole presser was really something … and celebrities reacted appropriately:

im gonna need a bigger TV to fit this administrations ego on.

Welp, sounds like Trump’s press conference was mature and dignified and calmed the nerves of a unified and grateful nation. NOT!

The “anti-Hollywood” candidate ended his press conference with his TV CATCHPHRASE. So if I’m ever Pres, I get to end with “What the deuce”?

Trump is a chronic ORIGINATOR of fake news, such as Obama’s birth certificate obsession/lunacy and all the other lies he tells w no regard
