Celebrities reacted with glee Tuesday after former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was found guilty of eight charges and Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen pled to campaign finance violations.
“With each new development, Trump’s PR strategy looks more and more pathetic. The stench of fear is starting to emanate from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. And just like Watergate, once that putrid odor wafts up to Capital Hill, the once spineless GOP, will slowly abandon the Liar,” fumed actor-director Rob Reiner.

The charges that Manafort was on, and the charges he still faces, do not have anything to do with the Trump campaign. Neither case seems to be related at all to “Russian collusion.”
Nevertheless that didn’t stop some of Hollywood’s most anti-Trump stars from celebrating the Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen news.
Below is a roundup of all the Hollywood hate.

After the Manafort verdicts and the Cohen plea, if Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan still have an ounce of dignity left, if they still feel any love and loyalty for America, they must call on Donald Trump to resign today.
