Actor Jeffrey Wright wrote, “Donald Trump came out at 2:30 AM to remind America — from the WH — that he’s the biggest criminal a**hole you know.”
Hysterical-sounding actress Sophia Bush wrote, “We have sent troops to other nations to stop dictators from doing what Trump just did. This is NOT how our elections work. We WILL #CountEveryVote.”
