Celebrities Call Trump an “Idiot” and Insult Limbaugh’s Cancer Diagnosis
Hollywood seemed to have a massive meltdown after Trump’s state of the union address as they tried to hurl insults to the President, from name-calling to laughing at conservative radio host icon Rush Limbaugh’s cancer diagnosis.
However, most of these celebrities admitted that they did not watch Trump’s SOTU.
In a fiery round of tweets, West Wing actor Joshua Malina called the President an “idiot.”

ther celebrities also chimed in with the snide remarks, and called the president “jackass” and “fear-mongering pig.”

While Wanda Skyes simply called the president a “jackass.” “I am not watching the #SOTU address. That jackass is not going to ruin my #TacoTuesday,” Skyes wrote.
During the SOTU, President Donald Trump also took it as an opportunity to recognize the people behind his success. One of which is political commentator Rush Limbaugh, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
This was after Limbaugh announced that he had been diagnosed with advanced “lung cancer” last Monday. In his speech, Trump honored Limbaugh’s contribution to the conservative movement. “A special man, beloved by millions of Americans.” Trump also added that the host is “the greatest fighter and winner that you will ever meet.” Limbaugh was shocked by Trump’s announcement, as First Lady Melania Trump presented him with the medal. A CNN correspondent noted that the Democrats refused to celebrate Trump’s awarding, and had remained quiet while the Republicans gave Limbaugh a standing ovation. Even left-wing Hollywood supporters made fun of Limbaugh and mocked him on social media, as actor Don Cheadle wrote “fmwl.”
Filmmaker-actor Rob Reiner lashed out on Twitter. “Only one thing to say about Rush Limbaugh getting a Presidential Medal if Freedom at The State of the Union: I loathe this fucking man,” Reiner wrote.
