Hollywood Reacts to the Border Crisis: ‘President Trump Should Be Sent to Prison’

Alyssa Milano, Kathy Griffin and other leftists went on vulgar rants after agents used tear gas

Actress Alyssa Milano (pictured above left) has once again made her feelings about President Donald Trump clear in the wake of the latest attempts — some violent — by illegal migrants to cross the United States border.

Several men from the Central American migrant caravan on Sunday attempted to pry apart some of the United States’ border fencing to enter the country illegally — and they followed this up by throwing stones at our country’s border patrol agents.

As a result, border patrol agents responded by shooting rounds of tear gas to defuse the situation.

Although the tear gas was aimed at the men throwing the rocks, wind picked up some of the gas and pushed it toward those further away.

After hearing about this, Milano went on a profane rant on Twitter.

She wrote to President Trump on Twitter, “You tear-gassed women and children, a******! And on Thanksgiving weekend, you piece of s***, a******, motherf***ing, evil-creature-person!!”

In the tweet she was responding to, President Trump wrote, “Would be very SMART if Mexico would stop the Caravans long before they get to our Southern Border, or if originating countries would not let them form (it is a way they get certain people out of their country and dump in U.S. No longer).”

“Dems created this problem. No crossings!”

In her tweet, the “Charmed” star conveniently ignored why tear gas was being used in the first place.

She ignored that the people who caused our agents to use it were entering the country illegally.

Controversial comedian Kathy Griffin also responded to Trump on Twitter and wrote, “You evil piece of s***!!!!”

She later tweeted, “These asylum seekers should be welcomed to our country and President Trump should be sent to prison.”

Singer John Legend also weighed in, simply writing, “Evil.”

Plus, celebrity astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson tweeted, “Albert Einstein was a refugee to the USA.”

Tyson ignores the important fact that Einstein entered the country legally — and also that the family of the Boston Marathon bombers were also refugees; the status does not guarantee someone is a good person.

Comedian George Lopez, who recently had a scuffle with a Trump supporter, also expressed the same viewpoint as his peers with a repost of CNN commentator Ana Navarro on Instagram.

Navarro’s post read, “I can’t get this image out of my mind. Yes, we have a right and duty to protect our borders. But we can’t do so by shooting tear gas at innocent children. The world is watching. And for all those politicians that love to y’all about their Christianity and quote Bible verses, God is watching too. This is not who we are, America.”

Once again, Hollywood appears to misinterpret the situation.

Not everyone has to agree on every political situation — but perhaps some of these celebrities could at least do a better job of keeping it civil and being intellectually honest about what really happened.
