Many around were watching live on TV yesterday, as President Donald Trump was sworn into office, as the 45th commander-in-chief of the United States. Not only were many protesting at the same time, the new President was also relentlessly attacked by many, especially celebrities, on social media, while holding his inauguration speech. See here below some of the reactions to yesterday’s happenings from A-list stars from the worlds of film, music, television and modelling.
Frank Ocean wrote a lengthy commentary on his Tumblr page:
“Don’t cook the books either Donald. We all know your event was dry. No matter how many times CNN anchors repeat majestic or peaceful transition of power. The world can see America divided and the chaos in the streets. Barack we love you but it would’ve been equally presidential if you would’ve just walked on out while Donald got through that struggle speech trashing your career. The majority knows man, we know you did good. We see it. The majority sees Donald for who he is too. He ain’t slick. And it’s too bad the majority doesn’t count. In any event, a first family that I can relate to will be missed. Really though.”
Model Chrissy Teigen was not very amused either and took things to Twitter.
Rihanna made it clear that she was going to miss Obama.
Comedian Sarah Silverman also took it to Twitter.
Katy Perry did not really want to see what was happening.
Chris Rock was also not very happy and advises us all to set our clocks back in time…. 300 years.
John Legend points out that not nearly as many people as for the Obama inauguration were present at this one.
Of course Michael Moore had something to say as well!
Alicia Keys gets in on the conversation as well.
Adele also salutes Obama.
