The hottest story in American politics is the current feud between Donald Trump and the mainstream media. As Trump is increasing his war of words with the press, Hollywood stars are reacting on Twitter.

Hollywood on Trump

On the day that President Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the White House in June 2015, he instantly came under fire for his controversial comments labeling illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." Following the media's criticism, the former host of "The Apprentice" made attacking the press a part of his campaign strategy.

The feud between both sides has only escalated in recent weeks, peaking during a press conference at the White House last week where Trump railed against the alleged "fake news" media. In response, the commander in chief received instant backlash, including from some of the biggest celebrities in Hollywood, which was found across Twitter on February 19.

"Better a snowflake than a MUSHROOM: small, dank, sometimes poisonous, thriving in the dark, feeding off shit, with big heads and weak roots," actor George Takei wrote on Twitter Sunday morning.

"Trump tweeted that the media is 'the enemy,' talk show host Stephen Colbert tweeted, before adding, "Assuming he meant 'the enema,' given how the media is constantly making him lose his shit."

"Trump rally right now in FL is 'an official Re-Elect Trump 2020 campaign rally.' It is sponsored by and paid for by 'Re-Elect Trump 2020,'" filmmaker Michael Moore tweeted in reference to Donald Trump's re-election rally on Saturday night.

Also chiming in was director Judd Apatow who didn't hold back his criticism of the president after responding to a picture of the former host of "The Apprentice." "He looks like he already gained thirty pounds. And he never exercises. He is not a real forward thinker," Apatow wrote on Twitter, while adding, "Doesn't believe in food science."

Actress and talk show host Rosie O'Donnell quoted the late civil right's activist Bayard Rustin with a social media message of her own. "Let us be enraged about injustice, but let us not be destroyed by it," she wrote.
