In recent days, Donald Trump's lackluster response to the hurricane in Puerto Rico has cause the president a constant headache. After lashing out in defense of himself on social media, Trump's critics took time to fire back.

Trump on Puerto Rico

It didn't take long for Donald Trump to make enemies with the celebrities out in Hollywood. Rewinding back to his campaign announcement back in June 2015, the former host of "The Apprentice" quickly came under fire after referring to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." In response, the majority of the mainstream media held Trump's feet to the fire, while Hollywood reacted with overwhelming negativity.

In the two years that have followed, actors, musicians, directors, and more have not been shy about using their popularity to call out the billionaire real estate mogul, with Trump often responding in opposition. Actors have made it a habit on targeting the president during award shows, with the most recent example occurring at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards. Over the weekend, Trump continued his outrage against the media and the Democrats for criticizing his response to the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, resulting in massive backlash from many celebrities on social media on October 1.

In a series of tweets over the last 48 hours, Donald Trump went after the "fake news" media, the Democratic Party, and even the Mayor of San Juan in an attempt to deflect away from his administration's questionable actions in helping those on the island.

"Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico," Trump tweeted out, before claiming that "they want everything to be done for them."

Not stopping there, Donald Trump went on to accuse the Democratic Party of forcing the San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz to say "nasty" things about him.

In addition, Trump expanded his attack on Cruz, while also doubling down on his criticism of the news media, and even blaming the fact that Puerto Rico was surrounded by "big water" for the troubles the White House has been having.

Hollywood reacts

Not long after Donald Trump lashed out on social media, critics in Hollywood responded.

"70-ish attention-whore misogynist narcissist now gets to play golf instead of reflect on his sins. Oh, and OJ Simpson's been released," comedian John Fugelsang posted.

"Trump complains the folks in Puerto Rico want 'everything done for them' —as he pushes a button in the Oval Office to order a Diet Coke," actor George Takei tweeted. In a follow-up tweet, Takei added, "Now we all know what a 'bad hombre' really is.

Shame on you, Donald."

"Donald Trump, the master of self-congratulation. His picture should be next to NARCISSIST in the dictionary," author Stephen King tweeted out. "Trump's Saturday: 21 tweets * Several rounds of golf * 1 U.S.

territory insulted/neglected * 0 moments of true leadership," director Adam Best posted. As the backlash continued, it highlighted the growing opposition against Trump, especially from the stars in Hollywood.
