Donald Trump places a great deal of emphasis on fame and fortune. Yet ironically enough, many of his fellow celebrities have had less than kind words for the president. Here are seventeen in particular who took a stand against the Donald.

17. Chelsea Handler

Late-night comedian Chelsea Handler had some choice words for the president following his complaints that his daughter Ivanka was being “mistreated” by Nordstrom after the company decided to cease carrying her clothing brand. Handler to twitter to sarcastically compare Nordstrom's rejection of the first daughter to the president's shutting out of Muslim immigrants.

Since the Nordstrom debacle, Handler's criticisms of the Trumps have not died—she's stated Ivanka should be ashamed for refusing to comment on allegations of sexual misconduct towards her father, and was quick to point out how little Trump understands climate change.

16. Alyssa Milano

Actress Alyssa Milano has never been a big fan of the president. But upon his meeting with Britain's Queen Elizabeth II , her distaste seemed to grow. Sharing a video of the president ignoring and blocking the elderly monarch's way on twitter, Milano called the president “disgusting”.

“She's ninety-two years old,” Milano stated, referencing Trump's blatant disregard and disrespect  for the queen. “You're incapable of acting like a human being. You're incapable of being a leader.”

15. Dave Grohl

Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is not without his criticisms of the president. In an interview with GQ UK, the rocker put it very simply: “Trump just seems like a massive jerk.” He added some more meat to his criticisms: “Today, the American Dream is broken. I’ve probably travelled internationally more than our current president and the one thing I understand that he doesn’t is that the world isn’t as big as you think it is. It is all in your neighbourhood. India, Asia, Iceland aren’t other solar systems. I am ashamed of our president. I feel apologetic for it when I travel.”

Grohl's criticisms of the president are  very fitting: upon the 2016 election, an image of his late bandmate Kurt Cobain was circulated in which a 1993 quote predicting and endorsing a Trump presidency was attributed to the late rock legend. A quick google search disproves the existence of such a quote, and highlights how unlikely it would be for Cobain to be a Trump fan in the first place.

In the linear notes for Nirvana's final album, he urged racists and homophobes like Trump to stay away from his music: “If you’re a sexist, racist, homophobe or basically an a–hole, don’t buy this CD. I don’t care if you like me, I hate you.” Were the grunge star alive today, it's guaranteed he'd be one of the loudest of the president's critics.

14. J.K Rowling

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has a Twitter presence to rival the president's. Yet this seems to be where their commonality ends. She has been a vocal critic of the president's homophobia, sexism, and xenophobia, considering him even worse than her creation Lord Voldemort, a murderous, racist dark wizard.

And she's just as capable as he is of playing the internet game. In May 2018, the fantasy writer took to Twitter to troll the president: she presented a side by side of an image of the crowd at the 2017 inauguration and an image of the crowd outside the church where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding took place, poignantly captioning it “love> hate”. And, being a writer, she's quick to point out Trump's grammatical errors—when the commander in chief mixed up the words “pore” and “pour”, Rowling quote tweeted it with raucous internet laughter.

13. LeBron James

In September 2017, the president dis-invited Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry to the White House, via Twitter as all good world leaders do. The president stated that Curry was too hesitant to accept the “great honor” of being invited to the White House, and therefore, his invitation was revoked.

Laker LeBron James was not having it. “U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite,” James pointed out. Then he said what many Americans have been thinking for a long time: ” Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!”

12. Stephen King

Horror writer Stephen King has created no shortage of nightmares in his writing career. Yet none of them are as scary as the Trump presidency—even to the man himself. “I know that American voters have always had a real attraction to outsiders with the same kind of right-wing ‘America First’ policy,” King told NowThis in July. “And if that reminds people of Trump, I can’t be sorry because it was a character that I wrote. It was a boogeyman of mine, and I never wanted to see him actually on the American political scene, but we do seem to have a Greg Stillson as president of the United States.”

King's most recent release, The Institute, has been noted to largely be an allegory for the current American political climate. In a story in which children are separated from their parents, it is hard not to see that its writer is criticizing Trump's actions on the border. Additionally, the horror master has no time for questioning Trump's motives with Ukraine. “Trump tried to use blackmail and coercion in order to torpedo the candidacy of the man he saw as his chief roadblock to a second term,” the author tweeted. “Case f—ing closed.”

11. Lady Gaga

Pop singer and LGBTQ+ activist Lady Gaga had some choice words for the president. Following his ban of transgender servicemen and -women, Gaga took to twitter to tear into Trump.

“The message you have just sent has endangered the lives of people all over the United States and overseas bravely serving our nation,” Gaga tweeted, pointing out how the ban devalues the bravery and service trans military men and women provide, and that singling them out encourages the discrimination and isolation the trans community already faces. “Sincerely, did you know of the group you singled out today, 45% of them [transgender individuals] ages 18 to 24 have attempted suicide already?” Gaga asked the president.

10. Eddie Vedder

Like his grunge contemporary Dave Grohl, Pearl Jam front-man Eddie Vedder has been vocal in his criticism of Donald Trump. In posters for a Montana Pearl Jam gig, the president was depicted as a corpse being picked at by America's symbol, the bald eagle.

Additionally, at a June 2018 performance in the Netherlands, Vedder dedicated a song to the president-sort of. We got one for ya, and it has nothing to do with, let's say someone like Donald Trump,” he said. “Absolutely has nothing to do with that… I wouldn't want to waste my breath. But it is interesting you know; how does it feel when you've got a world leader that insults all of your allies and, kind of, people with good intentions representing their people. But then he gets along famously with dictators and despots. I don't know what to make of that. That's just really disturbing. And I don't think he's crazy like a fox…I think he's like, crazy like a narcissistic motherf—r. Anyway, this song is not about him!”
