Hollywood celebrities could barely contain their emotions as former President Donald Trump (R) arrived at a New York court Tuesday for his arraignment in his alleged Stormy Daniels hush money case brought by Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D).
Showbiz elites including Jimmy Kimmel, Jeffrey Wright, Chris Meloni, Ellen Barkin, Larry Charles, Mark Hamill, and Mia Farrow weighed in on Trump’s court appearance, offering a range of emotions, including glee, anger, and snark.
“Locked him up,” MGM’s No Time to Die star Jeffrey Wright tweeted.
“I just wanted to write it… UNDER ARREST IN NYC,” Ellen Barkin gloated.
“M-aking A-rraignments G-reat A-gain,” Mark Hamill tweeted.
As Breitbart News reported, Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records brought by Bragg. Contrary to expectations, New York State Supreme Court Judge Juan Merchan didn’t impose a gag order on the former president, which would have prevented him from publicly commenting on the case.
Trump has repeatedly stated that the Bragg’s prosecution is politically motivated as the former president continues to perform strongly in polls heading into the 2024 presidential race.
ABC’s late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel posted a photo of Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and snarked “When all your dads end up in jail.”

NBC’s Law & Order: SVU star Chris Meloni ranted at Trump supporters.
We will however:
blame everyone else
Never take responsibility for anything
Will take credit for everything
And NEVER accept the consequences of my grift and ineptitude https://t.co/3P4d88UGeg

Netflix’s Grace and Frankie star Ethan Embry posted a profane, unhinged rant.
Let’s go. Keep this momentum moving.
Hit him with what he deserves Fulton DA Willis.
Fuck him up with what he asked for Special Council Smith.
Tie his little mushroom headed cock up in criminal proceedings and then fuck his corrupt family.

Borat director Larry Charles was more cynical, predicting that Trump will emerge unscathed.
