Hollywood proved last night on Twitter that it's not famous for its brains. Here are ten of the stupidest responses from actors and comedians on what they thought about CNN's GOP Debate.
The initial response ranged from confusion to mockery:
Actors Patton Oswalt, Tom Hanks and Emma Watson apparently didn't know what was happening on their television screen.
Comedian and writer for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Mike Drucker, made this joke in poor taste:
Nothing weird about all the candidates standing in front of a giant phallic symbol with the word "Reagan" written on it. #GOPDebate— Mike Drucker (@MikeDrucker) September 17, 2015
Actress Martha Plimpton (Raising Hope, Goonies) also made a crass joke:
I had Chinese food for lunch today, and I'm cutting farts with more nuanced approaches to foreign policy than the GOP candidates.— Martha Plimpton (@MarthaPlimpton) September 17, 2015
Voice actor Josh Gad (Frozen) wrote:
The only thing that could make tonight more insane is if the Plane behind them took off and a Zombie Reagan ate their bodies. #GOPDebate— Josh Gad (@joshgad) September 17, 2015
Hot Button Issues: Immigration and Abortion
Comedian Kathy Griffin bashed the GOP as racist and "scary":
Wow, these #GOPDebate candidates are scary. They can dress up their rhetoric however they want, but, um they just hate Mexicans.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) September 17, 2015
Oh, and defunding Planned Parenthood will bring America back into the Dark Ages apparently:
Ok, #GOPDebate. Defund planned parenthood??? Any1 remember REALITY B4 Roe v Wade? These candidates all need a Pap smear right now!— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) September 17, 2015
Again, comedian Mike Drucker made an unfunny "joke:"
"Wah wah women have vaginas we don't own." #GOPDebate— Mike Drucker (@MikeDrucker) September 17, 2015
Comedian and actor Arsenio Hall managed to make a joke about abortion and Governor Mike Huckabee in one fell swoop:
"Blob Of Tissue" should be the name of Gov Mike Huckabee's autobiography!— Arsenio Hall (@ArsenioHall) September 17, 2015
But what was more insane was the GOP's response to the issue of global warming:
Some celebs managed to weigh-in on a debate they weren't even watching!
Without watching the #GOPDebate Poor = evil Immigrants = evil Abortions = evil Environment = evil Guns = gr8 War = gr8 Rich ppl = God— Lucas Neff (@RealLucasNeff) September 17, 2015
On the other hand, some celebs were charitable:
In no particular order... I thought Rubio, Fiorina, Jeb & Christie were the strongest tonight. I like Carson too! #RepublicanDebate— Mario Lopez (@MarioLopezExtra) September 17, 2015
