Celebrities really are just like us: Staring at their phones in disbelief as social media algorithms beam exhausting and omnipresent news. On Tuesday President Donald Trump addressed the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, in a speech that seemed to absolve the white supremacists who were there.

And as POTUS’ remarks once again raised doubts about his condemnation of white supremacists, whom he called “very fine people,” celebrities added their voices to the national conversation. And so, here are their tweets:

Beau Willimon, who adapted House of Cards for Netflix, jumped on the #ImpeachTrump trending hashtag that shot up to No. 1 in the U.S. on Twitter.

It’s the kind of political stress that makes you want to make like R&B great Lionel Richie, and consider sitting out the president’s Kennedy Center Honors ceremony.
