After Mitt Romney officially named Paul Ryan as his presidential running mate today (Aug. 11), celebrities were quick to respond in the Twittersphere.
From Russell Simmons' outrage to Rupert Murdoch's unconditional support and Seth MacFarlane's characteristic irreverence, here are some of the stars' top tweets...
Elizabeth Banks: "I can confirm categorically that I am NOT Mitt Romney's VP nominee. #gamechange."
Michael Ian Black: "Romney/Ryan = same initials as Ronald Reagan. THINK ABOUT IT!!!"
Andy Cohen: I really hope someone has the guts to ask Paul Ryan's stance on the KStew/RPatz situation in California. #NeedClarification
Sanjay Gupta: #43 on the list of things that make you feel old: the VP candidate is younger than you are. paul ryan was born in 1970.
Jared Leto: "Today Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan, who wants to cut Pell Grant scholarships for nearly 10 million students!"
Michael McKean: Ryan says Ayn Rand was his inspiration to enter public service, which is a little like Ray Kroc inspiring a career in nutrition.
Eva Longoria: "Romney's VP pick voted against equal pay for women and repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. We can't go backward."
Seth MacFarlane (with a picture of the Thunderbirds): The selection of Paul Ryan makes me wonder what the Romney cabinet will look like.
Michael Moore: "Channeling Bush, war supporters/military dodgers Romney and Ryan insult those who served by using battleship as their prop."
John Mulaney: Does this mean Paul Ryan won't return to "Royal Pains" next season?
Rupert Murdoch: "Thank God! Now we might have a real election on the great issues of the day. Paul Ryan almost perfect choice."
Patton Oswalt: F***! F***! Goddamit. This is bulls***. I sent that Hickory Farms gift basket for NOTHING. (Sigh). Whatever. Congrats, Paul Ryan
Kal Penn: "This is awful. I was hoping it would be Jindal so I could play him in a HBO movie"
Andy Richter: "I think saying "worst recovery in 70 years" is kinda cute. Doesn't at all beg the phrase "worst recession in 70 years."
Russell Simmons: "Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, two men who will destroy our people..."
Olivia Wilde: "Two R's won't make it right. Romney/Ryan are Wrong for America."
Today’s celebrities are basically the scum of the earth.
Of course not all of them are but it has gotten to the point where one should assume any celebrity is. The onus should be on them to prove they are not.
I’m proud to say I don’t know who most of these celebrities are and I really don’t give a da** what they think.
“Idiots say something stupid”
News at 11.
I love Michael Moore’s idiotic tweet. When did Barack Obama and Joe Biden serve, Mike? We’re still in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Kosovo and other places. Explain.
Funnily enough, a lot of freepers gone Ayatollah seem too feel the same way.
But, can Ryan spell Potato(e)? That is the most important issue!
I believe if I ever met Michael Moore and for that matter Seth McFarland, it would take some self control to keep from beating the snot out of them.
celebs react and nobody cares.They like in a fake world it’s an all me or nothing state of mind.
Well, I have to agree with that sentiment. The current president is just a few years older than I am. Now the next VP will be younger than I am... How did I get old so quickly?
Celebrities worried their celebrity in the WH will lose to someone actually competent?
Who is Russell Simmons?
Most celebrities have only high school level educations...and it shows.
The question IS who keeps these Neanderthals in business.... Sure is NOT liberals alone. Every nickle and dime the beauty of the beast Hollywood rakes in goes to some liberals campaign.
I now know this is the most devastating ticket we could have against the Left, because BOTH the MSM and the Celeberatti are terrified!!!!
SHUT UP & SING!
Their black president is doing that right now.
Funny, isn’t it? These so called “enlightened”, whom are all for gun control and “against violence” make movie after movie....with COMPLETE violence, gore and all.
McFarland will take a shot at just about anyone...left, right, Hollywood....Michael Moore is a different tub of lard. Might have to tip that cow if I saw it.
