The stars are seething with contempt for anyone they can point blame at for having a hand in the Capitol riot. Some are just outright disgusted. Others are speechless. Here are their comments:
The singer is “heartbroken and astounded” by Trump’s actions.
It is time for the leaders of this country to invoke the 25th Amendment. Isn’t it obvious? Today has made me sad with disbelief with what is happening in my country, a country that has inspired my songs of hope and love.

The singer, who is the child of two veterans, said the riot was a result of “Unpatriotic hypocritical sheep drinking poison Kool aid.”
As a United States Citizen, and the daughter of two veterans, and the sister of another, I am ashamed of what is happening in Washington. Hypocrisy, shame,
Embarrassment. Unpatriotic hypocritical sheep drinking poison Kool aid. This a sad day for America.

Sarah Jessica Parker
The Sex in the City star had maxed out her Twitter character limit blasting the lawmakers she believes encouraged rioters.
But no surprise.
So many to hold responsible. You know who you are.
You dismissed the violent, divisive, cruel rhetoric. You made excuses.
He/you are not leaders.
We will try to re-build. You will try to live with yourselves

The Patriot actor wants Trump flushed “round the U-bend of history forever.”
Last June peaceful protestors against a racist murder were beaten and gassed near the Capitol. Today Trump thugs stormed the building unchallenged, directly from a rally where he deliberately stoked their violence with lies. May he be flushed round the U-bend of history forever.

The model’s political views don’t align with her in-laws.
Accepting the results of a legitimate democratic election is patriotic. Refusing to do so and inciting violence is anti-American.

Just think of the carnage had they not been white.
