Donald Trump has proven to be unpopular with celebrities time and time again. Today is no different, as members of the Hollywood elite like Lady Gaga, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and John Legend have berated the President using harsh words, to say the least.
After the POTUS criticized the mayor of San Juan, Yulin Cruz, as well as other officials from Puerto Rico, many of the stars above came out to defend those in the nation.
According to Trump, in Puerto Rico, there has been “poor leadership ability by the mayor of San Juan and others in Puerto Rico” because they were not able to get their workers to help in humanitarian efforts in the American territory.
Trump added that due to incompetence, the US had to send 10,000 federal workers to the devastated region.
I this it's clear where the 'poor leadership' lies @realDonaldTrump Puerto Rico is part of the United States. This is our responsibility.

He added politicians in the ravaged nation “want everything to be done for them” when it would be better as a “community effort.”
Lady Gaga hit back in response, saying, “It’s clear where the ‘poor leadership’ lies,” while John Legend wrote, “Trump continues to dominate the s***iest-president-every-competition.”
Another person told him, “you’re going straight to hell. No long lines for you.”
