On Tuesday, Jan 30, President Donald Trump delivered his first State of the Union address and covered everything from tax cuts to immigration.
As he boasted of the current strength of the U.S. economy and called for certain restrictions, his address was met with a mixture of reactions from celebrities.
Pitch Perfect 2 star Elizabeth Banks stated that music helped ease her frustration with the address.
I tried. I listened but the amount of BS and stunts and questions raised that will never be answered made me throw my remote and now I am listening to Tom Petty and am a better American for it. #SOTU

Late Night Show host Stephen Colbert poked fun at the address by stating that Trump's attention will soon be directed elsewhere.
Somehow, Trump will claim that there were more people in the room for his State of the Union than Obama's. — Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) January 31, 2018
Artists such as Big Boi and Questlove also weighed in with their funny tweets.

Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak and former Vice President Dan Pfeiffer joked that no one would actually want to listen to the lengthy speech.

This speech is going to be longer than the new Migos album — Dan Pfeiffer (@danpfeiffer) January 31, 2018
Meanwhile, comedians Patton Oswalt and Sarah Silverman weren't too happy with the Trump's implication of the Las Vegas shooting that occurred in October 2017.
Trump using heartbroken families and actual heroes of conscience to get applause for his horrifying, cowardly policies is instantly poisonous and embarrassing. #SOTU

I was told darkness could not exist in the light. But here it is, for everyone to not see.#SOTU — Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) January 31, 2018
Ashley Judd weighed in on Trump's statements in regards to immigration by hoping that everyone could eventually be accepted in America.
My vision for America is one in which everyone is welcomed, regardless of religion, race, or country of origin. It’s people who make America great, not bigoted policies. #StateOfTheDream

While there were many negative reactions to President Trump's first State of the Union address, he did receive praise from Ann Coutler and Chuck Woolery.
GREAT SPEECH. Beautifully delivered. I think he's covered everything. Look for the exit signs, start proceeding directly to them. — Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) January 31, 2018
A great speech filled with new hope and prosperity for all Americans. No matter what color, creed or religion. Just as it should be.
