#ImpeachTrump: Rosie O’Donnell & Hollywood React To Nancy Pelosi’s Bold Move Over Whistleblower Complaint

The long straining political dam finally broke today as Hollywood cheered the probe opened by the House Speaker against POTUS Shutterstock

“Thank you, thank you Nancy Pelosi,” Rosie O’Donnell proclaimed on social media Tuesday as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the top elected Democrat in the land, announced the start of an official impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump.

O’Donnell, the longtime nemesis of the former Celebrity Apprentice host, was far from the only member of the Hollywood community to go online as the straining political dam finally broke this afternoon at 2 PM PT with Pelosi giving a live address to the nation.

Within seconds, #ImpeachTrump was trending at the top of Twitter.

After long resisting what some still see as the electorally suicidal desire of many Democrats, the third in line for the Presidency Pelosi had just come from a meeting with her caucus, and as the Senate moved to a unanimous vote asking for the Trump administration to hand over information about a complaint made by a supposedly high-level whistleblower in the intelligence services. That complaint was based on remarks and promises Trump made this summer in an apparent phone call with newly elected Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Trump has admitted to having made the call and also admits to having asked for a probe into Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s business dealings in the former Soviet republic. However, with his UN speech overshadowed by the growing scandal, Trump offered again to release a transcript of the conversation. He also said he did not use millions in U.S. military aid as a bargaining chip.

Needless to say, Trump’s wig was blown off today by Pelosi – and he took to Twitter to say as much:

A former TV comedian, the Ukrainian President actually played it straight in his most recent posting. In statesmen mode on Tuesday, Zelensky put up an excerpt from his remarks at the UN on “a new world without poverty, hunger, ailments and wars.”

We’ll update with more Tinseltown reactions to the impeachment probe news as more of the town posts. In the meantime, here’s Rosie, an Evil star and some happy dancing others:

While not strictly Hollywood, once frequent cable news guest and bestselling provocateur Ann Coulter took a slightly different POV on the impeachment news.
