Celebrities React to Donald Trump’s Guilty Verdict in Hush Money Trial

Former President Donald Trump is now a convicted felon, with a Manhattan jury finding him guilty of all 34 charges against him of falsifying business records Thursday (May 30) following a seven-week trial.

The verdict makes him the first ex-POTUS to ever be convicted with a felony, which, in Trump’s case, involved covering up a $130,000 payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels in an attempt to keep her from divulging their alleged sexual encounters during his 2016 White House bid. After losing to current president Joe Biden in 2020, he remains the Republican party’s frontmost candidate in the 2024 race.

Trump now awaits sentencing, most likely facing a fine or a prison sentence of up to four years. All will be decided at a court date scheduled for July 11, but in the meantime, people all over the world are taking to social media to share their reactions to the historic news — including some of the world’s stars.

One of them is Barbra Streisand, who shared the news shortly after it broke. “Convicted felon Donald Trump is blaming the judge, the jury and New York for being found guilty on 34 counts,” she tweeted. “He will never accept accountability for his crimes. Americans must not allow this felon anywhere near the White House again.”

More musicians, actors, comedians and public personalities have also posted reactions to the verdict. Some have joined the public in simply tweeting “GUILTY,” like Glee‘s Kevin McHale and musician Lalah Hathaway.
