President Donald Trump has a fondness for Twitter. After an especially busy week from the president on the platform, celebs reacted in kind. Among those hitting back at the president for his posts were Zendaya and Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui. Both stars seem to be stunned by Donald’s latest activity.
The president tweeted an edited video of himself from a professional wrestling match. In the video, Donald tackles WWE head honcho Vince McMahon, but Vince’s head is covered up with the CNN logo. The president apparently intended the tweet to be a celebration of his recent attacks on CNN. But Zendaya and Lauren weren’t having it.

“I just want you all to remember,” Zendaya wrote. “This is a tweet from the ‘president’.” Zendaya expressed her shock at the move, writing, “That’s really him…that shit is just embarrassing.” She also retweeted a hot take from Ava DuVernay about the double standards in play between Donald and President Barack Obama.
“How the fuck are you a president,” Lauren wrote in a direct reply to Donald’s tweet. She then fended off attacks from people questioning who she was. When an account for “an ad-free social network” called Gab accused her of just being jealous of Donald’s “meme game,” she shot back by addressing the real issues that concern her.
The President recently claimed in another tweet, “My use of social media is not Presidential – it’s MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL.”
