Former Pussycat Dolls member Kaya Jones tweeted that Trump was the "Best President ever!" and Robert Davi called the State of the Union address "inspiring."

Other celebs attacked the president.
Bette Midler blasted Trump on Twitter with a post calling him a liar.
"Where does he get the stats from? Stephen Miller?" she wrote. "He lies so much, why should we believe him tonight or ever? He THREW PEOPLE OFF food stamps, and didn't 'lift' people off welfare, he kicked them out to join the homeless."
Rosie O'Donnell, who has a long-running feud with Trump, echoed Midler's words.
"oh my god where is the lie counter?" she tweeted.
