Hollywood Erupts over Sessions Resignation: 'Final Purge Begins,' 'Dems Get Ready to Fight'

Hysterical Hollywood celebrities hit the panic button Wednesday following news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned.

After news of Jeff Sessions’ resignation broke, celebrities immediately erupted, wondering what it means for special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and the future of the President Donald Trump’s administration.

“Trump fires his attorney general. We all know where this is heading. Trump will fire the Special Prosecutor & have all his evidence & files either locked up or shredded. Lame-duck House Repubs will destroy anything that could lead to Trumps impeachment. DEMS! GET READY TO FIGHT!” Michael Moore said.
