Rosie O'Donnell, Alyssa Milano and other stars respond to Michael Cohen's testimony: 'Trump is evil'

Many tweetworthy moments have come out of Michael Cohen‘s testimony before Congress Wednesday, and of course Hollywood eagerly tuned in to watch it live.

Cohen, President Trump‘s former personal lawyer and fixer, provided documents to the House Oversight Committee that he claims prove Trump committed “illicit” acts.

“I am ashamed of my weakness and misplaced loyalty, of the things I did for Mr. Trump in an effort to protect and promote him. I am ashamed that I chose to take part in concealing Mr. Trump’s illicit acts rather than listening to my own conscience,” Cohen stated under oath. “I am ashamed because I know what Mr. Trump is.” He added that Trump is “a racist. He is a con man. He is a cheat.”

Rosie O’Donnell woke up like a kid on Christmas for Cohen’s testimony, tweeting, “Trump is going down – OH HAPPY DAY !!!”
