'They Look Small': Sanders Says Celebs Are 'Delusional' About Trump's First Year
Members of Hollywood's self-proclaimed resistance took turns lambasting President Trump ahead of his first State of the Union address.
The "People's State of the Union," organized in New York Monday night by actor and outspoken Trump critic Mark Ruffalo - included speeches from Michael Moore, John Leguizamo, Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Cynthia Nixon.
"We have created the mother of all movements. ... We ain't stopping with Trump, OK?" said Ruffalo.

Moore said Trump must be removed from office as a "moral imperative," while Leguizamo drew a parallel between the Nazis' approval ratings in Germany in the 1930s and Trump's.
On "Fox & Friends" Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said celebrities and many on the left are putting out a "negative" and "delusional" message about President Trump.
"The economy is booming, ISIS is on the run, we're remaking the judiciary. This has been a historic year any way you look at it," she said, adding that she believes the American people are noticing the economic growth.
Sanders said Hollywood is "out of touch" with voters in Middle America and the anti-Trump critics are missing an opportunity to help unite the country.
"I almost feel sorry for these people. They're so focused on hating this president that they're missing all of the great things that are happening in this country. ... They look small and it's impacting them in a much more negative way than it's impacting the president because he's doing great, he's in great spirits," she said.
