Stars call on President Donald Trump to resign after government shutdown

Celebrities urged President Donald Trump to resign as commander in chief following the news of the government shutdown.

Takei urged followers to join the resistance bandwagon:

Griffin posted a photo of herself with Trump and referenced her infamous beheading snap, writing, "#ResignTrump Just f—king resign, because this photo is far worse than that OTHER photo."

Midler made a Christmas wish that Santa Claus probably won't be able to grant without some outside help:

Actress Alyssa Milano tweeted about using funds for the border wall and not veterans and was swiftly countered by James Woods:

Meanwhile, "Captain America" star Evans took Trump to task over the resignation of Gen. Jim Mattis as Secretary of Defense:

"Star Wars" star Hamill mocked the president over his grammar:
