Billy Crystal Slams ‘Hot Air’ Trump At Clinton Fundraiser
Actor Billy Crystal slammed Donald Trump over and over again during a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton.
On Monday night, the stars turned out in New York city to raise money for the Democratic presidential nominee and the 68-year old actor took jabs at Trump, calling him everything from a “human hurricane” to a “racist,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.(RELATED: Actress Attacks Trump Over ‘Lewd’ Comment He Made About Lohan In Stern Interview)
“Our goal tonight is simple: we need to raise more money than Donald Trump lost in 1995,” Crystal said. “He’s the human form of the hurricane season: starts out with a lot of hot air, gets you spinning out of control and hits America and causes a lot of damage and panic. But it’s completely over by November.” (RELATED: No, Tom Hanks Did Not Endorse Donald Trump)
“He’s like a 7/11: he’s open 24 hours and he’s trying to sell us crap that we don’t want,” he added. “Last week in the debate, he was stalking Hillary like he’s Jason in ‘Friday the 13th.’ …Trump was the boy who cried Wolf Blitzer.”
Crystal also mocked Trump over the leaked audio from a hot mic moment in 2005 on “Access Hollywood” with him and Billy Bush making lewd comments about women.
“I can say whatever I want, because I’m a star.”
The actor even included a song that slammed the Republican presidential nominee.
“No racist baiting, no Muslim hating, pantsuits for everyone, it’s Hillary tonight,” Cyrstal sang. “No border walls, no Russian pacts, everyone here has paid federal tax.”
The star-studded Broadway event featured other big names like Julia Roberts, Jon Hamm, Sarah Jessica Parker and Neil Patrick Harris. It helped raise more than $2 million dollars for Hillary, according to another report.
At one point the creator of the Broadway hit “Hamilton,” Lin-Manuel Miranda, took the stage and sang a revamped version of the hit “Ten Duel Commandments.”
“There are ten things you need to do,” Miranda sang. “You register to vote and it’s on. You post that Hillary sign up on your lawn. (Number two) Call some undecideds with your crew, your cousins in Ohio, maybe try to flip them blue.”
