Trump working from ‘alternative Constitution,’ celebs say on Funny or Die

Hollywood stars — including Susan Sarandon, Dulé Hill and Constance Wu — are mocking President Trump in a new video, saying the commander in chief is using an “alternative Constitution” to develop executive orders.

The bit plays off of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway’s use of the term “alternative facts” during an interview last month to defend the White House’s statements about the president’s inaugural crowd size.

“There sure has been a lot of hullabaloo going on with President Trump’s last executive order,” Shailene Woodley says to the camera in a Funny or Die video released Thursday.

It also halts the nation’s refugee program for 120 days and pauses the acceptance of refugees from Syria indefinitely.

“Well, we finally have an answer why Trump is doing this,” says actress Jamie Chung.

“He’s working from the wrong Constitution, and he doesn’t even know it,” model Cara Delevingne says.

“Of course, Trump felt justified banning green card holders,” the entertainers say, joking that the “alternative” Constitution states, “They with cards of green should be kept away by any means, by wall, or force or with magic beans.”

“It looks like many have tried to destroy the alternate Constitution. But it has some sort of dark, magic protecting it,” says Sarandon, an outspoken supporter of Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein during last year’s White House race.

“Finally, it all makes sense, right? He’s not making these moves because he’s an idiot; he’s making these moves because he’s looking at all the wrong stuff. Poor little guy,” says Lizzy Caplan of “Masters of Sex.”

“So please, if anyone’s watching who might be near President Trump, swap out his cursed Constitution for a real one as soon as you can,” says Hill, who played a presidential aide on “The West Wing.” “It’s truly for his own good. If he doesn’t, he’s bound to keep making embarrassing mistakes, like he did this weekend.”
