This time around, stars took to Twitter to praise for Biden — as a path to victory appeared to emerge for the Democratic nominee.
“How bizzare is it to hear a sane man after these last 4 years,” wrote John Cusack. “It’s almost weird to hear the sound of coherence.”
“I clapped alone in my apt. RELIEVED,” said Billy Eichner.
“A strong, steady, reasoned President-elect spoke to the nation, and I felt the collective exhale,” said “Will & Grace” alum Debra Messing. “America has spoken. The most Americans in US history. She voted for Change. It’s going to be ok.”
“Quiet,” Josh Gad wrote online. “There’s a President speaking.”
“‘Sleepy Joe’ all you like, @realDonaldTrump,” Jeffrey Wright posted. “Joe Biden is the captain now.”
“The president spoke and it actually made me feel better than i did before he spoke!!!!” said Ben Platt.
Alyssa Milano shared a simple quote from Biden’s speech: “We are opponents — not enemies.”
“Nice to have a human again,” said Dylan O’Brien with a red heart emoji.
In reference to Biden being joined by running mate Sen. Kamala Harris on stage, comedian Natasha Rothwell said: “I will be processing the fact that there is a black woman on the stage right now for the foreseeable future.”
