How Mark Hamill, Kathy Griffin and Other Celebrities Reacted to Donald Trump's Thanksgiving Press Conference

#DiaperDon is trending on Twitter as Donald Trump is ridiculed for his Thanksgiving press conference.

The president held a Thanksgiving press conference in the White House, addressing the media from behind a small table, leading to mockery from some corners of social media.

The hashtag started when the Twitter account of political website MeidasTouch.com tweeted a photo of a seated Trump captioned "#DiaperDon" which very quickly gained a lot of attention.

A number of celebrities have joined in on the name-calling, as many vocal anti-Trump voices reacted to the press conference.

"#DiaperDon. Pass it on," comedian Kathy Griffin tweeted.

Star Wars legend Mark Hamill added: "Maybe if you behave yourself, stop lying to undermine a fair election & start thinking of what's good for the country instead of whining about how unfairly you are treated, you'll be invited to sit at the big boy's table. #DiaperDon."

"What a big baby. Someone needs his wubby. #DiaperDon," actress Aisha Tyler said.

"Phase 1 of Operation #DiaperDon is complete. Get him accustomed to smaller furniture, so he won't notice when they move him to the miniature imitation White House in January," author Michael Moran said.

Jason Isaccs of Harry Potter fame added: "It's appalling that #DiaperDon is trending #1 worldwide and upsetting #Trump. Using the phrase #DiaperDon is stooping to the kind of moronic behavior that has so degraded his office for 4 years. Using #DiaperDon more than once in a tweet will only perpetuate this."

The president has since railed against Twitter because the hashtag is trending, which seems to have had something of a Streisand effect, causing more people to take notice. The result of which was many more blue tick accounts using the hashtag multiple times to keep it trending.

Trump tweeted: "Twitter is sending out totally false "Trends" that have absolutely nothing to do with what is really trending in the world. They make it up, and only negative "stuff". Same thing will happen to Twitter as is happening to @FoxNews daytime. Also, big Conservative discrimination!"

Trump also called for Section 230, which protects website publishers from liability for third-party content under U.S. law, to be "immediately terminated."

"Twitter is sending out totally false 'Trends' that have absolutely nothing to do with what is really trending in the world," he tweeted. "They make it up, and only negative 'stuff'. Same thing will happen to Twitter as is happening to @FoxNews daytime. Also, big Conservative discrimination."

The president did not explain why Section 230 was considered a national security issue.

Trump has frequently suggested that Twitter algorithms are being rigged against him, however, Twitter says trend results are tailored for individual users based on accounts they follow, their location and interests.

Oscar-winning actress Patricia Arquette responded: "Do you mean #DiaperDon is trending?"

Billy Baldwin mocked Trump, retweeting him saying: "For purposes of National Security, #DiaperDon must be immediately terminated!!!"

Queen As Folk star Hal Sparks tweeted: "Wait...how would.. #DiaperDon be trending? Clearly someone at Twitter is intentionally trying to make @realDonaldTrump look bad because....oh................s***.......... and lot's of it."

A number of people condemned the mockery, with some of the president's supporters coming to his defense.

"RT if you think Section 230 should be repealed! I DO! #Section230 @realDonaldTrump," author Scott Fishman tweeted.

YouTuber Mark Dice backed up the president's calls to terminate Section 230.

"If Republicans lose the Senate, then section 230 will be amended by the Democrats to mandate platforms MUST remove "hate speech" and "false info" or face huge fines. That's how they'll shut down Parler and other new social media apps that support free speech," he said.

Author Anthony Shaffer added: "This is absolute fact! @jack has his minions setup the artificial bubbles of fake trends to distract from the actual reality in which we live...his trends are pushing (or distracting from) narratives..."

During Thursday's conference, Trump spoke about conceding the election and said that he will leave the White House if the Electoral College formalizes President-Eeect Joe Biden's victory even though he claimed it would be "a mistake."

He also had a sharp exchange with a reporter who interrupted him.

"Don't talk to me that way, you're just a lightweight," Trump said as he pointed at the reporter. "I'm the president of the United States. Don't ever talk to the president that way."

Clips of the exchange have been viewed at least a combined eight million times online as of Friday morning.

Additionally, Trump refused to say whether he would attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, despite mentioning he would concede after an Electoral College decision was finalized.

"I don't want to say that yet, I mean I know the answer, I know the answer," Trump told reporters. "I'll be honest, I know the answer, I just don't want to say it yet."
