What Mark Ruffalo, Kathy Griffin And Other Celebrities Said After Trump's Premature Election Victory Claim

America—and the rest of the world—are currently on tenterhooks waiting for the U.S. election count to be finalized.

The race is tight, with Joe Biden and Donald Trump needing 270 electoral college votes to take the White House.

Biden was defeated in the key state of Florida but did manage to flip Arizona blue.

Millions of mail-in ballots are yet to be tallied in states like Pennsylvania however, which many predict will be skewed in favor of Biden.

The nature of the race has led to uncertainty over a clear frontrunner due to the increased number of mail-in and absentee ballots cast this year.

Trump prematurely declared victory already in the early hours of Wednesday morning despite the vote count being unfinished in a number of states.

These factors combined with typical election anxiety have seen endless reactions from politically vocal celebrities on Twitter.

Charmed actress and vocal Democrat Alyssa Milano urged her followers to remember that every vote counts despite Trump's early assertions.

"Trump might claim that he won," she tweeted. "If he does that, please remind yourself and others that politicians can say anything they want. It doesn't make it true. #CountEveryVote #EveryVoteCounts."

Fervent anti-Trump actress Bette Midler tweeted the president's The Apprentice catchphrase "you're fired" back at him.

"Make America Great Again? what a joke. He turned the greatest nation on earth into a s***hole country," she wrote. "And Drain the Swamp? He added a whole new bog, a marshland, quicksand and a sump! and filled it with the lowest lowlife ever seen in DC. #YOUREFIRED."
