Lets starts with Debra Messing, then we’ll move on to Ashley Judd.
After President Trump took his oath to become our 45th president on Friday, actress Debra Messing (known for her role on Will & Grace) decided to join millions of Americans who have committed themselves to the “Wall-of-Us Campaign” by repeating the same oath as the president, only with a slight modification. Instead of swearing in as president, they take the oath as “an American.”
The oath: “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute my role as an American, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
According to the Wall-of-Us site, the oath aims to “make it simply irresistible for Americans to become active participants in rebuilding our democracy.”
The creators of the initiative include a group of producers, directors, and actors. They are calling on as many people as possible “to join wall-of-us in taking the oath on Inauguration Day.” They consider this a movement and ask participants to “live the oath and take action”
The header at the top of the site boldly reads: “He promised a wall. He will be stopped by a wall of us.”

Messing and several other famous names have received backlash for using the Constitution to undermine President Trump and disrespecting America’s democratic process. One person even reminded Messing that the Electoral College is part of the Constitution, the one to which she is pledging.
@AdamBaldwin should we tell her Electoral College and the 2nd Amendment are in the Constitution she just pledged to?

Not being able to withstand the heat, Messing removed the video from her Twitter account. Clicking on the link above will result in this message: “Page not found.” But in today’s day and age there is a copy of everything. Take a look at the video on Youtube.
The oaths of a few more celebrities can be viewed below:
