Millions of eyes across the nation were on the GOP debate on Wednesday, and that included both supporters and critics in Hollywood.

As the media analyzed every word uttered by lead candidates Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Paul Rand, Carly Fiorina and Jeb Bush, stars voiced their opinions on social media.

Tom Hanks, Emma Watson and Patton Oswalt watched CNN’s coverage of the debate from the set of “The Circle,” wearing concerned and “confused” expressions as they posted a selfie.

Minnie Driver hoped that someone would put Air Force One, which the candidates stood in front of throughout the debate, to good use. “Does that plane work? Can it take them all away at the end to place where everyone is white and there are no women,” she asked on Twitter.

Comedian Kathy Griffin made no secret about who her mother was voting for at least. “My mom would only vote for Donald Trump if she was extremely drunk. She is #ReadyForHillary,” she tweeted as the debate kicked off.

Meanwhile Maria Shriver, former First Lady of California, pointed out that there are several people “running for President who have never held any office before.”

Like many Americans, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna was driven to drink by the debate, and Jesse Ventura suggested the candidates chill out and smoke some weed.

The debate also sparked hilarious hashtags such as #MakeASongGOP, which suggested “Shine on You Crazy Donald” and “End of the World as We Know it,” as Trump’s theme song.

Scott Walker referred to reality show “The Apprentice” when he slammed real estate mogul Trump by saying: “we don’t need an ‘Apprentice’ in the White House we have one right now,” and the phrase quickly sparked a Twitter trend reiterating his opinion.
