Hollywood liberals are outraged over President Trump's participation in a ribbon cutting ceremony for a 100,000-square-foot Louis Vuitton factory in Texas on Thursday.

Trump, his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner joined Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton LVMH chairman-CEO Bernard Arnault and other Louis Vuitton executives at the ribbon cutting ceremony in Alvarado, Texas. Trump was in Texas to hold a campaign rally.

Celebrities were beside themselves. "I wonder what [Trump] has to gain from that. Maybe Ivanka's going to get a year's worth of free bags," said actress Ellen Pompeo.

Actress Debra Messing tweeted:

"Just so you know, Trump is at a Louis Vuitton opening while 10s of 1000s of Kurds — who were forced to flee their homes — try to find a safe place to survive as refugees."

She was referring to Trump withdrawing American troops from Syria, leaving America's allies, the Kurds, to fend for themselves.

It is not unusual for a U.S. president to participate in ribbon cutting ceremonies for hospitals or government buildings. But a president participating in the opening of a high end luxury brand smacks of hypocrisy, critics say.
