Mark Hamill slays Ivanka Trump’s Star Wars tweet in three words


We’ve discussed before that Mark Hamill is one to watch on Twitter. He knows the position he and his iconic Luke Skywalker hold in people’s hearts and he’s living up to those expectations. And bless him for it because I imagine having to be the embodiment of Skywalker all the time is exhausting. Mark is also one of the funniest celebs on Twitter and I don’t think that’s as tiring for him, I think that comes naturally. But when the two come together and he can make the perfect Star Wars joke, it’s a beautiful thing. When the punchline of his sharp-tongued, Star Wars barb is the current POTUS’ daughter, Ivanka Trump, it’s glorious. And that’s what happened this past weekend. It started on Saturday when Ivanka the Vapid posted this little ditty to her account:

I get that we are supposed to note the kid dressed as a stormtrooper but the real Star Wars connection is the overdressed couple that looks like they’ve been frozen in carbonite. Anyway, I guess this was supposed to be an endearing family pic but in actuality the parents look absolutely terrified to be in the same room as their children. Since Ivanka decided to release it to the Twitterverse, it became fair game. And Mark shot it directly out of the sky:

The title of this post said he took her out with three words, you can pick which three because I like both the caption and the hashtag equally. I can’t add anything to this, perfect caption is perfect. The Deplorables have written Mark off for this, the lamest excuse being that clearly Mark hates children. I imagine turning MAGA supporters off Star Wars is the best endorsement the future sequels have, score another one for Luke! Mark has been loudly outspoken against the current administration, especially their ridiculous social media postings. How did Ivanka think this would be missed? Mark has 3M followers, I’ll bet the majority of whom probably forwarded this to him the minute it hit the airwaves. She got exactly what she deserved.

Although I like Mark’s response the best it certainly was not the only response. The first goes to Star Wars expert, Patton Oswalt:

    I love Mark. I miss Carrie. #GoForceYourself is everything. If only we could dump Ivana and Jared into lava pits of Mustafar.

  2. AmyB says:

    This is perfect Mark Hamill – LOVE IT!

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      It was truly glorious. And it STILL hasn’t gotten “old” for me; I can reread it, and reread it, and reread it lol… BRILLIANT!

  3. jbyrdku says:

    I follow him on Twitter. I thought his tweet was hilarious 🙂

  4. Arb says:

    Is there a reason to use a disposable plastic water bottle in your own home? Jesus.

    • Elisa says:

      +1, caring for the environment is for peasants I guess.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      Likely the choice of the nanny. The kids seems surprised to see those 2 adult apparitions.

    • TQB says:

      I’m so happy I wasn’t the only one who was BS on this. Get a glassy FFS, it’s your house and I’m sure servants wash them.

  5. HK9 says:


  6. Arpeggi says:

    Foot soldiers for the nazi is an apt description. Seriously, it’s surprising to still be shocked about how freackin’ clueless complicit barbie can be. And they’re supposed to be the smart one?!?

  7. Prairiegirl says:

    When I saw that tweet, I misread ‘force’ for ‘farce’ which if you think about it works way better.

    • Esmom says:

      Ha. It does. The whole scene looks staged to me, especially the games on the couch.

      I saw all the great responses even before Hamill’s utterly brilliant roast. Heroes.

      • Lady D says:

        It really does feel staged for some reason. Plus, no responsible nanny would leave a plastic bag big enough for the baby to get his head into, laying half buried on the couch.

      • Lightpurple says:

        @Esmom, completely staged. Where’s the puppy? No way would a puppy not be part of the kids playing together.

      • hnmmom says:

        I wanted to respond to her that it looks they’ve already begun packing up their home in anticipation for a really quick move, perhaps in the dead of night. No art on the walls, nothing personal in the house, looks like someone knows this whole charade is temporary…

      • Kk2 says:

        It actually doesnt look that staged to me. You can see where the “coffee table books” are dumped on the couch and the game half opened in the way kids do. I do think she deliberately left the mess in there to make it look “charming.”

        The tweet is hilarious but I did wince a little at bringing the kids into it (yes she started it but still.) I cannot believe she seriously dressed her kid as a storm trooper. She is definitely oblivious.

      • Ramona Q. says:

        Wow Lady D – scrutinise the pic for something/anything to criticise much?

  8. Shana says:

    This made me happy

  9. ABC says:

    Eh, I find it a bit cheap. Out of all the horrible things Ivanka does this is not the one to call her out on to gain brownie points from the public.

    • Tanguerita says:

      don’t fall of your high horse, lest you damage your Stormtrooper uniform.

      • ABC says:

        I love how receptive this site is to different opinions.

      • EveV says:

        LMAO @Tanguerita.. Perfect response.
        And actually, this site is one of the few places I have found on the Internet where you CAN have a civil discussion with somebody that has a differing point of view, but, yes, any support of the orange menace or his family will get shot down quick-like. One of the many reasons I love this site tbh

    • Tiffany says:

      She supports concentration camps.

      Think about the hill you want to be on right now.

    • Jerusha says:

      She’s called out constantly. I even call her out myself. This just happens to be the one CB featured.

      • lucy2 says:

        CB has called out Ivanka for years now. This is the one she posted TODAY.

      • We need to call them out more, for example why they are barred and banned from serving on charity boards in NY. There is a reason for that. Check it out, misallocating St. Jude’s funds, fraud etc. MAN, how low can you go? Beloved St. Jude’s!!! Who does that? And they promised but NEVER gave to post 9/11 FDNY families and survivors. Unbelievable how they live with themselves. Going down soon (and not in the fun way :). It’s time. They need to leave our White House. Can’t wait.

    • Original Jenns says:

      Open to your thoughts, but I think it’s appropriate. I don’t think you should ever let people who are complicit in evil forget what you think of them. In my opinion, the daughter of a wanna-be-despot, who plays loving family while other families rot in cages, shouldn’t be allowed to feel comfortable. The entire family should be called out on everything they do, big or little. It’s the little stuff that will sting more. There should be no rest for the wicked.

    • Piptopher says:

      if your opinion is “oh yeah I forgot about the concentration camps at the border” or “climate change is a bit overblown isn’t it” then yeah I don’t think you’ll like your reception here. Difference is great until that difference is support of fascism #goforceyourself

    • Ceecu33 says:

      The children won’t called out, she was. Children should be off the table when it comes to trolling, but again the children won’t the ones insulted, Ivanka was

    • olive says:

      i don’t think mark hamill needs “brownie points” from the public. at this point he’s more than secured his spot as a beloved actor and public figure.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      what Original Jenns said.

      DO NOT let her rest, even for one second. has nothing to do with “gaining brownie points” from the public, but making sure Complicit Barbie is constantly reminded of how evil and corrupt she and her family are, and that they are the Empire in this analogy, NOT the Jedi.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Nagini constantly exploits her own kids with staged photo ops to send dog whistles to Daddy’s white supremacist base or to distract from Daddy’s misdeeds, while she profits financially from renting child size prison furniture to Daddy’s Kids in Cages program. She deserves to be dragged for it.

      • BeanieBean says:

        OMG, I hadn’t heard about the furniture. I cannot fathom the depths of their venality.

    • minx says:

      She’s a despicable phony.

      • Check out Trump SoHo, Panama, Baja, Baltimore for starters to see how terribly they treat people. Horrible, and they got away with it all. No more. Ivanka and Trumps have sold people fictional properties and kicked out the sick and elderly (even Vets) over pest complaints or being short about 46 bucks one month. NO ONE else does that! Despicable, oh and believe me, the list goes on. Can’t wait til the slave laborer and slumlords Ivanka and Jared are out of our government.

    • The Recluse says:

      And let’s not forget how Jared may have had a hand in the murder of Khashoggi too.
      These people are vile.
      If they can’t handle all of us rabble rousers in the peanut gallery, then they should have stayed away from D.C.

  10. Starkiller says:

    I’m not disputing that Hamill’s tweet is hilarious (it is), but do these famous types with millions of followers not grasp that they’re just giving these lizard people what they want, which is more attention and coverage? This is what got Emperor Baby Fists elected in the first place—the constant hysterical press coverage and response to of his every move. If he’d just been ignored like the floating turd he is in the first place, he would’ve faded eventually. The more attention these creeps get, the more it legitimises and emboldens their followers.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      eh, I disagree. the fawning coverage and free publicity 45 got during the campaign is NOT the same as calling these people out, and doing so VERY publicly.

      we cannot ignore this corrupt/evil/fascist family, we must not ignore their evil acts.

  11. smcollins says:

    Mark Hamill is an American treasure. Hats off to you, sir, and keep fighting the good fight.

  12. Christina says:

    Mark Hamill is a nation treasure.

  13. Tiffany says:

    Hamill only has 3M followers.

    What kind of world are we living in, y’all?

  14. TheOriginalMia says:

    I laughed. He’s right. It’s more like the Dark side of the Force with that family.

  15. Murphy says:

    I’m sure any Deplorable who follows Mark wrote him off long ago because he has never been shy of his disdain for the administration. Mark Hamill is a GOOD PERSON. And they’re deplorable.

    • lucy2 says:

      The deplorables likely bailed on Star Wars when it dared to focus on a woman and (gasp) non-white characters.

      • Mrs.Krabapple says:

        Yep, they see having a female lead as an attack on men everywhere, and hiring minorities as treason against the Red, White and Blue. I’ve always thought people who over-react like that were incredibly insecure and filled with feelings of failure and self-hatred — thus the need to lash out at anyone they view as “lesser” who dared to find even a tiny bit of success. I would almost feel sorry for them, except that they are such horrible people themselves that I don’t even want to give them pity.

    • Mia4s says:

      Yeah any of the Deplorables commenting were just looking for reasons to whine. This is soooooo mild compared to some of his other comments on Complicit Barbie and her Orange Nazi husband/father.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Deplorables tried to drag William Shatner into it, claiming Mark was attacking the kid. Shatner would have none of it, pointing out that Mark had taken aim at the mother, not the kid, and she deserved it.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        um…why Shatner? are they dumb and don’t realize he’s got no connection to Star Wars, or did I miss something?…

      • Jerusha says:

        @whatWHAT. The obvious answer is dumb. They support trump. What else could they be?

      • H says:

        @whatWHAT, they tweeted at Shatner because Hamill and Shatner have this ongoing Twitter “rivalry.” It’s totally fake where they tease each other about whether Trek is better than Star Wars. But sure, let’s ask the Canadian to comment on American politics. 😃

      • whatWHAT? says:

        oh, thanks for the info, H. but I think jerusha has it right, they’re dumb, too.

    • Badrockandroll says:

      @H: nuthin’ wrong with a Canadian commenting on American politics – we do it out of tough love for our neighbours (yeah, I spelled it right!) to the south!

  16. lolalola3 says:

    Mark is the best! His tweets are always so spot on.

  17. Nev says:


  18. naomipaige99 says:

    LMAO! I think that was friggen brilliant!!!! Love Mark Hamill

  19. Teebee says:

    I love how her measly 55k “likes” were DWARFED by the hundreds of thousand ♥️ for Mark. I know it’s a completely unscientific and unsubstantiated method of pulse-taking, but me thinks the tide turned on this clown car family and they will be shown the door very soon…

    • naomipaige99 says:

      I can only hope. But, I’m not going to put the cart before the horse, because I’ve been disappointment with/by these characters too many times already.

  20. DaisySharp says:

    It was great. Anyone who doesn’t like it all I can say is; cry harder.

  21. Sojaschnitzel says:

    That’s the best burn I’ve seen in ages. Mad respect. And the shade is more than well-deserved.

  22. Jessica says:

    Absolutely brilliant! Hilarious! I wonder if Ivanka see/reads any of the comments. I sure hope so.

    • DaisySharp says:

      Probably not regular comments, but when Luke Skywalker @’s you, you know about it.

  23. supersoft says:

    This is smart, funny, and a total burn into the ground with three words.
    The original post shows that Miss Fake-Blondie doesnt even understand the concept of those movies. As a hardcore Star Wars fan this makes me cringe on so many levels.

  24. Mignionette says:

    This was hilarious and well deserved.

    It is well known that Ivanka’s cronies are policing anyone who negative tweets her. My twitter was locked for calling her a see you next tuesday in a ‘I am saving Africa’ propaganda tweet.

    It seems that Ivanka really hates being called a see you next tuesday.

  25. Mego says:

    Saw it yesterday and thought it was hilarious and on point. Bravo Mark!

  26. ChillyWilly says:

    Haaaa! I love Luke Skywalker! And of course Nagimi’s spawn is a storm trooper and not a jedi. Evil empire indeed.

  27. Sean says:

    Almost as good as the time he read Trump’s tweets as The Joker.

  28. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    That furniture is too large for the room. Money can’t buy good taste.

  29. Busybody says:

    Oh man…I read this post just to find out if Mark Hamill’s three words were “Stormtroopers are gestapo.” These idiots don’t even get the basics of pop culture.

  30. serena says:

    I love Mark and his witty comebacks, but mostly I loved the fans’ reactions and how they roasted Ivanka lmao.

  31. JanetFerber says:

    He said the words of God. Bless you, Mark Hamill!!!!

  32. iconoclast59 says:

    Is that Michelle Phillips with Mark in the last photo?

    • Mia4s says:

      That’s Marilou, his wife of 41 (!!!!!!!!!) years.

      (That shouldn’t be so incredible, but it’s Hollywood and 41 years and three apparently sane and decent kids is a freaking miracle.)

  33. MJ Lucid says:

    That family is full of Sith…..
