— -- Following President Donald Trump's announcement Saturday that he plans to skip April's star-studded White House Correspondents' Dinner, many celebrities took to Twitter to celebrate his decision.

Comedian Kathy Griffin tweeted, "Shhhh. This is r big chance! We sneak in #Obama & #Hillary, tell Trump he's "president of United States of Mar-a-Lago" & #resist #Indivisible."

Longtime Trump nemesis Rosie' O'Donnell was less kind, tweeting, "seriously - u need to get help."

And comedian Billy Eichner, who regularly tweets anti-Trump comments, implied the president is thin-skinned, writing, "HAHAHAHA WHAT A SNOWFLAKE."
