'What a time to be alive!' Lizzo, Elizabeth Banks, Padma Lakshmi and Cher lead liberal celebrities rejoicing on social media at Trump's impeachment - while Jon Voight hits out at 'evil Democrats' (15 Pics)

Celebrities have flooded social media with posts celebrating the news that Donald Trump has been impeached.
Lizzo, Cher, John Legend, and Bella Thorne were among those racing to share the news with their fans, with Jordyn Woods tweeting: 'What a time to be alive!'
Also cheering on the impeachment was Cole Sprouse, who called for a 'celebration', while Alyssa Milano struck a more moderate tone, writing: 'This is a terrible day in our country's history. But a great defense of our democracy'.  
Trump found few celebrity supports, though Oscar winner Jon Voight did theatrically denounce Democrats as 'evil'.   
'I expected this moment but I expected to be more joyful. Maybe jump up & do a happy dance. Maybe. But I'm just sad and heartbroken,' Alyssa Milano tweeted

'What he's left behind can't be erased with this vote. The bigotry and xenophobia he's emboldened. The lies. It will take generations to recover.'   
The House held two separate votes - one on each article of impeachment. Pelosi presided over the votes and largely kept her party in line. And she silenced a few Democratic lawmakers who cheered the outcome with a flick of her wrist. The speaker made it clear before the vote she did not want Democrats to be celebrating what she considered a grave constitutional matter.
The vote on the first article of impeachment - abuse of power - was 230 to 197. The vote on the second article - obstruction of Congress - was 229 to 198.
And while Milano was one of the few who expressed their worry, the bulk of celebs found themselves celebrating the news. 
Singer John Legend, who has previously feuded with the the president, welcomed the news and called for 'this evil man' to be convicted in the Senate.
He tweeted: 'Thank you to the House of Representatives for doing your constitutional duty. Everyone please call your senators and tell them to remove this evil man from office.' 
'He wanted to make history,' comedian DL Hughley chimed. 'HE DID!! 1st President EVER to be #IMPEACHED IN HIS 1st TERM!!'
The joke is not entirely accurate, because 17th President Andrew Johnson was impeached during his only term in 1868.

Director and Trump critic Rob Reiner tweeted: 'This President is not being Impeached because he's a liar or immoral or a misogynist or a white nationalist or incompetent or ignorant.
'He's being Impeached because he committed the High Crimes of Abuse of Power & Obstruction of Congress.' 

Elizabeth Banks retweeted a link sharing that President Trump was the only President to graduate from Penn and also be impeached.
