Despite Donald Trump hosting Celebrity Apprentice, since he announced he was running for president, he has not had much support from celebrities.

This culminated in a collection of them organizing the "People's State of the Union" to counter the President's State of the Union address. But Sarah Huckabee Sanders doesn't think people care what the anti-Trump celebrities think.

The event, meant as a message of resistance, was held Monday in New York City. It featured such celebrities as John Leguizamo, Michael Moore, Cynthia Nixon, Rosie Perez, and Mark Ruffalo. Speeches revolved around unity, women's rights, immigrants, the LGBTQ community, and people of color.

"This is the United States of America, not the divided states of America," Leguizamo had said during the event. "Make America great again. Really great. Not just for the white and the wealthy and the male and for a stupid slogan on a hat. But for all of us."

Sanders, the White House press secretary, made an appearance on Fox & Friends on Tuesday and gave her thoughts on the event.

"Their message is one of negativity, and frankly, I think, a little bit of delusion," she said. "Look, we've had an incredible first year. The economy is booming, ISIS is on the run, we're making the judiciary. This has been a historic year by any way you look at it."

Brian Kilmeade, a Fox & Friends co-host, asked her if Trump is bothered that so many celebrities, including ones who he'd formerly been friendly with, were speaking out against him.

"Look, I think, if Americans cared what celebrities thought, then Hillary Clinton would be president," she stated. "But they clearly don't."

As is the M.O. of this administration, Sanders continued to go back to the election, harping about Clinton losing. She noted that the former Secretary of State had brought "every A-list, B-list, C-list celebrity she could find to help her build crowds," yet "it didn't matter" because voters wanted a president who would "shake up" Washington.

She also believes that those in Hollywood are "out of touch."

"Frankly, I feel sorry for these people," insisted Sanders. "They're so focused on hating this president that they're missing all the great things that are happening in this country.

"They look small, and it's impacting them in a much more negative way than certainly it is impacting the President."
