Actor David Harbour led the field at Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards for the harshest rant against President Donald Trump, but Stranger Things co-star Winona Ryder stole the show with her many and varied reactions to his diatribe.

Harbour, who plays police Chief Jim Hopper in the Netflix series that won Best Ensemble Drama, spoke of punching people in the face who try to destroy “the weak and disenfranchised.”

The actor began his remarks saying, “In light of all that’s going on in the world today, it’s difficult to celebrate the already celebrated Stranger Things.”

Ryder’s expression of excitement quickly changed to confusion.

Harbour continued: “We are united in that we are all human beings and we are all together on this horrible, painful, joyous, exciting and mysterious ride that is being alive. Now, as we act in the continuing narrative of Stranger Things, we 1983 Midwesterners will repel bullies.”

Ryder again appeared to not be tracking where Harbour was going.

Harbour closed with a call that brought strong applause from his fellow thespians, in a very thinly veiled attack on the Trump administration.

“And when we are at a loss amidst the hypocrisy and the casual violence of certain individuals and institutions. We will, as per Chief Jim Hopper, punch some people in the face when they seek to destroy the weak, the disenfranchised and the marginalized!” he proclaimed.

Harbour was not the only actor to go after President Trump. Ashton Kutcher opened the program by stating, “Everyone in airports that belongs in my America. You are a part of the fabric of who we are. And we love you and we welcome you.”

Kutcher’s reference was to the Trump administration’s executive order Friday putting a 90-day travel ban on those entering the U.S. from seven countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan and Yemen.

Further, the order placed a 120-day moratorium on war refugees entering the country, while the administration determines how to properly vet them. The order fulfilled a campaign pledge Trump made to implement “extreme vetting” measures.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who won Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series, also spoke out against the ban.

“My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France,” Louis-Dreyfus said. “I’m an American patriot. And I love this country, and because I love this country, I am horrified by its blemishes. And this immigrant ban is a blemish, and it is un-American.”

On Monday, Trump addressed the limited impact of the ban in relation to the overall number entering the country.

He noted in a statement released Sunday as well that “America is a proud nation of immigrants and we will continue to show compassion on those fleeing oppression, but we will do so while protecting our own citizens and border.”

He added, “To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting. … There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order. We will again be issuing visas to all countries once we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days.”
