Some of the president's most famous critics are convinced he's "toast."

Hollywood and media stars alike are more confident than ever that President Donald Trump should and will be impeached.

The latest cries for lawmakers to start the proceedings to legally remove Trump from the Oval Office comes in response to a Buzzfeed News report citing two law enforcement sources alleging Trump directed his former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. The article dropped Thursday evening, and it was a top trend on Twitter by Friday morning.

More bombshells from the report as special prosecutor Robert Mueller continues to investigate and build a case supporting suspicions that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.

Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. “Make it happen,” the sources said Trump told Cohen.

And even as Trump told the public he had no business deals with Russia, the sources said Trump and his children Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. received regular, detailed updates about the real estate development from Cohen, whom they put in charge of the project.

Additionally, Buzzfeed reported Cohen spilled all this to Mueller's team himself, which promises to make his public testimony in front of Congress next month even more fascinating.

Patton Oswalt, Rosie O'Donnell, Alyssa Milano, David Simon and Kathy Griffin are among those who think the Buzzfeed News report is a clear sign Trump -- as Milano put it -- is "toast." Or as longtime critic O'Donnell put it Thursday night, "He is f--ked."

Former Fox News star Megyn Kelly tweeted that she considers the article Buzzfeed's finest work to date, and added, "Bottom line: IF 100% true, Trump’s in serious trouble."

Broadcast journalist icon Dan Rather has been providing thought-provoking political commentary since Trump took office, and his latest analysis casts a bleak outlook on the rest of the president's term. "If true, the Buzzfeed story is a political earthquake," he tweeted Friday morning. "Caution: we really know little; Mueller knows much. Time to be steady, let facts lead us to truth. But at almost every turn in this national nightmare, implausible has become plausable. The walls do appear to be closing in."
