Nine months into his presidency, Donald Trump isn't very popular. According to a weighted polling average tabulated by data-aggregating website FiveThirtyEight, Trump has a lower approval rating at this point in his presidency than did any other commander-in-chief since modern polling began. His popularity is even waning among rural Americans, who have long been his most ardent supporters.

His approval rating among liberal-leaning Americans is much worse, of course. According to a recent poll by the Pew Research Center, only 8 percent of Democrats approve of the president. Among the estimated 92 percent of Democrats who oppose Trump are a number of celebrities, many of whom have used their platforms with the press and on social media to voice their displeasure. As Trump's presidency has worn on, many have called for his impeachment.

The latest to do so was Judd Apatow, who tweeted Wednesday morning that the president should be removed from office before he can start a war with North Korea.

Though plenty of celebrities have publicly critcized the president, here are some who have gone so far as to call for Trump's removal from office.

Judd Apatow (again)

Apatow also tweeted that the president should be impeached after Trump insisted that NFL players be forced to stand during the national anthem.

Cardi B

The rapper compared Trump's sins to those of President Bill Clinton, who was impeached in 1998 though not removed from office.

A host of celebrities called for the president's impeachment in August following the tragedy in Charlottesville, which Trump blamed on "both sides."

Nina Dobrev

“Hopefully he’ll get impeached. Or indicted. Or both," the actress told Harper's Bazaar in August. "He just doesn’t act like a president. He acts like a reality star on a terrible, horrible show that should never be aired,” she continued. “And he’s responsible for incredibly important decisions for the country that I live in, so my opinion does matter whether or not I had a chance to vote.”

Alec Baldwin

The man who plays Trump on Saturday Night Live called for the president's impeachment in the wake of his tepid response to the devastation in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria.

John Legend

The R&B singer called for Trump's impeachment in May. Both Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, have been active on Twitter in their criticism of the president. In July, Teigen was blocked by Trump for replying to one of his tweets with, "Lolllllll no one likes you."

It's not just celebrities who feel Trump is unfit for office. Harvard University’s Center for American Political Studies and research marketing firm Harris Insights and Analytics found in August that 43 percent of Americans feel that the best way to respond to Trump's actions in office is to impeach him. That same month, a poll by the Public Religion Research Institute found that 40 percent of Americans supported impeachment. As long as Trump continues to attack the NFL and tease a war with North Korea, these numbers probably won't be dropping any time soon.
