It’s not exactly news that there are celebrities who don’t like Donald Trump. But the stars of Fox’s Batman origins show Gotham,  have a special kind of hate for the President-elect.

The collective cast of the crime show don’t just think Trump is defective but downright dangerous.

Robin Lord Taylor,  who plays Penguin, has signed up to House of Cards creator Beau Willimon’s weird anti-Trump organization Action Group Network.

Cory Michael Smith, who stars as the Riddler, frequently posts hostile tweets about someone he thinks is an ‘asshole’.

Erin Richards, who plays mad nightclub owner Barbara Kean in the show, couldn’t vote in the election since she’s Welsh. But she’s big into making scatological references and re-tweeting Hitler comparisons:

Ben McKenzie (who plays Commissioner Gordon) and Morena Baccarin (Dr Leslie Thompkins) are a couple in real life. No mistaking where their sympathies lie:

At least Sean Pertwee, another Gotham Brit, seems to be having more fun at Trump’s expense than his castmates:

Irish-Canadian actor Donal Logue- Harvey Bullock in the show- does tweet about other things than Trump but at a recent talk at Manhattan’s Paley Center, he declared he considered American politics to be as apocalyptic as Gotham‘s twisted universe:

While the Gotham cast may hate Trump, at least they’re not bringing the Donald into the show. Oh hang on, the Penguin (aka Oswald Cobblepot) had “Make Gotham Safe Again” as his campaign slogan, a hat tip to Trump’s  “Make America Again”:

Robin Lord Taylor, who plays the Penguin told New York Comic Con recently: “I think the ‘Gotham’ writers are writing our actual reality right now, and that’s probably the scariest thing you can possibly imagine.”
