Transparent star (and fellow Emmy winner) Jeffrey Tambor was backstage with Soloway at the time, and added: "By the way, ditto, ditto and ditto on everything you said."

Donald Trump has yet to comment on Soloway's remarks, but one can only assume a tweet is being drafted—presumably with the words "dopey" and "wacky" in the mix.
