Debra Messing Trashes Susan Sarandon For ‘Your Part’ In Trump Election

Women: So catty! Say, why don’t you break it up already, ladies!

The gentler sex has their claws out once again in a (checks notes) classic battle between one woman’s progressive politics and another’s radical leftist agenda.

It’s a girl-on-girl clash of (checks notes again) an outspoken left-wing activist-actress versus an explosive Bernie-or-Bust Hollywood icon.

On Wednesday, Jewish “Will and Grace” star Debra Messing rang in the new year by verbally smashing Susan Sarandon over a statement the latter star made about President Trump. Sarandon has long promoted her relatively far left-leaning politics since supporting Ralph Nader in the 2000 election, and taking on the role of activist-celebrity since the early days of her career. More recently, she promoted Bernie Sanders to the point of gleefully suggesting that a Trump win would have a positive jarring effect on the country, in March 2016. Sarandon, though much maligned by many of her left-leaning peers for her comments, remained steadfast.

But where there’s a will, there’s a grace: Debra Messing took to Twitter today with a shockingly direct rebuke of Sarandon.

Messing “went off” as the kids say, going on to indirectly label Sarandon “a self-righteous narcissist.”

The punctuation usage is a little off. But the diss may be right on target.
