Debra Messing Tells Susan Sarandon To ‘STFU’ In Reignited Trump Feud


One of the most unexpected political feuds to emerge in the days leading up to the 2016 presidential election is back on, with Debra Messing reigniting her Twitter war with Susan Sarandon — who, like Messing, is an avowed liberals.


As you may recall, Messing took issue with Sarandon’s unwavering support for Bernie Sanders even after Hillary Clinton was declared the Democratic nominee, with Sarandon expressing her belief that a Donald Trump presidency would be less harmful to the nation than if the former Secretary of State and First Lady were in the Oval Office.

On Wednesday, Messing, of “Will & Grace” fame, took to social media, slamming Sarandon in a series of tweets over a Variety interview headlined, “Donald Trump has, if anything, inspired more women and people of color to run for office, says actress Susan Sarandon.”

“STFU SUSAN,” wrote Messing, 50. “Oh yes, PLEASE let’s give Trump CREDIT. I mean how else are you able to walk out on the street.”

Convince yourself that that this CATASTROPHE of a President who you said was better (than) HRC (Hillary Rodham Clinton) IS NOT ripping children away from parents seeking asylum.”

She concluded: “Only a self righteous, narcissist would continue to spout off and not – in the face of Americans’ pain and agony -be contrite and apologize for your part in this catastrophe. But, you do you Susan.”

Responding to Messing, Sarandon, 71, said: “Debs, before you get yourself all self-righteous try clicking on the video and listening to what I actually say, not @Variety’s clickbait headline, which btw has no quotation marks. That’s a clue…”

“Debra has too much time on her hands,” Sarandon said of Messing. “I don’t know… She kept going and going and going. And then finally after a while I said, ‘Debra, look, report me to the homeroom teacher and let’s just stop.’ But I haven’t talked to her since.”
