Just read a few of the crazed rants from your crazier relatives on Facebook and you’ll know that this election has really brought the batshit out. But the crazy came out of nowhere last month when Susan Sarandon and Debra Messing served up some piping hot ginger beef on Twitter. To make a long wreck of a story short, Susan Sarandon, who is the Den Mother of the Bernie Bros, did an interview where she said that some Bernie Sanders supporters are saying they would rather vote for Donald Trump than Hillary Clinton. Susan says that those words were spun into the headline: “Susan Sarandon Hearts Donald Trump 4Evah!”
Many went after Susan Sarandon, but nobody really went harder than #ImWithHer team member Debra Messing. Debra tweet slapped at Susan and Susan tweet slapped at Debra and it kept going. Susan stopped at one point to rest up her fingers for round 450. But Debra must’ve injected meth into her fingers tips and blasted “Eye of the Tiger,” because she kept going and tweeted for her life. Susan was on Watch What Happens Live last night and a caller asked her about her Twitter battle against Grace Adler. Susan decided to verbally slap a trick a few times.
If you can’t watch that, here’s a few choice quotes:
“Did I talk to her offline? No. It was enough to talk to her online.”
“And she has a lot of followers. I guess. I don’t know.”
“Debra just has too much time on her hands. She just kept going and going and going.”
“Finally after a while, I said, ‘Okay, Debra, look, just report me to the homeroom teacher and let’s just stop.’ But she did not.”
HAHAHAHAHA… But really, this election is just… I mean, one of the stars of one of my favorite movies from the 90s (Thelma & Louise) and one of the stars of one of my favorite TV shows from the 90s (Will & Grace) are throwing shit at each other on and off Twitter. I don’t know whether to blame Twitter or the election or both. The only way this could get any weirder is if Geena Davis and Megan Mullally get into a Snapchat fight about the election. I don’t know exactly what a Snapchat fight is, but I’m guessing it involves lots and lots of filters.
