There’s a lot of going in the news right now: another mass shooting in Texas, catastrophic Hurricane Doria, and the amazon is still burning. So Donald Trump’s head is exactly where it should be: in a Twitter fight with Debra Messing. And he’s taking it alllll the way back to the 2000s talking about when Debra congratulated him on his show The Apprentice. Weird flex, but okay?!
It all started when Debra asked for the names of who is going to a Trump fundraiser in Beverly Hills during Emmys week.
Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know. https://t.co/YV4UoxrPHI

I am proud to be a donor when I contribute to a campaign. I am happy to be listed when I attend a fundraiser. I am assuming anyone who donates to Trump’s fundraiser would feel the same. Why wouldn’t they?

That’s all it took and as Debra’s other arch rival Susan Sarandon probably quietly whispered, “Whoop that trick!“, in Trump’s direction, he tweeted:
I have not forgotten that when it was announced that I was going to do The Apprentice, and when it then became a big hit, helping NBC’s failed lineup greatly, @DebraMessing came up to me at an Upfront & profusely thanked me, even calling me “Sir.” How times have changed!

Trump’s tweet seems to show confusion about why Debra doesn’t like him anymore, EVEN AFTER SHE CALLED HIM SIR…. fifteen years ago. Someone should explain to SIR Trump that times have changed a bit since Debra Messing congratulated him. Back then, Trump was a reality TV show host whose biggest decision was deciding if Gary Busey or Lil’ Jon made the best kite. And now he’s our overlord.
Debra Messing then found out that a Twitter fight with Trump leads to lots of notifications. I’m sure the responses were mostly kind and generous offerings of support, or those who disagreed did so in a way that was thoughtful and respectful. Debra covered all her bases in her response by posting one on Twitter and Instagram.

So! I woke up this morning to my phone notifications going crazy. I got scared. I thought “Oh NO! Don’t tell me there is a 3rd mass shooting this weekend! Don’t tell me the Bahamians have lost their homes, their Lives by Hurricane #dorian! It was Trump. NOT CALLING McConnell and demanding an end to the recess, and an emergency meeting to pass the gun violence bills passed by the House months ago. NOT reversing his decision to move $155 MILLION DOLLARS from FEMA Disaster Fund to ICE. Nope. What was on Trump’s mind in the midst of such tragedy, was me. The LAST thing that should be on his mind or in his tweets. #25thamendment (SWIPE).
Does Debra even need to see a list of the owners of the lips that will be pressed against Trump’s ass at that Beverly Hills fundraiser? And yes, I now have the image of James Woods, Clint Eastwood, Kelsey Grammer, Suzanne Somers, Jon Voight, and Kanye West fighting to suck Trump’s ass.
But the real tragedy here is that Trump probably had to take a break from golfing to drag Debra Messing on Twitter. How dare Debra!
