Susan Sarandon, Debra Messing’s Feud Over Presidential Election Escalates

“Well, you know, some people feel Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately. If he gets in, then things will really explode,” Sarandon, 69, said during an MSNBC interview on Monday, March 28. After facing some backlash on Twitter, she clarified her remarks and said she would never vote for the GOP presidential front-runner.

Nonetheless, the controversial comment agitated Debra Messing, among others. The actresses exchanged words on social media on Tuesday, but the tension grew after Messing, 47, retweeted a post that read: “@DebraMessing = national treasure. @SusanSarandon = national embarrassment.”

Sarandon spotted the interaction, and replied: “.@DebraMessing now RT-ing personal attacks. Cool. Right, the diff is I’m not RT attacks on u to 350K+ followers.”

Messing deleted the retweet but continued to voice her political opinions. She even directly tweeted at Sarandon while attending Clinton’s LGBT event at the Capitale in Manhattan on Wednesday night.
