It was inevitable: Donald Trump & Debra Messing are tweet-beefing now

Accidentally Brave Opening Night

There was another mass shooting in Texas this weekend, and the East Coast braced itself for the landfall of Hurricane Dorian. But of course one of the biggest stories ended up being… Donald Trump’s feud with Debra Messing. Debra Messing is a longtime Democrat and supporter of many progressive causes. Mostly, Debra just beefs with Susan Sarandon, which is kind of funny and weird in its own way. But this story, like everything in the Trump Era, is pretty bonkers. It all started when the Trump re-election campaign announced that they would be doing a fundraising swing through California this month. Trump will be part of massive fundraisers in San Francisco (ick) and Beverly Hills, right around the Emmys. So Debra Messing was curious – who in the Hollywood community would actually attend a Trump fundraiser and donate thousands of dollars to this fascist?

On one side, it does make me uncomfortable to think that people would be “targeted” for abuse and public shaming for donating to a political campaign. On the other side, it IS public information and if you donate to Trump, you absolutely deserve to be publicly ridiculed. Debra makes a good point – if you’re so proud to align yourself with white supremacy, misogyny, hatred and putting babies in cages, surely you wouldn’t mind your neighbors and coworkers knowing that about you too? But of course Trump had to respond.

What’s tragic is that he tweeted this after the Texas mass shooting. And clearly, he was deeply involved with hurricane preparedness for the Southeastern coast. So involved that his mind wandered and he just had to attack Debra Messing. Also: I love how everyone pointed out that Debra Messing has won Emmys and Trump never did. LMAO.

Anyway, Debra loved it and she’s now using the added attention to fundraise for all of her favorite causes and all of her Hollywood friends are sending her love and support. Meanwhile… are we ever going to see the list of Trump donors??

    No, I assure you, he was not deeply involved in hurricane preparedness. He was golfing the entire weekend whenever he wasn’t incoherently tweeting. I assume you were being sarcastic.
    PS. I love Bradley Whitford.

    I know he was democratically elected but I’m really sorry for the world he’s USA President he makes so many of your previous ones look better in hindsight — that’s a bar set low enough for cockroaches. Between Hong Kong, Brexit and Italy it’s like an endless nightmare, please 2020 be the year the world wakes up.

    • Sean says:

      He wasn’t, though. Russia hacked select voting machines in key areas to tip the electoral college in his favor.

      • Jten says:

        Unfortunately he’s still the US President, there are some advantages to living in a country that has compulsory voting, makes that kind of manipulation more difficult. (Doesn’t mean you get the party you want though)

      • Betsy says:

        This. It is regretful that he got any votes at all, but I will go to move grave secure in the belief that the actual outcome was precisely what the polls showed: a landslide victory for the Democrats.

        I’ll go one further and repeat my hunch: the GOP has been stealing elections for almost 20 years. Evidence of the his was found in the Russian hack of the GOP’s emails and this is why they do whatever Russia asks.

      • Jten says:

        Sadly I can’t edit out the democratically elected – I don’t disagree that there is corruption and interference in the US election, the point was the current abuse of power the world is facing and the depressing push to the right.

      • Anne Call says:

        Clinton won by almost 3 million more votes. Ugh, this country is a mess.

  3. Nev says:

    He picked the wrong one. Debra isn’t having it. Hahahahhahahahaha

  4. SM says:

    She is right. People need to put in more thought into who and what they support politically. And after they do, they should support only the causes they are willing to put their name to.
    On a side note, I think in his little empty racist head he still understands that if he stayed in showbusiness he would still be willing to get away with so much and could still enjoy some of that pretend esteem people around him used to show him.

    • Esmom says:

      She’s absolutely right. It’s extremely telling that people would feel the need to keep their support of Trump secret. Shame on them.

    I cannot stand DM, bur she has a point. Aside from being a loser and a pri**, DT, is a narcissist f**k!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Digital Unicorn says:

    Good for her. Also Dump seems to be getting fatter and more orange every time he’s seen in public. I wonder who is embarrassed to be photographed with who?!?!

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Cheeto, who is as big as a blimp, (and getting bigger by the day) finds the forgotten daughter, Tiffany, to be too overweight to be seen with now. Apparently, in his demented mind, he is a “perfect specimen” 🤢🤮

  7. Lynn says:

    Bradley Whitford is a gift. That is all.

  8. Sarah says:

    And to think that just a few years ago, I was watching episodes of VEEP, thinking it was a tad unrealistic.

    • Ye says:

      I just watched the last two seasons of Veep for the first time, and I felt they didnt go far enough, Trump’s seasons in the WH have been much wilder.

      • Sarah says:

        I am two seasons behind and I solely Parmesan Putin and his nightmare of an administration for that. I have a hard time watching the show, knowing what’s going on in the real White House.

  9. Louise says:

    Let me guess who’s going, chachi, Kanye, Jon voight, and dean cain, to name a few.

  10. bananapanda says:

    For the record, ALL political contributions over ~$200 are public listed on the FEC website(s). It’s campaign finance law.

    The only way around this – if people donate to political PACs which take dark money and/or political parties.

    • Tiffany says:


      I know there is paper trail of my political contributions and I know I can sleep at night not being ashamed of them when I am asked about it.

  11. Mickey Rooney Mara says:

    But but Susan Sarandon.

  12. SJR says:

    Twitter needs to ban Trump and shut him down.
    Reason? He should be at his desk at work as POTUS, listening to his advisors.
    Jumping frogs, Trump is a complete failure in every way.

  13. Stacy Dresden says:

    The Right Wingers don’t understand that the rest of us will never forget their support of this administration as long as we live.
