Susan Sarandon Goes In On 'Trumpian' Debra Messing For Being Uninformed

We all know Andy Cohen warms his West Village apartment at night by stoking the fires of Susan Sarandon and Debra Messing’s Twitter feud, so of course he turned the temperature all the way up when the Oscar winner returned to the clubhouse.

On Monday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Sarandon stopped by to promote her new film, “3 Generations,” with Naomi Watts and confirmed that her feud with the “Will & Grace” actress is still very much alive.

“She’s not very well informed and so sometimes she gets in areas that she really hasn’t thought through, maybe? She’s Trumpian a little bit like that,” Sarandon told Cohen. “So, I don’t have anything against her personally. I just, sometimes I have to say, ‘But you don’t have the information.’”

Apparently, the two saw each other at ... we didn’t see this one coming ... a New York Rangers game, as both are dedicated fans. But, according to Sarandon, Messing had nothing to say to her in person as she chooses to save her political opinions for online.

Their social media clash started all the way back in March of 2016, when Messing tried to drag Sarandon publicly over a controversial and misunderstood interview where the “Feud” actress expressed a reluctance over voting for Hillary Clinton.

Sarandon, a fervent Bernie Sanders supporter, readily engaged with Messing, tweeting back that many Americans who campaigned for the Vermont senator felt conflicted over the choices.

“For those passionate, principled independents & first-time voters who would not be voting, if it weren’t for Sanders & whose interests HC doesn’t represent, it is a dilemma,” Sarandon replied.

Somebody inform a casting agent to start immediately combing through the résumés of young Hollywood redheads, because the way this thing is going “Feud” Season 13 already has its storyline.
