It’s the political battle of the redheads, Y’ALL!
Susan Sarandon and Debra Messing are in a straight up “who’s the most liberal” Twitter war, and it got UGLY. The whole thing began when Sarandon did an interview on Chris Hayes’ MSNBC show, All In. Here’s the exchange that got the controversy-ball rolling:
SARANDON: I think Bernie would probably encourage people to [support Hillary if he loses] because he doesn’t have any ego in this thing. But I think a lot of people are, ‘sorry, I just can’t bring myself to [vote for Hillary].’
HAYES: How about you personally?
SARANDON: I don’t know. I’m going to see what happens.
SARANDON: Really. It’s dangerous to think we can continue the way we are with the militarized police force, with the death penalty and the low minimum wage and threats to women’s rights and think you can’t do something huge to turn that around. The country is not in good shape if you’re in the middle class. It’s disappearing.
A lot of people thought Sarandon was coming close to saying Democrats, liberals and progressives should stay home from the polls if Hillary Clinton gets the nomination. Sarandon was widely criticized for her “blind privilege,” by the likes of Jamie Lee Curtis and even more aggressively, Debra Messing:
The fact of the matter is that Susan is not advocating voting for anyone other than Bernie Sanders, even if Clinton gets the nomination. And it’s a tough place to be considering the repubs looking for nominations are the truly cringe-worthy Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.
What do YOU Think about this feud?!
