Donald Trump sure hates Debra Messing

He doesn't seem to have a problem with Susan Sarandon though. How about that. Could it be because Susan Sarandon said this?

"I believe in a way she is more dangerous," Sarandon suggested without mentioning Trump's name, after Chariton asked her why Clinton's foreign policy went largely unchallenged during the Democratic primary.
 
"She did not learn from Iraq, and she is an interventionist, and she has done horrible things, and very callously, I don't know if she is overcompensating or what her trip is," Sarandon said, adding, "I think we'll be in Iran in two seconds." 
"So I'm curious to see if anyone brings up these things," she continued.
"But this is what we're fed. 'He's so dangerous. He's so dangerous,'" Sarandon said, shrugging off Trump's most controversial rhetoric as too implausible to be considered a serious threat.

Sarandon is the perfect poster girl for the delusional purity freaks who worship Bernie Sanders. They are so extreme, so delusional, that, like "Reverend Bookburn" they can't tell the difference between linking to actual journalism in the New York Times and linking to a racist rag like Quillette which has no reporting and instead all opinions - and mostly extreme right-wing opinions.

The New York Times, considered part of the "liberal media" by the Right, sometimes does publish things I disagree with. But that is more than made up for by things like the 1619 project, which Sanders supporters don't pay attention to, but I have been linking to a lot from my anti-racism web site.

But when you are an extremist a right-wing race rag and the NYTimes are exactly the same.

This is why the kind of people who love Bernie Sanders never actually change anything for the better.  They can't tell the difference between good-but-not-perfect and evil. So they rage against people like Hillary Clinton on their irrelevant blogs.

And people who have actual influence like Susan Sarandon, end up helping Trump.

The people who worship Bernie Sanders think of him as a kind of Gandalf. Unlike that bum Obama, who didn't make all their socialist dreams come true, they actually believe that all Sanders has to do to turn the US socialist is to get elected president. He's barely accomplished anything in the Senate, but they think that Bernie is Magic.

He's not magic, and if he was elected he would not make all their dreams come true. And then they would hate him too.

But Sanders supporters are so devoted to their purity that they would rather have Trump than Clinton and they find themselves on the same side as Trump, as in their Sarandon-cult hatred of Debra Messing.

It's clear that Fox News considers Sarandon their champion in her conflict with Messing. They even mention Sarandon's comment about Clinton being more dangerous. Sarandon's insane purity politics is the perfect example of the horseshoe theory. And of course her internalized misogyny makes her a darling of the Right.
