It's been ten long, scary, disheartening days since Election Day, and we'd like to say that the news that Donald Trump would be our next president has gotten easier ...
Nope. Still sucks.
One of the worst things about the Trump presidency -- and to be clear, all the things about it are the worst things -- is how hard it's divided the country.
And we're not just talking about how it's separated racist, misogynistic bigots from people with actual sense.
As sad as it is, even people who stood against Trump are now turning against each other in these troubling times.
In this case, we're talking about people like Susan Sarandon and Debra Messing.
To give a little background. Debra has always been a loud and proud supporter of Hillary Clinton, while Susan was all about Bernie Sanders.
When Hillary won the primary, well, that did just not sit well with Susan, and though Bernie urged his followers to stand with Hillary, Susan was just like "nah."
In an interview in March, Susan even suggested that Trump would be a better president than Hillary.
"Well, you know, some people feel Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately," she said in real life. "If he gets in, then things will really explode."
Susan was right on that one: things sure are exploding. It doesn't seem to be the charming revolution she had in mind though.
After Susan gave that quote, Debra tweeted that "the idea that Susan Sarandon wud say that NOT supporting HRC in a HRC/Trump race is a legitimate choice for Democrats, is insane."
Susan maintained that, for Bernie supporters, a Clinton vs. Trump election would be "a dilemma," and then on November 1st, she publicly endorsed Jill Stein.
This woman actually said "Now that Trump is self-destructing, I feel even those in swing states have the opportunity to vote their conscience."
Where's a good "bitch, please" gif when you need one?
So obviously things didn't work out at all like Susan expected, and now she's trying to hold on to the last little bit of hope that everything won't go to hell in the next four years.
She responded to a tweet urging people to never forget how awful Trump is with "True but reach out in dialogue to those who voted for him."
"We can't afford a blanket judgement of them. We need allies in that camp. Possible."
And that was a statement Debra did not feel good about.
"JESUS CHRIST," she wrote in response. "NOW she wants to give racist, islamophobic, homophobic, sexist, mysogynists a chance! 'Pure' 4 Bernie. F-CK everyone else."
Susan hit back with "No, never excuse hatred, but how do you move forward in a climate of hate when you only expect the worst of an entire group of people?"
Then Debra wrote of Susan "She encouraged ppl to vote for Trump over HRC on a news interview. Said she was more 'dangerous.' She needs to be held accountable."
When someone suggested Debra was threatening Susan (LOL can you imagine?), Debra clarified "Dangerous!? Hell no!"
"I wud like her to say that she regrets not simply saying that she's voting 3rd party vs. saying a revol with DJT cud be *thumbs up emoji*."
Instead of admitting that though, Susan chose to ask Debra to tweet something about the Dakota Access pipeline protests, and Debra agreed, so all's well that ends well?
We guess we'll just have to see.
