Over the Fourth of July weekend, actress and left-wing activist Debra Messing bashed musical talent Kanye West for potentially running for the White House in 2020 and “taking” “black voters” away from former Vice President Joe Biden.
In a tweet from an account that has since been protected, @TheRickyDavila tweeted to Messing: “To be clear, Kanye West is a redhat [sic] wearing MAGA Lunatic, so if he’s wanting to run for the Presidency, it’s probably a plan between [T]rump and Kanye to strip whatever support they can away from Biden as a last ditch effort. That’s what I believe.”
Messing was in agreement, and went a step further. The “Will & Grace” star said it was “disgusting” for West, who is black, to “take … black voters from Biden,” who is white.
The comment sparked the ire of Nina Turner, national co-chair of socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) presidential campaign.
“You just can’t stop dipping can you [Debra Messing]? Your connotation is racist,” said Turner, who is black.
“1. Black voters are not owned by anyone,” she continued. “Our vote should be earned every election cycle. 2. We can think for ourselves & don’t need your help. 3. Sometimes it’s best to stay out of family business.”
