Hollywood actress Debra Messing blasted President Donald Trump in a brutal attack Tuesday on Twitter. She linked that with a deceptively edited video claiming President Donald Trump called the coronavirus a “hoax” and asked if the supporters of the president, she says will die from the virus, realize now that he needs to be removed from office.
The left-wing entertainer posted: “LIAR-IN-CHIEF. #Maga have been unmoved by the 16500 lies 45 has made since elected. Now that innumerable people (including MAGA) will die, because of his lies and inaction, I wonder if MAGA will recognize that 45 must be voted out?”
Beyond that she retweeted a post by co-founder of the Democratic Coalition Scott Dworkin saying: “BREAKING: “A lot of people are gonna die. A lot of people,” Trump just said. “I’ve always known this was a pandemic.” That’s a lie. But if Trump did, why was his response so awful and slow? Trump acted like this was gonna disappear. Once again Trump has completely failed America.”
In addition a Fox News report stated:
The total number of confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus worldwide has now surpassed 200,000, according to Johns Hopkins University, while the death toll has topped 8,000.
Trump has been criticized by many in both Hollywood and politics for downplaying the severity of the virus as cases began to pour into the United States. The video Messing shared contains sound bites of the president saying things like, “We have it totally under control.”
And Breitbart would take things a step further:
Spreading fake news and hating Trump supporters seems par for the course for the Will & Grace star, who backed Joe Biden for president earlier this month in a rambling video.
Messing claimed last month that President Trump “puts Americans in mortal danger.” The actor said this while tweeting a two-year-old Washington Post article about proposed budget cuts to the CDC that never happened.
Today Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel ripped Messing for her comments. The RNC chair declared, “At a time when ALL of America should come together, Hollywood liberals are still launching unhinged attacks on @realDonaldTrump supporters. It’s appalling”

During times of grave danger, politics inevitably come into play.
