Actress and left-wing activist Debra Messing slammed the ABC political talk show The View over their decision to host Donald Trump Jr., describing the decision as “irresponsible” and “very, very disappointing.”
“The last time people did this, people ended up killing themselves,” Goldberg warned Messing at the time.
Just days after her call, Messing came under fire again for endorsing a racist sign put up by a Baptist church in Alabama describing Trump black supporters as “mentally ill.” She later deleted the tweet, apologizing for “recklessly supporting” the racist message, but insisted that the GOP targets black people for “voter suppression.”
You won’t accept this but black people are targeted by Trump’s GOP for voter supression.
Charlottesville was about Trump supporters hating POC and Jews.
@TheView Why would you bring him on? You trying to be “balanced?” He and his family have assaulted our country, our democracy, our environment, our national security, moral compass. Very very disappointing and irresponsible decision imo. #TheView https://t.co/GFImW5NsDM

NUMBER 1– I apologized for liking that church sign. I said I regret it. I shud have thought before recklessly suppprting. You won’t accept this but black people are targeted by Trump’s GOP for voter supression. Charlottesville was about Trump supporters hating POC and Jews. https://t.co/K0ch9YOQ8F
