Susan Sarandon’s arch liberal rival Debra Messing says she regrets appearing on Megyn Kelly‘s premiere performance on Today. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Debra made the bold political statement in the most direct and unequivocally bravest way possible, by burying it in a comments thread on a picture she posted on Instagram of a bowl of cucumber slices captioned “Snack time! #presstour”.
Debra posted a picture of cucumbers on her Instagram page and when someone asked her why she was on Megyn Kelly’s show, she answered back and said she regrets it and was “dismayed“at Megyn’s jokes.
Well, my grandmammy always did say “there’s nothing like a bowl of cucumbers to fuel a culture war”. You’ll remember that ex-Fox news reporter and black Santa denier Megyn Kelly kicked off her stint on Today by making a lazy gay joke followed by a shady gay joke while the cast of Will and Grace’s dignity slowly seeped out of their pores (maybe that’s what the cukes were there for, to soak up the toxins).
Debra seems like a real “please like me type” (see also: Lea Michele, Anne Hathaway), so maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that she was only regretful after somebody called her out on her shit. Earlier in the day she was happy to retweet Sean Hayes’ picture of the cast cheesing it up with Megyn in the studio.

Something stinks like a rotten cucumber. Sounds like Debra might be full of shit about not knowing that Megyn was the host (everybody else seemed to know, it was her big debut and all!) or she’s full of shit about liking cucumbers as a snack. Look, they’re fine but put some fucking Crystal salt or dressing on them for fuck’s sake. If she really wanted her high-minded integrity intact she would have refused to do the show, or made a point of calling Megyn out, or Debra could just have ate her naked water fruit.
