Actress Debra Messing smeared White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders calling her a “traitor and a pathological liar” after she defended comments made by President Donald Trump about the intellect of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Speaking from Tokyo in with Chuck Todd of ABC’s Meet the Press, Sanders defended Trump’s assertion that he and Kim agree on the idea that Biden is a “low IQ individual,” after Todd accused him of “siding with a murderous authoritarian dictator over a former vice president in the United States.”

“Chuck, the president’s not siding with that. But I think they agree in their assessment of former Vice President Joe Biden,” Sanders responded. “Again, the president’s focus in this process is the relationship he has and making sure we continue on the path towards denuclearization. The president watched [Biden] and his administration with President Obama fail for eight years. He’s come in in two and a half, he’s cleaned up a lot of the messes that were left behind.”

Tweeting out an Axios report of the interview, Debra Messing accused Sanders of being a “traitor and a pathological liar.”

As part of her progressive activism, the Will & Grace star regularly rages against conservatives and the Trump administration. Last May, she warned that members of the Trump White House were “all going to hell” after reading an exaggerated NBC News report about proposed changes to federal hunting law in the state of Alaska.

“This is so DISGUSTING. THIS is where you are putting your time and energy???” she ranted at the time. “Killing sleeping bear cubs? What about health care? Gun violence Ag POC by cops? Women’s rights? KEEPING OUR ELECTIONS SAFE? Good G/d you are all going to hell.”
