CNN is reporting that the White House held a conference call with Democratic supporters and activists last Monday to discuss strategy now that the Supreme Court had overturned Roe v. Wade. The mood was fatalistic, and actor Debra Messing wondered why there was any point in voting. What were they supposed to do now?

Debra Messing was fed up. The former “Will & Grace” star was among dozens of celebrity Democratic supporters and activists who joined a call with White House aides last Monday to discuss the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.

The mood was fatalistic, according to three people on the call, which was also co-organized by the advocacy group Build Back Better Together.

Messing said she’d gotten Joe Biden elected and wanted to know why she was being asked to do anything at all, yelling that there didn’t even seem a point to voting. Others wondered why the call was happening.

That afternoon, participants received a follow-up email with a list of basic talking points and suggestions of Biden speech clips to share on TikTok.

We’re fine if Messing gives up on voting.

TikTok videos will solve everything.
