Nearly a dozen Democrat presidential hopefuls took the stage in Detroit, Michigan, Tuesday evening for CNN’s presidential debate and the Hollywood left was not impressed.

“This feels like a West Wing episode fucked an auction,” said actor and former West Wing co-star Bradely Whitford.

“We’re five candidates in and so far I feel confident about a Trump re-election,” said actor-comedian Michael Ian Black.

Tuesday night’s debate saw author Marianne Williamson, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), former Rep. Robert Francis O’Rourke (D-TX), former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, former Rep. John Delaney (D-MD), and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock on stage.

Williamson stole the spotlight several times throughout the night but found herself the butt of the joke among the Hollywood left.

“Marianne Williamson is like if the trailer for the movie #Cats became a person. #DemDebate,” said ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.

To beat Trump, we need both bold ideas and messengers who can inspire the American people to rally behind them. There are only a handful of candidates who have both of these qualities. Let’s narrow this down.

Bernie & Elizabeth Warren just realized they’re Walter White & Jesse Pinkman and must now protect each other from all these people trying to off them both. #DemDebate #democraticdebate

I’m not sure Marianne Williamson should be President but I definitely want her to live in the White House and STARE at whoever *is* President.
