Proving that she is still the Supreme of her particular coven (no offense, Gaga), Jessica Lange went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to rip off Kellyanne Conway’s wig, throw it on the ground, stomp on it, rub it into the ground with her heel, I think she spit on it at one point, and then nonchalantly walk away. Actually, I suspect she was on Colbert to promote Feud: Bette and Joan on FX. She’s playing Joan Crawford opposite Susan Sarandon’s Bette Davis in Ryan Murphy’s latest television gaeity. But why not melt off POTUS’ dustiest cheerleader’s face while she was there? Here’s what she had to say about Ms. Conway. Someone pick up her face and mail it to her, if the United States Postal Service still exists and hasn’t been closed to assist in increasing military spending.
“I feud in my head with people. Like now I’m carrying on a feud with Kellyanne Conway — in my head. I mean the thing is, really, if you got a script as an actor, and that script came to you and they preface it by saying, ‘You’ve been offered this part.’ Your agent calls — ‘You’ve been offered this part.’ One of the most important women in the government right, you know, she’s a council to the president, she’s a spokesperson. And then you pick up the script and read it and think, ‘They’ve got to be kidding.’ You’ve got a scene where you talk about ‘alternative facts? You’ve got a scene where you imagine the microwave is turning into a camera? I mean, you go to the inauguration dressed as a nutcracker? You can just hear that conversation with the actor. ‘Are you kidding me?’ Nobody’s going to take this character seriously, she’s a joke.”
We hear you, Jessica.
