Jane Lynch recently caused an uproar on Twitter, where she declared that “class warfare is ugly” and defended billionaires in wine caves.

Lynch tweeted, “Hello everyone. Billionaires in wine caves have as much right to say who gets to be president as waitresses in diners and plumbers in my bathroom.”

She added, “Class warfare is ugly, Elizabeth Warren. Thanks for listening everyone.”

Lynch’s comment comes after Democratic Presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren ripped into South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg during Thursday night’s Democratic debate.

Warren stated in part that billionaires in wine caves shouldn’t be choosing the next president of the United States. She attacked the fact that Buttigieg held a fundraiser at the Hall Rutherford wine caves in California’s Napa Valley that according to the AP has “1,500 Swarovski crystals, an onyx banquet table to reflect its luminescence and bottles of cabernet sauvignon that sell for as much as $900.”


Warren stated:

“We made the decision many years ago that rich people in smoke-filled rooms would not pick the next president of the United States. Billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the United States.”
