Actor Jane Lynch has inserted herself into South Bend, Indiana mayor and out Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s political controversy over a “wine cave.”

In a tweet, the out comedian appears to defend Buttigieg from an attack by rival candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) that he accepts money from “billionaires.”

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

Lynch’s tweet was met with immediate scorn. Some wondered if Lynch was being sarcastic, but other people on Twitter found “proof” that she was serious because the actor donated more money to Buttigieg’s campaign than Warren’s.

In a subsequent tweet, Lynch joked that she had accidentally brought the wine cave back into the public eye.

But for everyone who charged that Lynch was pro-Pete and in his pocket, an hour later she pointed out another candidate she found presidential – Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN).
