With less than a week until the midterm election, NBC’s Will & Grace saw fit to poke fun at First Lady Melania Trump, insinuating she’s being held prisoner in the basement of the White House and trying to “tunnel her way out with the heel of her Jimmy Choo.” They also had gay character Jack (Sean Hayes) get a dig in at marriage, stating that it’s “just some weird thing straight guys came up with as a way to own a woman,” adding, “we got gay marriage, but let’s make marriage gay!”
NBC’s Will and Grace took on the issue of illegal immigration and the border wall on Thursday’s episode, “Tex and the City,” as well as painted Texas as a “homophobic” state that beats up gay kids “for sport.” A jailed illegal immigrant is also advised to “do what other immigrants do to try to get in legally, like…be white, or look white, or...marry the president.”
With the return of the NBC sitcom Will & Grace set to take place on Thursday at 9 p.m., the show’s cast and its producers -- stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally and creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick -- have made appearances on several television talk shows to promote the program’s revival.
