(TheLibertyRevolution)- Add another liberal actress to the group of people trying to take a political stand.
Debra Messing, one of the stars from “Will & Grace,” said this week that should would boycott any network or channel that grants President Donald Trump’s press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, a platform.
On Monday, Messing tweeted:
“If I ever see @kayleighmcenany on a panel on a news show or hired by a network, I am immediately ceasing to support every single advertiser on that network. RT if you agree. #DeplatformHate.”
Many extremely liberal people in the spotlight have advocated for the boycott or blacklist of any people who were in Trump’s inner circle. The noise surrounding this call began following the presidential election and amped up to a new level following the attack on the U.S. Capitol building two weeks ago.
In November, Sunny Hostin, a co-host on “The View,” said:
“You know, I think that Trump, um, tear-gassed peaceful protesters for a photo op. I think that Trump ripped children from their parents. I think that Trump called NFL players sons of bitches. I think that — for exercising their First Amendment rights. I think those people in his administration that not only drafted some of those policies but were complicit in some of those policies shouldn’t be forgotten.
“People like Kirstjen Nielsen, people like Stephen Miller, people like Kellyanne Conway, people like Vice President Mike Pence who was woefully inadequate of his role as the head of the coronavirus task force, and people like Ben Carson and Betsy Devos. I don’t think those people should be able to profit from their experience with the Trump administration.
“I don’t think they should be forgotten. I don’t think we should look the other way. I think we need to remember because if you don’t remember things then past becomes prologue. I do think people need to be held accountable for their actions, and I don’t think it’s reminiscent of McCarthyism at all.”
Railing against conservatives who support or work with Trump is nothing new for Messing, though. Last September, her co-star Eric McCormack tweeted he wouldn’t work with anyone who supported Trump. He even requested that he be told who would be attending a fundraiser for Trump in Beverly Hills.
In response, McCormack tweeted at McCormack, saying:
“Hey, [THR], kindly report on everyone attending this event, so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with. Thx.”
She further tweeted to the people who ran that fundraiser:
“Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know.”
McCormack did take back his comments somewhat following some backlash. He posted on Instagram:
“I want to be clear about my social media post from last week, which has been misinterpreted in a very upsetting way. I absolutely do not support blacklists or discrimination of any kind, as anyone who knows me would attest. I’d simply like to understand where Trump’s major donations are coming from, which is a matter of public record.
“I am holding myself responsible for making educated and informed decisions that I can morally and ethically stand by, and to do that, transparency is essential.”
