“Will & Grace” star Eric McCormack called on The Hollywood Reporter on Friday, asking them to publish the names of anyone attending a Tinsel Town fundraiser for President Donald Trump.

Responding to the news that the president would attend a fundraiser in Hollywood during Emmys week, McCormack tweeted, “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.”
Actress Kristy Swanson fired right back, expressing her disappointment that he would refuse to work with anyone over political differences of opinion. “It’s absolutely heartbreaking that you would say something like this & then ask The Hollywood Reporter to get on board with you (so sad),” she tweeted.

“Oh my goodness Mr. McCormack. I personally have never ever NOT worked with someone just because I had a difference with them politically. It’s absolutely heartbreaking that you would say something like this & then ask The Hollywood Reporter to get on board with you (so sad).”

Eric McCormack takes his Trump Derangement to a new level, one reflecting his industry's political bigotry.

Eric McCormack’s “Will & Grace” helped break down gay stereotypes. Even Vice President Joe Biden said as much.

The long-running show featured a platonic friendship between a single lady (Debra Messing) and her gay best friend (McCormack).

Here’s Biden, currently fighting fellow Democrats for the chance to battle President Donald Trump in 2020, recalling the NBC sitcom’s impact on the culture.
I think Will & Grace did more to educate the American public more than almost anything anybody has done so far. People fear that which is different. Now they’re beginning to understand.
This week, McCormack took a step in the opposite direction. He rushed to Twitter after learning President Trump planned to hold a fundraiser near La La Land.

That, apparently, could give the actor the ammunition he needs to fight back against those with whom he disagrees politically. And he hopes his friends follow his lead.

The message earned a few applause GIFs as well as condemnation from fellow liberals.

Actor Isaiah Washington, profiled in this probing episode of Red Pilled America, doubled down on behalf of his colleagues.
Fox News star Greg Gutfeld weighed in, too.
This isn’t an isolated incident.

A crush of stories shows how conservatives are treated like second-class citizens, or worse, in Hollywood today. That intensified following Trump’s election. They lose jobs and aren’t allowed to fully express themselves like their liberal peers.

Many right-leaning actors and crew members stay silent, both on the set and via social media. They fear risking key opportunities if they don’t toe the progressive line.

And while a select few actors, like Nick Searcy, are loud and proud of their conservative opinions, others think speaking up can have consequences.

You’d think the actor best known for a show about love and tolerance would understand that.

UPDATE: McCormack’s “Will & Grace” co-star, Debra Messing, doubled down on his Blacklist-style sentiment.
So did “Magnum P.I.” star Jay Hernandez. ๐Ÿ‘‡
