President Donald Trump has continued his feud with Will & Grace actress Debra Messing, calling for her to be dropped from NBC.

The leader hit out at Messing in a Twitter storm on Thursday, September 5, branding her “The Mess”.

Donald Trump wants Debra Messing ‘thrown off television’.

He wrote: “Bad ‘actress’ Debra The Mess Messing is in hot water.

“She wants to create a ‘Blacklist’ of Trump supporters, & is being accused of McCarthyism. Is also being accused of being a Racist because of the terrible things she said about blacks and mental illness.

“If Roseanne Barr said what she did, even being on a much higher rated show, she would have been thrown off television.

“Will Fake News NBC allow a McCarthy style Racist to continue? ABC fired Roseanne. Watch the double standard!”

Messing’s revived sitcom Will & Grace is already drawing to a close later this year, so it’s unclear what precisely the president is demanding she is sacked from.

The tweets were apparently sparked by a Fox News segment targeting Messing, which aired shortly before his comments.

Will & Grace stars called for famous Trump donors to be named.

Debra Messing and Will & Grace co-star Eric McCormack faced anger from conservatives after calling on The Hollywood Reporter to publish a list of attendees at a $50,000-a-head Beverly Hills fundraiser for Trump’s re-election campaign.

Messing wrote: “Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know.”

McCormack added: “Kindly report on everyone attending this event, so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with. Thx.”

Conservatives have also targeted Messing for approvingly tweeting about a road sign at a black baptist church that read: “A black vote for Trump is a mental illness. A white vote for Trump is pure racism.”

The Will & Grace stars have since defended themselves.

McCormack said in an Instagram post: “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.”

Sharing his message, Messing added: “My friend @eric_mccormack posted this today.

“It perfectly explains the intent behind each of our posts concerning the fundraiser. I am posting it here because, honestly, I couldn’t have said it better.”
