Trump: NBC Should Fire “Racist” Actress Debra Messing

The Hill reports:

President Trump is suggesting NBC should fire Debra Messing after the “Will & Grace” actress said the names of the commander in chief’s donors who attended a fundraiser should be publicly identified.

Trump tweeted that if Messing were Roseanne Barr, she would have already been fired despite having higher ratings for her program. Barr was fired by ABC last year for a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, the former Obama White House aide.

Messing had encouraged The Hollywood Reporter in a tweet last week to publish the names of attendees at an upcoming fundraiser for Trump in Beverly Hills after the news outlet first reported on the event in late August.
