Will & Grace Held a Special Election-Themed Reunion, and Karen Is a Trump Supporter

The cast of Will & Grace reunited for a mini-episode of the sitcom that was canceled a decade ago, and the message of the video is clear: Vote, honey. Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally reprise their roles as Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen to discuss the current election, with Karen a diehard Trump supporter (surprise, surprise) and Jack considering not voting at all.

The pop culture references remind us that this a Will & Grace for our times: Fifty Shades of Grey! Brangelina! Ryan Lochte! Mullally even gets in a Hamilton zinger: “Honey, if you don’t vote for Trumpy, there will be […] hordes of brown people pouring over our borders from every direction. I mean, it’s one thing if you’re sitting in the audience at Hamilton, but do you really want to see those people everywhere?”

The video, which was posted shortly before Monday night’s presidential debate, comes down pretty solidly pro-Clinton, but the overwhelming message of the reunion is that there’s no such things as a wasted vote—and that Grace still can’t sing.
