Actress Debra Messing has joined the chorus of celebrities and commentators demanding a blacklist of Trump’s inner White House circle, especially his soon-to-be former Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

In a tweet on Monday, the “Will & Grace” star threatened to boycott any channel or network that grants McEnany a platform, saying she will cease all support for any advertisers associated with them.

“If I ever see [Kayleigh McEnany] on a panel on a news show or hired by a network, I am immediately ceasing to support every single advertiser on that network,” tweeted Messing with the hashtag “Deplatform Hate.”

After the election, hardcore leftists quickly advocated that many of Trump’s close associates be blacklisted entirely; those sentiments only increased after the riot on Capitol Hill.

”You know, I think that Trump, um, tear-gassed peaceful protesters for a photo op. I think the 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,” said “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin way back in November. “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 within the Trump administration,” she continued. “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 um I don’t think it’s reminiscent of McCarthyism at all.”

In September of last year, Messing supported her “Will & Grace” co-star Eric McCormack when he ignited a firestorm on Twitter by publicly stating that he would no longer work with Trump supporters, and asking to be told who would be in attendance at a fundraiser for the president in Beverly Hills.

“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,” tweeted McCormack.

Shortly thereafter, Messing joined in on the Trump supporter hate-fest when she also demanded to know the names of those in attendance at the fundraiser, effectively supporting a blacklist against people who think differently from her. “Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know,” she tweeted.

After considerable pushback from both the Left and the Right, both McCormack and Messing semi-retracted their statements, accusing their critics of misinterpreting them.

“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 kid, 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,” wrote McCormack on Instagram.

Messing later tweeted her co-star’s message alongside the caption, “I couldn’t have said it better.”

After endorsing Joe Biden for president, Cindy McCain, wife of the late-Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said that the GOP has lost its way and hopes it gets back on track to being a party of “inclusion” after President Trump leaves office.

Speaking on “The View,” Cindy McCain’s daughter, Meghan, asked about the Arizona GOP’s recent talks about censuring Cindy, as well as former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Governor Doug Ducey.

“The Arizona GOP is in talks to censure you, as well as a former senator Jeff Flake and our wonderful governor Doug Ducey, and I think I’m actually included in the censuring because it said part of the McCain family. I don’t understand what’s going on. I’m was horrified and disgusted. Why do you think there’s such anger at our family and Jeff Flake and Doug Ducey?” asked Meghan McCain.

“Well, it’s the same thing. It’s about doing what’s right for the country, and certainly, Senator Flake and our Governor Ducey have made some very tough decisions lately and in the past, but it was for the good of our state and for our country,” replied Cindy McCain. “I’m in good company. Your dad was [censured] by them. I think I’m going to make t-shirts for everyone, and wear them, you know. You’ll be happy to know, Meghan, they did take the family part out. So you’re no longer included.”

When Meghan McCain expressed dismay over the censuring, Cindy McCain said that it’s indicative of the Republican Party losing its way.

“I think what we have seen here is when I began in the Republican Party officially, the Republican Party was the party of inclusion,” said Cindy McCain. “It was the party of generosity. It was the party of country first. We have lost our way. We have lost our way, and it’s time that we get back on track because we have always been the party that cared deeply, that loved what our country did and what it stood for. We have lost our way. I truly hope that as things progress on and we get further away from this mess that occurred, that we can do just that. We can get back on track and remind everyone that we are here for the country, not our party.”

Cindy McCain endorsed Biden on Twitter in September, saying that her husband “lived by a code” that put country over political party.

“My husband John lived by a code: country first. We are Republicans, yes, but Americans foremost. There’s only one candidate in this race who stands up for our values as a nation, and that is @JoeBiden,” she said.

“Joe and I don’t always agree on the issues, and I know he and John certainly had some passionate arguments, but he is a good and honest man. He will lead us with dignity,” she continued. “He will be a commander in chief that the finest fighting force in the history of the world can depend on, because he knows what it is like to send a child off to fight.”

Biden tweeted that he was “deeply honored” to have Cindy’s endorsement, saying that the election was bigger than a political party.

“Cindy — I’m deeply honored to have your support and your friendship. This election is bigger than any one political party. It requires all of us to come together as one America to restore the soul of the nation. Together, we’ll get it done.”
