A report leaked late last week that during the week of the Emmy Awards, President Trump will be hosting a fundraiser on September 17 in good ole 90210 Beverly Hills, California.
Of course, Hollywood elitists like Debra Messing and Eric McCormack of “Will & Grace” were furious and both of them tweeted they wanted the names of everybody attending this fundraiser so they can basically have the Scarlett Letter stained on them forever.
But a “Seinfeld” star blasted both Messing and McCormack for attempting to oust President Trump’s Los Angeles supporters.
Once the news broke that President Trump would be hosting a fundraiser for his 2020 re-election campaign on September 17th, which just so happens to be the same week of the Emmy Awards, Debra Messing chimed in on Twitter.
She wrote, “Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know.”
Messing’s co-star on “Will & Grace,” Eric McCormack, also supported her cause by tweeting, “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.”
Clearly they want to make an example of these people planning to attend the fundraiser because Los Angeles is one of the most liberal places in the country and these Hollywood elitists don’t want them around. They want them excommunicated for all intents and purposes.
Trump blasted Messing back though.
I have not forgotten that when it was announced that I was going to do The Apprentice, and when it then became a big hit, helping NBC’s failed lineup greatly, @DebraMessing came up to me at an Upfront & profusely thanked me, even calling me “Sir.” How times have changed!

But “Seinfeld” actor John O’Hurley was also furious with the way Messing and McCormack’s reaction to the fundraiser. O’Hurley was famous for playing the deep-voiced J. Peterman, Elaine’s rich boss, on “Seinfeld.”
In an interview with America’s News HQ he said, “I think they have the bully pulpit right now to say it out loud. I don’t think it permeates Hollywood to the degree that you think it is. I think there is a nature among liberal thinkers to form packs, to form groups, whereas the conservative mind is basically an individual, and they92re tougher to find.”
There’s no debate about that. It’s the truth. Hollywood wants to welcome illegal immigrants with open arms but they want right-leaning American conservatives out of their towns. That’s about as anti-American as you can get.
O’Hurley added, “Let me just say I’m embarrassed for both of them because I know them both, I’ve worked with Debra before. They92re both smart people… they do wonderful work. But, they’re pushing a case that falls apart from the sheer weight of its lunacy, as though the Hollywood community needs to be purged of this social and intellectual hygiene problem called conservative thinking. It underscores the fact that we aren’t receptive to a diversity of thought which is the exact opposite of what you feel the liberal way would be, and I find that obscene.”
At least there is some sort of voice of reason in that town. O92Hurley is an unapologetic conservative in Hollywood and Tim Allen once compared being of that political affiliation in Tinsel Town was similar to 1939 Poland.
O’Hurley acknowledged this too when he said, “It’s very difficult to be a conservative in Hollywood. Even though there are many of us, you do feel you are an island fighting the storm… all viewpoints must be observed and respected. At the same time we are supporting free thinking, we also have to support free receptors – people that will allow other ideas to infect them. Some of the best convos I’ve ever had on ‘Seinfeld’… were with Michael Richards who thinks totally different than I do. I couldn’t wait to present him with an issue because I was always interested in his perspective.”
We need more of that kind of political discourse. It doesn’t necessarily need to be ad hominem attacks and just outright anger. We should be further curious about each other’s points of views instead of blatant demonization.
