Ten years after the finale of "Will & Grace", the cast reunites for the first time to take on the 2016 presidential election – Sep 27, 2016

The stars of Will & Grace have reunited for a special nine-minute video that encourages Americans to “Vote, honey.” The spot aired Monday night just prior to the first U.S. presidential debate.

In the short, Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally can be seen discussing the presidential election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

It begins with Will (McCormack) asking Grace (Messing) if she can “believe this is the world we live in?” before adding “How is it possible that Donald Trump is the nominee for president of the United States?”

Karen (Mullally) then prances in and declares that she’s a Trump voter.

“Honey, if you don’t vote for Trumpy, there will be wars and monsoons and locusts and 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?”

She’s then scolded for supporting Trump – especially because her maid Rosario is an immigrant, one of the groups Trump has been targeting in his campaign.

Jack (Hayes), who is also in the room, then questions whether he should vote for Clinton because “I don’t like that she wears pants.”

What ensures is a debate about each candidate’s merits (alongside some talk about recent pop culture topics like 50 Shades of Grey and the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split).
