Seinfeld actor John O’Hurley slammed Will & Grace star Debra Messing for her idiotic attacks on Trump, and said he is “embarrassed” for her.
O’Hurley, who played the hilarious “J. Peterman” character in 20 episodes of the famed 90s sitcom, was disgusted by the “obscene, lunacy” of Eric McCormack and Messing’s anti-Trumpism.
“Let me just say I’m embarrassed for both of them because I know them both, I’ve worked with Debra before. They’re both smart people. … They do wonderful work,” O’Hurley told Fox News on Monday.
“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,” O’Hurley said on Fox’s “America’s News HQ” Monday. “I think there is a nature among liberal thinkers to form packs, to form groups, whereas the conservative mind is basically an individual, and they’re tougher to find.”
O’Hurley just shook his head at the lunacy.
“Let me just say I’m embarrassed for both of them because I know them both, I’ve worked with Debra before. They’re both smart people… they do wonderful work,” he explained. “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.”
O’Hurley also noted that it is difficult to be a conservative in left-wing, extremist Hollywood.
“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,” he shared. “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.”
“Every time I have mentioned that I supported Trump in this election, people get vicariously angry at me, and they don’t believe that it’s possible that someone might think differently than they do,” O’Hurley said at the time. “There is a band of conservatism in Hollywood, but it leans so much to one side that it doesn’t allow for free discussion.”
Will & Grace star Eric McCormack recently stirred the pot with a tweet saying that Hollywood needs to blacklist any actor that dares to vote contrary to the left-wing agenda and Messing posted a demand that Trump’s Hollywood donors be outed and doxed. Messing has been posting maniacal posts on her Twitter account for nearly a decade.
