The video was uploaded on YouTube on September 26, 2016.

Synopsis

Will and Grace are sitting at the apartment sharing their frustrations about Donald Trump being a candidate for presidency of the United States. Karen comes in with flaglets and a Donald Trump purse, announcing "Make America bueno again!". She had just come back from out of town with her socialite friends including Trump and his wife Melania. Karen shares that she got the idea of building a wall around the mansion to keep her maid Rosario from getting into the main house from Trump. Rosario, who is in a wheelchair had called Will to sue Karen because she broke her ankle falling off the wall when Karen fired a warning shot towards her.

"Talk about a basket of deplorables."

Jack arrives complaining that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce took attention from his own break up with the guy he's been seeing. Joining in the debate, they learn that Jack does not strongly support either candidate and he is registered in Pennsylvania, a known swing state. Grace tells Jack that as a little girl she did not think she could become president of the United States and that Clinton can serve as an inspiration to children everywhere. Jack is reluctant to vote for Clinton because he doesn't like that she wears pants.

Finally, Will is able to convince Jack to vote for Clinton because Katy Perry likes her.

Notes

  • The setting fits into the timeline before Grace moves out of the apartment for the last time and Karen and Stan are still together, scenes which happened during the finale.
  • Jack rhetorically asks why does everything in the refrigerator looks 10 years old, alluding to the fact that the set was last used during the finale 10 years ago.
  • Karen claims that she helped Donald Trump "pick out Melania", who is Yugoslavian-born.
  • When encouraging Jack to vote for Clinton, Grace makes the "Just Jack" hand gestures.

  • Jack mentions Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce which was announced to the public earlier that week.

  • Will and Jack mentions swimmer Ryan Lochte's "attack" in reference to the incident that same week where Lochte's performance on Dancing With The Stars was interrupted by protesters from the audience.[2]
